Between LG and Samsung, there are some fascinating gaming monitors hitting the market this year and now LG is exciting the industry with its latest release. Which is the new 48-inch UltraGear 4K OLED gaming monitor (model 48GQ900). A beast of a screen that comes packed with features that any dedicated gamer would love.
For one, a 48-inch gaming monitor is huge. Making for quite the gaming rig. Especially, if you have more than one in your setup. Then you have the fact that it is 4K OLED with VRR (variable refresh rate). So it should look fantastic while reducing frame tearing and jitter.
It also offers a native refresh rate of 120Hz, which can be overclocked to 138Hz. As well as Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium support, 0.1ms response time, HDMI 2.1, DTS Headphone:X support via a 4-pole headphone connection, and did we mention OLED?
There is no doubt that this will look amazing and we can’t wait to test one ourselves (hopefully, sooner than later). However, there will still be a wait as it will only be available in Japan, for now. It will be launching this month in Japan and then will continue to roll into North America, Europe, and Asia markets sometime in the future. LG doesn’t mention how long the rest of us (outside of Japan) have to wait exactly.
When the time comes, it should pop up under LG’s UltraGear page. Where all of the UltraGear models can be found. Including a few 32-inch IPS models that follow the same release schedule.
