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


The TV of tomorrow is here: LG just launched the world's first rollable OLED TV, which will go on sale later this year.

The rollable OLED TV is a game-changer for a variety of reasons. According to LG, the flexible OLED panel can handle 50,000 rollings and unrollings, or over 34 years of rolling and unrolling it four times a day.

'The "R" in the new LG Signature OLED TV R is about creating a revolution in home entertainment and redefining space through its ability to rise and roll-up at the touch of a button.

What is more, the OLED TV R has a functional mode that makes it act as a menu bar. The TV space is one area where we haven't seen any new innovations in terms of the design. In addition, the retractable screen gives users three different viewing options: Full View, Line View and Zero View.

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.
