Dual-screen devices, folding OLED tablets, curved vertical panels, and more are all on the horizon. This year’s CES may have been quieter and more polarising than previous years, but almost everyone had some strange displays to show off.
The Odyssey 55-inch gaming display from Samsung is curved for a more immersive gaming experience. It can, however, swivel 90 degrees to accommodate additional… spreadsheets and Slack channels? It can rotate and tilt thanks to the height-adjustable stand, allowing you to position it at the ideal viewing angle – which is especially crucial when you have a tall, curved screen.
Then there’s ASUS’ ZenBook 17 Fold, an OLED tablet with a keyboard on top of the lower half of the screen that can be used as a 12.5-inch laptop. You may stand the tablet up and use the keyboard separately if you want to use the complete 17-inch display. The graphics resemble heady idea devices from a few years ago – ASUS demonstrated this form factor as Project Precog in 2018 – yet this is a real gadget that will be available in shops. Hopefully, ASUS has learned from Lenovo and Microsoft‘s foldable experiments.
