A few days ago, Corsair introduced a 45-inch display called Xeneon Flex with a panel from LG that you can bend to switch between a flat and curved screen. Turns out LG has also developed its own bendable monitor model. The Korean company has just unveiled the LG OLED Flex or LX3, a 42-inch screen that you can manually adjust until it reaches a curvature of 900R. Note that Corsair’s has a maximum curvature of 800R, and a smaller number means the monitor’s curve is more pronounced.
You can quickly adjust the Flex’s curvature by using a dedicated button on the remote and choosing one of the two available gifts. But you can also manually adjust the degree of curvature in five percent increments, giving you more than 20 curve levels to choose from. You can also tilt the monitor towards or away from you and adjust the height of the stand by 140 millimeters.
Using the company’s backlight-free and self-illuminating OLED technology, LX3 is designed to have a 0.1 millisecond response time and low input lag. It also gives you the option to adjust the size of the image on the screen, so you can choose to use the whole monitor or just part of it, if you want to see the whole image at a glance, for example for games you need aware of your surroundings.
LG also gave the monitor exclusive access to its new Game app, which has shortcuts to popular game-related apps like Twitch and YouTube and lists all your connected external input devices. Speaking of connected devices, the model’s Switching Hub feature allows you to easily switch the device connection between your PC and the monitor. You can use the monitor’s built-in microphone and anything connected to the USB ports, including headsets and keyboards, then press a button to use the devices connected to the PC. Other features include two front-firing 40W speakers, support for Dolby Atmos and support for Dolby Vision gaming.
LG has yet to announce the price or date for the model, but it will showcase the OLED Flex at IFA 2022 in Berlin.
