LG Launches the World’s First Rollable OLED TV in the UAE Priced at AED 329,999

Published

on

LG Electronics (LG) has commenced sales of the world’s first rollable TV, LG SIGNATURE OLED R in the UAE. Interested customers can now pre-order the highly coveted TV at the official site, where they can virtually experience the game-changing innovations behind LG SIGNATURE OLED R. Each LG SIGNATURE OLED R rollable TV is custom built to order, meticulously assembled and finished with top quality craftsmanship by the most experienced production professionals at LG’s factory in South Korea.

The epitome of exclusivity, LG SIGNATURE OLED R has been lauded as a triumph in engineering and user-centric design. The TV’s 65-inch flexible OLED display is created from one sheet of glass and features self-lit pixels and independent dimming control to deliver picture quality of astounding depth and vibrancy. LG’s latest technological innovation empowers users to deploy three distinct viewing modes – Full View, Line View and Zero View. Full View rolls the LG SIGNATURE OLED R out to its full 65-inch size, offering a captivating display of colors and sounds for a truly immersive experience. Powered by LG’s leading processor technology, the TV employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a deep learning algorithm to optimize picture and sound quality according to the environment and content being showcased.

The LG SIGNATURE OLED R also features voice-activated control in a number of languages, including English, Arabic, French, Spanish and Russian. With Natural Language Processing (NLP), the TV can understand complex questions. For example, users can ask for the name of an actor, the films they have starred in, the background music, and more. The TV will recognize these follow-up questions as part of the same context – avoiding the need for repetition. With Arabic AI functionality, the LG SIGNATURE OLED R can understand not only standard Arabic dialect, but also Emirati, Saudi Arabian, and Egyptian variations.

Line View allows the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R to be partially unrolled, allowing for management of specific tasks that do not require the full TV screen. In Line View, users can choose from features and modes including Clock, Frame, Mood, Music, and Home Dashboard to operate other home appliances remotely. Users can initiate Clock mode to check the time and weather at a glance or Frame mode to enjoy family photos shared from a smartphone, while Mood mode creates a more relaxing atmosphere.

Unlike other TVs, which take up visual space even when not in use, the rollable screen offers greater flexibility. When in Zero View, the OLED display disappears without a trace, creating perfect spatial and visual harmony in any interior setting. Even in Zero View, users can enjoy music and other audio content which emanate from the 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system. The premium look and feel of the LG SIGNATURE OLED R is also evident within the materials used to craft the TV, from the brushed aluminum casing to the quality wool speaker cover designed by textile experts at Kvadrat of Denmark.

LG SIGNATURE OLED R employs an OLED panel certified by Swiss-based Societe Generale de Surveillance (SGS) for producing less air pollutants, reducing the use of hazardous substances and being easier to recycle. The TV employs the world’s first Eyesafe-certified TV panels that meet the low blue light emission requirement of US-based Eyesafe and has also been rated favorably by TÜV Rheinland and Underwriters Laboratories.

The LG SIGNATURE OLED R comes in Signature Black color and is now available for pre-order in the UAE, retailing at 329,999 AED.

CMF by Nothing Phone 1 Review: A Budget-Friendly Contender with a Twist

Published

on

In a market saturated with high-priced flagships, the CMF Phone 1 by Nothing is a breath of fresh air. Priced at a staggeringly affordable AED 749 onwards, it aims to deliver a compelling user experience without breaking the bank.

Design
One of the CMF Phone 1’s most striking features is its design. Unlike its flashier sibling, the Nothing Phone (2a), it ditches the transparent back with LED strips for a more conventional approach.

However, “conventional” doesn’t equate to boring here. The phone comes in various vibrant, almost playful colours, reminiscent of the early days of mobile phones. This playful aesthetic extends to the unique selling point of the CMF Phone 1: swappable back covers.

The CMF Phone 1 allows users to easily unscrew the stock black back and replace it with other colours such as orange, blue, and light green. This injects a degree of personalisation often missing in today’s homogenised phone market. Build quality feels solid despite the plastic construction, and the phone boasts an IP52 rating for basic dust and water resistance. CMF by Nothing also offers a bunch of other accessories that sweeten the deal. There’s a card case that can take in three credit cards, a kickstand, and a lanyard.

Display and Performance
The CMF Phone 1 sports a large, 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. This translates to a vibrant viewing experience, with excellent contrast levels and sharp visuals for everyday use. Watching videos and scrolling through social media feels fluid and enjoyable.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7300 chipset. While it won’t win any performance benchmarks, it offers sufficient processing power for most daily tasks such as browsing, social media, and light gaming. Multitasking feels smooth, and the phone rarely stumbles during regular use.

Software
The CMF Phone 1 runs Nothing OS 2.6, a near-stock Android experience with a minimalist aesthetic. This translates to a bloatware-free interface that prioritises user experience. The software feels clean and responsive, with subtle animations and a focus on functionality.

Notably, the playful design elements found in the Nothing Phone (2a)’s software, such as the Glyph interface, are absent here. This might disappoint some users who enjoyed the unique character of the Nothing brand. However, the focus on a clean and efficient experience remains a positive aspect.

Camera
The camera system of the CMF Phone 1 is a bit of a mixed bag. The main attraction is a 50MP Sony sensor backed by a depth sensor for portrait shots. In well-lit conditions, the camera captures decent photos with good detail and colour reproduction. Even in low light, the performance is pretty good with the night mode turned on.

The 16MP front-facing camera is adequate for video calls and casual selfies but won’t impress photography enthusiasts. Overall, the camera system is functional but falls short of what some users might expect, even at this price point.

Battery Life and Connectivity
The CMF Phone 1 packs a sizeable 5000mAh battery, which translates to excellent battery life. You can easily get through a full day of moderate use on a single charge and we were able to stretch it to two days on some occasions. The phone supports 33W wired charging, which helps top the battery up quickly when needed.

However, wireless charging is noticeably absent. In terms of connectivity, the phone offers standard options such as dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Notably, it also boasts 5G capabilities, making it future-proof for next-generation networks.

The Verdict
The CMF Phone 1 by Nothing is a compelling option for budget-conscious users who prioritise a clean software experience, vibrant display, and long battery life. The swappable back covers and the accessories add a unique touch of personalisation, while the overall design is refreshingly colourful and playful.

Ultimately, the CMF Phone 1 succeeds in its core mission: delivering a good user experience at an unbeatable price point. If you’re looking for a powerful flagship killer, look elsewhere. But if you prioritise everyday usability, clean software, and a touch of design flair without breaking the bank, the CMF Phone 1 is a strong contender.

Price: AED 749 onwards
