OLED Monitors In 2023: The Current Market Status

Check out the current state of OLED monitors as well as everything you need to know about the OLED technology in this ultimate, updated guide.

OLED displays don’t rely on a backlight to produce an image, which allows them to generate true blacks for a basically infinite contrast ratio.

Moreover, they have an instantaneous pixel response time speed for minimal motion blur in fast-paced games.

There are already numerous OLED TVs available that take full advantage of the points mentioned above, but what about OLED monitors?

In this article, we’ll keep you posted about everything related to OLED monitors, including potential release dates or any market status updates.

You can also check out our dedicated New Monitors article to check on the upcoming Mini LED and other displays.

Best OLED Gaming Monitors

If you’re looking for an OLED monitor for gaming, there are quite a few options to choose from nowadays!

The Pros:

  • Wide color gamut
  • Low input lag, quick response time
  • Plenty of features including VRR up to 138Hz
  • Rich connectivity options, including HDMI 2.1

The Cons:

  • Too big for regular desktop use for most users
  • Expensive (especially in comparison to the LG OLED42C2)

About The Monitor

The ASUS PG42UQ is one of the best displays based on LG’s W-OLED panel thanks to its 42″ screen size that’s much more usable for desktop use than the 48″ models and its heatsink implementation, which allows for higher brightness.

Image Quality

4K UHD resolution looks sharp even on a 42″ sized screen! You get roughly 106 pixels per inch.

The monitor also has a decent peak brightness of ~800-nits for HDR content, while the brightness under SDR amounts goes up to 200-nits for a 100% white window.

10-bit color depth is supported without dithering and you get a wide 98% DCI-P3 color space coverage. An sRGB mode is also provided for an accurate representation of sRGB content.

All in all, you get an incredible image quality with true blacks, vivid colors and crisp details.

While the PG42UQ doesn’t get as bright as some high-end LED-backlit screens, its decent peak brightness, infinite contrast ratio and lack of backlight bleed more than make up for it and offer an overall more immersive viewing experience, especially in dark rooms.

freesync and gsync

While the risk of burn-in can take away from the otherwise amazing image quality of OLED, the display’s performance is uncompromising.

To start with, you get imperceptibly low input lag, so there’s no delay between your actions and the result on the screen.

Further, the pixel response time speed is faster than that of any LED monitor; it’s instantaneous, making for a ghosting-free gaming experience.

Next, the monitor features variable refresh rate (VRR) with FreeSync Premium, G-SYNC Compatible and HDMI 2.1 Forum VRR support for tear-free gameplay up to 120FPS with a 40-120Hz range.

Design & Connectivity

ASUS ROG Swift PG42UQ Review

The stand of the monitor is sturdy and offers +/- 5° tilt adjustment. You can also mount the screen via the 300x300mm VESA pattern.

Unlike LG’s OLED42C2 TV, which has a glossy screen surface, the ASUS PG42UQ has a matte anti-glare coating that’s better at mitigating glare, but the image isn’t quite as vivid in a dark room (the C2 is more reflective under direct lighting though).

Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, two HDMI 2.1 inputs, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a headphone jack, a digital audio line-out port and a quad-USB 3.0 hub.


As it’s based on the same panel, the LG OLED42C2 is also worth considering. It has a glossy screen surface and a bit lower brightness, so it’s better suited for dark rooms. Further, it has built-in smart TV features and Dolby Vision support. Most importantly, the 42C2 can be found for as low as $850, while the PG42UQ goes for ~$1400.

Philips also announced a monitor based on the same panel, the Philips Evnia 42M2N8900 with USB-C 90W PD and a more ergonomic stand. It’s available for $1,400. There’s also the KTC G42P5 version with USB-C 90W PD, KVM and a matte anti-glare coating (35% haze).

48″ OLED Displays

Want a larger 48″ OLED display? Below you’ll find a list of all available models. However, in this case, we recommend considering LG’s C1 and C2 TVs as well, the OLED48C1, for instance, can be found for as low as $800 on sale.

LG OLED Flex LX3 – 42″ Bendable OLED Display
LG OLED Flex LX3 Monitor

The 42″ 4K 120Hz bendable OLED screen, the Flex LX3, can bend from flat to a steep 900R curvature with 20 levels in between.

