CES 2019: LG launches 88-inch OLED display with dizzying 8K resolution

LG Display declares war on motion blur with big screen OLED panels

LAS VEGAS-LG showed off some eye-catching new TVs at CES 2019, starting with an ultra-thin, rollable display that pops up and vanishes with the push of a button.

LG Display showed a similar prototype concept in 2018 but this is the first time it has appeared as a consumer product.

The rollable OLED TV is a game-changer for a variety of reasons.

LG claims it will be suitably durable and has been tested to 50,000 rolls up and down - meaning it would last well beyond the average lifespan of a living room TV.

The LG Signature OLED TV R is housed inside a 4.2-channel 100W cabinet speaker system that offers Dolby Atmos surround sound and can be used as a music system independently to the television.

Turned off, the OLED TV R looks like a coffee table, or an empty TV stand.

"The "R" in the new Signature OLED TV R is about creating a revolution in home entertainment and redefining space through its ability to rise and roll-up at the touch of a button".

LG's latest rollable TV features three different viewing modes.

What is whopping 88-inch in size and comes with a mind-boggling 8K resolution? The TV space is one area where we haven't seen any new innovations in terms of the design.

On Monday, LG announced in a press release that it demoed the LG Signature OLED TV R (model 65R9) at CES 2019.

LG said the Signature TV is powered by its second-generation Alpha 9 processor and deep learning algorithm. The Alexa integration lets supported LG TVs function like a smart display or Fire TV device, showing information retrieved by Alexa on the screen and easily accessing Amazon Prime Music and Video content.

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