In the future, the number of devices with flexible screens is predicted to increase. LG proved this by showing off the OLED Flex (model LX3).
LG OLED Flex features
The LG OLED Flex (model LX3) is the world’s first TV to adopt 42-inch flexible OLED display panel technology. Previously, a similar flexible OLED display panel technology could be found in the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 which has a 45-inch panel. The difference is, the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is a Gaming monitor. Meanwhile, the OLED Flex is a TV.
To bend the screen panel, this TV relies on a motor system that can move automatically. You do this by pressing the button on the remote. There are 20 options for the level of curvature or curvature of the screen panel with the addition of a bending angle of 5 percent each. The maximum curvature or degree of curvature is up to 900R. So, it can be adjusted according to user needs.
The display on the screen will also look sharp at 4K resolution. In addition, there is support for Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor technology. This processor is useful for boosting image quality. Not only that, this TV also supports a 120 Hz refresh rate, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and an HDMI 2.1 port is available. The OLED Flex is also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync technologies. That way it can be relied on to play games on a PC or next generation game console like the Playstation 5.

Although it has been announced there is no further information when and the price of the LG OLED Flex will be on the market.
