LG will use the digital CES 2021, which starts on January 11th, to present the world’s first flexible 48-inch OLED display. The display is called CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) and is intended to enable “paper-thin” monitors with a curvature of up to 1,000R and at the same time also function as a sound module.
The Cinematic Sound OLED display should be optimized for games and so flexible that it enables both “flat” and “curved” monitors with a maximum radion of 1,000 millimeters. The display itself should be able to be bent without being functionally restricted in any way.
The idea here is that we can give it a normal use to work or enjoy watching any type of multimedia content in flat screen mode. And with the press of a button , the monitor becomes a curved screen (with a radius up to 1000mm) to enhance the immersive gaming experience without compromising image quality.
In addition to a 4K / UHD resolution with 3,840 × 2,160 pixels, the manufacturer promises a refresh rate of 120 Hz via HDMI 2.1 and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) with 40 to 120 Hz, an “immersive experience” for gamers.
The second special feature of the flexible CSO display is its suitability as a sound module. The OLED can vibrate and generate its own tones without the need for speakers. By using the display as a sound module, the player should be given the feeling that the protagonists would interact with him directly from the games.
Currently, there are no data on the commercialization of this new LG proposal. The retail price has not been disclosed either. To do this, we will have to wait for the official presentation at CES 2021 that will begin this month of January.
