If there’s one thing to look forward to at every CES, it would be display technology. This is because without fail, every year companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, and others show off new and exciting display technology that could change the way we use our devices, and give us new experiences.
This year is no different because LG has announced ahead of the event that they will be showcasing what they claim is the world’s first 48-inch bendable OLED display. While curved displays and TVs aren’t new, the difference in this technology is that the user themselves can bend the display according to their liking.
According to LG, “It can therefore be turned into a flat screen while watching TV and used as a curved screen while gaming. The curved display offers a uniform viewing distance from the middle of the screen to its edge, maximizing the visual immersion that is popular among gamers.”
This means that for those who prefer curved displays while gaming can bend it to make it curved, and flatten it out if they want a flat screen experience. The company has not made any announcements regarding its availability or pricing, but if foldable phones are anything to go by, we highly doubt that this display will come cheap.
