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.

While the OLED TV R that showed up at CES 2018 was a prototype, LG is at the 2019 show with a market-ready product that will hit the market later in the Sprint for a colossal, premium price.

The OLED TV R is a nice piece of innovation that will surely pique your interest. 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.

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.

What is more, the OLED TV R has a functional mode that makes it act as a menu bar.

'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'.

Lastly, in Zero View, all 65 inches of the rollable OLED TV is hidden from view, tucked away in the base. The new LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R (model 65R9) can actually be curled up into its base, offering new viewing options. All of the company's new flagship TV lines will have Amazon Alexa support, accessible through the microphone on the TV's remote with the press of a button, like on most Amazon Fire TV products besides the Fire TV Cube (which supports hands-free Alexa).

Perhaps the bigger news is its 2019 LG TVs' built-in support for AirPlay 2.

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