LG Unveils the World’s First Rollable OLED TV

At CES 2019 in Las Vegas, LG Display CEO Han Sang-beom said Samsung's entry into the OLED market would rather spur technological advances in terms of equipment, materials and a supply chain. In an effort to make large TVs less conspicuous, LG said that manufacturers are trying to create slimmer and unobtrusive screens.

The OLED TV R is a nice piece of innovation that will surely pique your interest. However, the remaining new technology introduced by the company may most likely appear in products in the current year itself. The new TV is equipped with LG's second generation of Alpha 9 intelligent processor and deep learning algorithm for a stunning AI picture and sound quality. While nothing much has changed from the prototype earlier showcased in 2018, however, LG has made some subtle modifications among which is the addition of a 100-watt Dolby Atmos speaker for powerful built-in audio to the base.

Whether using it to watch, tv, play music, or style as an art piece for your living space, the OLED TV R gives consumer countless possibilities other TV's can't offer.

LG hasn't announced a price for the TV R yet, though reports that the company said it would cost more than the 8K TV announced last week-that TV's price hasn't been announced either, but given that the 8K LG will compete directly with, we're betting the rollable TV won't be within most people's reach.

He also released the song Mona (I Need You Baby) and toured the United Kingdom and Europe with his band Check 1-2. Mr McLachlan denied the claims, suggesting they were made for "financial reasons" or to "gain notoriety".

LG did not disclose pricing for the roll-up television. LG has something cool that you can do with the TV if you didn't want it rolled all the way out, with just the tip of the top of the TV popped out of its base acting as something LG calls "line mode".

Lastly, not to be outdone by Samsung's announcement that its 2019 TVs will support iTunes on its Tizen smart TV platform, LG says that it will support AirPlay 2. just stopping short of creating an iTunes app on the LG TV Store. This TV "reimagines space" and "addresses the human need for an aesthetically pleasing environment", LG's USA senior director of product marketing Tim Alessi told the audience this morning.

With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

Around the back, you'll find HDMI 2.1 ports which will support 4K120 playback once it's available via an update later this year.
