TCL CSOT (China Star Optoelectronics Technology) Co. Ltd. announced that it is developing the world's first 4K 240 Hz panel — a refresh rate that's never been seen in a 4K panel so far. TCL hasn't given out much information about the specifications of this monitor save for some promotional material in Chinese social media.
From what we know so far, the TCL display, called the 32" UD 240 Hz R800 Gaming Display, will offer a 1 ms response time and TCL's image compression algorithm. The image from the promotional material indicates that it is a curved screen. There's no other information available at the moment.
4K high refresh rate panels are still a niche segment. Though a good majority of 4K displays offer up to a 120 Hz refresh rate, newer monitors such as the MSI Optix MPG321UR, Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ, Acer Predator XB273K, etc. have been offering 4K 144 Hz with the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX even offering a mini-LED variant.
TCL often sells their gaming monitors to other OEMs for rebranding, so we can expect 4K 240 Hz offerings from major OEMs very soon.
