LG Display unveils 65-inch UHD rollable LED panel

LG Display unveils 65-inch UHD rollable LED panel

LG Display (NYSE: LPL) showed a massive 88-inch panel and a rollable 65-inch screen, both built around OLED displays. The TV can be uncurled and rolled up again 50,000 times over its lifecycle, according to LG. The reason for this is the use of OLED or organic light emitting diode display. For instance, you should be able to summon Assistant on your TV and ask it to switch on LG's air purifier or adjust the temperature of the AC.

Finally, Tim Alessi, Vice President Marketing, talked about LG's new OLED and Super UHD TVs for 2018.

It is reported to be one of the world's first true "rollable" TVs.

With AI taking center stage, voice commands play a big role in these new TVs.

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. The TV looks like something out of a futuristic movie but LG has shown that this technology is near.

LG will integrate its A.I. platform across its full product lines, including smart TVs, refrigerators, washers, dryers, ovens and other home appliances, as well as systems for connected cars. It revealed its 88-inch 8K TV, alongside the new ThinQ software, a week before CES kicked off. The display panel is designed exceedingly thinner than any ordinary display, allowing it to easily be rolled away into a box the size of a soundbar.

But there's more than just a 65-inch display on display. Hisense, TCL, Samsung and Sony will make an an appearance at the event later today. Samsung did not reveal the price or when it will be available exactly but it did confirm that it will ship this year.

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.

The rollable display is certainly an improvement over an earlier prototype LG showed two years ago that was only 18 inches in size and had a 1,200-by-810 resolution.
