LG Display will use this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to showcase a prototype display technology that can be rolled up.
The OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology is “the world’s first 30R 18-inch rollable display that can be rolled-up like a newspaper,” according to a press release from LG Display.
OLEDs feature images with enhanced clarity, deeper colour saturation and sharper contrast than liquid crystal displays.
Although additional details of the innovative foldable display have not yet been released, the technology could serve as a compact companion display for smaller mobile devices such as smartphones.
Display technologies are often in the spotlight at CES. In 2010, Sprint and Skiff used the huge technology event to demo a flexible display prototype aimed at the e-book, newspaper and magazine markets.
Three years ago at CES, LG Display unveiled the world’s first big-screen OLED TV.
Other LG Display technologies on show at CES 2016 include 65-inch and 77-inch UHD OLED TV panels and a 55-inch prototype paper-thin OLED TV display. The company will also showcase a matching pair of 65-inch extreme-curve concave/convex OLED displays and an 11.6-inch 2-in-1 notebook that combines a notebook with a tablet.
More than 3,600 companies are expected to take part in CES 2016.
