LG will demo a 'bendable' OLED gaming monitor at CES 2021


In addition to several transparent OLED demos, LG Display will also be showing off a gaming-related concept product at its CES 2021 virtual showroom: a 48-inch “Bendable CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) display” that can switch between a flat screen and a curved screen. The idea here is that you can enjoy watching videos in flat screen mode, and at the press of a button, the monitor morphs into a curved screen — up to 1,000mm radius — for more immersive gaming.

This demo may remind you of last year’s inflight entertainment demo, in which a 65-inch screen could transform into a curved mode. What’s new this time is the “CSO” aspect: there’s a 0.6mm-thick film exciter underneath, which turns the entire OLED panel into a speaker. This allows for a slimmer monitor, and with the audio coming directly from the screen, both gaming and video watching apparently become more immersive.

While the Korean firm didn’t specify this panel’s resolution nor refresh rate, it did hint at support for variable refresh rate going from 40Hz to 120Hz, which is the bare minimum for a gaming monitor these days. Others are already offering 240Hz or even 360Hz, but they obviously lack transformation capability. We will share more once we get to see a live demo of this shape-shifting monitor.
