The rollable TV technology that LG showed off at CES earlier this year will be released as a consumer product in 2019, according to a Bloomberg report.
The TV display itself is rolled up like a poster in its enclosure when not in use. It un-rolls and raises itself upward with a press of a button.
It may seem like a novelty, but there are some actual realistic applications for a rollable TV.
The rollable OLED TV technology that LG showed off at CES earlier this year will become a TV you can actually buy in 2019, according to Bloomberg, which cited a source familiar with the matter.
LG's rollable TV was among the most popular and sensational products at CES 2018. With the press of a button, a large 65-inch TV display would emerge from a narrow rectangular box. With another press of a button, the TV display would lower itself back into its rectangular enclosure.
There's no word on pricing at the moment, and it's easy to expect an astronomical price tag. We'll have to wait and see what LG announces in 2019.
