LG’s new OLED gaming monitor boasts 240Hz refresh rate
LG might have two of the best new monitors in its hands. Its UltraGear OLED gaming monitor and UltraFine Display Ergo AI are coming soon, and the brand will be showcased at IFA 2022 in Berlin, Germany in early September.
Both curved screens introduce new technologies to LG’s consumer lines and deliver unique user experiences. The UltraGear OLED gaming monitor, model 45GR95QE, is the brand’s first OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the LG UltraFine Display Ergo AI, model 32UQ890, is capable of adjusting its position throughout throughout the day with AI tracking to provide users with maximum ergonomic comfort.
LG pitches the UltraGear OLED gaming monitor as ideal for immersive gaming. Along with a 240Hz refresh rate, it’s also the first 45-inch display to feature 800R curvature. Some spec highlights include WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution for the OLED monitor, 21:9 aspect ratio, 0.1 millisecond gray-to-gray response time, DCI-P3 color coverage of 98.5%, HDR10 and a variable refresh rate (RVR).
The UltraGear OLED gaming monitor also features a borderless design and anti-reflective, low-reflection coating to maintain display quality. For ports, the monitor includes HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4. It also supports picture by picture and picture in picture for productivity.
The UltraFine Display Ergo AI is designed as a home or office device with a built-in AI camera that can analyze a user’s posture by tracking their eyes and adjusting the tilt and height of the screen accordingly. The tilt has a range of 40 degrees, while the height can be adjusted by 160 millimeters. The constant display movement helps users avoid staying in one position for long periods of time and avoid bad posture habits. Users can set the monitor to one of three modes according to their ergonomic preferences: AI motion, continuous motion, or periodic motion.
Monitor specs include 31.5-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, IPS panel, 95% coverage of DCI-P3, and HDR.
The UltraFine Display Ergo AI is essentially a high-tech version of the LG DualUp monitor, which was released in June. This monitor features LG’s second-generation Ergo Stand, with manual swivel, height, tilt, and swivel movements, allowing the display to maximize users’ ergonomic comfort.
Pricing and availability details for the UltraGear OLED gaming monitor and UltraFine Display Ergo AI will likely be announced during or after IFA, which takes place September 2-6.
When the UltraGear OLED gaming monitor launches, its closest competitor will likely be the 32-inch 240Hz Samsung Odyssey Neo G8, which has been in the market since June for $1,500.
