LG announces UltraGear 32GQ850, UltraGear 32GQ950 and UltraGear 48GQ900 availability in Europe
LG has finally announced when it will start selling its latest UltraGear monitors outside Japan. To recap, this year's LG UltraGear monitors have had a rather protracted road to market. For example, LG presented the UltraGear 32GQ950 in January, which offers a 160 Hz refresh rate and a 4K native resolution across its 32-inch panel. Subsequently, LG introduced the UltraGear 48GQ900 in March and waited until May before announcing the UltraGear 32GQ850.
Incidentally, LG only stated in May that the three gaming monitors would be available in North America, Europe and Asia but without providing a release date. Now, LG's German subdivision has confirmed that the monitors will launch next month in the Eurozone. For some reason, LG Germany has not announced how much any of its new UltraGear monitors will cost. Potentially, the company will only do so when it actually starts offering them.
For context, LG has assigned US$899.99, US$1,299 and US$1,499.99 MSRPs to the UltraGear 32GQ850, UltraGear 32GQ950 and UltraGear 48GQ900, respectively. However, LG is already offering substantial discounts on all UltraGear monitors in the US. Specifically, the UltraGear 32GQ850 now costs US$799, with the UltraGear 32GQ950 only US$200 more expensive at US$999. In comparison, LG sells the UltraGear 48GQ900 for US$1,299, price-matching the UltraGear 32GQ950's MSRP. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether these price cuts are permanent at this stage.
