The TVs must feature or have curved display panels and are 2018 models. We decided not to include the 2017 and older models given that we want to list the best and latest of this year.

When we talk about curved TVs, the first brand comes to mind is Samsung. Therefore, the common thinking is that Samsung manufactured the first curved TV.
