CES 2016: LG Unveils 18-Inch Rollable OLED Display
  • LG created world's first 18 Inch OLED display panel that could be rolled up like a scroll

LG has managed to create an 18-inch rollable display that can be rolled-up like a newspaper. LG will showcase it at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show.

LG after some intense tinkering has manufactured an 18-inch screen television that could be rolled up like a diploma or newspaper. World’s first 30R 18-inch rollable display will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 in Las Vegas from January 6 to January 9.

It is all thanks to OLED technology that allows the materials of media to bend, roll and be flexible as hell. The technology was kept under wraps until last year, but now it is out in the open and all could see this wonderful example of the impossible being possible. 

LG will prove to the world that it can touch tomorrow with a single press of a button. Although Sony, Samsung and Sharp have come up with similar concepts, LG leads the way because as its initials say “Life’s Good”.

Such innovative and unbelievable concepts are the differentiating point between smart phones, tablets and full-fledged televisions. The future is now since these sorts of ultra-flexible screens can be fit snugly into the pockets of consumers or be wrapped around interior surfaces.  

Sometime in the future, LG will feature a 25 inch curved screen that will be fitted inside a vehicle. Within a few days or so, we will get a closer look at the flexible screen designed by LG.

The announcement of having invented an 18-inch rollable OLED was made by LG a year ago. But LG will display a prototype of this 18-inch rollable display this year at CES.

The super-thin wonder-world will be out in the open at CES. Maybe in the future, a hologram will replace this baby too. One never knows the limits of one’s knowledge and the application of that technology until one tests those limits and LG is ready to break through the barrier.

LG Display will exhibit its cutting-edge technologies at CES 2016 at its private showroom in the Las Vegas Convention Center under the slogan, ‘Your Imagination, Our Innovation’.

This CES 2016 showroom will be "divided into sections devoted to OLED and LCD display products, while separate zones will focus on the rapidly growing commercial and automotive display markets that offer new opportunities for the delivery of the company’s differentiated technology excellence," according to LG.  

As a futuristic device, the 18-inch rollable display sure comes close to the sort of paper thin smart cards that have come up recently. The revolution in streamlining can be taken to the point of virtual invisibility.

In fact, here the difference between technology and magic seems to fade out. Besides curved screens, rollable screens are going to be the really popular devices soon.

They will pull in and attract consumers like never before. LG has always taken giant steps. And it has a bold vision that sees technology as being presented to the consumers with a human face rather than an inhuman one. 

LG will also exhibit 65-inch and 77-inch UHD OLED TV panels at CES 2016. The company will also showcase other futuristic concept displays at the International Consumer Eletronics Show 2016 including a 55-inch design concept OLED TV display that is paper-thin since the electric circuits are installed separately; and a matching pair of 65-inch extreme-curve concave/convex OLED displays.

Dr. Sang-Beom Han, Vice Chairman & CEO of LG Display said, “LG Display has been sharing successful solutions with its customers by meeting the market’s requirements and demands with its differentiated technology. We will continue to offer differentiated values to the market and customers and strengthen the company’s leadership by responding quickly to trends in the expanding OLED market, including the fast-growing automotive and signage sectors, by offering various solutions.”
