Last year, LG Display - a research arm of LG Electronics - showed us its rolling TV prototype, which can be wound up like a yoga mat into a box when not in use. In an effort to make large TVs less conspicuous, LG said that manufacturers are trying to create slimmer and unobtrusive screens.

Full View - a full-screen view with excellent sound and image quality.

Then, when the screen is needed, it rolls out of the cabinet to provide a superthin 65-inch 4K HDR OLED panel with the speaker system turning to TV duties.

TVs have been commercially available for 90 years.

Moving down to 4K UHD, the company is debuting something called Crystal Motion OLED in a 65 inch display, which is said to have the world's fastest MPRT (Motion Picture Response Time) of 3.5 milliseconds. The TV space is one area where we haven't seen any new innovations in terms of the design.

"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".

Inside the 65R9 is the next-generation of Alpha a9 processors that allow for deep learning picture quality and an ambient light detection feature that can actually adjust the PQ curve of a TV depending on the ambient brightness in the room - i.e. when it's daytime the TV will recognize the additional light and raise its max brightness to compensate, and reverse that process at night. With AirPlay 2, users can easily play videos directly from their Apple devices, iTunes and other video apps, music or photos to their LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R. With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

Line View - the screen is partially unrolled, allowing for functions like the clock, weather, photos, and music to be managed. Meanwhile, in the "zero view' model the display is completely hidden".

LG's 2019 TVs include the same built-in support for Amazon's Alexa smart assistant.

Although LG has undoubtedly saved plenty of news and announcements for its big conference, the company actually gave us a sneak peek at its 2019 TVs last week. The company is a global leader in electronics, information and communications products, with more than 117 operations around the world, and annual worldwide revenues of more than USA $49 billion.
