LG wowed fans with the first rollable TV set announced at last week’s show.

The TV will have incorporate Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built-in as well as support for the Apple AirPlay 2 wireless technology and HomeKit—the former allows users to stream videos, music, photos directly from their Apple devices, while the latter can control the TV using Apple’s Home app or its personal digital assistant, Siri.
LG’s high-end XBOOM delivers a robust 2,000W output, employing a proprietary Blast Horn – a folded air duct behind the driver designed to create acoustic sound pressure by directing air through an amplifying duct – ensuring high-frequency reproduction and bass performance; creating sound users can feel as well as hear.
