LG did not reveal finalised launch details, but the TV will be priced for the "premium" category and is expected to ship later in 2019.

The 65-inch OLED screen of the newly unveiled LG TV can roll into and unroll from a base stand which functions as a sound bar. The new LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R (model 65R9) can actually be curled up into its base, offering new viewing options.

LG first showed off a prototype, rollable OLED TV at last year's CES, but the OLED TV R is the first model we've seen that appears to be a consumer product (though LG has not yet announced pricing or availability). The aim of the LG Signature OLED TV R is to provide customers with an advanced digital entertainment device that takes up minimal space. Leave the screen up while you binge watch the infinite endings of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, or hide the 65-inch inside the refined base station to enjoy everything else about your living room.

The TV can place itself in three viewing configurations, depending on what the user needs.

The prime minister also defended herself against critics by asking them to provide an alternative to the plan she had negotiated. The PM is seeking further legal assurances from the European Union but it has said negotiations will not be re-opened.

Line View allows the TV to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that do not require the full TV screen. With that said, even when the panel is out of sight, users can still listen to music and other audio content from the TV's 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system. The new TV is equipped with LG's second generation of Alpha 9 intelligent processor and deep learning algorithm for a stunning AI picture and sound quality.

Furthermore, the LG TVs will come with Apple HomeKit support, so users will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri voice assistant. Plus, with AirPlay 2, users can play videos from other Apple devices and access iTunes.

The company also showed off its new home brewing beer system for the first time, having first announced it past year.
