LG Electronics to showcase the world's biggest 'rollable' TV at CES 2018

LG kicked things off with a keynote addressed by I.P. Park, Executive Vice President and CTO, LG, who stated that the company's ThinQ AI will be the central focus for all its products in 2018. The display can also be used to look up recipes, update grocery lists and play music, and can even be used to control smart appliances produced by other manufacturers. The dream of a roll-away, big-screen HDTV is now finally a reality thanks to LG's stunning 65-inch, rollable UHD, which the company unveiled at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Over time though, prices will fall as the technology becomes more ubiquitous. Thankfully, Sony is fixing that omission by not only adding Dolby Vision to its new TV set, but also to high-end models that launched in 2017.

Just when TVs are getting bigger and slimmer, LG has come up with a refreshing 65-inch Ultra HD OLED television design with a "rollable" screen - a first-of-its-kind in the industry.

The flexibility of the display or we can say an OLED Television allows you to carry it along with you anytime anywhere.

Firefighting efforts resume on burning tanker off China

President Trump Honors the Legacy of Dr. King
Trump says the "so-called bipartisan" deal "was a big step backwards" because it doesn't fund a wall along the Mexican border. President Trump said he used "strong" language during an immigration meeting and denied saying an unspecified remark.

FDA approves first drug to treat inherited breast cancer
The researchers found that 12 percent of patients had a pathogenic BRCA mutation. A person's cancer risk can vary a lot depending on which mutation they have.

The TV boasts maximum resolution with 33 million pixels (7680x4320), which is 16 times more than FHD (1920x1080) and 4 times more than UHD (3840x2160). That being said, the world's largest electronics show of this year, CES 2018 will raise its curtain tomorrow, 9th January.

Apart from that, LG Display will exhibit a variety of LCD products that utilize its IPS technology, including a 65-inch Art Glass display for TVs and 14-inch and 31.5-inch displays for monitors. Both the TV series run Android TV operating system and comes with built-in support for Google Assistant. There aren't much details about this TV but the fact that it can roll up already makes it one of the most interesting devices. That also means the rolled up portion of the new LG panel won't use any power while the strip at the top is in use. TV makers have been implementing press-to-speak voice controls into their remotes for years, but they've always been a little on the dumb side because their AI just wasn't very good.

One of this year's standouts?
