LG Teases 3 New Gaming Monitors Including a 48-Inch 4K OLED Display – PCMag

If you’re in the market for a gaming monitor, LG is preparing to launch three new products, including a 47.5-inch OLED model.

The LG 48GQ900 is the company’s first OLED gaming monitor in its UltraGear brand. It was first announced in March, but LG said on Wednesday that the monitor will launch this month in Japan before arriving in North America and Europe. 

The LG 48GQ900 stands out for its large size and 4K screen resolution. It will also boast a 120Hz refresh rate, which can be overclocked to 138Hz. In addition, the monitor supports a 0.1-millisecond response time.

“Perfect for PC and console gaming, the new model offers the superb color reproduction and contrast of OLED and features LG’s anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating, which reduces visual distractions so that users can focus their attention fully on the gameplay,” LG said.

If the 48GQ900 is too big, the company is releasing two 31.5-inch monitors, which will also be arriving in Japan this month before a rollout in North America and Europe. 

The first, the LG UltraGear 32GQ950, also offers a 4K resolution but uses a Nano IPS display. The screen also supports a 144Hz refresh rate, which can be overclocked to 160Hz. 

“The Nano IPS 1ms gaming display is LG’s first 4K model to implement ATW Polarizer technology, which improves the panel’s ability to ensure lively, accurate colors and deep, dark blacks across a wide viewing angle,” the company said. It’s also been certified as a VESA Display HDR1000(Opens in a new window)
