Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has already kicked off and companies have started to amaze with their innovation. CES 2015 is seeing a lot of innovative products especially from TV makers.

Sony has introduced the world's thinnest TV at 0.2 inches. These TVs will be coming out this year. Practically, the TV will be as thin as your smartphone.

"It's thin. It's elegant. At 0.2 inches, it is the world's thinnest TV and is even thinner than our Xperia smartphones," Sony Electronics President Mike Fasulo. "It's ultra thin floating style makes it seem to merge into your wall."

The pricing out these TVs were not available immediately.

Samsung managed to amaze with an 85-inch prototype of a TV that is being dubbed "Bendable TV." The demo showed the prototype TV switching from a flat panel to a curved screen (and vice-versa) with a touch of a button.

Apart from the Bendable TV, Samsung also launched 105-inch curved LCD TV sporting 21:9 aspect ratio and a 5120 x 2160 resolution.

There's a reason behind companies focusing on 4K TVs. According to a study, shipments of ultra high definition TVs are expected to reach four million units in 2015. The study also suggests that around 33 percent of the customers may purchase a 4K TV within next three years.

Apart from Sony and Samsung, LG Electronics is also launching large screen OLED TVs.
