With a Curved Screen and a 240Hz Refresh Rate, LG’s New Gaming Monitor Helps
Create an Expansive and More Responsive Gaming Environment
SEOUL, May 10, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has launched its newest UltraGear gaming monitor (model 49GR85DC), a curved 49-inch display with a 32:9 aspect ratio and an ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate. Like having two 16:9 monitors side by side, the impressive new model delivers the silky-smooth gameplay and top-notch picture quality needed for immersive gaming experiences. While designed with gamers in mind, the 49GR85DC is also suitable for productivity or viewing content thanks to its advanced multitasking functionality and extra-wide screen.
Featuring a 49-inch Dual QHD (5,120 x 1,440) resolution panel with a 1000R curvature, LG’s new UltraGear gaming monitor provides sharp, vibrant images that fill the user’s field of vision. The combination of the monitor’s generous screen width and 240Hz refresh rate1 helps create an expansive and more responsive game environment – making titles feel more real and dynamic. VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, the 49GR85DC also has a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a 1000-nit peak brightness2, producing vivid colors and deep, nuanced blacks. With its three-sided, virtually borderless design, the monitor enables users to stay focused as they battle their opponents or explore their favorite virtual worlds.
Not just for gaming, the 49GR85DC offers an array of multitasking features that let users take full advantage of its elongated 32:9 aspect ratio screen. The new UltraGear supports Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP) modes. PIP mode lets users display content from a second connected device in a floating window, while PBP mode allows them to work with multiple open windows at the same time by conveniently dividing the screen into two discrete sections.
Important for users who enjoy PC and console gaming – and useful for multitasking as well – the new monitor provides connectivity via DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1, both of which let users enjoy smooth gaming at 240Hz in Dual QHD resolution. Additionally, the curved UltraGear enhances the gaming experience with its LED Hexagon backlighting and support for DTS Headphone:X; an advanced audio solution that provides outstanding three-dimensional sound via wired headphones.
“As the gaming monitor market continues to mature and grow, so too does the demand for expansive displays offering high refresh rates and superb picture quality,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Designed for gaming, but equally suited to multitasking, the new LG UltraGear is a versatile, premium display solution that shows our commitment and ability to satisfy the diverse needs of today’s consumers.”
Now available in the U.S., the new UltraGear gaming monitor will be launched in key markets throughout Europe this month and in Asia later this year.

Good Morning, There is a recommended minimum distance between the TV and the viewer. I bought an LG OLED C155 last month and it is uncomfortable from a distance. It was my mistake. I bought it without worrying about visual comfort. Is it possible to reduce the screen's usable area to simulate a screen size TV of 48 inches or less, accepting the black borders that would be created? It would be something similar to a custom aspect ratio. The idea would be to be able to simulate a smaller screen size than the purchased equipment. other-bigger->65->55->48->other-less
LG already makes some of the best monitors in the game for both productivity and gaming, especially that insane one that dynamically bends. It also makes some of the best televisions on the market — so much so that a lot of other television companies use an LG panel on their own models.
Today, LG is adding a new monitor to its lineup that looks to become not only your office’s monitor, but its television, too.
As reported by HomeKit News, the company has announced the LG Smart Monitor. The monitor, which exists under model number 32SQ780S, features a 32-inch 4K display and WebOS, the company’s operating platform that is usually found in its televisions. When you’re done using the monitor for work, WebOS will allow you to access all of the streaming services so you can watch movies and shows.
Now the company has released the LG Smart Monitor (model no. 32SQ780S) that not only also offers 4K screen resolution but includes AirPlay 2, like its predecessor, alongside WebOS. The screen size has also been bumped up from 27″ in the aforementioned ‘stand’ model, to a 32″ display. Whilst it’s ostensibly a monitor that would end up being used with a personal computer, it can be used as a regular 4K TV.
In addition to being a good base monitor for work and entertainment, it also comes with HDMI, USB-A, and even USB-C, so you can hook almost anything up to it.
The monitor comes complete with not only 2 HDMI ports – one of which eARC/ARC functionality – but also offers both three USB-A ports (one on the underside, two on the side of the monitor) and a USB-C port. Finally, it also provides hardwired connectivity, via an RJ45 port if you prefer not to use WiFi.
The monitor even comes packed with two five-watt stereo speakers, an integrated stand that’s made to attach to a desk, and that’s also able to rotate vertically. The only thing it feels like it doesn’t have is a built-in camera.
Details on its refresh rate have not been listed on its Amazon product page, but one thing it is likely not for is gaming as, with all of the productivity-focused features, the refresh rate is likely to sit at 60Hz.
Still, at $499, it is an incredible option for people looking to have a screen great for both productivity and entertainment. It could certainly end up on our list of the Best Computer Monitors of 2022.
