LG takes On Samsung With 105-inch Curved UHD TV And Flexible Display Technology
LG's 105-inch curved UHDTV is pretty impressive. Flank it with 65-inch curved TVs, and you get a real sense of the curvature.
We also had a chance to see the new flexible curved OLED TVs in action. Press a button on the TV’s remote control, and it quickly moves from the curved position (best for an audience directly in front of it) to a flat position that accommodates a more widespread audience.
LG 79-inch flexible OLED HDTV, first curved, and then, just a few seconds later, perfectly flat. The TV is a little noisy as it straightens out, but the movement looks fluid.
Curved displays are already showing up in phones, some of which are headed to the U.S. early this year. LG showed us some phone-size curved OLED displays that made traditional, rigid smartphone displays seem clunky.
That device in the center is the display used in the screen at right. LG representatives encouraged us to bend it to get a sense of its flexibility, but cautioned us against folding it. It's not an e-newspaper just yet.
