LG Electronics has introduced what it is calling, the LG OLED Flex (model LX3). According to the company, this will be the world’s first bendable 42-inch OLED screen. The LG OLED Flex comes as a brand-new era of screen customization and is ideal for immersive console, PC, and cloud gaming as well as enjoying live TV broadcasts and content streaming services.
Users can select their ideal arc from twenty levels of curvature on the LX3’s amazing display, which can transform from absolutely flat to magnificently curving (900R) for a genuinely customized viewing experience.
LG’s backlight-free, self-lit OLED technology makes the LG OLED Flex conceivable. Whether flat or curved, the LG OLED evo-equipped LX3 delivers amazing picture quality and performance. LG OLED Flex has limitless contrast, deep blacks, accurate colours (100 percent colour fidelity verified), a lightning-fast 0.1 millisecond reaction time, and low input latency.
LG OLED Flex features flicker-free and glare-free certifications in addition to lifelike image quality powered by an α (Alpha) 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor and unique picture algorithms. The LX3’s OLED screen reduces eye fatigue for longer gaming and binge-watching sessions. Another feature, the super anti-reflection (SAR) coating, reduces visual distractions so users can focus on the screen.
The foldable 42-inch display may be customized for a more personalized experience. Users can modify the LX3’s curvature to one of two presets or manually in 5% increments over 20 settings. LG OLED Flex’s screen can be tilted 10 degrees toward or away from the user and is height-adjustable by 140 mm, ensuring ergonomic comfort for sitters and leaners.
The LX3 has exclusive features and functions that give gamers more control. Users can alter the image size based on their tastes or the game genre. RPG, racing, and platformer fans will want to use the entire 42-inch screen, while RTS and FPS gamers may prefer a 32- or 27-inch display to view everything at once. The picture resizing feature is accessible via the Gaming Dashboard menu, where users can position the smaller image high, low, or centered.
The new Game app on the LX3 lets you set up screensavers, gives you quick links to popular apps like Twitch and YouTube, and shows you which external input devices are connected. LG’s Gaming Optimizer for LG OLED Flex has customizable sound settings for particular game genres. Its game sound settings panel features an equalizer, AI Game Sound and Dolby Atmos switches, and advanced audio options, allowing users to customize their gaming experience.
The Multi View option allows gamers to view content from two sources at the same time and select which audio to hear. They can play a PC or console game while streaming YouTube videos on their phone. The Switching Hub function lets you use the LG OLED Flex’s built-in microphone and USB peripherals like a headset, keyboard, or mouse with a PC connected by HDMI. Users can switch between PC and LG OLED Flex by pressing the source switching button on the LX3’s stand. The built-in mic reduces echo for clear gaming chats.
The LX3’s two front-firing 40W speakers enhance gaming and content viewing. With Dolby Atmos compatibility, the TV improves audio clarity, depth, and vitality. With Dolby Vision gaming at 4K 120Hz and HDMI 2.1 features like variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM), LG’s OLED TVs, including the new LG OLED Flex, offer one of the best big-screen gaming experiences.
LG’s flexible display is G-SYNC compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium certified, delivering tear- and stutter-free graphics. LG OLED Flex’s shield-like rear design includes a configurable illumination feature. The LX3’s lighting synchronizes with the video or audio of the on-screen content, enabling five modes.
The LG Flex LX3 will be showcased at IFA 2022, and availability and pricing will be revealed in the coming weeks.
