Hardware news The most expensive television in the world is out and costs the price of a small apartment
For 100,000 dollars you can afford a lot … like an LG OLED TV R: It is a very high-end roll-up model that is not intended for retail sales, as you can imagine .
In January 2018, the LG brand co-presented an ambitious television prototype at the CES in Las Vegasa 65-inch OLED display that is flexible enough to curl up completely in a closet. A high-tech device that feeds the fantasies of technology enthusiasts, moviegoers and gamers and that is now a reality in the catalog of the South Korean manufacturer: It is
LG SIGNATURE OLED R
LG OLED R, a TV like no other
This colossal price for a television can be explained by the concentration of innovation it contains: Flexible OLED screens are still rare on the market and apart from a few Samsung smartphones, only a few products are available to the general public. The 65-inch ultra-thin screen of the LG OLED R has features self-emitting pixels which offer a very wide viewing angle, contrast and optimal colors. In addition, the screen can be very thin, which is especially useful for rolling it up without damaging it. The piece of furniture in which it is “stored” is nothing more thana 100 watt soundbar that functions as a home theater 4.2
Otherwise, it is compatible with many multimedia systems including Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple Homekit. This makes it possible to turn this amazing TV into a hub that can be used to control the home automation of the house in which it is installed.
Far from being the best LG TV for video games!
Apart from the fact that you have to pay 100,000 dollars to buy the LG OLED R, you have to be patient to make use of it. Like all future-oriented and expensive high-tech products This television is made to order by the manufacturer who announces a delivery time of eight weeks. A situation that also explains the exorbitant price, because it is generally mass production that makes it possible to reduce the cost of consumer devices.
The irony of all of this is undoubtedly the fact that the LG SIGNATURE OLED R isn’t even the best LG TV for playing video games. Although there are plenty of HDMI 2.1 ports to hook up the new generation PS5 and Xbox series consoles as well as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) technology, AMD’s Variable Fresh Rate (VRR) and FreeSync are in turn aimed at absent subscribers. Shame as they can be found on LG’s latest 4K Ultra HD TVs like this one
65 inch LG OLED65G1, much cheaper and perfect for playing video games.
Nevertheless, this roll-up television is a dream and sets the tone for what awaits us in our living rooms in the more or less near future.
