The LG Signature OLED R is finally making its way to the U.S. with a new $100,000 price tag.
The company then officially released the Signature OLED R in South Korea with an $87,000 price tag in October 2020. It’s not clear why the U.S. version will cost an additional $13,000.
LG said the Signature OLED R will offer three operating modes: A Full View for watching videos, playing games, or using the built-in smart home features; a Line View for listening to audio content; and a Zero View “that displays the speaker as a work of art” when the display is stowed.
The company’s online store says the display will support Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG; boast a sub-1ms response time, 120Hz refresh rate, and AMD FreeSync Premium support; and offer one Ethernet, four HDMI 2.1, and three USB 2.0 ports as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi.
The Signature OLED R will also run webOS with built-in apps from LG’s content partners (Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+, among others) as well as support for Alexa and Google Assistant.
Those features probably won’t be enough for many people to justify spending $100,000, of course, but at least the LG Signature OLED R has more going for it than a rollable display.
LG’s online store lists the Signature OLED R as in stock and ready to ship at time of writing. The company said that all orders will include “white glove delivery and installation service to ensure a seamless set-up experience,” and that the LG Signature Concierge Service “will usher customers through the timeline from order placement to delivery for total peace of mind.”
