LG Display was showed off the world’s first 65-inch UHD roll-able OLED TV at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week. The company says a new prototype display that measures 65-inches can be rolled up like a sheet of paper when not in use.
Since OLED displays are lightweight, LG believes its 65-inch flexible display TV can be easily moved and stored, allowing for “better space utilisation”, something existing displays can’t deliver. LG Display isn’t ready to share technical details about the prototype OLED TV just yet, but the company did mention that it boasts 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution.
The company has been working on an idea of a foldable display TV for quite a while. At CES 2016, LG had showcased an 18-inch foldable display prototype that rolls up like a newspaper.
“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.
