LG to produce 'roll-up' Television

Ars Technica reports: [edited]

LG Signature OLED TV R (65R9), which has a display that can retract into its base. LG says to expect picture quality on par with its just-announced 2019 4K OLED lineup. That means 120Hz and AI image processing using LG's new Alpha 9 Gen 2 CPU. The TV's base houses a 4.2-channel, 100-watt soundbar with Dolby Atmos support.

The TV doesn't have to scroll all the way in, it can fold down to what LG calls 'Line View'. This has five modes: music, clock, frame, mood, and home dashboard. Music offers an interface for playing music from the base. Clock shows the time, date, and weather. Frame displays a scrolling line of photos streamed from your smartphone. The mood mode is for aesthetics, and home dashboard will allow access to some of LG's usual TV software features.

Cost: TBA. Available for purchase second half of 2019.
