LG has built the world's first 65-inch rollable 4K display in a stunning feat of tech engineering. The South Korean major has already announced a slew of products, including an 88-inch 8K TV, which it will be showcasing at the CES 2018.
This is far from the first we've heard about a rollable OLED from LG Display. It rolled up to a radius of 3cm without affecting the function of the display.
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. The images and details that are available about the Roll UP TV suggest it is going to be as thin as paper and when opened, will provide a 65-inch OLED screen with 4K resolution (3,840x, 2160p). For those who don't want their TVs dominating the living room, LG touted this set as one you can roll up and hide when you want it out of sight, "allowing for better space utilization, something existing displays can't deliver".
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.
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. Now, that has been made bigger with the company showing off a 65-inch that matches a large TV but that is easily foldable. "With the innovation of rollable displays, LG Display will continue to lead the industry by creating new opportunities and markets".
