LG Is Working on First Expandable TV

LG recently patented a "new roll-up screen TV," which would allow the screen to unfold in your living room. This would take the form of a motorized roller hidden in a rather compact case.

LetsGoDigital got their hands on a design patent granted to LG on June 4, 2021, by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The TV in question looks very similar to the LG Signature OLED R line, except that it can be unrolled on its side.

Although LG has stopped producing smartphones, the Korean manufacturer still has a strong presence in the TV market. It has always been one of the most innovative manufacturers on the market. For example, we saw an invisible OLED TV screen for the home at CES 2021.

LG Wants to Release a Horizontally Folding TV

At CES in January 2018, the company also lifted the veil on the very first OLED TV that can be rolled out from its own stand. Since then, the 65-inch LG Signature OLED R went on sale late last year in South Korea. It would be possible to get this atypical television set for a few months for an exorbitant price of $ 100,000.

As can be seen in the image below, this new model will have the particularity of being able to be unfolded and folded horizontally. Thus, once the user has finished watching his film or series, the panel will automatically be stored in the base. So it looks like LG is not done with roll-up TVs.

In addition to being able to unfold in your living room, the screen is also devoid of bezels, which allows for a very immersive experience. On the back, the screen appears to be supported by a T-shaped frame mounted on the base. Finally, just like in the previous model, we also expect the plinth to house a speaker system. As a reminder, the LG Signature OLED R is still the only rollable model on the market since none of its competitors has yet presented a similar device.