Noteworthy features include Adaptive-Sync support (FreeSync Premium, G-SYNC Compatible), matte anti-glare screen coating, a built-in microphone, dual 40W integrated speakers, Dolby Atmos and RGB lighting that synchronizes with on-screen video/audio.

The screen can be bent manually or via the provided remote controller, while the stand offers height adjustment up to 140mm and -5°/10° tilt.

Panel-related specifications, such as peak brightness and color gamut aren’t revealed, but we assume they will be similar to that of the 42″ C2 TV.

The LG 42LX3QPUA 42″ 4K 120Hz bendable OLED display is now available on LG’s website.

The Pros:

  • Wide color gamut
  • Low input lag, quick response time
  • Plenty of features including VRR up to 165Hz
  • Ergonomic design, USB hub
  • 3-year warranty that covers burn-in

The Cons:

  • No MBR

About The Monitor

The Dell Alienware AW3423DWF is based on Samsung’s OLED panel that’s enhanced with quantum dots (QD-OLED), which improves upon various aspects of LG’s OLED.

Image Quality

To start with, the AW3423DWF boasts a wide 99.3% DCI-P3 color gamut in comparison to the 98% DCI-P3 coverage of the PG42UQ.

So, you get more vibrant and saturated colors! You’ll also find dedicated sRGB and DCI-P3 color modes with adjustable brightness and gamma.

Next, the Dell AW3423DWF is also brighter. It’s capable of reaching a higher 1,000-nit peak brightness and it can sustain over 250-nits (as opposed to 200-nits of the PG42UQ) with a 100% white window

The overall perceived brightness is also higher due to more saturated colors.

Just like every OLED, the AW3423DWF has an infinite contrast ratio, instantaneous response time speed and wide viewing angles with consistent colors.

Another advantage of QD-OLED technology is better burn-in resistance; Dell even offers a three-year warranty that covers burn-in.

While the 3440×1440 resolution is lower than 4K UHD, it actually provides a higher pixel density on 34″ sized displays at roughly 110 PPI (pixels per inch), in comparison to 92 PPI of 48″ 4K and 106 PPI of 42″ 4K displays.

So, you’ll get sharper details, as well as an extended horizontal field of view due to the ultrawide resolution. Unlike LG’s OLED panels that use WRGB subpixel layout, QD-OLEDs have regular RGB subpixels, but in a triangular layout, so there’s still some minor fringing on small text that can be alleviated via ClearType.

Moving on, the Dell AW3423DWF has a high 165Hz refresh rate and VRR support for tear-free gameplay. Sadly, it doesn’t support backlight strobing.

You can learn more about the monitor in our full review.

Design & Connectivity

Dell AW3423DWF Review

The stand of the monitor is sturdy and offers height adjustment up to 110mm, -5°/21° tilt, +/- 20° swivel, +/- 5° pivot and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include two DisplayPort 1.4 inputs, HDMI 2.0 (max 100Hz), a headphone jack, line-out and a quad-USB 3.0 hub.


There’s also the Dell AW3423DW variant with a dedicated G-SYNC model and a 175Hz refresh rate, but it’s $200 more expensive and lacks some features.

Samsung, MSI and Philips announced their models (without G-SYNC module) based on the same panel:


ASUS also announced the PG34WCDM 34″ 3440×1440 240Hz based on LG’s W-OLED panel with a steep 800R screen curvature and improved HDR brightness performance of 1300-nits peak for 3% window size and 650-nits for 10%.

Unlike the PG32UCDM, the PG34WCM uses a W-OLED panel and has a lower pixel density, so text fringing will still be an issue. Moreover, it uses a matte anti-glare coating that’s great at preventing reflections but adds graininess to the image.

The monitor also features a heatsink, HDR-400 True Black certification and VRR support (FreeSync Premium Pro, G-SYNC Compatible, HDMI 2.1 VRR).

Connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, USB-C and built-in KVM.

The release date could be as soon as Q1 2024, but there’s no word on pricing yet.

The Pros:

  • Wide color gamut
  • Low input lag, quick response time
  • Plenty of features including VRR up to 240Hz
  • Ergonomic design, USB hub

The Cons:

  • No MBR

About The Monitor

The ASUS PG27AQDM is a 27″ 1440p 240Hz HDR gaming monitor based on a W-OLED panel with a wide 98.5% DCI-P3 color gamut.

