LG has unveiled an exciting OLED TV at IFA 2022. The LG Flex LX3 already has its core feature in its name. So, thanks to a bendable panel, you should be able to use it either as a straight or curved TV.
LG Flex LX3 resembles monitor from Corsair
Once you take a look at the previous highlights of IFA 2022, the LG Flex’s bendable design will certainly look familiar. For example, Corsair already presented a similar device at gamescom, which took place a week before IFA. The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is, strictly speaking, even related to the now presented LG Flex. After all, the bendable panels in both monitors come from LG. But the LG Flex LX3 is a bit flatter at 42 inches than Corsair’s gaming monitor, which measures 45 inches. The LG Flex LX3’s bendable design allows users to either use the monitor in a classic flat position or with a curvature of up to 900R. This will presumably be done either manually or with the help of an included remote control.
Refresh rate and resolution convince
The LG Flex LX3 also convinces at first glance aside from the bendable design. Thus, with 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 42 inches in size, it not only offers a pleasingly sharp picture. On top of that, 120 Hz refresh rates ensure smooth motion pictures. The heart of the whole thing is supposed to be an a9 CPU of the meanwhile fifth generation. By the way, not only the bending of the LG Flex is variable. On top of that, you should also be able to adjust the screen’s diagonal with the help of the so-called gaming dashboard. Especially if you use the 42-incher as a classic monitor, a smaller diagonal might be appropriate.
Sound-wise, the LG Flex also brings a lot to the table. For example, the manufacturer from South Korea installs two speakers on the front of the TV, each with 40 watts of power and Dolby Atmos. A suitable soundbar might be the Yamaha SR-C30A, which is also presented at IFA 2022. LEDs on the back are supposed to provide the right mood, which is reminiscent of Phillips’ Ambilight models. In view of the integrated microphone, LG could have also installed a suitable webcam to enable video conferencing without problems. Gamers will be happy about the variable refresh rate in the form of FreeSync Premium and Adaptive Sync. The OLED-typical strong contrasts are supposed to be even better with the help of the HDR standard Dolby Vision.
Price and availability
The South Koreans seem to have a hot iron in the fire with the LG Flex LX3. After all, the bendable design and the adjustable screen diagonal make the TV an egg-laying pillow. Unfortunately, LG does not yet reveal the price and availability of the beauty.
