LG Signature OLED TV R literally rolls up inside its own base

At CES in Las Vegas this week, LG is showing off what can be done with Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) TVs. The speakers, despite no having an upfiring component, sounded very similar to some of the lower-end Atmos systems I've heard - and that was without the TV playing any Atmos-compatible content.

The 4K panel is 120FPS capable, with LG powering the Signature Series OLED TV R with its second-gen Alpha 2 processor.

The TV comes with a hollow wooden frame that is created to sit underneath the unit.

Last year, its affiliate LG Display unveiled a prototype of a 65-inch rollable OLED display panel at the same event. Until now, their only option was to buy a TV of a smaller size.

This is television for people who hate having a large black box hogging up the living room. Even though there's no word on pricing, considering TCL is a budget TV brand, we could just see the first budgeted version of an 8K TV.

LG expects the rollable model 65R9 to hit stores some time in the second half of 2019, but it certainly won't come cheap. It's just as attractive as LG's screens from previous year, even if there hasn't been a massive change in technology - the panel itself hasn't undergone a massive revision, unfortunately. TCL prides itself on being one of the biggest sellers of affordable TVs with exceptional picture quality. But that display was 13-inches, had major limitations, and did not yet look like a consumer product.

LG has created two Crystal Sound technology OLED televisions generations already in the past. The massive 88-inch 8K OLED television isn't just large AND with more pixels than anyone now needs. The television comes in at 98 inches and 8K QLED resolution, giving it more than 33 million pixels. For instance, when you hold up an iPhone torch up to the screen, the TVs sensors recognise the extra light and noticeably change the saturation and colour tone curve of the picture.

The last feature is all part of LG's new WebOS 4.5 smart platform, which makes its debut on all of the 2019 LG UHD TVs.

Samsung made a slash on Sunday when it announced it was adding an iTunes app to its smart TVs.

By holding the microphone button and speaking into the remote, you can ask the TV all sorts of questions such as traffic updates, news headlines, weather forecasts and restaurant suggestions. You will not just get an incredible big screen but also incredible audio as well.

There's also a mode LG calls "Line Mode" where the display will drop down so that only about one-fourth of the panel is showing to control on-screen music controls and home gadget apps.

LG is further enhancing the experience with immersive audio, which is included in 2019 LG OLED TVs. All the ports including HDMI 2.1 are located on the rear side of the phone.
