LG will show off its paper-thin, rollable OLED panel at CES

It's one of many display concepts LG is eager to demonstrate.

In 2014, LG announced that it built an 18-inch OLED panel that rolls up just like a newspaper. Now, it's ready to show off its ultra-thin beauty to the public CES. It's just one of many concepts that LG hopes will show off what it can do with OLED these days. Back when it was first announced, LG said the rollable OLED panel was only 3 mm thick and featured a 1,200 by 810 pixel resolution. It's unclear if anything has changed over the years, but we'll report back once we check it out. More so than curved screens, thin rollable displays could make truly futuristic devices possible -- imagine a digital news reader that actually felt like a newspaper.

LG is also planning to highlight a paper-thin 55-inch OLED TV display at CES, as well as another 55-inch display that can show two separate images on both sides (which makes it perfect for store signage). It's also making a bigger play for automotive displays with a new 25-inch "waterfall" curved LCD for interiors, as well as a 10.3-inch LCD screen that works when you're wearing gloves.
