LG launches its first rollable TV, the 65" OLED TV R

As was reported last month, LG Electronics announced its first rollable TV (and the world's first rollable OLED device), the 65" Signature OLED TV R. LG's new TV can roll up into its base, and has three viewing options - full view, line view and zero view. In Line View, there are six different modes, in which the TV can show the weather, the time, a home dashboard and more.

LG's OLED TV R, like the rest of LG's 2019 OLED range, is based on the company's 2nd-gen Alpha 9 intelligent processor the enables LG's ThinQ AI to offer new display algorithms and Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant. The TV also features HDMI 2.1, high frame rate (HFR) support, enhanced audio return channel (eARC), variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM). LG's flagship OLED also feature Dolby Atmos for immersive entertainment.


LG Did not yet disclose when the OLED TV R will be available, and for what price.

In addition to a home theater screen, I expect other applications for a rollable OLED screeen. I still remember the rollable tablets/smartphones in the TV science fiction series "Tek Wars", and "Eartth: Final Conflict". So we may see them appear by 2021 as reality.
