Samsung patents a rollable display device with fingerprint sensor

The first on the list of LG's products seems to be a TV display that sports 8K resolution and 88-inch OLED display. For instance, 88-inch 4K LED TV will set you back by $20,000 and you can imagine how much expensive the new LG 8K TV will be.

LG Electronics takes a lot of pride in its display sub-division as they churn out the best displays available in the market.

Samsung has been granted a patent for a rollable OLED display with a built-in fingerprint scanner, hinting at the future of where its mobile devices could go. So expect nothing less than that for a TV with double the resolution.

It's a huge step above the company's current largest TV offering, a 77-inch 4K display. The entertainment industry is just catching up with support for 4K and will take a bit longer to rally behind 8K at this rate. Given that a smaller 77-inch 4K OLED now sells for around £20,000, you can probably draw your own conclusions about retail potential.

LG has been at the forefront of OLED display technology with a full range of 4K OLED TVs. The device had a 5.7-inch screen and was mere 0.3mm thick and weighed just 5 grams. It's a chance to mark the company as the leader in crisp, amazing, jaw-dropping OLED TVs. The idea of a folding phone is nothing new but we have yet to see a device that has a fully functional display that can flex and work like any ordinary smartphone screen.

LG Display's E6 plant has production capacity of 30,000 units of Gen 6 flexible OLED panel per month. Also as they are powered by the self-emissive OLEDs, they do not need backlight units leading to very slim profile.

The cylindrical model comes with a roller that can rotate to spirally wind the flexible display panel.

The rumour mill suggests we will see a new version of Samsung's rollable tablet and perhaps even a rollable phone at CES 2018 this January.
