LG Rollable OLED TV R to Ship Globally in 2020
Perhaps one of the most stunning new tech products we had the chance to lay eyes on this year, the LG Rollable OLED TV R is a gorgeous display of technological marvel and sheer innovation. As the product was unveiled during CES 2019, LG told us that the TV would hit retail later this year—a statement that, now according to reports, still remains true, albeit not on the scale we might’ve been lead to believe.
According to a report from Tom’s Guide this week, the OLED TV R will hit stores in Korea. Citing information delivered to them by Hyun-Jin Kim, head of LG’s Planning & LG SignatureR Task Team, the report stated that the TV won’t launch globally until 2020. Specific countries and timing weren’t specified, and we’re still waiting on pricing details as well.
Meanwhile, LG has been hard at work filing trademarks for some rollable monikers. First spotted by the Nashville Chatter Class, LG has filed trademark paperwork with the European Union Intellectual Property Office for names that included “The Roll,” “Bi-Roll,” “Double Roll,” “Dual Roll,” “E Roll,” “Signature R,” “R Screen,” “R Canvass,” “Roll Canvas,” and “Rotolo.”
