We’re seeing huge 4K Ultra HD TVs and even bigger OLED TVs at CES 2014, but it looks like Samsung has keep one of the most exciting and interesting TV products to last.
They have just unveiled what they call the Samsung Bendable TV! Just as the name implys, it’s a TV with is bendable / flexible. By default it is a 85-inch LCD TV, which at the push of a button on the remote control, turns itself into a curved TV.
We’re glad that this rumored TV turned out to be real, as we posted about a possible flexible TV about a month ago.
Right now it is just a prototype, but if you remember from last year, LG said that their 55-inch curved OLED TV was a protoype, and less than 6 months later it was in the stores, so only time will tell. Right now we know that it has a 4K Ultra HD (UHD) resolution, and bends from a mechanical action.
Right now I feel that the manufacturers are torn between producing flat TVs and curved OLED TVs, so why not make one TV which can be both?
If anything it of course makes for a great tech demo, and we can’t wait to see it in action film it for you guys!
We’ll bring you more information as we get it and update with photos and video soon!
If you’re looking for a product which isn’t a prototype, Samsung also has a 105-inch curved LCD TV with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
Update: LG have just announced their 77-inch flexible 4K OLED TV also! While it’s smaller, it makes use of OLED technology.
