We come to CES to see the most outlandish and extravagant developments in tech, and few live up to such a description as well as LG Display's new rollable OLED TV. The reason for this is the use of OLED or organic light emitting diode display. There aren't much details about this TV but the fact that it can roll up already makes it one of the most interesting devices. It will be displaying the screen at CES 2018 meeting, which is planned to occur from January 9, 2018, to January12, 2018, in the U.S.at Las Vegas.

Over the weekend, several large consumer technology companies used the CES platform to launch brand-new OLED products. However, maybe you don't want to have an 65-inch OLED dominating a room of your house. Using LG's CLOi's home robot, VanderWaal showed off how one would be able to control various appliances in their home (although CLOi stopped taking commands after the first one during the live demo).

And, users will have access to 'more intelligent content information, ' to search soundtracks or casts, and even let the TV turn itself off when a program ends, without setting a specific time. It revealed its 88-inch 8K TV, alongside the new ThinQ software, a week before CES kicked off.

Panasonic also unveiled two new Ultra HD Blu-ray players, including the DP-UB820 and the UP-UB420. Also, LG managed to further ideal its Crystal Sound OLED technology.

There's a new Signature Wallpaper model, the W8 leading the charge, in 77 and 65-inch sizes.

The new Rollable OLED display from LG can be rolled on just like a newspaper. Samsung is yet to make a mark in the particular segment. And, this is a reason why LG is building a new production facility in Guangzhou, China to develop OLED panels.

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.

Back at CES 2016, LG showed off a rollable OLED display for the first time, but it was a mere 18-inches, not the impressive 65-inch consumer-ready television it now has at CES 2018.
