Here is LGD's rollable 65" OLED TV prototype

LG Display is demonstrating its latest prototype at CES, a 65" rollable OLED TV that can roll inside its base when not in use. The video below shows this display in action, although we cannot see how the display actually rolls inside the box which is a shame:

Remember that this is still just a prototype display, and it's likely that LGD has no immediate plans to actually release such a display. Last year LGD said it plans to bring rollable OLED TVs to market by 2020.

LGD brings a rollable 65" OLED TV to CES 2018

LG Electronics is bringing its new OLED TV lineup to CES this week, and LG Display already said it will demonstrate a 88-inch 8K OLED panel at the trade show. However the most exciting display will probably be LGD's newest prototype - a 65" rollable OLED TV that comes with a base that holds the TV when it is rolled away.

This is a prototype display, and it's likely that LGD has no immediate plans to actually release such a display. Last year LGD did say it plans to bring rollable OLED TVs to market by 2020.

LGD aims to produce rollable OLED TVs by 2020

Following LGD's recent demonstration of a 77" flexible and transparent OLED display, the company has now decided (according to Business Korea, anyway) to start producing rollable large-area (55 to 75 inch) OLED TVs in 2020.

LGD will produce these rollable TVs in its upcoming P10 OLED fab in Paju. The P10 is LGD's most ambitious OLED fab - with a price tag of over $8 billion, it is expected to commence production in 2018, although it will take some time before mass production begins. The P10 will exclusively be used to produce OLEDs - both OLED TV panels (9-Gen or 10-Gen substrates, it seems LG did not decide yet) and small/medium flexible OLEDs.

LGD to show case new OLED technologies at CES 2017

OLEDNet posted an article detailing the OLED technologies LG Display will showcase at CES 2017 in two days. LGD's most innovative displays will be a rollable 77" OLED TV panel and a double-sided UHD 77" display. LGD was also supposed to showcase a rollable OLED TV in CES 2016 - hopefully this time the company will actually show such a display in public.

In addition to those 77" displays, LGD will also showcase a 55" transparent FHD OLED. LGD demonstrated a similar display at CES 2016, but hopefully this new display will be closer to commercialization and maybe LGD will indeed detail such plans at CES. OLEDNet says that the new transparent display will feature improved colors and more natural image quality.

ITRI demonstrates rollable AMOLED technologies

Two months ago Taiwan's ITRI institute demonstrated a foldable AMOLED display - which fold both inwardly and outwardly. Last week at Touch Taiwan, ITRI demonstrated a rollable AMOLED:

In addition to the foldable OLED, ITRI showed 36 different flexible display technologies - including new materials, substrates and patterning equipment.

Graphene enables KAIST researchers to create highly flexible OLEDs

Researchers from Korea's KAIST institute developed a rollable OLED device that uses graphene-based electrodes. The researchers say that the new OLED is much more durable when bent compared to current devices made with ITO electrodes.

The electrodes were made from a stack of materials - titanium oxides, graphene and conductive polymers. The new OLEDs were also brighter than current devices, and with a higher color gamut. This was achieved by maximizing the resonance within the OLED.

Samsung Display demonstrates a rollable OLED

At SID 2016, Samsung Display demonstrated its latest rollable OLED, a 5.7" display that features a Full-HD resolution (386 PPI) and a curvature radius of 10 mm. The whole display is 0.3 mm thick and weighs 5 grams.

According to reports, Samsung is getting ready to release its first foldable OLED phone soon. Such a device will require a display with a very small curvature radius. According to SamMobile, the device will be called the Galaxy X and it will feature a display with a 4K resolution.

LGD to showcase new OLED panels at CES 2016

LG Display announced it will showcase several OLED prototypes and products at CES 2016 next week. LGD will show 65" and 77" 4K HDR OLED TVs, a paper-thin 55" concept, a 139" Vertical-Tiled OLED display and a 18" rollable OLED that has a curvature radius of 30 mm.

Most of these displays were already on display. The 18" rollable OLED was first demonstrated in July 2014 and in May 2015 LGD announced flat 0.97 mm thick 55" OLEDs. The 139" tiled display is now, although a few months ago LGD did showcase a 111" double-sided wave display that was made from three attached 65" 4K OLED panels.
