How to watch LG's CES 2019 press conference live on Monday morning

The tech firm LG has shown off an astonishing "rollable" television at the annual Consumer Electronic Shows in Las Vegas. The South Korean company claims that its roll-up OLED TV offers the same picture quality, viewing angles and deep blacks as its standard OLED sets. Numerous products are years away from a spot in your living room (unless you are a fabulously wealthy early-adopter), but they give a peek into what we'll be binging on in the future.

LG has announced a new 8K OLED display at the CES 2019. After it showed off its rollable, futuristic OLED TV, LG has another feast for the eyes with its "LG OLED Falls" display, which features 260 LG OLED digital signage screens, in curved and flat configurations. There's no price yet for the device. The massive 88-inch 8K OLED television isn't just large AND with more pixels than anyone now needs. That's enough storage space for the screen, apparently, as well as the 4.2 Atmos sound system.

LG calls this mode "zero view" but there is also the option to hit "line view" which leaves the top of the TV poking out so you can access a narrow horizontal menu to do things like play music, look at photos or select an ambient display such as a fireplace.

Led coalition says Syria troop withdrawal has begun
Turkey considers America's Kurdish allies of the YPG militia - who were vital in the ground war against ISIS - a terrorist group. A convoy of about 10 armored vehicles and some trucks pulled out of Rmeilan, Syria, heading for and into Iraq.

In September, it rolled out software updates to all its 2018 model TVs making them compatible with Google Assistant. LG is committed to improving customers' lives with innovative home entertainment products led by its award-winning 4K OLED TVs, ULTRA HD TVs and webOS TVs. Based on the image in the live stream video, we can also presumably expect to see all of LG's latest smart home devices and appliances, including washing machines, refrigerators, cameras, and more. TechRadar is hands-on with 8K TVs and foldable, rollable displays, along with new laptops and Alexa-enabled smart gadgets.

Samsung unveiled a 98-inch QLED 8K TV model - it's largest yet - which is joined by 65-, 75-, 82-, and 85-inch models. The company is a global leader in electronics, information and communications products, with more than 117 operations around the world, and annual worldwide revenues of more than United States $49 billion. It also debuted the Q900, a 98-inch 8K QLED television.
