LG launches 49WQ95C-W ultra-wide monitor

LG recently introduced a new ultra-wide monitor, the 49WQ95C-W, to give gamers who like super immersion a better gaming experience.

This 49-inch ultra-widescreen monitor has a resolution of 5120*1440, which can basically be regarded as combining two 2560*1440 monitors together into a 32:9 ratio. Generally speaking, monitors with this ratio will be curved, but because LG uses an IPS panel, therefore, although the entire display itself is a bit curved, the curvature should be very low, because only the sides of the display are slightly curved.

Since it is a monitor for gamers, the 49WQ95C-W is also equipped with a high refresh rate of 144Hz, which can give players a very smooth gaming experience. Of course, the premise is that the player’s graphics card must be able to drive this resolution and refresh rate. In addition, the 49WQ95C-W also supports G-Sync Compatible and FreeSync Premium, which can prevent screen tearing within a certain number of frames.

As for other specifications, LG 49WQ95C-W uses an IPS panel with 98% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage and 8-bit color depth, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and typical brightness of 400 nits. The screen has passed the useless VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, and LG says the monitor will be factory pre-calibrated.

In terms of interfaces, the display has 2 HDMI 2.0 interfaces (or HDMI 2.1 interfaces with very low bandwidth), 1 DP 1.4, and 1 USB Type-C interface that can be used to provide 90W charging power. It also has 1 USB Type-B upstream and 2 USB 2.0 Type-A downstream ports, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.

At present, LG has not given the price of this display, nor has it mentioned its launch date.
