LG unveils bendable 42″ OLED TV
August 31, 2022
LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled its LG OLED Flex (model LX3), a new TV boasting a bendable 42-inch OLED screen. The LX3’s display can go from completely flat to curved (900R), letting users choose their ideal arc from twenty levels of curvature, for a personalised viewing experience.
The form factor of the LG OLED Flex is made possible by LG’s backlight-free, self-lit OLED technology. Whether flat or curved, the LG OLED evo technology-equipped LX3 delivers the same picture quality and performance. Providing infinite contrast, deep blacks, highly-accurate colours, a 0.1 millisecond response time and low input lag, LG says its OLED Flex will make users feel like they’re part of the on-screen action.
Users can quickly adjust the LX3’s curvature to one of two available presets using the dedicated button on the remote control or manually change the degree of curvature in five per cent increments over 20 different levels. Additionally, the screen of LG OLED Flex can be tilted toward up to 10 degrees or away up to 5 degrees from the user and has a height-adjustable stand – up or down by 140 millimeters – guaranteeing ergonomic comfort for those who like to sit up, and those who like to lean back.
The LX3 also comes with exclusive features and functions that give users greater control over their gaming experience. For example, they can adjust the size of the onscreen image according to their individual preferences or the genre of game they’re playing.
The new Game app, which is exclusive to the LX3, supports custom screensavers, offers shortcuts to popular apps, such as Twitch and YouTube, and provides a list of connected external input devices, all on the same screen. Revamped for LG OLED Flex, LG’s Gaming Optimizer adds customised sound settings for specific game genres to its diverse range of gamer-centric picture and audio options. Gamers will also appreciate the LX3’s Multi View mode, which allows them to view content from two different sources simultaneously and select which audio they want to hear. This means they can play a PC or a console game while watching YouTube videos streamed from their smartphone at the same time.
The LX3 also features two front-firing 40W speakers that help further elevate the gaming and content-viewing experience. And with built-in support for Dolby Atmos, the TV adds greater clarity, depth and liveliness to audio on compatible titles.
