That’s a television control she’s clutching in case you’re wondering

LG's new Signature Series OLED TV R will be available in the second half of 2019, with no details on price. It offers users three modes - Full View, Line View and Zero View.

Although Samsung has exhibited 8K TVs during the IFA last September and quickly brought them to market, they cover 65-inch, 75-inch, 82-inch, and 85-inch. The screen has a 3.2.2 channel sound system embedded directly into the display panel which, when combined with Dolby Atmos technology, is reported to result in dynamic audio from a viewer's top, bottom, left and right.

There's also a mode LG calls "Line Mode" where the display will drop down so that only about one-fourth of the panel is showing to control on-screen music controls and home gadget apps.

The rollable OLED TV is a game-changer for a variety of reasons.

Korean tech giant LG has unveiled a TV which lets families reclaim their living rooms - by rolling up like a window blind when not in use.

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

LG is further enhancing the experience with immersive audio, which is included in 2019 LG OLED TVs. The 2019 OLED and Nanocell LCD TVs also support the WISA speaker standard, letting users build their own wireless surround sound systems with an adapter. The Smart TV from LG comes loaded with Amazon Alexa voice assistant and it also supports Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit.

The LG HomeBrew uses pods containing yeast, hop oil and flavouring and a "optimised fermentation algorithm" in the autonomous device to create up to five litres of beer in around two weeks, the company said.
