LG Introduces The World's First 88-Inch 8K OLED Display

Elsewhere at the show, LG has also been showing off a 65-inch rollable OLED TV, which can be rolled up like a enormous newspaper, a massive 88-inch 8K OLED screen and a 4K UHD projector.

The firm's new 4K TV can be rolled in a tube form and carried around in a box, making it highly portable. And you won't have to deal with any of the issues that come with an LED/LCD TV: Like, problems with blurriness when watching football, especially the grass.

Surging sales of large-screen TV sets play an important part in this growth story, as Universal Display collects revenue on the total area of OLED products based on the company's research and patents. It will be on show at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show from today.

If you've dreamed of rolling up your television and stuffing it into your backpack, LG is moving rollable OLED displays even closer to your dreams. 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).

The rollable television is only a prototype version of the concept that LG has been developing the last few years. Under the hood, the high-end TVs are powered by LG's fastest Alpha 9 that LG says can more accurate color and "enhanced image rendering". It was an 18-inch "rollable" TV sporting 1200x810 resolution. The bottom part that accommodates the display when rolled down is also least impressive but can still serve an important objective, that of housing the speakers or other related stuff. The company is now teasing a 65-inch 4k OLED display that can roll up into a tube.

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

"The growing number of available OLED TV choices, especially high-profile Japanese and European brands, has resulted in more competition and pricing promotion activity in the OLED TV market". LG is one of the world's leading makers of OLED TVs, and it's got a TV on display at CES 2018 that's more than just flexible - it's rollable.

It was a brilliant use of the Crystal Sound OLED technology, as laptop speakers often leave something to be desired in terms of sound quality.