This is the combination of specs many gamers have been waiting for, and while some users might have preferred a 4K model, 1440p will still look rather sharp and crisp on the monitor’s 26.5″ viewable screen with 110.8 PPI (pixels per inch).

Thanks to its integrated heatsink, the PG27AQDM also has an excellent peak brightness of 250-nits for a 100% white window in SDR and up to 900-nits for small HDR highlights.

Another advantage of 1440p is that it’s significantly less demanding to drive than 4K UHD, allowing you to maintain higher frame rates, while the difference in image quality between the two resolutions is not that noticeable in games and videos.

Naturally, there is still a discernable difference when it comes to text and detail clarity in other applications though.

Check out our full ASUS PG27AQDM review for more information.

Design & Connectivity

ASUS PG27AQDM Monitor Design

Next, the ASUS PG27AQDM monitor features a slim design with full ergonomic support, matte anti-glare coating and rich connectivity options with two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, a headphone jack and a dual-USB 3.0 hub.



The LG 27GR95QE uses the same W-OLED panel, but it has a ~30% lower brightness. However, it has HDMI 2.1 ports, hardware calibration support and comes with a remote controller. Check out our full LG 27GR95QE review for more information.

Acer Predator X27U
Acer Predator X27U

Acer will release a model too, the Predator X27U with a KVM and USB-C port (90W Power Delivery, DP Alt Mode not confirmed).

It will be available in Q2 2023 for $1100.

Corsair Xeneon 27QHD240 OLED
Corsair Xeneon 27QHD240 OLED

Corsair revealed their monitor based on the popular 27″ 1440p 240Hz W-OLED panel with the same key specifications.

The Xeneon 27QHD240 OLED model also boasts a fully ergonomic stand with rich connectivity options, including two HDMI 2.1 ports, DP 1.4, USB-C (with DP Alt Mode, 65W PD), a quad-USB hub and a headphone jack.

Unlike other manufacturers, Corsair also clearly states a 3-year warranty that covers burn-in. It’s available for $1,000.


AOC also has a model in the works that uses LG’s 1440p 240Hz W-OLED panel, the AGON Pro AG276QZD. The monitor features a fully ergonomic stand and decent connectivity options with two DP 1.4 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a dual-USB 3.0 hub, a headphone jack and dual 5W integrated speakers.

No word on pricing and availability yet.


At Gamescom, ASUS revealed the ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM based on a 31.5″ 4K 240Hz QD-OLED panel by Samsung.

Besides the infinite contrast ratio and instantaneous pixel response time, the monitor also offers a high peak brightness of up to 1000-nits for 3% highlights in HDR and 250-nits for a full-white field in both HDR and SDR with Uniform Brightness enabled.

The second-gen Samsung QD-OLED panel also uses a slightly different subpixel layout for better text clarity, which will in addition to the display’s high pixel density minimize text fringing associated with these panels. It also has a semi-glossy screen finish for clearer image quality in comparison to matte coatings.

Just like the ASUS PG27AQDM, it will feature a heatsink instead of a fan for cooling.

Connectivity options include DP 1.4 with DSC, HDMI 2.1, USB-C, a dual-USB hub, a headphone jack and SPDIF audio. VRR is also supported via HDMI 2.1 VRR, FreeSync Premium and G-SYNC Compatible. It’s also HDR-400 True Black certified.

The release date could be as soon as Q1 2024, but there’s no word on pricing yet.

Eve / Dough Spectrum ES07E2D
Dough Spectrum ES07E2D

Unlike the LG 27GR95QE and the ASUS PG27AQDM with matte anti-glare screen coatings, the Dough Spectrum ES07E2D will feature a glossy screen surface for a more vivid (but also more reflective) image quality.

However, we’d like to warn you about purchased Dough / Eve monitors that were never shipped to users and unpaid refunds. Plenty of their customers reported not receiving monitors or refunds even for the old 2020 Spectrum models.

The ES07E2D is available for pre-order for $650, so if you want to take the risk, that’s up to you, but you should definitely check out the experiences of their users first, on their own forum and elsewhere.

