Stay Flexin’ With Corsair’s Flexable Xeneon OLED Gaming Monitor

The days of choosing between a flat or curved display are over, as Corsair unveils its most ambitious project to date – the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED gaming monitor. Pretty cool, huh? Bendable and foldable displays are all the rage in 2023 and even gaming monitors aren’t immune to the trend. Dubbed the “world’s first 45-inch 21:9 bendable OLED gaming monitor” it’s the result of a partnership between Corsair and LG, who manufactures the panel.

Boasting a resolution of 3440 x 1440 at 21:9 and a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits. The OLED panel looks gorgeous and does a great job of producing accurate colours and true blacks. We had the chance to go hands-on with this beast of a gaming monitor and you can check out our unboxing via the link below.

Expect a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1 and a blazing fast 240Hz refresh rate, which is further complemented by a 0.03ms GtG response time, and a near-instantaneous 0.01ms Pixel on/off time. Of course, you’ll need a PC powerful enough to take advantage of these features, but Corsair has you covered in that department as well.

The monitor offers a great overall viewing experience and even features Adaptive-Sync, HDR and wide gamut colour. The design of the Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED is somewhat minimalistic and subtle, with a traditional V-shaped mount to hold the display. However, the thing that will turn most heads is the impressive bendable OLED screen that can be switched to either flat or flex mode as and when needed.

As you can see from our video, bending the display means pressing the side buttons on each of the handles, which enables them to extend and lock in place. After that, you physically flex the display which takes a bit of strength.

You can use the monitor in either flat or curved mode and Corsair even states that the monitor delivers 20% more screen area when compared to a 49-inch ultrawide monitor. The brand recommends you adjust the curve of your screen from completely flat for MOBAs and strategy games to an immersive 800R for simulations and shooters, “The Xeneon Flex works with both NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium and includes a three-year Zero Burn in and Zero Dead Pixel Warranty for the OLED panel.”

In terms of connectivity, the monitor has a number of ports both in the front and back and even features HDMI 2.1 for faster connections.

All in all, Corsair’s Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 OLED gaming monitor is a brilliant piece of tech that refreshes the formula, turning a gimmicky feature into a useful one. The Flex 45WQHD240 OLED has a price tag of AUD$3,599 and is now available for purchase via the brand’s official online store linked below, alongside a number of partner retailers in Australia.
