LG to roll out new bendable screen at CES

LG has revealed a new screen that can be rolled up like a newspaper. The smartphone manufacturer will officially unveil the technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016, which starts tomorrow in Las Vegas.

We've been hearing about bendable screens for years - displays that users can fold or manipulate in other ways. Samsung, Sony, Sharp and more have all demonstrated concepts in the last few years, but we're still waiting for the first device that realises that potential.

LG has some form here, however- the LG G Flex is a curved handset that bends slightly to avoid damage if someone sits on it. Its latest screen looks to be much more flexible though.

The new display that LG will likely unveil later this week is a sizable 18-inches, and it'll be interesting to see how LG applies the technology. The company certainly appears to be invested in the tech - Its curved screens will have a big presence at CES.

As well as the 19-inch roll-up display, LG will also show a 25-inch curved screen that can be installed into a car. It'll also demonstrate a new 55-inch 'paper-thin' TV screen.

CES 2016 starts tomorrow, so no doubt there will be much more information on the way.
