LG might have two great new monitors on its hands. Its UltraGear OLED gaming monitor and ultrafine display Ergo AI are coming soon, and the brand will be on display at IFA 2022 in Berlin, Germany, in early September.
Both curved displays introduce new technologies to LG’s consumer lines and provide unique experiences for users. 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 able to adjust its position throughout the day with AI tracking to provide users with maximum ergonomic comfort.
LG describes the UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitor as ideal for immersive gaming. Apart from the 240Hz refresh rate, it is also the first 45-inch display to feature 800R curvature. Some distinctive highlights include a WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution for OLED monitors, a 21:9 aspect ratio, 0.1 millisecond gray-to-gray response time, 98.5% DCI-P3 color coverage, HDR10, and a variable refresh rate ( VRR).
The UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitor also features a borderless design and an anti-glare and low reflection coating to maintain viewing quality. As 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 intended as a home or office peripheral with a built-in AI camera that can analyze posture by tracking the user’s eyes and adjusting the display’s tilt and height accordingly. The tilt range is 40 degrees, while the height can be adjusted up to 160 millimeters. Consistent performance movement helps users not to stay in one position for long periods of time and prevent bad posture habits. Users can set the monitor to one of three modes for their ergonomic preference: AI Motion, Continuous Motion, or Periodic Motion.
Monitor specifications include a 31.5-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, an 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 that was released in June. This monitor features LG’s second generation Ergo Stand, with manual pivot, elevation, tilt and swivel movements, which allows the display to maximize ergonomic comfort for users.
Price 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 from September 2 to 6.
Until the UltraGear OLED gaming monitor launches, its closest competitor will be the 32-inch 240Hz Samsung Odyssey Neo G8, which has been available on the market since June, selling for $1,500.
