"LG showcases new rollable 65" OLED display

Now, that has been made bigger with the company showing off a 65-inch that matches a large TV but that is easily foldable.

The South Korean tech giant showcased the panel - which rolls up like a newspaper - at January's annual CES 2018 show in Las Vegas. It rolled up to a radius of 3cm without affecting the function of the display. LG will in any case reveal more details when they open their booth at CES 2018 later in the week.

This isn't the first time LG has shown off this tech, we saw an little 18-inch prototype a few years ago, but this is in a whole other league.

Last year, the firm successfully developed a 77-inch transparent 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. LG's new display, however, seems more advanced and bigger in scale. But we'll likely hear more when CES kicks off this week.

LG says this 65-inch UHD rollable OLED display "highlights the distinctive technological edges and unlimited potential of OLEDs". Its small size allows for better space utilization, meaning you can take the TV anytime, anywhere and “enjoy bright, high-resolution content”.

Compatriot Samsung is set to show off new 8K resolution QLED TVs, as well as a 150-inch Micro LED TV at the trade show. LG's secret seems to be the paper-thin OLED (organic light emitting diode) display which is found in top-end smartphones and TVs.

LG created the screen using its famous OLED display technology, which allows for a wide range of colours and impressive contrast.
