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

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.

What's most likely is that LG would flog these panels to businesses looking to impress with a fancy display.

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

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

The new panel comes just a few years after LG showed off an early prototype that measured just 18 inches.

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.

"The small size of the rolled-up screen means that it can be more easily moved and stored". With this portable and flexible feature, the 65-inch rollable display can offer users the high-resolution content anytime, anywhere. LG has also upgraded in the audio category from the current standard 2.1 channel sound to 3.1 channel sound. LG's secret seems to be the paper-thin OLED (organic light emitting diode) display which is found in top-end smartphones and TVs.

It seems unlikely that LG will be selling this sort of display to the general public any time soon, and it would nearly certainly cost a hefty sum. "With the innovation of rollable displays, LG Display will continue to lead the industry by creating new opportunities and markets". The company recently amazed everyone with an 88-inch smart TV that boasts of whopping 8K resolution.
