LG to show off roll-up OLED display at CES

LG will show off a roll-up OLED display prototype at CES this week.

The new display technology takes the form of an 18-inch OLED screen that can be rolled up like a newspaper.

If that sounds strangely familiar, it’s because the company offered a sneak peak at the technology as far back as July 2014. However, this represents the first time LG is willing to send its foldable display out into the public domain – even if it is still only at the prototype stage.

We’ve also seen similar display technology from the likes of Samsung and Sony in the past, but it looks like LG will be the first to push an example of it out as part of a wider vision at a major consumer electronics show like CES.

The foldable display will sit in LG’s private showroom, which will be divided into sections devoted to OLED and LCD display products.
