Whether using it to watch, tv, play music, or style as an art piece for your living space, the OLED TV R gives consumer countless possibilities other TV's can't offer. The price and availability of the Signature Oled TV R has not been confirmed.

LG has not announced pricing or availability for the OLED TV R or either new 8K TV, but they are expected to hit the market in the second half of 2019.

Nowadays, more and more TV manufacturers are adopting chip technology to improve image quality. In the Line View, users can choose from features such as Clock, Frame, Mood, Music and Home Dashboard.


"A rollable TV is basically an OLED TV and it doesn't add material costs, but changing the operating mechanism could add to the costs", LG Electronics President Kwon Bong-seok said at a press conference.

Additionally, the Signature's "Zero View" configuration retracts the entire television's display, transforming the Signature OLED TV R into what amounts to a fairly powerful speaker system thanks to a 4.2-channel, 100W, front-firing, Dolby Atmos soundbar built into the device's aluminum and wood body. The South Korean company first showcased a prototype, a rollable OLED TV at last year's CES. LG Display is also wielding its Oxide backplane tech by producing a 27-inch 4K monitor with bezels just 0.11 inches thick on all sides, as well as a 13.3-inch 4K screen that would be ideal for laptops with a power consumption of just 2.8W.

Furthermore, the LG TVs will come with Apple HomeKit support, so users will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri voice assistant.
