CES 2019 LG launches 88-inch OLED 8K display

8K TVs. LG's CES 2019 booth is screen-lover's dream, with the most eye-popping display being a giant, immersive series of screens LG dubs the "waterfall".

The rollable TV called Signature Oled TV R was unveiled previous year as a concept and looks like a huge sound bar that has the TV rolled out on its top.

But for people who can afford it, the rollable "TV of tomorrow" is likely to prove very desirable indeed. According to LG, the flexible OLED panel can handle 50,000 rollings and unrollings, or over 34 years of rolling and unrolling it four times a day.

South Korean chaebol LG unveiled a rollable Oled TV during its press conference on Monday (Jan 7), a day before the start of the world's largest consumer electronics show, CES 2019.

What is more, the OLED TV R has a functional mode that makes it act as a menu bar. The screen has a 3.2.2 channel sound system embedded directly into the display panel which, when combined with Dolby Atmos technology, is reported to result in dynamic audio from a viewer's top, bottom, left and right.

'A rollable OLED TV is a true game-changer, liberating users from the limitations of the wall and freeing them to curate their own personal space which no longer needs to be reserved full time for TV viewing'. 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. It will also be Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit enabled, like other 2019 LG TVs.

LG did not reveal finalised launch details, but the TV will be priced for the "premium" category and is expected to ship later in 2019.

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