LG showed off a prototype of the concept at last year's CES, but the finished product, officially called the LG Signature OLED TV R, is even more impressive: It's a 65-inch 4K OLED TV, with HDR and the same smart TV capabilities as LG's other sets. The LG Signature OLED TV R combines a speaker-filled stand with a flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen that literally rolls up when not in use.

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

The magical roll-up TV will allow owners to keep the screen in three positions: fully tucked away, unfurled in all its majesty and a "partially unrolled" state where a little bit of screen is peeping from the box.

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

AGP quits Assam alliance, no threat to BJP-led govt
Former chief minister Tarun Gogoi of the Congress said the AGP should join hands with other parties to protest against the Bill. The AGP had entered into an alliance with the BJP before the 2014 polls and was opposed to the Bill since the beginning.

LG Display hasn't released any images of it 88-inch Crystal Sound OLED display at this time, but has shared some details. In this Live mode, it has a dashboard consisting of Clock, Frame, Mood, Music and Home.

"A rollable TV is basically an OLED TV and it doesn't add material costs, but changing the operating mechanism could add to the costs", LG Electronics President Kwon Bong-seok said at a press conference.

LG said the Signature TV is powered by its second-generation Alpha 9 processor and deep learning algorithm.

Another feature of the TV punted by LG is its built-in sound system, which packs 4.2-channel output (100W) and support for Dolby Atmos. And no, screen savers that display museum paintings aren't the answer (those are arguably worse, like fake wood paneling).
