LG has confirmed the arrival of its OLED TV in the United States.
First announced three years ago at CES 2018, the company has confirmed that the single prototype is now real and will be available as a 65-inch TV capable of rolling up and down to disappear into housing – ideal for homes with limited space, hotels and other use cases. But there is a small catch.
The catch is that the model will go on sale for $100,000, so it’s out of reach for the money.
The OLED R model has already been surpassed in image quality and performance by newer LG models such as the G1 series, but it’s still an impressive feat and shouldn’t be laughed at.
The $100,000 unit includes Dolby Vision, supports 4K gaming at 120Hz, has an automatic low latency mode and variable refresh rate. All four HDMI ports on the model support HDMI 2.1.
What’s worth noting is that the template is supported for 50,000 deployments, which means the screen should remain untouched for the first 50,000 times you launch it. Similar to foldable smartphones, the screen will eventually suffer, but opening and closing the screen five times a day would mean the screen would last 27 years.
The company will officially open pre-orders in August, with shipping to follow weeks later.
