LG and Samsung unveil flexible TVs that can be curved or flat
Don’t know if you’d prefer a curved or flat TV for your next purchase? You can actually have both with LG and Samsung unveiling flexible displays at CES.
LG pulled the curtain back on a 77-inch flexible OLED TV that allows the viewer to control the screen’s angle of curvature in a real technology breakthrough.
Samsung also choose the International Consumer Electronics Show to take the covers of its 85-inch bendable TV that can go from flat to curved at the touch of a button.
It is the second year in a row that fierce rivals LG and Samsung have released brand new technologies almost simultaneously at CES.
Last year each company vying to offer the world’s first curved OLED when they both appeared at
This year both companies have taken it a step further with their own flexible OLED screens.
LG’s flexible TV can be adjusted to an angle that is decided by the viewer with a remote control take into account the viewing experience they want, how far they are sitting from the screen and the size of the screen.
Samsung is called their TV bendable and is slightly larger than the LG model at 85-inches.
Curved TVs have yet to be accepted by the mass market and that will be helped along with the large number of models that are heading our way this year.
These flexible TVs are aimed at the consumers who may not be able to decide between a new flat or curved TV and want the best of both worlds.
There is no release date announced for the LG and Samsung flexible/bendable displays at this point as they are still considered as a concept product.
