LG Display developed a bendable 48-inch OLED gaming monitor

LG Display will demonstrate a 48-inch bendable gaming monitor, at CES 2021 (January 11). The whole panel is just 0.6 mm thick, which enabled LG to embed its Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) technology in the monitor, which turns it into a large speaker. The monitor offers a response time of 0.1 ms and a refresh rate of 40Hz to 120Hz.

The display can bend up to radius of 1,000 mm so it can be used both as a flat TV and a curved screen for immersive gaming. This seems to be a prototype display, it's not clear when we'll see a monitor producer adopting it and bringing it to market.


LG is already supplying its 55-inch WOLED panels to gaming monitor makers, such as Dell's Alienware brand and Acer. The company has been developing bendable OLED technologies for many years. In 2014, LG unveiled a bendable 77" 4K OLED with plans to release it in 2015. This never happened as curved TVs went out of grace, but hopefully this time LG will indeed commercialize such panels.
