At today’s media launch for their 2021 range of TV’s LG announced that the highly anticipated LG SIGNATURE R1 Rollable OLED TV is available for Australians to pre-order online at LG Australia from July 2021.
Custom made and custom ordered within six to eight weeks, Australian consumers with $130,000 to spare will have the opportunity to own the world’s first and only rollable TV, which features LG’s flexible OLED display technology.
Modern TV’s are huge and when they’re turned off the massive black screen dominates a room to the detriment of all other design aspects.
Hopefully this technology can reduce in price (a lot!) over time and be affordable within a few years for those of us who don’t own luxury mansions.
A revolutionary new experience, the LG R1 Rollable OLED TV features ground-breaking technology that not only reimagines what a TV is capable of but revolutionises the way people use their space.
The ultra-thin flexible OLED screen rolls into a state-of-the-art sound system and features the company’s self-lit pixel technology. LG OLED creates a vivid life-like image through millions of pixels that turn on and off to achieve perfect black and infinite contrast, delivering a realistic viewing experience without the restrictions of backlight technology.
The unit is a work of art fit to match a luxury home, with the TV appearing when needed and disappearing when not.
The display can roll out to three different heights – Full View, Line View and Zero View, each with a unique purpose but all with a stylish look that complements any space.
In addition, users can control the TV via voice command thanks to built-in LG ThinQ, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
