LG to Unveil Rollable Display TV in 2019

LG electronics has showcased a roll-able display TV prototype at the CES 2018

reports are that LG is making the prototype available as a real product for consumers starting next year.

“LG Electronics Inc. plans to begin selling big-screen TVs next year that can be rolled up and put away like a poster,”

The 65-inch TV can retract automatically with just a touch of a button. It will also feature organic light-emitting diode or OLED screen that can produce crisper images and fold more easily compared with traditional LCD panels.

Richard Lawler of Engadget reported last month of internal documents that indicate LG is planning to display full-on rollable TVs at CES 2019.

A prototype of this futuristic television is displayed at LG’s research center in Seoul. It can be rolled up and stuffed into a box when not in use.

LG hopes that the rollable” and OLED TV could revive its consumer electronics business, which has been struggling amid price declines and growing Chinese competition.
