The 16-17 P is already on the cusp of top-tier LCD performance from a screen/PQ perspective. I'd agree w/ the poster above who said a refresh will bring higher peak luminance, wider color gamut, and maybe more dimming zones, to keep pace w/ competitors. Likely not a quantum leap, as it's already currently superior to anything short of a Sony X930E. LG (non-OLED) and Samsung need not even apply at this point.
I think UI/Smart features will bring bigger changes. The tablet casting UI was a big experiment for 2016, and doesn't seem to have panned out. I suspect the 2017 built-in apps are somewhat of a stopgap, but are probably a good preview for what 2018 will bring. Along with a beefed up SoC, with the TVs designed to have built-in apps and smart features to being with. With TCL nipping at their heels, partnered up with (excellent) Roku, they really need to not 'miss' this time around on smart features and streaming functions.
Vizio doesn't make their own LCD panels, and noone makes their own OLED panels (except LG, of course), so I'm going to go with a "no" on that front. If/when a Vizio OLED happens, I'll be shocked if they don't launch it as a brand new 'Series" all by itself.
