Now for 2018, even the insane build of the W7 OLED has been completely outdone by an all-new OLED 65 inch 4K HDR TV prototype that can be essentially rolled right up like a sheet due to its ultra-thin and extremely flexible build. LG is taking another shot at it with the new Roll Up TV at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
"LG Display is all about innovative products that provide new value to customers", says Dr Sang-Beom Han, the CEO of LG's display division. Once rolled in, the display looks like a sound bar. LG will in any case reveal more details when they open their booth at CES 2018 later in the week.
Last year, the firm successfully developed a 77-inch transparent OLED display. LG's new display, however, seems more advanced and bigger in scale.
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. In fact, LG a few years ago showcased an 18-inch OLED display that could also be bent and rolled up like a paper. Its small size allows for better space utilization, meaning you can take the TV anytime, anywhere and enjoy bright, high-resolution content.
LG's 65-inch display is far larger, and makes the prospect of owning an actual rollable television in the near future much more likely. In the intervening two years, LG certainly seems to have made big strides. The company recently amazed everyone with an 88-inch smart TV that boasts of whopping 8K resolution.
LG created the screen using its famous OLED display technology, which allows for a wide range of colours and impressive contrast.
