Not sure how long it's been up, but LG has populated their website with info on the 65R9PUA which is 'coming soon': https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED65R...ure-oled-4k-tv

It's been up for most of this year, but I keep waiting for pricing and availability information. I will buy one eventually, but not until the prices become a reasonable premium over a normal form factor OLED.

I plan to use it in my living room so we can actually see the windows behind the TV when it is not in use and I need to replace my 2005 30" Sony CRT someday anyway!

Nothing new from LG since the January unveiling. Yeah, it has hit the website maybe a month ago, but nothing new in that listing and nothing after that. I'm beginning to think it is vaporware? Or, at the minimum, gonna-come-out-priced-way-too-high-and-super-limited-availability-ware (haloware?)

This first year? Absolutely. And they will probably be scheduled to hit the channels by September in time for the Holiday Shopping Season.

The key question will be, can you see a 65R being shown off in high-end chains like Magnolia Center or will the 65R-Series be so limited this first year that they need to be ordered directly from LG...

I'm guessing that LG is aiming to sell as many 65Rs this year as they are aiming to sell 88Zs (low thousands of each, worldwide) and I wouldn't be surprsed if a 65R shows up on display wherever you see an 88Z..l

I have the same issue. Was considering a 65” or 75” Samsung QLED (probably better than OLED in a bright room) paired with a low profile TV lift like this from American TV Lift — https://www.americantvlift.com/Moder...w130916-01.htm but I can’t find any online reviews for them (even though they have a pretty extensive website).

Does anyone have an expectation on price for this tv? or a ballpark?

Went from haloware to vaporware!

Well, guess I'm safe to buy a new "traditional" tv now since this thing won't come, and if it does won't come for at least another year or two.

It's not vaporware: https://www.techradar.com/news/lgs-r...t-for-us-or-uk

'An LG representative on the IFA 2019 show floor told us that its initial release would likely be Korea, either in 2019 or 2020, but that no Western releases to the US, UK, or otherwise currently have a firm date planned.

That could mean UK and US viewers only have to hold out another year, but it could also mean they’re left waiting until 2021 or beyond.'

'We're assured by Kenneth Hong, Senior Director at LG Electronics, however, that the Signature Series R is getting a global release – just not immediately.

"We are still focusing on end of the year release for some market," he says. "It's going to be somewhere."

If the 65R9 shows up anywhere n 2019, it's an almost-certain bet to launch most everywhere including the US before the end of 2020...
