LG has announced a new 45-inch ultrawide OLED gaming monitor with a refresh rate of 240Hz.
The company is calling the UltraGear 45GR95QE its “first curved OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate,” which is notable when most OLED displays (including those with flat panels) are still capped at 120Hz.
The company is yet to announce pricing or a release date for the monitor but plans to show it off at IFA in Berlin next month.
A higher refresh rate means a display appears smoother and less judder, and video games feel more responsive to play– especially when combined with OLED’s near-instantaneous response times.
Until recently, it was rare to find an OLED display with a refresh rate of over 120Hz, but that’s changed in recent months. Also Read, Clipboard History On iPhone How To get and copy or see it?

YouTube channel HDTVTest reported in May that Samsung’s S95B QD-OLED TV had become the first OLED TV to support a 144Hz refresh rate (albeit unofficially), while Alienware’s AW3423DW monitor, which also uses a QD-OLED panel from Samsung Display, goes all the way up to 175Hz.
However, we’re seeing OLED displays that go up to 240Hz. HDTVTest reported earlier this month that the MSI GE67 HX laptop features the world’s first 240Hz OLED display, and Razer has also announced a 240Hz OLED laptop of its own.
Just this week, we also saw Corsair announce a 240Hz OLED monitor, although the fact that it can be manually bent into a curved monitor stole some attention away from its high refresh rate. Also Read, Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max Leaked Details Specifications
Away from its refresh rate, the UltraGear 45GR95QE’s other specs include an aspect ratio of 21:9, a curvature of 800R, and the ability to display 98.5 of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
It’s got a 1440p resolution, an HDMI 2.1 port with support for variable refresh rates, and an additional DisplayPort 1.4 connector.
There are also built-in picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture modes for displaying content from multiple sources side-by-side.
While the refresh rates of OLED panels are improving, they still trail far behind what LCD is capable of.
LCD panels with 360Hz refresh rates are becoming increasingly common, and earlier this year, we saw the first 500Hz Nvidia G-Sync gaming display announced by Asus. Also Read, How To Download and Play The SIMS 4 on Chromebook?
The monitor’s aspect ratio and borderless design, combined with its 800R curvature, are supposed to make gamers feel genuinely in their game. LG even gave the screen an anti-glare and low-reflection coating to lessen the feeling of viewing the game on a screen.
If all these sound familiar, that’s because Corsair also just launched a 45-inch 1440p gaming monitor called Xenon Flex that it developed in partnership with LG.
Unlike this UltraGear model, though, that one has a bendable design that can go from straight to 800R in curvature.
In addition to its upcoming 45-inch curved display, LG has also showcased the UltraFine Display Ergo AI at IFA.
The 31.5-inch display has a built-in camera that monitors the user’s eye level and automatically adjusts its height and tilt so that the user doesn’t remain in a single position for a long time.
Unfortunately, LG didn’t reveal the monitors’ pricing and availability, so those interested have to wait for more information.