ES07E3F & ES07E3D
Dough ES07E3D

Dough also announced two 31.5″ 4K 240Hz OLED Spectrum Black monitors, the ES07E3D with a glossy screen surface and the ES07E3F model with a matte anti-glare coating.

Other specifications include instantaneous response time, infinite contrast ratio, 150-nits full-field white and 450-nits peak brightness for SDR, 1000-nits peak for 3% white window in HDR, 98.5% DCI-P3 gamut coverage and Delta E < 1 factory calibration.

It will also feature VRR and BFI (Black Frame Insertion) support. Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.1 ports, DP 1.4 with DSC, USB-C with DP Alt Mode and 100W PD, two USB-C data ports, two USB-A ports, a headphone jack and built-in KVM functionality, while the ultra-thin design offers full ergonomic support.

The monitor also features Gorilla Glass with the DXC Anti-Reflective treatment for better reflection handling, support for pixel-perfect integer scaling and a 3-year warranty (2-year warranty for burn-in, zero bright dot pixel policy).

You will be able to pre-order the ES07E3F for $700 and the ES07E3D for $800, while the full price will be $1100 and $1300, respectively. It will most likely be available in Q3 2024.

It’s unclear if Dough will be using Samsung’s or LG’s 31.5″ 4K 240Hz panel, though they are not advertising the DFR (Dynamic Frequency and Resolution) feature of the LG panel that allows for 1080p 480Hz.

Again, check the links above about previous Eve / Dough users not receiving refunds and getting delayed shipping before deciding to pre-order. Note that we’ll most likely be seeing this panel in monitors by other manufacturers around the same time, though probably not as feature-packed and without the glossy option. Either way, we only recommend considering buying these Dough monitors once they’re available on Amazon, Newegg and other retailers.

Other 27″ – 32″ 4K High Refresh Rate OLED Displays

There are rumors that Samsung is considering a 27″ QD-OLED panel, but there’s no other information currently available.

Also, LG announced that they’re working on a 20″ OLED panel. No word on pricing, availability or other features, sadly.

Moreover, AU Optronics plans to develop 32″ 4K 144Hz and 32″ 8K 120Hz OLED panels, but again, there’s no other information available than that.

The Pros:

  • Wide color gamut
  • Low input lag, quick response time
  • Plenty of features including VRR up to 240Hz
  • Bendable screen, USB hub
  • 3-year warranty that covers burn-in

The Cons:

  • No MBR
  • Low pixel density
  • Tilt-only stand, not VESA mount compatible
  • Expensive

About The Monitor

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is a 45″ ultrawide bendable OLED display with a 3440×1440 resolution, variable refresh rate support (FreeSync Premium Pro, G-SYNC Compatible, HDMI 2.1 VRR) and a 240Hz refresh rate!

It’s based on LG’s W-OLED panel and can be bent between 800R to completely flat.

Other specifications include instantaneous pixel response time and infinite contrast ratio thanks to the OLED panel, as well as a high 1,000-nit peak brightness for HDR highlights and 160-nits for 100% SDR white window, and a wide 98.5% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage.

The 3440×1440 resolution on a 45″ screen size results in a pixel density of 83 PPI (similar to that of 27″ 1920×1080 displays), which won’t appeal to many users.

However, given the screen size and the distance you’d be away from the screen, it should be just fine for gaming and content consumption. In fact, at a distance of 41″ (104cm), the individual pixels won’t be noticeable.

It also offers a three-year warranty for burn-in and dead pixels.

Design & Connectivity

Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD Monitor Design

The screen measures 41.36″ (~105cm) in width and 17.73″ (~45cm) in height, equivalent to a 36″ 16:9 screen with ~32% extra width. It has a matte anti-glare coating. Sadly, the stand is tilt-only and not VESA mount compatible, but Corsair plans to release a mounting accessory in Q1 2023.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, two USB-C ports, (one with DP Alt Mode and 30W PD, and the other for the USB hub), four downstream USB-A ports and a headphone jack.


LG UltraGear 45GR95QE

The LG UltraGear 45GR95QE is based on the same panel as the Corsari Flex but with a fixed 800R curvature. Other panel-related specifications are the same except that LG’s model goes for $1700 and has an ergonomic stand, but its 2-year warranty doesn’t cover burn-in.

