LG launches 65-inch 'rollable' TV at CES 2018

Samsung is not the only South Korean tech giant that is launching innovative TVs this year at CES 2018. LG too has set up a new benchmark first by announcing the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV and now by introducing a 65-inch 'rollable' TV. 

The firm's new 4K TV can be rolled in a tube form and carried around in a box, making it highly portable. The reason for this is the use of OLED or organic light emitting diode display. While this is as innovative as it gets, LG has not yet revealed the specifics of the TV .
The prices and the availability details of the 'rollable' TV have also not been revealed, making it clear that the appliance is still in the 'prototype' stages.

LG has been teasing the concept since years now. It is worth adding that this is not the company's first rollable TV in the market. At CES 2016 it showcased a similar rollable TV with a smaller 18-inch screen. Samsung is yet to make a mark in the particular segment. For now the company is sticking with curved AMOLED screens on smartphones and QLED panels in TVs.

Samsung however, is giving a good competition to LG this CES 2018 in the television segment. The company has introduced what it claims is the world's first 146-inch 'modular' TV. Named 'The Wall', the TV includes MicroLEDs that serve as their own source of light and don't require color filters or backlight.

There is no word on the pricing and availability of The Wall by Samsung. It shouldn't come as a surprise if Samsung decides to price the product exorbitantly. Like LG, Samsung too has kept majority of the specifications a secret for now.

While LG this CES is also showcasing the world's first 88-inch 8K OLED TV, Samsung is showcasing its first curved monitor with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
