LG unveils Signature OLED TV R rollable display television at CES 2019

LG's extraordinary wallpaper-like Signature OLED TV W, released a year ago, is still priced over £3,800 for the 65-inch model.

The LG OLED TV R is set to hit the market in the second half of 2019, with no specific date, expectedly at a premium price yet to be made known.

LG Display showed a similar prototype concept in 2018 but this is the first time it has appeared as a consumer product.

When its rolled up, the 65-inch screen is completely hidden from view.

Today at LG's CES press event, one of the more intriguing announcements was the fact that LG is bringing its rollable OLED TV technology as an actual product later in 2019.

Osaka admits attitude problem after Tsurenko sets up Pliskova decider
Fifth seed Pliskova will be a strong favourite to regain the title she won in 2017 after dispatching Donna Vekic 6-3 6-4. Pliskova also paid tribute to her opponent, world number 27 Tsurenko, who came so close to victory.

'A rollable OLED TV is a true game-changer, liberating users from the limitations of the wall and freeing them to curate their own personal space which no longer needs to be reserved full time for TV viewing'. The "line view" mode partially shows the TV, letting you see the clock, picture or music controls without taking up the full space.

Defining the next generation of television, the signature OLED TV R gives home television viewers infinite possibilities in designing their ideal viewing space with its innovative rollable display. It will also be Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit enabled, like other 2019 LG TVs.

Another feature of the TV punted by LG is its built-in sound system, which packs 4.2-channel output (100W) and support for Dolby Atmos.

This comes a year after LG added Google Assistant to its flagship TVs, which remains available on 2019 models. The Alexa integration lets supported LG TVs function like a smart display or Fire TV device, showing information retrieved by Alexa on the screen and easily accessing Amazon Prime Music and Video content.

Lastly, LG also announced HomeBrew.
