LG has introduced LG OLED Flex – the world’s first bendable 42-inch OLED screen – to create a more immersive experience for gamers and movie lovers.
One of the biggest decisions for gamers who are in the market for a monitor is whether to buy a curved or flat screen.
Now, with the new LG OLED Flex (Model LX3) – they can have both.
The LX3, which will be unveiled at the IFA tech trade show in Berlin, can go from being completely flat to a 900R curve at the press of a button.
Users can choose their ideal arc from one of twenty levels of curvature.
The curvature can be changed in 5-degree increments.
The screen has a height-adjustable stand and can be tilted forward 10 degrees and backwards five degrees.
This is only made possibly LG’s flexible OLED technology which offers flicker-free, self-lit pixels that offer deep blacks, infinite contrast and vibrant colours.
And with a 0.1 millisecond response time and low input lag, it makes it an ideal choice for gamers.
The screen is driven by the LG a (Alpha) 9 Gen processor which offers eye comfort thanks to its flicker-free and glare-free qualities.
Users can adjust the size of the onscreen image based on the game they are playing with role playing game and driving game players preferring the entire 42-inch image while real time strategy and first-person shooter game players may opt for a narrower view to ensure they can see everything happening in the game at a glance.
The onboard LG Game Optimizer provides shortcuts to popular streaming apps like Twitch and YouTube and access controls for audio including an equaliser and AI for Game Sound and Dolby Atmos.
Multi View mode allows users to view content from two different sources at the same time while selecting what audio you want to hear.
The LG OLED Flex has two front-firing 40W speakers with built-in support for Dolby Atmos.
Users can play 4K games at up to 120Hz through the latest HDMI 2.1 ports with support for VRR (variable refresh rate) and ALLM (auto low latency mode).
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
