LG Announce OLED Flex LX3 with 42″ Bendable OLED Panel, 4K and 120Hz

Share this content

LG have today announced their new OLED Flex LX3 monitor, another option in what seems to be a new trend of curved and bendable OLED screens. We saw last week the announcement of Corsair’s Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 monitor which was a 45″ ultrawide format with 240Hz. Now the new LG OLED Flex LX3 is 42″ in size, has a 16:9 aspect ratio, and isí basically a bendable, curved version of the existing LG 42C2 display. The screen can go from flat to a steep 900R curvature, letting users choose their ideal arc from twenty levels of curvature, for a truly personalized viewing experience.

LG OLED Flex LX3 Specs

Being an OLED screen the LX3 can offer basically infinite contrast ratio, perfect blacks, near-instant response times (0.1ms G2G quoted) and per pixel dimming for excellent HDR experience. Spec wise the screen is 42″ in size and has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This makes it a different option to the Corsair bendable OLED screen we saw announced last week that is 45″ in size, has a 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio and a lower pixel density and 3440 x 1440 resolution, but has a higher 240Hz refresh rate. The 4K 120Hz option here on the LG is the same as their C2 OLED display. The screen also supports adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems, carrying the NVIDOA ‘G-sync Compatible’ and AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ certifications as well. LG also talk about the screen having “low input lag” which hopefully means additional focus on reducing lag for gaming.

LG also talk about how the screen features their “super anti-reflection (SAR) coating” so like other monitor-orientated OLED screens of late, this one will have a matte coating of some sort as opposed to glossy.

Other features and functionality

The screen also support MultiView PiP options for multiple input viewing. There’s also some fancy connectivity options going on here – For maximum convenience, the Switching Hub function makes it possible to use the LG OLED Flex’s built-in microphone and any devices connected via its USB ports such as a headset, keyboard or mouse with a PC connected by HDMI cable. By pressing the source switching button on the side of the LX3’s stand, users can switch device connection back and forth between PC and LG OLED Flex without having to physically disconnect and reconnect anything. Additionally, the built-in mic provides effective echo-cancellation for crystal-clear voice chatting while gaming.

The LX3 also delivers excellent sound with two front-firing 40W speakers that help further elevate the gaming and content-viewing experience. And with built-in support for Dolby Atmos, the TV adds greater clarity, depth and liveliness to audio on compatible titles.

To complete the personalized user experience, LG OLED Flex incorporates a customizable lighting feature into its shield-like rear design. The LX3’s lighting enhances the atmosphere by synchronizing with the video or audio of the content playing on screen (available on some inputs apparently), offering five modes for users to choose from.

Bendable screen options and stand ergonomics

Users can quickly adjust the LX3’s curvature to one of two available presets using the dedicated button on the remote control or manually change the degree of curvature in five percent increments over 20 different levels. Additionally, the screen of LG OLED Flex can be tilted toward up to 10 degrees or away up to 5 degrees from the user and has a height-adjustable stand – up or down by 140 millimeters  guaranteeing ergonomic comfort for those who like to sit up, and those who like to lean back.

New LG Game App

The new Game app, which is exclusive to the LX3, supports custom screensavers, offers shortcuts to popular apps, such as Twitch and YouTube, and provides a list of connected external input devices, all on the same screen. Revamped for LG OLED Flex, LG’s Gaming Optimizer adds customized sound settings for specific game genres to its diverse range of gamer-centric picture and audio options. Its dedicated game sound settings menu includes an equalizer, switches for AI Game Sound and Dolby Atmos, and offers access to advanced audio settings, enabling users to tailor the gaming experience precisely how they want it.

Pricing and Availability

No word on this yet, but the LG Flex will be on display at IFA 2022 from 2 – 6 Sept in Berlin. More information on everything when we get it.
