LG to unveil its rollabale 65-inch 4K OLED TV

CES 2018: LG's new Roll Up concept can make TVs portable

It was only a few years ago that LG Display wowed us with an 18-inch OLED screen that could bend and be rolled up like paper. LG will be providing more details on the Roll Up TV at the CES 2018 press briefing later on Monday.

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

That said, tech firms have sporadically showcased flexible and rollable displays at such tech conferences over the years.

Those with long memories will recall that LG actually showed off a rollable TV screen at CES 2016, but there was one key difference: at 18in, it was smaller than most computer monitors, and wasn't ready for prime position in the living room. But it's most likely to be a prototype as well.


The goal of this huge rollable UHD TV screen is yet to be known, the company claims that "It can be rolled up and hidden when not in use, and the small size of the rolled-up screen means that it can be more easily moved and stored, allowing for better space utilisation, something existing displays can't deliver".

The company will also show off a 55-inch transparent display and a 77-inch wallpaper concept TV that will show the "advantages of OLED", the company said. LG's new display, however, seems more advanced and bigger in scale. In the intervening two years, LG certainly seems to have made big strides.

LG will also be showing off an 88-inch 8K resolution OLED display at CES.

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.
