At a press conference to showcase the company's latest devices ahead of the opening of CES on Tuesday, LG also announced its 2019 televisions will offer support for both the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa smart assistants, as well as supporting Apple's AirPlay 2 wireless connectivity features for streaming to a TV.

The Signature OLED TV R comes with a flexible screen that rolls up to retract into a sound bar at the bottom.

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

In the Music mode, for example, users have access to basic playback controls, while the Clock mode shows the current date, time and weather conditions.

Government Shutdown Could Impact Tax Returns
The country's tax collector is among the federal agencies affected by the government shutdown, now in its second week. But if it drags on, taxpayers across the country likely will feel the impact - if income tax refunds are delayed.

LG said in a statement, ' The "R" in the new LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R is about creating a revolution in home entertainment and redefining space through its ability to rise and roll-up at the touch of a button. LG has something cool that you can do with the TV if you didn't want it rolled all the way out, with just the tip of the top of the TV popped out of its base acting as something LG calls "line mode".

To foster new growth drivers, Kwon said LG has been shifting its focus from LCD to OLED to target the growing premium TV market.

Nowadays, more and more TV manufacturers are adopting chip technology to improve image quality.

At the same time, LG also launched its first 88-inch 8K Oled TV. Whenever the TV is not in use, the screen can automatically roll down. Even in Zero View, users can enjoy music and other audio content which emanate from the 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system.
