LG Display is heading to CES 2022 with a set of concepts that take advantage of the flexibility of OLED displays. Among them is a personal media chair with an immersive 55″ screen and “Virtual Ride” which pairs a workout bike with displays that wrap vertically above the rider.
This new model of the Nintendo Switch offers the inky blacks, high contrast, and rich colors that OLED displays are known for. It has a slightly larger 7″ OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, enhanced audio, and a dock with a wired Ethernet port and 64GB of storage. The $349 system drops 10.8.2021 just in time for the holidays.
A volumetric display can show images that produce the illusion of depth. After maker Sean Hodgins got his hands on some see-through OLED displays, he designed and built a miniature display that can display a 3D image by spreading its components across its multiple layers. This thing looks straight out of science fiction.
Vizio is now the third major player to offer televisions with OLED displays. These super-slim 4K screens offer incredible black levels and rich colors, and support various HDR formats. They come in 55″ and 65″ versions, and pack Vizio SmartCast for viewing content from hundreds of free TV channels and streaming apps.
Cinera is working on a new head-mounted 5K display for immersive, private video viewing. Using tiny microOLED screens, it’s less cumbersome than other systems, and offers impressive contrast and color rendition. It has Dolby Digital 5.1 surround headphones, and adjustable diopters so you can wear it without glasses on.
Created to celebrate The Rise of Skywalker, unique Star Wars and Coca-Cola collectibles have one of two light-up lightsaber designs, both illuminated by a custom-cut, flexible OLED light source. Sadly, they’re only destined for Singapore at this point, with just 8000 bottles being randomly distributed to 45 secret locations.
Motorola’s classic Razr flip phone is back. It features a foldable 6.2″ OLED display in its center, offering up an Android 9 UI on a gadget that folds down to half its height in your pocket. It also has a 2.7″ “Quick View” display when closed. It’s not the most advanced phone, but it’s some really slick design work. Exclusive to Verizon.
Get a great deal on one of the best 4K TVs on the market. At half of its original price, the 55″ 2018 LG B8 offers up stellar colors, great contrast, and rich, inky blacks that only an OLED display can produce. It’s got support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG HDR formats, and LG’s excellent suite of Smart TV apps on board.
Let’s face it, soundbars are ugly. They look like an afterthought. Canvas takes a new approach, stacking your TV on top of a sleek modern stand that packs four speakers and 200 watts of amplification. Initially, it’s only compatible with LG OLED B and C series displays, which happen to be some of the best TVs you can buy.
Xiaomi co-founder and president Lin Bin teased the company’s prototype for an OLED phone that folds on both sides. This allows it to transition from a mini tablet to a smartphone with no bezels on the side. It’s certainly impressive, but its palm rejection better be on point.
One of designer Takao Inoue’s artistic goals is to capture fleeting moments and preserve them. His unique tabletop curiosity does just that, freezing a puffy dandelion about to release its seeds inside an acrylic block, illuminated in space with a smooth, OLED light source.
The latest displays from LG not only offer the bright colors, inky blacks, and slim profile OLED tech is known for, but these sets support the “next big thing” – high dynamic range capability – where contrast between the brightest and darkest areas is unlike anything you’ve seen.
