The South Korean tech giant showcased the panel - which rolls up like a newspaper - at January's annual CES 2018 show in Las Vegas.

LG has been leading the way in large-sized and mid-sized OLED displays for TV, auto-components and lighting.

Last week, meanwhile, LG teased an 88-inch 8K OLED TV that will also makes its debut at the show. But we'll likely hear more when CES kicks off this week.
