CES 2018: LG Display unveils 65-inch rollable TV

LG Display has unveiled what it describes as the world’s first 65-inch Ultra-High Definition (UHD) rollable OLED screen at CES in Las Vegas.

“It can be rolled up and hidden when not in use, and the small size of the rolled-up screen means that it can be more easily moved and stored, allowing for better space utilization, something existing displays can’t deliver,” the company explained, in a statement.

This is not the first time that LG Display has showcased a rollable screen at CES. In 2014 the tech giant showed off an 18-inch version of the technology that could be rolled up like a newspaper, according to Engadget.
