Samsung’s 98-inch QLED 8K TV debuts at CES

Not only is it possible for viewers to consume content in a traditional television form factor, the Signature OLED TV R also provides users with access to "Line View, ' which stows away most of the television's display and presents five modes of use, including 'Music, ' 'Clock, ' 'Frame, ' 'Mood" and 'Home Dashboard'. Pressing a button on the remote makes the OLED screen pop up, unrolling from inside the base over about 10 seconds until it stands as a fully functional, flat 65-inch 4K TV on top of a speaker stand. A show window comprising four 55 inch transparent OLED panels is being used to showcase OLED's commercial potential, with its 40 percent transparency making it a good fit for retail store window displays.

The rollable TV called Signature Oled TV R was unveiled past year as a concept and looks like a huge sound bar that has the TV rolled out on its top.

"We will set prices based on how much consumers are willing to pay for the rollable TV, rather than seeking profits", he added.

Samsung Smart TVs to debut iTunes app and AirPlay2 support
The move means iTunes movie and TV show libraries will be accessible from 2018 and 2019 smart TVs manufactured by Samsung . Watching content on iTunes requires some form of Apple device, whether it's an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.

And a new USB-C portable monitor, together with a bunch of LCD panels, round out LG Display's CES 2019 offerings. Both support Dolby Vision and Atmos, use the Alpha 9 generation 2 processor with ThinQ AI and webOS 4.5, and, of course, have 7,680-by-4,320 resolution with four times the pixels of 4K.

LG is further enhancing the experience with immersive audio, which is included in 2019 LG OLED TVs. This is a big start for 8K TVs, and could be a big start for rollable TVs.

Another display by LG is wowing attendees at CES 2019. Samsung says sales of TVs with screens above 75 inches have more than doubled in the United States over the past year.
