Highlights

  • LG's 65-inch rollable OLED display has 4K resolution
  • It can be rolled up and hidden in when not in use
  • Crystal Sound OLED also in development to emanate sound from OLED panels

A couple of years after the emergence of its concept, LG Display has finally showcased the much-anticipated 65-inch 4K UHD rollable OLED display at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The new prototype is much larger in size than the original 18-inch OLED display but has the same foldable design that rolled up to offer easy movability and storage. The South Korean company also unveiled its 88-inch 8K OLED display with 3.1 channel sound that would be the world's first 88-inch panel to sport 8K resolution, taking on Samsung's latest 85-inch 8K QLED TV.

The 65-inch rollable UHD OLED display is built in a way that it can be rolled up and hidden when not in use. This helps to deliver better space utilisation alongside enabling a large TV-viewing experience. Also, the panel is designed to offer a 4K resolution.lg 65 inch uhd rollable oled display image LG rollable OLED display  LG

It is worth noting here that LG originally showcased an early prototype of its rollable OLED display at CES 2016. The original development was in 18-inch size though had similar foldable form-factor as of the new 65-inch panel to bring portability to new levels. Moreover, the company initially had plans to bring its foldable and rollable P-OLED screens by 2017.

Alongside the rollable OLED display, LG at the CES showcased its 88-inch 8K OLED display and a Crystal Sound OLED integration. This new technology is claimed to enable the panel to emanate sound directly from the panel. Likewise, there are developments such as 55-inch transparent display and a 77-inch wallpaper OLED TV display that would be exhibited soon. LG Display, the display division of LG, also claims to be improving the existing IPS technology by implementing IPS nano-colour and U-IPS. The former is touted to express rich colours on an IPS panel using nanoscale high-colour reproduction particles, while the latter increases the transmittance and reduces the intensity of light reflected on the panel to produce more vivid results. LG demonstrated a variety of products to showcase the new developments, including a 65-inch Art Glass display for TVs and 14-inch and 31.5-inch displays for monitors.

"We will firmly establish our position as a leading company by responding to market expectations and providing differentiated value in the rapidly expanding OLED market as well as the existing LCD market," said Dr. Sang-Beom Han, Vice Chairman and CEO of LG Display, in a press statement.

Other major TVs showcased at CES 2018 thus far include Samsung's 146-inch 4K TV, which it calls "The Wall". The South Korean firm also showcased its artificial intelligence (AI) powered 8K TV - Q9S - that would face heat from LG's massive 8K panel.
