After dropping some details on their 2019 TV offering a few days ago and showing off their first 8K TV at IFA, LG officially unveiled its first commercial-grade 8K OLED TV: the Z9 OLED.

"LG has created a TV with a display that uses revolutionary flexible screen technology that allows the screen to roll up and roll back out when needed", said LG.

OLED uses self-lighting pixels that can be turned on and off individually for exact control of image brightness and quality, delivering infinite contrast ration optimized for high-dynamic range content.

LG's 2019 OLED and top range LCD TVs will include full-spec HDMI 2.1 ports. The company plans to release the new TV this year.

A demonstration showed that the 65-inch (165 centimetre) screen could disappear completely into the base, extend just part way to display photos, act as a control screen for smart devices, or rise completely for full viewing. The never-before-seen user experience gives home TV viewers infinite possibilities in designing their ideal viewing space.

LG are also using the deep learning capabilities to enhance sound quality.

With the growing popularity of OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology in the premium TV market, LG Display is confident of maintaining a competitive edge over Quantum Dot OLED (QD OLED) panels to be produced by domestic rival Samsung Display. Even in Zero View, users can enjoy music and other audio content which resonate from the 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system.

Today during LG's keynote at CES 2019, the company announced plans to start shipping its rollable OLED TV this year. And if you're looking for third party smart home integration, you'll find support for Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, iTunes and AirPlay.

The video below shows the new TV in all its beauty, but there's one thing we don't know for now.

LG has created two Crystal Sound technology OLED televisions generations already in the past. LG is committed to improving customers' lives with innovative home entertainment products led by its award-winning 4K OLED TVs, ULTRA HD TVs and webOS TVs. The company is a global leader in electronics, information and communications products, with more than 117 operations around the world, and annual worldwide revenues of more than United States $49 billion.
