When not being used, the LG OLED panel rolls up into its base like some sort of high-tech carpet.
The company's most impressive reveal at the show is a record-breaking 88-inch OLED TV featuring glorious 8K resolution. What has changed however is the size. In the intervening two years, LG certainly seems to have made big strides. However, while we have had OLEDs for some time now, it took the ingenuity of a company of the likes of LG to actually make something as unique as a TV that can even be rolled up like a poster. These OLED screens might be made by the Display division of LG. True to their word, LG has just announced a 65-inch OLED that rolls up for storage when not in use.
LG has made a 65-inch rollable OLED display
LG Display will be unveiling a 65-inch "rollable" display with Ultra High Definition resolution at CES, the company announced. Since it's an 8K OLED display, we can expect high quality TV, deep black levels, and extremely bright colors.
Unfortunately, there is not any news if this model will ever be commercially available, let alone pricing, but flexible OLED displays appear to be just about ready for consumers.
Now, an expensive little robot not working when you want to get recipes or check on your laundry is one thing, but LG is looking to make a play in the services market with special robots optimized for hotels and groceries. Also, LG managed to further flawless its Crystal Sound OLED technology. LG first showed off the wallpaper model past year. These TVs will also be compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa so the capabilities of what can be done with either of these new TV lineups is fairly extensive.
LG Display has also expanded its Crystal Sound technology to LCD products such as notebooks and monitors. The company's latest advancements of its IPS technology will also be exhibited to emphasize its industry-leading LCD displays. That also means the rolled up portion of the new LG panel won't use any power while the strip at the top is in use.
The dawn of rollable OLED is nearly upon us, and it will bring with it some very impressive new form factors for phones, tablets, and, in this case, HDTVs.
