LG announced at CES 2018 its 65-inch rollable display that LG is confident will ll be a real product one day. The world's first rollable 65-inch 4K OLED display offers a more realistic use for OLED tech that's flexible - something that we'll probably see in a few - probably premium - TV models in the next few years.
Currently, it is just a prototype, which sits inside a box that sucks it in like a scroll. A spindle inside the box gradually unfurls the OLED screen, which has a 4K resolution. With a press from a remote, the display rises up, perfectly straight. When you are not watching it, you can roll it up and put it inside where it is out of sight.
The whole unrolling process takes about 12 seconds, and is silent. The TV can be uncurled and rolled up again 50,000 times over its lifecycle, according to LG.
There's no price or availability to speak of here, because this is still only a prototype looking for a TV brand to pick it up and try to sell it as a retail product.
