Samsung has unveiled their first ever curved OLED TV at CES. Why curved? Well, Samsung says that the curved shape “provides depth to the content displayed for a more life-like viewing experience.” Additionally, the curved OLED TV is supposed to deliver an immersive panorama effect, which is obviously not possible with conventional flat-panel TVs.
Samsung also says that the curve shape of the TV contributes to a comfortable experience for the human eye, as the curved panel allows the distance between the user and TV screen to be the same from almost any angle. No word yet on when this curved OLED TV will make an appearance in our living rooms, but you can count on it being prohibitively expensive, judging from the initial prices of non-curved OLED TVs.
