LG Rolls Out World’s First Rollable OLED TV

57

LG has been able to make a 65-inch TV that essentially appears out of thin air. The world’s first rollable OLED TV.
Expected to be available during the second half of 2019, the LG Signature OLED TV R (65R9) starts as an elegant aluminum box with the display hidden — called Zero View. But with a push of a button on the remote control, a gorgeous 4K TV emerges, complete with top-notch contrast and support for all the major HDR standards.
The panel is just about 3 mm thick, and the unrolling process is impressive.
In Full View mode, you can do everything you’d normally do with an LG smart TV, plus there’s some cool new features that are part of the new webOS 4.5. This includes a Dashboard view that lets you see all of your connected devices, and there’s also support for both Alexa and Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. This is in addition to Google Assistant.
The interface is improved, too, as it can automatically re-order the apps along the bottom of the screen based on the ones you use most often.
It comes with Line View, a mode which retracts the screen into the base about three-quarters of the way. In this mode, you can listen to music, look at photos and enjoy fun animations and sounds in a Mood menu that includes everything from Rain to Fireplace.


And the sound is powerful. The OLED TV R packs a 100-watt sound system in its base, and its uses both AI sound and Dolby Atmos support to give you a very wide soundstage.  We’re talking virtual 5.1 surround sound. Plus, you can use your phone to beam music to the TV via Bluetooth, though you can’t initiate the transfer unless the TV is rolled out.
