South Korean multinational electronics company LG has recently launched its revolutionary Rollable OLED TV which is the world’s first of its kind. The ground-breaking TV has 65 inches’ screen and a 4k flexible panel which disappears into its compact unit when not in use. It’s a new age smart TV with built-in Alexa and Google assistant along with several other features.
This futuristic signature OLED TV has plenty of connectivity options too for added convenience. The panel uses self-lighting pixel technology to get that sharp picture and individual darkening control for those perfect blacks. Three viewing formats: full view, line view, and Zero view are provided to choose from whose pixel ratios are not yet revealed.
The full view enables a stretched-out view of its complete 65- inch scale whereas Line View provides you a slight glance at a segment of the screen for accessing some of the TV apps tailored for the cut-down view, such as weather, time, and music. Zero View eliminates the display completely gaining control over music apps.
LG claims the Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) feature and lower response time (less than 1ms). Having said that, there’s a prominent lack of G-sync support that other LG products claim to have. Also, the lack of Free Sync makes it not quite suitable for gaming purposes. Although the prototype was first showcased at the 2018 CES, the launch of the final product was delayed from the estimated time given with an added advantage of 100-watt Dolby Atoms 5.1 surround sound.
In case you are looking for alternatives, the Samsung 4K projector at $6,500 can be considered which is much more budget-friendly considering the $87,000 (approximately Rs. 64,07,680) LG TV. From my point of view, it may not be a very efficient gaming TV right now and it’s hella expensive but OLED is for games and kudos to LG for taking the risky route for fixing all our wall-related televisual woes.
