LG's Rollable Display May Be the Future of TVs

LG's Rollable Display May Be the Future of TVs

Now The South Korean giant is planning to introduce the world's largest 88-inch 8K OLED display, according to Engadget. For now the company is sticking with curved AMOLED screens on smartphones and QLED panels in TVs.

The concept is very impressive-looking though and we might even see a working unit at CES 2018 later in this quarter.

Shares of Universal Display (NASDAQ: OLED) surged higher on Monday, rising as much as 10% in the early afternoon. We can also expect a 55-inch transparent display and a 77-inch wallpaper OLED TV display. Though still running on WebOS, having Google Assistant and Alexa integration makes these TVs more versatile than ever, and keeps LG competitive in the TV market where numerous top brands are announcing similar products which either integrate Google Assistant, Alexa, or both.

Over the weekend, several large consumer technology companies used the CES platform to launch brand-new OLED products. The roll-up screen makes the TV particularly discreet - hidden away among the furniture when not in use, or only rolled out onto a wall when switched on. LG has also upgraded in the audio category from the current standard 2.1 channel sound to 3.1 channel sound.

LG focused a portion of its presser on a new line of OLED TVs with ThinQ on board. Further, both the series comes with hands-free control with Amazon-Alexa-enabled devices and Google Home.

Joe Arpaio will run for Arizona Senate 'to support Trump'
Disgraced ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio was officially pardoned by President Donald Trump past year - and now he's running for the Senate. Arpaio is also known for retaliating against political adversaries and using various freakish schemes for the sake of publicity.

This means the display can be customised to a size specification that suits the user. Since OLED don't require backlighting, they are super slim as well.

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.

Artificial intelligence helps the fridge "understand your needs" - in other words, it will create more ice at dinner time, once it has learnt that's what you like. LG also showed off a monstrous 8K screen boasting four times the resolution of Ultra HD and an 88-inch screen size - but no price or release date just yet.

Sadly, there is no any information regarding the pricing and availability of this new Rollable OLED display or Television available at this moment with us.
