The roll-up TV from LG

For LG, the show was especially the opportunity to officially unveil a product on which he has been working for several years, a roll-up TV for its LG Signature range.

"We are exploring different formats for smartphones, including collapsible and rollable. Because display technologies have grown so much that we can now develop them in very flexible formats. And with 5G, if the market needs larger screens, we will need to fold them or roll them up. So we're working on it, "said LG's executive.
A screen that could be offered to other manufacturers

It is unclear for the moment what the device could look like and there is no indication that it will ever be marketed. It does indeed currently appear only at the stage of research and development, but know that a major player like LG, which provides slabs of many manufacturers, working on this technology suggests that this smartphone format will arrive well. day on the market.
