Bendable and foldable displays are the new game in town, and today at IFA, LG is making a splash with its new LG OLED Flex (model LX3), an OLED display that is bendable at the press of a button. Following the recent release of Corsair’s new Xeneon Flex, a bendable 45-inch OLED gaming monitor, born from a collaboration with LG Display, today LG unveiled a TV with similar technology.
Touted as the “World’s First Bendable 42-inch OLED TV”, the LX3 is positioned as a TV and a gaming monitor that is reinventing user-centric customization. The panel can go from flat to extremely curved (900R) to allow users to personalize their viewing experience by letting them select their perfect arc from twenty levels of curvature.
To ensure ergonomic comfort, the LG OLED Flex can be tilted toward up to 10 degrees or away up to 5 degrees from the gamer. The height adjustable stand can go up and down by 140 millimeters to accommodate both people who like to sit up and those who like to lean back.
Users can easily adjust the curvature from the few presets available or using the button on the remote control, manually change the degree of curvature by 5 percent increments over 20 levels.
The Multi-View Mode is made for people who like to view content from two different sources simultaneously and select which audio track they want to listen to. The built-in Dolby Atmos support and the two front-firing 40W speakers aim at delivering a premium sound quality.
On the image quality side, LG OLED Flex supports Dolby Vision gaming at 4K 120Hz and the latest HDMI 2.1 features, such as variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM). The TV is G-SYNC Compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium certified, ensuring a tear- and stutter-free viewing experience.
LG OLED Flex will be on display at IFA 2022 in LG’s booth in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin, and I cannot wait to check it out in the next few days. Stay tuned we will update this article with the photos of the device exhibited at the show.
