LG UltraGear 48GQ900: 48-inch gaming monitor announced with a WOLED panel, HDMI 2.1, 120 Hz support and a matte finish
LG has revealed the UltraGear 48GQ900, a monitor that leaked last week. Thought to be arriving in July, the company decided to showcase the UltraGear 48GQ900 at its LG Convention 2022 instead. However, the monitor will not be available until the second half of the year, so we suspect that July was actually its release date.
As expected, the UltraGear 48GQ900 is a 48-inch gaming monitor that relies on a 10-bit OLED panel. According to FlatpanelsHD, LG has settled on a WOLED panel instead of its newer OLED EX technology. Like LG's OLED TVs, the UltraGear 48GQ900 operates natively at 4K and 120 Hz, although 138 Hz could be a possibility. Additionally, the monitor will offer 1 ms GtG response times, 98.5% DCI P3 colour space coverage and an anti-glare coating, unlike equivalent LG OLED TVs.
Moreover, the UltraGear 48GQ900 will feature HDMI 2.1 ports and a DisplayPort connection. For reference, FlatpanelsHD understands that the monitor supports DisplayPort 1.4, not the newer DisplayPort 2.0 standard. Still, the gaming monitor will be compatible with current generation consoles through HDMI VRR and appears to have built-in speakers. Unfortunately, pricing remains unknown at this stage too.
