Skyworth's bendable OLED TV is on display during CES 2023, alongside other TVs with tech such as mini-LED backlighting. The OEM is also demonstrating its own in-house OS as an alternative to the Google TV of its upcoming outdoor screen at the major Las Vegas conference.

As the "World's First Outdoor Google TV", this Skyworth device is of course part of its maker's CES 2023 expo. The OEM initially introduced the up-to-3,000-nit mini-LED device as the Clarus; however, it is apparently now to be known as the S1 on its imminent debut.

Nevertheless, it might be pushed aside as the star of this show by the W82 Transformable OLED TV. It is a device that integrates Skyworth OBM and "fish-scale" chassis technology to curve automatically; however, unlike the LG OLED FLEX, it has 65-inch SKUs and has different 1000R, 1500R and 2000R (or basically nearly flat) modes.

The 4K/240Hz panel is rated for 1,000 nits of "optimal" brighness, Dolby Vision and HDR10. It also has a "TrensAI EYE" pop-up camera with PTZ functionality, which allows it to twist through 30° from side to side and look up and down when it rises automatically from the top of the TV.

Skyworth has also brought its Q52 Mini LED TV, and G3B "QLED+" TVs to keep it company on the Las Vegas Convention Center show floor.

They are joined by the in-house Coolita OS, rated to support some customization, a free media library, cloud games and intelligent recommendations in "overseas markets".
