"LG showcases new rollable 65" OLED display

LG's Roll Up TV is a unique attempt as it uses the flexible nature of OLED panels to make them portable and not just improve the visual experience.

Of course it's not just a space-saving feature, LG envisages scenarios where the TV only partially raises to show an information display, giving you the day's weather report, breaking news headlines or even bringing up a voice assistant.

The 66-inch prototype boasts UHD 3840x2160 resolution and will allow consumers to roll it up when not viewing them, allowing for easy removable and easy installation, LG Display said.

That said, tech firms have sporadically showcased flexible and rollable displays at such tech conferences over the years. LG's new display, however, seems more advanced and bigger in scale.

"LG Display is all about innovative products that provide new value to customers", says Dr Sang-Beom Han, the CEO of LG's display division. But it's most likely to be a prototype as well. No this is a 65 inch beast of a display with these characteristics and full 4K ultra HD resolution, just like one of LG's excellent normal OLED televisions, except for the whole paper-like design part.

"The small size of the rolled-up screen means that it can be more easily moved and stored".

LG hopes that this sort of display will allow customers to enjoy bright, hi-res content "anytime, anywhere". "With the innovation of rollable displays, LG Display will continue to lead the industry by creating new opportunities and markets". LG has also upgraded in the audio category from the current standard 2.1 channel sound to 3.1 channel sound.
