LG Electronics to unveil a rollable OLED TV at CES 2019 - rumor

02 Nov 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

The rollable OLED prototype that LG Display showcased earlier this year will transform into an actual OLED TV at CES 2019 in January, according to a report by Engadget.

LG rollable OLED TV

We have already seen how OLED technology can enable new types of TVs such as super-thin “wallpaper” displays. The next step will apparently be OLED TVs that can roll up when not in use.

You may recall that LG Display – the display panel manufacturer – showcased a rollable OLED prototype behind closed doors at CES 2018 earlier this year. It was a little rough with its large white enclosure box but nevertheless very impressive.




Engadget is now reporting that it “has seen internal documents highlighting intended topics for the presentation” at CES 2019 by LG Electronics – the manufacturer of consumer products. These slides include a rollable OLED TV, “perhaps with an eye for launching it next year as a real product”, the report said.

Why would you want a TV to roll up after use? Well, some consumers may like the fact that the TV is out of sight when not in use and may therefore accept a much larger TV in their living room.

The slides also include plans for a foldable phone, which is presumably also enabled by OLED technology.

This is just a rumor but it certainly sounds plausible. We will find out soon. FlatpanelsHD will be attending CES 2019 in January so stay tuned.
