Today, Corsair introduced the first ever flexible OLED gaming monitor to the public. A company better known for its gaming mice and keyboards has announced the release of a gaming monitor unlike any seen before.
The new Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 from Corsair is an OLED display powered by a panel from LG Display's line of high-end monitors. Corsair plans to take full advantage of the flexible functionality that OLED technology provides. The Xeneon Flex can be changed from completely flat (ideal for strategy and productivity software) to an 800R curve (for shooters, sims, and movies).
Although the panel's release date, price, and complete set of specifications are unknown at this time, this is your one-stop shop for all things Xeneon Flex-related. As new information becomes available, we will post it here.
What Is The Price Of The Corsair Xeneon Flex?
When compared to other OLED gaming monitors on the market, the Corsair Flex seems expensive with a suggested retail price of around $1,000. As a matter of fact, Flex, with its unique foldable functionality, may be one of the most costly gaming monitors available.
On the other hand, it seems to be launching with a 1440p screen resolution, which will significantly lower its price, especially when compared to most other OLED gaming monitors, which operate at 4K.
Corsair Xeneon Expected Features
The good news is that we have a wealth of data concerning Corsair Flex's technical specs. The Flex, it has been confirmed, will feature an LG Display W-OLED screen, which provides excellent color accuracy, deep blacks, and an infinite contrast ratio.
The screen size is an absurd 45 inches, and the resolution is 3,440 by 1,440. (21:9 aspect ratio). The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so to speak, and a review sample is anticipated in the WPC studio by the end of 2022, so we'll find out then if that's actually enough for a 45-inch display.
Bend the rules.
The XENEON FLEX is the world's first 45" 21:9 bendable OLED gaming display with 0.03ms response rate and 240Hz refresh rate
Long-term use of this display will be less taxing on the eyes thanks to LG Displays' Low Blue Light technology. The monitor has a peak brightness of 1000 nits, which is excellent for an OLED display, however, the continuous brightness will be significantly lower.
This monitor's OLED technology promises an extremely fast 0.03ms GTG reaction time and an equally excellent 240Hz refresh rate, making it a fantastic option for competitive gamers. If the Xeneon is anything like the PG42UQ, it will allow customers to adjust the screen size between 24, 27, and 34 inches.
At 800R, the Corsair Xeneon Flex will be even more intense than Samsung's highest-end Odyssey gaming monitors, which are rated for a maximum of 1000R. The majority of modern monitors go for a more forgiving 1800R curve, however, Corsair has chosen not to do so with the Flex.
This new panel is anticipated to be G-Sync and FreeSync compatible and to include a plethora of fundamental features that put a premium on minimizing burn-in and preserving images. Once we have the full specifications, we will post them here.
