LG 'launching rollable TV in 2019'

LG will reportedly launch a rollable TV in 2019.

Following on from one of the most-talked about products in 2018, the foldable cell phone, the South Korean technology giants are now believed to have laid out plans to start selling the screens that can be rolled up like a poster and stored away.

A source has told Bloomberg, that the 65-inch model will be able to roll up at the click of a button, just like an automatic garage door.

The insider also told the news outlet that the screens will be OLED for finer and clear images, but also because it will be more foldable than LCD.

LG displayed the new screens earlier this year.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that LG may not be ready to showcase their foldable phone at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019.

This could spell bad news for the company as top brands, including Samsung and Huawei, are in a race to see who can produce the most effective folding smartphone first.

Meanwhile, Sony recently filed a patent for a foldable and transparent smartphone.

The tech giant filed documents back in May with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), which were finally published last month.

According to the plans, they are working on the design of a "dual-sided transparent smartphone" and a "foldable transparent smartphone".

Included is a sketch of the various ideas Sony has in mind for its future product.

Transparent phones will be a long way off just yet, as many brands are currently only just finding ways to hide the elements that make up a phone, such as front-facing cameras, ear-pieces and sensors, behind the screen.
