LG Shows Off 65-Inch OLED TV That Rolls Up

Sony xbr-x900f At CES, Samsung, LG vie for top spot in premium TVs
Kayla Schwartz | 12 January, 2018, 23:37

Apart from telling that the panel has 33 million pixels in 88-inches display, LG is not sharing any information about the latest product. The resolution of the TV is higher than most of the still photography cameras. The rollable screen, which tucks away into a rectangular box similar to a soundbar when you want to declutter your living room, is just a prototype with no plans to hit the market anytime soon.

Users can also view the contents of their LG fridge via a smartphone app and a 2.0-megapixel, wide angle camera, so you can check how much milk is left while at the grocery store.

LG also touted the use of Alpha9, a new proprietary process for OLED TVs that, it says, is 50% more powerful (in terms of image and data processing) than the chip in the 2017 models.

LG has also manufactured TVs that will be at the forefront ofCES this year.

Despite just getting back into mobile OLED technology on phones, LG is a veteran of OLED TVs. That will also be extended to LG's products for the hospitality industry.

LG Electronics led overall OLED TV shipment volume in November, with a 31% month-on-month increase in shipments.

Suspected Russian jets kill at least 30 near Syrian capital
Meanwhile, Russian daily Kommersant reported at least seven Russian planes were also destroyed by rebel shelling on December 31. The ministry said two Russian service personnel were killed in a mortar attack on the base by rebels, according to TASS.

The TV can connect and control all of the other smart home devices as well. The TV can be uncurled and rolled up again 50,000 times over its lifecycle, according to LG. The SUPER UHD TVs with FALD allow denser backlighting zones throughout the display, unlike edge lighting, in which backlights are positioned on the edges of the TV panel.

CES this year, LG Display is showcasing an OLED display that can be rolled up so it's easier to move or be hidden from view when not being used.

I've yet to receive any official word on United Kingdom pricing and availability but I'll be sure to update this article when I hear more.

In addition to just being a remarkably thin and handsome OLED set with near-perfect blacks and eye-popping hues, you can use the rollable TV in three distinct modes.

LG still hasn't outlined the pricing or release dates for these sets, but it's safe to presume the W8 and E8 will cost a pretty penny while the SK9500 will be (relatively) affordable.
