With CES 2014 just around the corner, latest reports have suggested both Samsung and LG will unveil flexible OLED TVs at the Las Vegas-based show.
With both manufacturers having showcased curved OLED televisions during the 2013 rendition of CES, January’s showpiece convention will reportedly see the Korean rivals take things one step further.
It has been suggested that the rumoured flexible screen OLED TVs will feature sizeable curved panels which can have the angle of curvature altered using the unit’s accompanying remote control.
While there are sure to be many who question the necessity of this sort of feature on a television, it has been suggested that the ‘flexible’ and adjustable curve will allow users to angle their TVs to better suit the seating positions of multiple viewers.
Although confirmed details on these futuristic, flexible OLED TVs are still few and far between, it is not believed that the angle of flex will extend beyond just a few degrees.
With LG having launched the world’s first flexible phone in recent months, it is expected that a flexible OLED TV will adopt similar technologies, with a plastic display panel allowing for the bend where a glass substrate would not.
Citing unnamed insiders, the Korean Times has reported: “Samsung and LG will unveil prototypes of remote-controlled flexible OLED TVs ㅡ considered the next big thing in the industry ㅡ at the International Consumer Electronics (ICES) next month.”
Although exact screen sizes have yet to be confirmed, the sources have claimed that the flexible TVs will be “huge.”
CES 2014 will be held between January 6 and 10. The TrustedReviews team will be on hand to bring you all the latest from the Las Vegas convention.
