“LG showcased a 65-inch OLED panel which could be rolled up and hidden when not in use”
CES is known to push the envelope by offering ground-breaking technology and the same is evident from this year’s coverage of the show. We recently reportednewsabout Samsung’s146-inch television and now, South Korean-giant LG has announceda rollable OLED television.
At its press event, LG showcased a 65-inch OLED panel which could be rolled up and hidden when not in use. While the company hasn’t shared any details about the display’s rolling mechanism or its core-specs, a rollable TV has quite a lot of practical applications. For starters, carrying and transporting the unit will be a lot easier andit will also add a more minimalistic look to a user’s room when not in use. LG has toyed with flexible displays in the past, with the G Flex 2 being the prime example, however, a rollable TV is the first for the company.
Alongside the rollable OLED display, LG also announced an 88-inch 8K OLED panel which hopes to compete with Samsung’s 85-inch QLED 8K TV. As of now, LG’srollable OLED TV andthe 88-inch OLED 8K panelare still in a prototype stage, so don’t expect to see them on commercial devices anytime soon.
