LG and Samsung Show Off Flexible TVs

LG Flexible OLED TV

At CES 2014, LG and Samsung demonstrated they have figured out how to bend glass on their new TV prototypes. LG’s 77-inch Flexible OLED TV gives viewers total control over the angle of their TV’s curvature, right from their remote. Not to be outdone, Samsung showed a 85-inch (model U9B) Bendable UHD LED TV that transforms from a flat panel to a curved TV design with a touch of a button.

LG says the range of curvature was determined by taking into account key factors that affect the viewing experience such as screen size and viewing distance. Since the viewer can adjust the curvature, they can enjoy the best TV viewing experience, tailored to their tastes, every time.

Samsung Bendable UHD TV

LG further stated its 77-inch OLED TV is the result of technological integration encompassing all aspects of producing a product as innovative as this TV, such as design, displays, quality assurance, etc. The Flexible OLED TV has been subject to tens of thousands of hours of tests to ensure the reliability and durability of its unique display.

Although curved or flexible TV certainly look cool, I am unsold what the actual benefits are for such displays.

Availability
There is no word on pricing or availability from LG, but Samsung’s 85″ U9B Bendable UHD TV is expected in the second half of 2014. In other words, maybe this year.
