LG Display will showcase the world's first 48-inch Bendable Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO), designed for gaming, at this year’s virtual CES.

The 48-inch Bendable CSO display bends and unfolds with a curvature radius of up to 1,000R, meaning that it can be made to bend up to a radius of 1,000mm without affecting image quality.

The suggestion from the display company is that it would serve as a flat screen while watching TV, curving for immersive gameplay. The curved display offers a uniform viewing distance from the middle of the screen to its edge.

This bendable OLED follows the unveiling of a next generation transparent OLED display, which will also feature as part of its online CES 2021 exhibit. The transparent OLED has applications in travel and hospitality, as well as residential.

We’ve seen bendable OLED screens from LG Display before, but this is the first to target gamers and feature integrated advanced audio. The company’s CSO technology allows the screen itself to vibrate, and therefore generate sound without the use for additional speakers.

The 48-inch Bendable CSO display’s ultra slim film exciter, which is the part that vibrates the display, has been reduced to a thickness of just 0.6mm, from 9mm.

With a response time of 0.1 milliseconds (ms), and a wide variable refresh rate range from 40Hz to 120Hz, it’s a suitable match for next gen gaming platforms.

The display has also been recognized and certified by global certification organizations as emitting low levels of blue light and being flicker-free.

“LG Display’s 48-inch Bendable CSO display is optimized for gaming as it maximizes the use of advanced technology that produces another level in terms of providing an immersive experience. In other words, it offers the very best gaming environment to gamers,” says Dr. Chang-ho Oh, Executive Vice President & Head of the TV Business Unit at LG Display.
