LG's extraordinary wallpaper-like Signature OLED TV W, released a year ago, is still priced over £3,800 for the 65-inch model.

Not only is it possible for viewers to consume content in a traditional television form factor, the Signature OLED TV R also provides users with access to "Line View, ' which stows away most of the television's display and presents five modes of use, including 'Music, ' 'Clock, ' 'Frame, ' 'Mood" and 'Home Dashboard'.

Electronics company LG has unveiled a futuristic 4K TV that can roll down into its base and disappear from view at the touch of a button.

We've been consistently impressed by LG's OLED TVs in the past, since the panel technology produces ideal black levels and impressively wide color gamuts based on our lab tests. On top of a 65-inch 8K OLED display (pictured above and below), it's showing off a 65-inch 4K OLED panel with a "world's fastest" motion picture response time of just 3.5ms.

Wozniacki stunned by world number 152 Andreescu in Auckland
She followed that up with a 6-3, 6-3 semifinal victory over Hsieh Su-Wei, who is now ranked 28th in the world. The contest against Wozniacki was Andreescu's first match in history against a top-10 player.

"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", said LG.

Line View - the screen is partially unrolled, allowing for functions like the clock, weather, photos, and music to be managed. It will also be Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit enabled, like other 2019 LG TVs. While nothing much has changed from the prototype earlier showcased in 2018, however, LG has made some subtle modifications among which is the addition of a 100-watt Dolby Atmos speaker for powerful built-in audio to the base.

This comes a year after LG added Google Assistant to its flagship TVs, which remains available on 2019 models.
