"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader and for this reason, LG Display is accelerating its research and development into OLED so that we can provide differentiated products to customers and markets". Sony's Android TV works with Amazon Alexa to play, pause, fast forward, and rewind.

One of the features LG have been able to implement using the rollable technology is having the TV operate in different formats.

Perhaps more than any other piece of consumer technology, TVs seem to be on a relentless march forward. According to LG, OLED technology gives ultra-high resolution without disturbing the image brightness. The TV, that comes with a 65-inch 4K OLED rollable display is expected to make its first appearance during the CES 2018 to be held at Las Vegas. Aesthetically, the TVs don't differ from the 2017 range, but internally they've received a healthy bump in specifications.

LG just concluded its CES 2018 event, and not surprisingly, the company's focus was connected home appliances.

The South Korean tech giant said it aims to sell 2.8 million large-size OLED displays this year and plans to increase its sales target of large-size OLED displays to 6.5 million units in 2020. It's as crisp and vibrant and handsome as the rest of the company's OLED portfolio, only it's that extra bit thinner, allowing it to be rolled down (kinda like a projector screen flipped on its head).

At CES today, LG unveiled its latest lineup of 4K OLED and LCD TVs, complete with enhanced HDR and 120-fps functionality, Dolby Atmos immersive audio, the company's new ThinQ artificial-intelligence technology, the new Alpha 9 intelligent processor, and full-array local dimming (FALD) backlighting.

Also, the foldable feature isn't the only USP of the TV given that it also excels in its primary role as well, that of a TV in the first place. But LG Display wouldn't divulge any details as to when we'd actually see laptops with the improved screens and sound systems.
