The LG rollable display is now a real 65-inch TV

  • Published on Jan 7, 2019
  • The LG Display’s 65-inch rollable TV prototype came to CES last year. This year, LG Electronics is bringing it to market as its flagship 4K OLED TV for 2019. Consumers will be able to buy the finished Signature OLED TV R sometime this spring, although for an astronomical, premium price. It’s quite similar to last year’s prototype, but LG has refined the base station a bit and added a 100-watt Dolby Atmos speaker.

    A perverse amount to spend on a tv. An interesting product but what a waste of money..

    I think the main beauty of this product is setup more options for interior design idea, living in a 3 m x 6 m living space in Hong Kong, only be able to put a tv on a wall is a disaster when it comes to space conservation. I can consider putting this device in the center of the room like a coffee table furniture piece surrounding it by other furniture, facing the side of the wall that i never thought of.

    There is no innovation from the Big 3 manufacturers @Sony @Samsung @LG and you guys know there is absolutely NO focus on HDR, picture quality,10 bit color or BURN IN.... 8K is not feasible if 4K isn’t perfected
    AI integration & 8K shouldn’t be the focus in 2019...smh 🧐

    Longevity matters. A rollable display is gonna be kept longer than a smartphone with a motorized camera. A lifetime warranty JUST IN CASE the motor fails is a must.

    the problem is, people will procrastinate from turn on their tv,
    because they have to wait a colossal amount of time for the tv to be pop up
    but the good side is, you less distracted to watch tv
    but other than that, good job LG

    A great tv, LG is thinking outside the box and that what makes great inventions. I hope the amplifier is high end because often these companies just make good looking things and forget that the sound quality is as much as important as the image quality.

    Considering it "disappears" into a gigantic enclosure. Wouldn't it be the same to get one of those credenzas with an elevator that hide the TV inside. It's certainly cheaper. And the space underneath is mostly useless anyway.
