LG Display's giant rollable OLED TV is indistinguishable from magic

At CES, Samsung, LG vie for top spot in premium TVs

CES 2018: LG TVs Get Smarter With AI

Just when TVs are getting bigger and slimmer, LG has come up with a refreshing 65-inch Ultra HD OLED television design with a "rollable" screen - a first-of-its-kind in the industry.

LG Display is showcasing cutting-edge display products including the world's first 65-inch UHD rollable OLED display that prove its global leadership in all areas of displays at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. According to the United States research firm IHS Markit, sales of TVs with 75-inch panels or larger are predicted to rise to 1.6 million units this year from 1.1 million units last year. For more updates, stay tuned with us! And LG's OLED and UHD TVs are leading the charge.

In other words, during the CES 2018 we might see new products also from Samsung and other rivals.

In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display stated that the successful development of this screen is critical in the 8K scenery. Imagine using a big 10-inch phone to read news or messages, and once done, rolling it into a compact form and keeping it in your pocket.

The headline feature on LG's 2018 TV lineup however is Artificial Intelligence (AI).

It was a brilliant use of the Crystal Sound OLED technology, as laptop speakers often leave something to be desired in terms of sound quality.

And while image processing seems to have received a major overhaul this time around, an LG representative told us the panels are more or less the same as the ones used previous year. The bottom part that accommodates the display when rolled down is also least impressive but can still serve an important goal, that of housing the speakers or other related stuff. LG has added support for Advanced HDR by Technicolor to its support for Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), and HDR10.

This growth comes as falling prices placed 55-inch 4K OLED into the budget range of a greater number of high-end holiday shoppers, according to IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions.

The wider implications of this technology are for the mobile space, however, especially since word got out about Samsung aiming to release a tablet device based on this type of display tech during 2018/19.
