CES 2019 is currently underway in Las Vegas. If you’re a fan of cool technology and gadgets, then you’re probably keeping close tabs on this exciting expo. One of the most exciting reveals of the show so far is the rollable LG TV, which the company has announced will finally go on sale in 2019.
Dubbed the Signature Series OLED TV R, it becomes not only the first rollable LG TV, but the first rollable OLED TV ever, according to LG.
In 2018, the rollable LG TV was still in the prototype phase, with the South Korean company now delivering on its promise to launch it to the public in 2019.
Not only can it roll-up into itself like a poster, it’s also voice-activated. It has three different modes, to let users choose the size of the screen and once you’re done watching, it can be easily stored out of sight. The three modes are:
- Full view – this opens up the entire 65-inch 4K display of the rollable LG TV.
- Line view – this mode rolls the TV down to hide most of the display, to free up space. In this mode a row of icons for music, clock, home, mood, frame, and more are displayed on the screen to create a relaxing atmosphere, where the space the TV takes up is minimised.
- Zero view – this is where the rollability (is that even a word?) of the new rollable LG TV shines. In Zero view, the rollable LG TV is stored away inside a base, which then doubles up as a speaker thanks to the 4.2-channel, 100W front-facing Dolby Atoms audio system.
The company believes that the rollable LG TV is a true game-changer when it comes to watching TV:
LG’s rollable OLED TV is a true game-changer, freeing users from the limitations of the wall and allowing them to curate their own personal space.
The entire rollable LG TV setup seems to have been designed with aesthetics in mind, delivering a premium product that looks good and functions well.
The premium bloodline is clearly evident in the entire unit, from the brushed aluminium casing to the quality wool speaker cover designed by Kvadrat of Denmark.
The company also announced its partnership with other companies, to bring a truly holistic experience when it comes to the rollable LG TV. Users will be able to use Amazon’s Alexa voice-assistance, as well as integration with Apple’s AirPlay and HomeKit.
With AirPlay 2, users can easily play videos directly from their Apple devices, iTunes and other video apps, music or photos to their LG Signature OLED TV R.
With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.
Some other notable announcements from LG’s TV lineup includes its “largest OLED TV” to date, coming in at a massive 88-inches. The company also unveiled its first 8K TV.
