LG Introduces The World's First 88-Inch 8K OLED Display

It unveiled an impressive 65-inch prototype OLED TV that can be rolled up, just like paper. This is not all, however, as it plans to add another interesting product to the mix.

The concept is the same as that revealed by LG a few years back, except for that back then, the rollable feature was demoed on an 18-inch OLED screen.

That being said, this rollable LG OLED TV feature will certainly pave the way for adoption of similar technology in other consumer electronics segments - particularly smartphones.

Looking at it up close, I could detect no difference between this rollable panel and LG Display's other, profoundly gorgeous OLED TVs.

The device looks promising and appears to bring forth a bunch of advancements to the traditional flat-screen TV.

LG spent much of their lackluster CES keynote highlighting the potential of its new AI platform, ThinQ, to revolutionize the lives of consumers and their company's bottom line. The prototype from LG Display, however, will surely help in driving down the prices of 4K TVs that are now available in the market.

The firm's new 4K TV can be rolled in a tube form and carried around in a box, making it highly portable. It takes less storage space and is easy to transport. It packs LG's fastest chip, the Alpha 9, which drives AI, picture quality and "ultra-fast" response times.

What can we expect from LG in 2018 though? The former has been demonstrated with recipes provided by smart fridges, while the latter is used to control LG's ThinQ televisions.

LG touts the portability and storage options made available by its new rollable television.

Agility is clearly a running theme among the TV giants this year - Samsung's own wow-factor CES TV reveal was The Wall, a huge 146-inch display that is modular. The TVs also support 120FPS high frame rate video.

LG Display showed off an updated version of its "crystal sound" 65-inch prototype, which plays sound directly from the parts of the screen where the events are happening.
