LG has announced its first bendable OLED TV that works either completely flat or as a curved screen. The LG OLED Flex (LX3) It is a 42-inch OLED TV that bends to curved TV (900R) thanks to LG’s latest display technology. Curved screens are suitable for a more immersive gaming experience, while flat screens are better for watching broadcast TV or streaming services.
LG OLED Flex owners can automatically flex and adjust the TV into its curved position using a dedicated button on the TV’s remote control. (Unlike some conversion screens that It must be adjusted manually). There are two presets or owners can adjust the screen curve in five percent increments through 20 different levels.
LG is already marketing its 42-inch bendable screen to gamers, thanks to a host of features that console or PC gamers will find appealing. The LX3 supports Dolby Vision games at 4K 120Hz, and includes the latest HDMI 2.1 features such as Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). LG also supports Nvidia’s G-Sync or AMD’s FreeSync technologies to reduce tearing and stuttering during games.
This TV definitely looks more like a giant screen, and there’s also a height-adjustable stand that also lets you tilt the screen toward or away from you. There are also game modes that let you downsize your 42-inch screen to 32- or 27-inch sizes if you don’t want to play certain games at the full size of your TV. LG also has a built-in gaming app that includes custom screensavers and shortcuts for Twitch and YouTube.
Players can also use LG’s multi-display mode to view content from two different sources at the same time. So, you can use the LG Flex to play a PC or console game, while watching a YouTube video streamed to the TV from the phone at the same time.

Just announced a pirate 45 inch bendable gaming monitora Chinese TV manufacturer Skyworth announced Her own flex TV converted last year.
