LG unveils incredible 65-inch "roll-away" 4K TV

LG unveils incredible 65-inch

LG's David Vanderwaal said: "LG's rollable OLED TV goes beyond what a TV could traditionally offer".

LG has just unveiled the world's first rollable OLED TV with its new Signature Series OLED TV R, which arrives in a slick-looking brushed aluminum case, where a 65-inch rollable 4K OLED TV will slowly roll out, and then back into its case when you're finished with it. The screen has a 3.2.2 channel sound system embedded directly into the display panel which, when combined with Dolby Atmos technology, is reported to result in dynamic audio from a viewer's top, bottom, left and right.

We don't know much else about it at present, but will be catching up with the OLED TV R ourselves when we get to the show floor at CES itself. A show window comprising four 55 inch transparent OLED panels is being used to showcase OLED's commercial potential, with its 40 percent transparency making it a good fit for retail store window displays.

Coming to Line View, the Smart TV is partially unrolled, and users can manage specifics tasks that do not require a TV screen.

But the Sunday and Monday before are jam-packed with announcements that set the stage for tech's biggest show of the year. There is never a shortage of TV's at CES, eye-popping screen sizes and ever-dazzling resolution.

LG hasn't disclosed a price or debut date for the LG Signature OLED TV R yet, however, there's more information on the company's website here on specs and other key features. The TV space is one area where we haven't seen any new innovations in terms of the design.

This comes a year after LG added Google Assistant to its flagship TVs, which remains available on 2019 models.

LG has not announced pricing or availability for the OLED TV R or either new 8K TV, but they are expected to hit the market in the second half of 2019.
