CES 2019: Samsung to bring 8K TVs to local market

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

LG Electronics has redefined the television viewing experience with the introduction of the world's first rollable OLED TV at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019.

LG showed flexible displays and OLED screens for several exhibitions CES, but it was just a demonstration and nothing more.

To foster new growth drivers, Kwon said LG has been shifting its focus from LCD to OLED to target the growing premium TV market.

Details on pricing and availablility were not available at press time, but the company does expect to begin shipping the set later this year. In this mode which is dubbed the Line Mode, instead of the display completely retracting into the base, it drops down three-fourths the way so it can be used for on-screen music controls with the option to control your smart home gadgets.

LG are also using the deep learning capabilities to enhance sound quality. The speakers, despite no having an upfiring component, sounded very similar to some of the lower-end Atmos systems I've heard - and that was without the TV playing any Atmos-compatible content.

With the introduction of last year's LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W, LG stripped away the traditional concept of a TV, focusing on the simplicity of the screen. The never-before-seen user experience gives home TV viewers infinite possibilities in designing their ideal viewing space.


LG Electronics is a global leader in television and audio video systems. "And by leveraging Dolby's latest imaging innovation which intelligently adjusts Dolby Vision content, LG TVs deliver a compelling HDR experience under varying ambient light".

LG is keen to make the TV the centrepiece of a connected living room and is leading the charge when it comes to imbuing its TVs with third party smart assistants. Users can use their voice to get things done with Amazon Alexa, a new addition to LG's AI TV lineup.

Samsung also announced it will offer iTunes movies and TV shows and Apple AirPlay 2 support on 2019 TV models.

With Apple HomeKit support, customers will also be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

Around the back, you'll find HDMI 2.1 ports which will support 4K120 playback once it's available via an update later this year.
