The display is housed inside a block, where all the components live, and but the actual display is just one big, rollable, electronic piece of paper - like a poster.
CES 2018 has just started but companies have wasted no time in announcing their latest technology. As such, the 65-inch OLED panel renders life-like images that is as captivating as the TV as a whole is. However, we can expect from the company to come up with more official information about this all new Rollable and Flexible OLED displays. This also happens to be a world's first as well, one that seems better tuned for a market launch anytime soon than the plethora of such foldable displays we have seen in tech events over the years. Aesthetically, the TVs don't differ from the 2017 range, but internally they've received a healthy bump in specifications. At CES 2016 it showcased a similar rollable TV with a smaller 18-inch screen. Though that's the case, the South-Korean firm is diligently working hard to safeguard its supremacy in TV display segment in this new commercial year as well.
As homes become smarter, the devices within them need to become more agile - and arguably no gadget at CES this year does that better than LG's new concept 4K rollable screen.
"The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", said In-Byung Kang, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at LG Display.
LG Ups Its LCD Game With Nano Cell, FALD Backlighting TechCombining Nano Cell, FALD backlighting, and the Alpha 7 processor, LG's 2018 SK9500 and SK9000 SUPER UHD LCD TVs will offer deeper blacks, enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details, and accurate color from wide viewing angles. Those TVs will also support up to 120 frames per second, 4K and multiple HDR standards.
"The growing number of available OLED TV choices, especially high-profile Japanese and European brands, has resulted in more competition and pricing promotion activity in the OLED TV market". 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.
