LG slashes curved OLED to drive display tech

LG slashes curved OLED to drive display tech

LG is aiming to give curved OLED TVs a serious push into the living room, slashing the price of its first set as it tries to "significantly grow" demand for OLED in 2014. The LG 55EA9800, a 55-inch curved OLED Full HD TV, was announced back at CES 2013 and went on sale in the US in April last year, though at the fairly off-putting price of $14,999.95. Now, less than a year later, LG has trimmed that down by more than half.

LG G Flex ships from January 31 in US

LG's G Flex will go on sale in the US from January 31st, with the curved OLED smartphone unsurprisingly commanding top-tier pricing for its unusual form-factor. The smartphone, which we reviewed last month, will be a hefty $299.99 with a new, two-year agreement, though in return you get lengthy battery life - thanks to a specially-crafted curved battery - and a 13-megapixel camera.

LG’s curved 77-inch 4K OLED TV is absolutely stunning

One thing we’re seeing a lot of this year at CES is curved OLED TVs. LG’s offering is on display, and it’s absolutely stunning. Though LG and others are touting their monstrously large TVs, the somehow normal-sized-becuase-there-are-100-inch-TVs LG 77-inched is a favorite of ours. Simply jaw dropping, the display is easily the best we’ve seen yet.

Panasonic OLED 4K TVs, curved in more ways than one

AT CES 2014, Panasonic has some curved OLED TVs on display. Not interested? Seen that before? Maybe, but probably not like this. Rather than curve toward us, which Panasonic has as well, these turn away from you at the edges. That’s something we’ve not seen yet.

Samsung flexible TV headlines CES 2014 range: Eyes-on

Samsung hasn't shied away from technology here at CES 2014, bringing along not only huge curved Ultra HD OLED TVs but a bizarre flexing set that goes from flat to curved at the touch of a remote control. The new sets, which span all the way up to 105-inches, take on LG in the "huge and you can't afford it" stakes, just like the 105-inch curved monster LG demonstrated earlier today.

Sony and Panasonic OLED TV partnership dissolves

LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.

LG G Flex announced, claims self-healing properties

LG has officially released specs for G Flex, the company's long-rumored curved-screen smartphone. The phone is curved along the horizontal axis, features an unusual lockscreen with direct-to-app pinching, and in an homage to X-Men's Wolverine "self-heals" scratches in its outer casing. The phone joins Samsung's Galaxy Round among the first curved-screen smartphones that will reach consumers.

Samsung’s Galaxy Round is gimmicky not geekery

Samsung’s Galaxy Round is gimmicky not geekery

I love odd gadgets and weird technology. I like manufacturers that think at right-angles when it comes to designs and functionality. Yet Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Round, the Android smartphone with a curved AMOLED display like a techie taco, for all its new screen technology, leaves me cold. "Samsung's Galaxy Round is the epitome of in-fighting with LG" I tweeted last night. ""We got there first" and never mind if "there" is pointless." That prompted a discussion on how I could be enthusiastic about Samsung's Galaxy Gear, also derided by many in recent weeks, but not about the South Korean company's other more unusual designs. For me, it comes down to innovation versus excess.
