Corsair has partnered up with LG Display for the new Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240, utilizing one of the brand’s high-performance OLED panels. Due to the nature of OLED technology, it will offer up bendable functionality – something Corsair will be taking full advantage of.

Users will be able to adjust the Xeneon Flex between fully flat (for strategy and productivity applications) and 800R curved (for shooters, sims, and movies).

Most monitors in today’s market opt for a more relaxed 1800R curve, however, Corsair has decided against this with the new Flex.

While little information is known right now regarding the panel’s release date, pricing, and full specs list, consider this your one-stop-shop for everything Xeneon Flex related.

We’ll be making regular updates as and when they’re announced.

Corsair Xeneon Flex release date prediction

At the time of writing this, it doesn’t look like the Corsair Xeneon Flex will launch in 2022.

According to the official newsroom post on corsair’s site, further information regarding “launch, availability and final specifications coming later in 2022.”.

Like always, we’ll be keeping this page bang up to date with all the latest updates regarding the new Flex monitor so you don’t miss a thing.

How much will the Corsair Xeneon Flex cost?
If we look at some of the market’s other OLED gaming monitors, it’s hard to see the Corsair Flex retail for under $1,000.

In fact, thanks to the Flex’s new foldable functionality, it could be one of the market’s most expensive gaming monitors.

That being said, it looks set to launch with a 1440p screen resolution which will reduce its price quite considerably – especially when most other OLED gaming monitors run at 4K.

Corsair Xeneon expected specifications

According to official reports, the Flex will utilize an LG Display W-OLED display, offering up stunning picture quality, perfect blacks, and infinite contrast ratio.

It will sit at an eye-watering 45 inches and will feature a 3,440 x 1,440 screen resolution (21:9 aspect ratio). While that does seem a little lacking for a 45-inch screen, the proof will be in the pudding – with a review sample expected in the WePC studio before the end of 2022.

LG Displays will be also be utilizing some of its features on this monitor, including Low Blue Light technology to reduce eye strain over long periods of time.

Despite being OLED, users can expect an impressive 1000 nit peak brightness from the monitor – with sustained brightness much lower.

A rapid 0.03ms GTG response time is expected from the OLED technology in this screen, alongside an equally impressive 240Hz refresh rate – making it a great choice for competitive gamers.

Hopefully, the Xeneon will feature some kind of customizable aspect ratio (like the PG42UQ) – which allows users to resize the screen in 24, 27, and 34 inch variants.

G-Sync and FreeSync compatibility is expected for this new panel, alongside a tonne of core features that prioritize in reducing burn-in and image retention.

When a full specs list becomes available, we’ll update this page.

Corsair Xeneon Flex Vs Alienware AW342DW QD-OLED

Corsair could very well be going toe-to-toe with the Alienware AW3423DW when it finally launches, with both displays featuring similar 1440p curved panels.

However, that is where the similarities end.

The Xeneon Flex will feature OLED technology while the Alienware will offer QD-OLED tech – the latest arrival in display technology that sees the best qualities of both Quantum Dot and OLED merged.

What does this mean for performance? Well, it means the Alienware will feature a higher peak brightness, more accurate colors, and a wider color gamut.

That said, the Flex will offer up a more intense curve and better refresh rates for gaming.

Overall, it’s tough to separate these two panels – especially when you consider just how impressive they will both be.

It could all come down to price at the end of the day – and with the Corsair Flex featuring a bendable display, it could very well be much more expensive than it’s QD-OLED alternative.
