CES 2018: LG's new Roll Up concept can make TVs portable

CES 2018: LG's new Roll Up concept can make TVs portable

Smaller-scale versions of flexible displays have been used by LG before - like in the LG G Flex 2, for example - but seeing it used in a proper TV-like package is new territory.

The incredible new flexible screen will be showcased alongside a staggering 88-inch 8K OLED display at the tech show this year.

With AI functionality embedded in 2018 LG TVs, LG's customers can speak directly into the remote control to use all the features of today's advanced voice-assistant technology. LCDs, for instance, use colour filters and liquid crystals that block light to create an image.

This means that OLEDs can be thinner and more flexible than any other television technology now on the market.

This is far from the first we've heard about a rollable OLED from LG Display.

This makes for easier storage, while still achieving high resolution. Pieced together, they give you a cinematic feel with waterfalls, forests or just colorful visual displays. LG has just unveiled a 65in 4K television set that rolls up like a poster when it's not in use. Keeping in view the last years 77-inch 4K OLED TV, this display will also not be for those who are budget conscious.

Welcoming visitors to LG's sprawling CES booth adjacent to the main entrance of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the LG OLED Canyon features 90 concave and 156 convex Open Frame screens.

LG has been leading the way in large-sized and mid-sized OLED displays for TV, auto-components and lighting.

Despite just getting back into mobile OLED technology on phones, LG is a veteran of OLED TVs. This startlingly slim TV drops all the normal gubbins you expect from a TV, leaving you with the OLED panel that you affix to the wall, with an accompanying Dolby Atmos soundbar that also contains all the connections and brains to drive the TV.

The TV can connect and control all of the other smart home devices as well.

Needless to say, LG hasn't revealed the pricing or release dates of any of its 2018 TVs.

There's also a new AI OLED B8 (55 and 65-inch).
