LG shows off 88-inch 8K OLED TV

At CES, Samsung, LG vie for top spot in premium TVs

The "rollable" display is an especially interesting device, since it means that bulky TVs will be a thing of the past.

The leader in big-screen OLED manufacturing, not satisfied to debut the first 88-inch 8K OLED TV, will show off another world's first at CES: a 65-inch 4K OLED display that's, get this, rollable. During the weeks surrounding Black Friday 2017, LGE dropped the price of its entry-level B7 series 55-inch and 65-inch 4K OLED TVs by $200, pricing its lowest tier 55B7 model at $1,499.

LG has developed a 65-inch OLED screen that can be rolled up like a newspaper. LG's 2018 OLED and select SUPER UHD TVs process HDR images dynamically frame-by-frame using LG's proprietary algorithm, Enhanced Dynamic Tone mapping.

Agility is clearly a running theme among the TV giants this year - Samsung's own wow-factor CES TV reveal was The Wall, a huge 146-inch display that is modular. Due to a more economical production process, the QLED TV can be way more cheaper than current OLED screen. According to the United States research firm IHS Markit, sales of TVs with 75-inch panels or larger are predicted to rise to 1.6 million units this year from 1.1 million units last year. The contrast is also ideal because black pixels in an OLED matrix are simply off. In a demo of the E8 OLED, we were able to see just how well the new Alpha 9 processor stood up against another leading OLED panel. "With the innovation of rollable displays, LG Display will continue to lead the industry by creating new opportunities and markets".

It's hard to walk away unimpressed after spending time with the LG Signature OLED W8.

Popular South Korean manufacturer LG is all set to introduce a television that can be folded like a poster. All told, there's no rush to upgrade if you scored one of LG's higher-end TVs in the past year or two. It's the closest LG or anyone has ever come so far to a rollable TV display with full home theater dimensions and we wouldn't be surprised if CES 2019 features it as an actual consumer market item, but it's not quite ready for the mass market at this point. Even if LG does release this panel in the coming years, it'll probably cost many thousands of dollars.
