LG Debuts TV Of Tomorrow With World's First Rollable OLED TV

Rolled up the screen completely disappears.                  Sarah Tew  CNET

A year ago we included LG's rollable TV concept in our most mind-blowing gadgets from CES 2018, and now the television of the future is back at the popular tech expo in Las Vegas, and is ready to be the companies flagship 4K OLED TV for 2019.

The tech firm wrote: 'LG has created a TV with a display that seems to magically appear and disappear, a revolutionary innovation that seems to defy logic.

The Signature OLED TV R is a departure from regular flat-panel TVs that already exists. While no pricing or release information was given at press time, we do have a much better idea of what to expect from this unique TV.

Line View allows the TV to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that do not require the full TV screen. "The panel is of 65" dimensions - we now don't have any more information about the technical specifcations of the panel, other than it is seemingly powered by LG's newly announced second generation Alpha9 SoC. The TV's base-the same one it rolls into-houses a 4.2-channel, 100-watt soundbar with Dolby Atmos support. After it showed off its rollable, futuristic OLED TV, LG has another feast for the eyes with its "LG OLED Falls" display, which features 260 LG OLED digital signage screens, in curved and flat configurations.

With the growing popularity of OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology in the premium TV market, LG Display is confident of maintaining a competitive edge over Quantum Dot OLED (QD OLED) panels to be produced by domestic rival Samsung Display.

This year, companies including LG, Samsung, and Sony showed-off their latest prototypes at the annual consumer electronics show. 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".

Voice control continued to be the popular addition for all the TV companies, as they also added more support for popular voice assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa. It will also be Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit enabled, like other 2019 LG TVs.

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.
