LG is unveiling its latest monitors at IFA 2022 in Berlin, Germany, including the new UltraGear OLED gaming monitor (model 45GR95QE). LG’s first curved OLED display with a 240Hz refresh rate, the 45-inch model is designed for gamers who are looking to have an immersive gaming experience with its advanced specs and features. 

LG will be having a booth at IFA 2022 where the audience can explore a wide range of LG monitor products, including the new UltraGear and the UltraFine Display Ergo AI (model 32UQ890), which delivers a customizable setup for user comfort at home or at the office.

LG’s new gaming monitor has some impressive specs. In addition to being LG’s first 45-inch curved OLED gaming monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution, the 45GR95QE is also the company’s first display to combine a 45-inch screen-size with an 800R curvature; a pairing that helps boost users’ sense of immersion. The 45GR95QE will be displayed at IFA 2022 along with LG’s 48GQ900 UltraGear OLED gaming monitor.

Along with a 240Hz refresh rate and 0.1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time, the 45GR95QE provides 98.5 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, HDR10 performance and support for HDMI 2.1 – including features such as variable refresh rate (VRR) – and Display Port 1.4. Thanks to its large size, 21:9 aspect ratio, borderless design and 800R screen curvature, the new UltraGear helps transport users into their favorite PC or console games as few other monitors can. What’s more, it is also the ideal size for most desk setups and offers smooth multitasking with features such as Picture-by-Picture (PBP) and Picture-in-Picture (PIP). 

The UltraGear brand’s first curved OLED gaming monitor, the 45GR95QE delivers the same, OLED picture quality as its predecessor (model 48GQ900) while adding an 800R curvature and anti-glare and low reflection coating. LG has said that its OLED puts less strain on users’ eyes, which is helpful for those who enjoy losing themselves in long gaming sessions.

UltraFine Display Ergo AI

LG’s UltraFine display ergo AI is making its debut at IFA 2022. The monitor is the first LG monitor capable of automatically adjusting its position to ensure continued ergonomic comfort throughout the day. With a built-in camera, the UltraFine Display Ergo AI can continuously analyze the posture of the user – making subtle changes to screen height (0 ~ 160mm) and tilt (-20º ~ +20º) to prevent them from remaining in a single position for too long, or from falling into poor posture over time. The 32UQ890 has three ergonomics modes, AI motion, continuous motion and periodic motion. AI motion, which will be demonstrated at LG’s booth during IFA, tracks the user’s eye level and adjusts height and tilt whenever a change is detected. 

LG’s UltraFine display ergo AI sports a 31.5-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) IPS display with 95 percent coverage of DCI-P3 and support for HDR image reproduction.

LG’s exhibition booth (Hall 18, Messe Berlin) at IFA 2022 from September 2-6 will give visitors the opportunity to experience the company’s latest consumer electronics innovations, including its new display solutions for productivity (Ergo) and entertainment/gaming (UltraGear).
