At the Gamescom that is currently taking place, manufacturer Corsair presented a world first with the Xeneon Flex: the OLED screen functions as the first flexible gaming monitor.
Gamescom 2022 is in full swing and was able to come up with a first hardware highlight in the form of the Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240: Visually, the 45-incher looks like a conventional gaming monitor with an OLED display from LG, a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 pixels and a refresh rate of 240 Hertz. The monitor is also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD Freesync.
The special feature of the Corsair screen, however, is found on the sides of the display frame, each of which has a handle attached. With the help of these, it is possible to transform the panel from a regular screen into a curved display with a curvature of 800R.

For the latter, a classic, flat display is generally recommended in order to retain a full overview and, above all, a geometrically correct display of demanding applications.

Other manufacturers such as Samsung have already brought suitable models with foldable displays onto the market: This is how the current one uses it Galaxy Z Fold 4 a similar technique.
