The CES 2019 is in full swing, and as expected, the event isn't much about mobiles phones, but rather we are seeing different tech giants unveiling smart TV, Laptops and gaming monitors. Also, the company not only confirmed the "Signature OLED TV R" the product name for the 65-inch roll-up TV, but also revealed that it will be available for purchase later this year.

The rollable OLED TV is 4K, but LG is still making the jump to 8K with two new, inflexible TVs.

"LG has created a TV with a display that uses revolutionary flexible screen technology that allows the screen to roll up and roll back out when needed", said LG.

Turned off, the OLED TV R looks like a coffee table, or an empty TV stand. The TV space is one area where we haven't seen any new innovations in terms of the design. The price for the LG product hasn't been released, but going off the company's $8,000 "wallpaper" OLED TV from 2018, this new television won't come cheap.

With support for AirPlay 2, users can easily play videos from iTunes and other video apps, music, photos and directly from their Apple devices to their LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R. With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

LG has officially announced that it is bringing its 65-inch rollable OLED TV to the market.

The TV runs on LG's webOS which is integrated with Google Assistant.

Its Signature OLED TV R is a next-generation telly which can roll itself up into a little box, unfurled when it's time for Eastenders and then put away at the press of a button. The 2019 OLED and Nanocell LCD TVs also support the WISA speaker standard, letting users build their own wireless surround sound systems with an adapter.
