LG releases UltraGear 48GQ900 gaming monitor

LG recently announced a 48-inch OLED display that brings more options to gamers. The UltraGear 48GQ900 released this time is the first gaming monitor launched by LG to use an OLED panel.

As previously reported, LG’s UltraGear 48GQ900 is a 48-inch gaming monitor that uses an OLED panel with a 10-bit color depth. According to FlatpanelsHD, the OLED panel used by the UltraGear 48GQ900 is not the latest OLED EX panel, but the previous OLED panel, which may be the same as the panel of the CX series OLED TV. But in fact, there is nothing to worry about, because UltraGear 48GQ900 will also support 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, and the highest refresh rate may reach 138Hz. In addition, this monitor also has a 1ms response time (G-to-G) and 98.5% DCI-P3 color gamut. The GTG response time of OLED displays has always been very low, with an average of only about 0.5ms, so the UltraGear 48GQ900 standard 1ms response time (G-to-G) is no problem.

In terms of interfaces, UltraGear 48GQ900 will have HDMI 2.1 and DP interfaces. The HDMI 2.1 interface is well understood and is a necessary condition for 4K@120Hz plus VRR and HDR. As for the DP interface, FlatpanelsHD said that the UltraGear 48GQ900 uses the DP 1.4 interface instead of the new DP 2.0 interface, so if players connect to the DP interface, they can only play 4K@120Hz without HDR.

LG 48GQ900 will launch in the second half of 2022. Pricing, exact availability details, and full specifications will be announced later.
