LG Display (NYSE: LPL) showed a massive 88-inch panel and a rollable 65-inch screen, both built around OLED displays.

LG's AI OLED TVs will have Google Assistant so users can control them with voice commands. The futuristic television is a high-definition resolution display that can be rolled up and hidden when not in use. The rollable screen, which tucks away into a rectangular box similar to a soundbar when you want to declutter your living room, is just a prototype with no plans to hit the market anytime soon.

LG touts the portability and storage options made available by its new rollable television. That being said, the world's largest electronics show of this year, CES 2018 will raise its curtain tomorrow, 9th January. This technology means the extravagant 65, 75 and 85-inch TVs skirt round the dearth of 8K content by effectively creating their own. Fast forward 9 years, and we almost have our first proper, rollable devices. Now it seems LG has got yet another creation to flaunt its leading class display prowess to the world. It shouldn't come as a surprise if Samsung decides to price the product exorbitantly.

LG hints that in time the giant TV set might be truly portable, making it a handy alternative to projectors for businesses and the perennially indecisive.
