CES: LG to showoff 65-inch rollable OLED display

CES: LG to showoff 65-inch rollable OLED display

We're not sure how much LG's new 88-inch 8K OLED display will cost, but we can expect it will be expensive for most consumers. LG has now introduced a new OLED screen that can be rolled up like a newspaper.

It can roll up and hidden in when not in use. The rollable screen, which tucks away into a rectangular box similar to a soundbar when you want to declutter your living room, is just a prototype with no plans to hit the market anytime soon.

This rollable OLED display will also be demonstrated at CES 2018.

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. Among the biggest announcements so far are huge and rollable TVs.

There have been some monitors showcased at CES in the past year which can be bent a little, but LG's is the first one that can actually be rolled like a tube.

And, users will have access to 'more intelligent content information, ' to search soundtracks or casts, and even let the TV turn itself off when a program ends, without setting a specific time.

Samsung has announced The Wall, a 146-inch modular TV. The resolution of the massive display is 7680 x 4320, which is 16 times more than 1080p resolution and four times that of 4K displays.

Sony has once again chosen to use an LG panel for the AF8's OLED display, which will be powered by Sony's X1 Extreme processor, the same one found in the A1 and Sony's flagship LCD screen, the ZD9.

LG is also working with Google and Amazon to integrate their AI assistants into its products, although Park said the company is open to working with others too.

LG's chief technology officer IP Park said adding ThinQ to all its devices would "completely change the way we use products". While LG this CES is also showcasing the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV, Samsung is showcasing its first curved monitor with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. And, this is a reason why LG is building a new production facility in Guangzhou, China to develop OLED panels.
