In 2014 LG unveiled the world’s first flexible OLED TV at CES. Its users were able to control the angle of curvature of the display with the remote control. But the price of such TVs turned out to be “unbearable” for a mass buyer, so LG engineers decided to develop something more affordable. As a result, a TV appeared, which in the “marching” position can be literally rolled into a tube.
This is not the first flexible OLED display. In 2010, Sony has already introduced its 18-inch prototype, but since then, LG has certainly outperformed its Japanese rival by presenting two similar, but more advanced, products to CES last year. This year, visitors to the exhibition in Las Vegas will be able to see 88-inch OLED-display with a resolution of 8K and a flexible 65-inch 4K-display, which can be rolled up during the move.
The screen can also be partially rewound – for example, to display a calendar, weather information or as a music player. However, while the serial production of these wonders of electronics speech is not. But already this year under the brand LG Electronics, a series of improved UHD LCD TVs with diagonals from 55 to 75 inches will be on sale. They will receive support for 4K Cinema HDR, ThinQ AI, webOS, Google Assistant and Alexa. It is expected that the price for them will be announced within the next few months.
