If you bought an LG OLED TV
in 2017, buyer's remorse probably won't be an issue.
And if you're waiting for a final round of price drops on a 2017 OLED TV, perhaps timed for the Super Bowl, potential buyer's remorse is not a good reason to wait for the new versions, IMO.
LG's 2017 OLED TVs are our all-time favorites for high-end buyers
, and the company's 2018 models look to continue that trend with a lineup, and feature set, that's mostly the same.
The top-end set for 2018, the W8 series, retains the ultra-thin "wallpaper" design that debuted last year, and the step-down E8 series is similar to last year's E7 design, albeit with a slightly slimmer sound bar. The less-expensive series, C8 and B8, keep the more standard-looking, while still super-thin, design.

New for 2018: Processing, high frame rate, voice control
LG's 2018 OLED TVs have mostly the same picture-affecting features as last year, including perfect black levels, similar light output and color gamut
/color volume capabilities, and compatibility with all three major HDR formats
. For audio all of the series above continue to support Dolby Atmos
, just like most of the 2017 sets, and none of them have HDMI 2.1
