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.

Two killed in Iran protests: deputy governor
At least two Iranian protesters were shot dead on December 30, 2017 in the city of Doroud, in western Lorestan Province. So far, security forces appear to have shown some restraint, in an apparent attempt to avoid escalating tensions.

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.
