LG unveils world's first rollable TV ahead of CES 2018


LG has been leading the way in large-sized and mid-sized OLED displays for TV, auto-components and lighting.

As the tech world heads to Vegas for CES, LG Display today teased another gadget it will show off on the show floor: a 65-inch OLED TV you can roll up and store elsewhere when not in use.

This huge 4K TV is a 65-inch OLED panel, which is nearly as thin as a sheet of paper and can be rollable. That was much more of a tech demo than what this looks to be, just showing off the idea of a display that can be rolled up instead of how it might actually be used in practice.

Last year, the firm successfully developed a 77-inch transparent OLED display. LG's new display, however, seems more advanced and bigger in scale.

LG's OLED 4K TVs have been getting more powerful and innovative by the year since they first came out and the models of 2017 really impressed with both their specs and in the case of the flagship W7 hanging TV, which we reviewed here with their absolutely unique design.

If you're in the unlikely Venn diagram of people who want a giant television screen but don't want to see it much, then you're in luck. Its small size allows for better space utilization, meaning you can take the TV anytime, anywhere and “enjoy bright, high-resolution content”. In the intervening two years, LG certainly seems to have made big strides. LG has also upgraded in the audio category from the current standard 2.1 channel sound to 3.1 channel sound.

Compatriot Samsung is set to show off new 8K resolution QLED TVs, as well as a 150-inch Micro LED TV at the trade show.
