LG has announced that they will be unveiling the world’s first 48-inch Bendable Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) gaming monitor at the upcoming CES 2021 event.
The new display is 48-inch in size and features a bendable design, thanks to the paper-thin OLED panel that is used here. The display has a curvature of 1000R for an immersive gaming experience. The interesting part is that the display can be set to a normal flat screen while watching movies and can be returned to its curved state during gaming. The display also features a 120Hz refresh rate along with a fast response time of just 0.1ms. While the native resolution of the screen is not confirmed yet, we believe that this will be among the 4K category.
Dr. Chang-ho Oh, the Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display stated that “LG Display’s 48-inch Bendable CSO display is optimized for gaming as it maximizes the use of advanced technology that produces another level in terms of providing an immersive experience. In other words, it offers the very best gaming environment to gamers”.
Another great feature of the display is the ability of the screen to vibrate and double as a speaker. This particular model does not have built-in speakers and produces sound by the vibration of the screen with the help of an exciter. This exciter is mounted behind the display panel and features a thickness of only 0.6m. On the contrary, the CSO display concept that was introduced many years ago also had an exciter, but with a thickness of 9mm. It’s amazing how far display technologies have come and now we have bendable OLED displays for gaming.
