TV’s been there for us since the beginning and now, it’s seeing us through this pandemic. The lockdown’s had us rely on our new best friends lately, like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Prime Video. Whether we’re binging “Friends” or on a James Bond marathon, streaming services have kept us busy during these stressful times. With theaters closed, at limited capacity, or not worth the risk, your TV is now even more important for entertainment.
It’s no shocker that TVs have been getting larger and more advanced, so what’s a tech giant to do to stand out? LG is causing a stir with the world’s first rollable TV, finally available in limited quantities. LG first showed a prototype for the rollable TV at CES 2018. It was reported that it would be shipping-ready the next year, but no luck then. This ambitious display is now ready to grace your home at a hefty price of 100 million won, or more than $87k.
A turning point in technology and entertainment
The LG Signature OLED R features a liquid smooth 65-inch flexible OLED display. It’s described by LG as “the most innovative development in television technology in decades.” It’s no overstatement either. The OLED display has self-lighting pixel technology and individual dimming control for the best of the best in picture quality.
Another plus of this TV is that it looks great in any room due to its sleek design top to bottom, inside and out. You no longer need to choose between mounting your TV on the wall or buying a stand. The LG Signature OLED R has an aluminum base that can be personalized with an engraving. You can even choose the shade of the wool speaker cover from four colors: Signature Black, Moon Gray, Topaz Blue, or Toffee Brown.
The flexible nature of the display allows it to retract partially or fully, so it can adapt to different aspect ratios. When partially displayed, you can adjust the TV’s mode to music, clock, frame, mood, lighting, or your home dashboard. When fully retracted, the screen disappears, so all there’s left is a stylish piece of art. Even when it’s retracted, you can still enjoy the rich sounds from the remarkable speaker. The TV is currently available at seven consumer electronics stores throughout South Korea. Buy Here
