LG Electronics is all set to unveil a foldable display that rolls just like any piece of paper at the upcoming CES 2016. The Korean giant has built a prototype of an 18-inch flexible screen, inspired by LG’s bendable and curved OLED displays.
In addition, the company is also planning to unveil a paper thin 55-inch TV. The company says that it has managed to achieve the paper-thin display owing by separately installing its electrical circuits. While LG is also set to unwrap a 55-inch dual-sided display, which can show different images on either side.
“The company will also showcase futuristic concept displays that highlight the dynamic forms that OLED can achieve, including the world’s first 30R 18-inch rollable display that can be rolled up like a newspaper; 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,” said LG.
Though what we’re really looking forward to is a 98-inch LED TV with 8K display, apparently the first ever in the world. This Ultra UHD TV goes by the model number UH9800 and will be available for purchase in the second half of 2016.
“At CES, LG will also take the wraps off its first production-ready 98-inch 8K SUPER UHD TV (model UH9800),” LG officially announced on Saturday.
The Korean manufacturer will showcase these futuristic displays under the tagline – “Your Imagination, Our Innovation.” Don’t forget to get a glimpse of these cutting edge displays at CES 2016 from January 6 to January 9 to be held in Las Vegas.
LG has certainly upped the ante when it comes to OLED technology. A recent report claims the Korean giant has invested nearly $8.7 billion into OLED research and development. The company is planning to set up an OLED manufacturing facility in Paju, South Korea. Dubbed as the P10, it’ll be a massive plant covering an area of around 14 football fields while measuring 100 meters in height. Production is expected to begin in the first half of 2018.
