It is planned for next year, he added. “Producing a curved screen with liquid-crystal displays is doable but not if you want to flex those curves easily,” he said.

The sets planned for this year will be Ultra HD 65- and 77-inch curved models, with a standard HD 55-inch model. Pricing information will be announced at a later date.
