LG reveals new 'Art' OLED TV with moving cover

08 Dec 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG has revealed a new 65-inch 'Art' OLED TV with a moving cover that can hide the TV when it is not in use. The TV will go on sale in South Korea first later this month.

A premium OLED TV

The 65-inch LG 65ART90, or 'OLED Evo Objet Collection', was unveiled today in South Korea. It is part of LG's efforts to cater to a different group of buyers and likely a response to Samsung's successful range of 'lifestyle TVs' like The Frame. - "We will actively target premium customers who want only the best by introducing new products with both the best picture quality and innovative design," said Kim Seon-hyeong, head of HE marketing at LG Electronics Korea. The TV has a metal frame that can stand directly on the floor and lean against the wall, or hang flat on a wall. There is a built-in 4.2-channel 80W audio system and a fabric cover, which comes in beige, redwood or green with fabric from Kvadrat.

What is unique about LG's ART90 is that the cover can move up and down with the touch of a button to hide the display when it is not in use. Just like LG's rollable OLED TV, the ART90 model has a 'Line View' that lets you see only part of the screen while listening to music or something else. - "Customers can adjust the moving cover up and down through the dedicated remote control. By adjusting the cover position according to the situation or taste, you can create a line view that only sees a part of the screen, and a full view that sees the entire screen. In line view, even when not watching TV, it can be used as a watch or music mode, and in full view, you can enjoy the theme exclusive to LG OLED EVO objet collection," the company explained.
From a technical standpoint it appears to be a modified version of LG's 4K 'OLED Evo' G series, which is currently available as G1. We expect LG to introduce a new G2 model at CES 2022 in January but it is most like a separate product from the ART90. LG has explored the concept of combining OLED with moving parts for years. In 2018, a patent application surfaced revealing that LG had been toying with the idea of using moving speakers to switch aspect ratio on an OLED TV between 21:9, 16:9 and 4:3, depending on the content. LG has also explored other premium TV concepts such as the 'wallpaper OLED', which was discontinued earlier this year. The 65-inch LG 65ART90 will go on sale in South Korea later this month for 9.9 million Won which is approximately $8500 dollars. The company did not comment on launch plans for international markets.
