LG OLED Bendable Displays
According to the Digital Trends report, the company has designed this screen primarily for gaming with a curved interface to deliver an enhanced gaming experience. The company claims that its latest OLED technology allows the display to remain flat, but it allows users to bend and unfold the display with a curvature of up to 1,000R. The report suggests that the display is capable of bending up to a radius of 1,000mm.
The upcoming bendable display will be meant for users to keep it flat for watching movies or TV. It comes with multiple viewers benefits which allow users to see the display from any angle. The ability to transform into a curved monitor is for gaming when only one person is focusing on the display and viewing it from one position.
The report claims that the company is planning to showcase the display at CES 2021 which is going to be held virtually. This year also the event conducting team will not take the risk of gathering thousands of the companies, journalists, and tech enthusiasts to stay safe from the pandemic. LG is also said to show off a new series of its mini-LED TV lineup. The LG curved display is going to arrive with a feature called Cinematic Sound OLED, which vibrates the display panel to produce sound without any speakers.
“LG Display’s 48-inch Bendable CSO display is optimized for gaming as it maximizes the use of advanced technology that produces another level in terms of providing an immersive experience. In other words, it offers the very best gaming environment to gamers,” said Dr. Chang-ho Oh, Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display, in a statement.
