LG’s amazing new OLED TV folds on command


If you like the look of a curved TV or monitor, but aren’t sure how much you’ll like it, a solution to that problem was just announced at IFA Berlin, and it’s is the LG OLED Flex (LX3) (opens in a new tab).

LG’s latest TV features a 42-inch flat screen that can turn into a curved screen at the touch of a button.

LG has given the OLED Flex preset flat and curved modes, but it will also let you adjust the radius of the curve between 20 specific points. Handy if you want to know exactly how much you like your content curved, or if you want to trade based on what you’re watching or playing.

It looks a lot like the recently announced Corsair Xeneon Flex, which LG helped make. Thing is, Corsair’s monitor requires you to fold the screen manually, which isn’t as cool as what LG’s own TV does.

Along with its remote-controlled flex, the OLED Flex also sports Dolby Vision 4K resolution up to 120Hz, support for variable refresh rate and auto low latency mode, built-in microphone, dual 40W speakers with Dolby Atmos, and an adjustable height and angle stand.

You can tell this is an LG TV trying to aim for the gamer crowd. There’s support for G-Sync or FreeSync depending on the graphics card you’re using, a 0.1 millisecond response time, and an LG gaming app with unique screensavers and easy access to gaming services like Twitch. and YouTube. There are also plenty of USB ports for your peripherals, which you can connect via the OLED Flex to your PC via an HDMI cable.

The most useful gaming-focused feature is the ability to switch the screen between 32-inch and 27-inch edged modes. These will make gaming closer to the screen much more comfortable, allowing the OLED Flex to double as a monitor, assuming your desk has enough space.

If you’re undecided as to what you want to watch and whether you want a curved screen or not, LG’s Multi View mode is here to help. Thanks to this, you can watch videos from two different sources at once and select which one plays audio.

LG has yet to give a price or release date for the OLED Flex, but it already looks like a tempting product for gamers and regular buyers interested in getting a curved display that works perfectly for them. We look forward to testing it when it becomes available.
