Earlier we reported on an OLED 27-inch gaming display from LG with a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The 2560 x 1440 resolution might seem low for such a small display, but it’s important to remember that we’re still in the early days of mini-OLED technology.
LG is also working on an ultra-wide OLED display. It has a slightly larger outline at 45 inches, but the resolution remains 3440×1440. It is an OLED panel with a 240 Hz refresh rate and a curved display (800R). LG advertises their WHQD monitor with a response time of 0.03 ms.
On December 12, you can start placing your pre-order for this monitor, which costs $1,699.99 according to the product website. LG expects to be able to deliver this monitor on December 28.
MSI SUPER ultra-wide OLED
It’s interesting to note that this is one of many OLED panels being unveiled today. MSI has announced Project 491C, a new super-ultrawide monitor with a QD-OLED 240Hz display, ahead of CES 2023. Name-wise, a 49-inch screen seems likely, but the actual size and resolution have yet to be verified.
MSI is not disclosing any further information. This display has been announced as a winner of a CES Innovation Award, but that’s all we know for sure.
The world’s FIRST super-ultra-wide curved gaming monitor, featuring a 240Hz QD-OLED panel, is here to ensure you enjoy a viewing experience far beyond anything you’ve ever had. Get ready at CES2023 for the debut of our Project 491C. #MSIXCES2023 #InnovationAward pic.twitter.com/tbTC8ognaD