Check out our LG 45GR95QE review for more information.

Acer Predator X45
Acer Predator X45

Acer will also release a 45″ 3440×1440 240Hz OLED monitor, the Predator X45 based on the same panel with a fixed 800R curvature. It’s now available for $1700.

Unlike LG’s and Corsair’s models, the X45 has a USB-C with DP Alt Mode and 90W PD as well as built-in KVM functionality. However, keep in mind that Acer’s X27U 1440p 240Hz OLED model doesn’t have a Uniform Brightness feature, so it’s possible the X45 is missing it too. See our PG27AQDM review to see why that’s important.

MSI Project 491C
MSI Project 491C

MSI announced the Project 491C. It’s a 49″ super-ultrawide curved gaming monitor based on a QD-OLED panel with a 240Hz refresh rate.

More information to come!

Samsung Odyssey OLED G9

The Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC) is a 49″ 5120×1440 240Hz super-ultrawide curved (1800R) gaming monitor based on a QD-OLED panel.

The monitor will also feature Samsung’s Smart Hub for streaming services, DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification and VRR support (AMD FreeSync Premium Pro).

Connectivity options include DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, micro HDMI 2.1, a dual USB-C hub and 5W built-in speakers, while the ultra-slim design includes tilt and height adjustments.

The Samsung OLED G9 G95SC is now available for $2,200. Check out our review.

Samsung will also release the G93SC variant without the built-in smart features in Q3 2023, but pricing is currently unknown.

Samsung QD OLED 2023 Panel Subpixel Layout

Early reviews show that the 49″ QD-OLED panel has a bit different subpixel shape, resulting in less text fringing and better clarity. It seems that the screen coating is also a bit different, while the brightness performance remains similar to the first gen QD-OLED panels (~250-nits full white, ~1000-nits peak for < 3% windows).

Philips will also release a monitor based on the same panel, the Philips Evnia 49M2C8900 with built-in KVM and USB-C (90W PD). The release date should be in September with a ~$2100 price tag.


ASUS introduced their first monitor with a QD-OLED panel, the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD. It features a 0.03ms response time speed, a 144Hz refresh rate, a 5120×1440 screen resolution, a 1,000-nit peak brightness, a 1800R screen curvature and an integrated heatsink for better burn-in resistance and higher brightness.

According to some reports, the monitor might also have a built-in KVM functionality and a USB-C port with 90W PD and DP Alt Mode (in addition to HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 ports).

Update: It will be available in Q4 2023 for ~1700€. You can already get the OLED G9 with the higher 240Hz resolution for a similar price.

Best Professional OLED Monitors

Looking for an OLED monitor for professional color-critical work? Here, you will find the best models available (and announced).

The Pros:

  • Wide color gamut
  • Low input lag, quick response time
  • Factory-calibrated

The Cons:

  • Expensive

About The Monitor

For most users, 48″ and even 42″ sized 16:9 displays are too big for regular desktop use, so they have to wait for smaller OLED monitors.

The LG 32EP950 and 27EP950 are the first OLED displays available in the more common desktop monitor form factor, but they’re aimed at professionals.

Image Quality

Both the 32EP950 and 27EP950 offer the same key specifications, performance and features – the main difference between them is in screen size and, therefore, pixel density or PPI (pixels per inch).

The 27″ model (EPM269Q017A) has a bit sharper image quality with 163 PPI, whereas the 32″ variant still offers a crisp image, but with less scaling necessary at 140 PPI.

Their main feature, besides the infinite contrast ratio, is the exceptional 99% Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 color gamut combined with professional-grade factory calibration, making them ideal for professional work involving all common color spaces.

The peak brightness amounts to 250-nits for SDR content, and ~540-nits for HDR; true 10-bit color depth is supported as well.


Due to their low 60Hz refresh rate and high $3,000 – $4,000 pricing, the monitors won’t really appeal to gamers.

Still, due to their excellent image quality, low input lag and instantaneous response time speed, games look and run great. However, variable refresh rate is not supported, so you’ll have to resort to V-Sync in order to prevent tearing.

Design & Connectivity

LG 32EP950 Monitor Design

The stand of the monitor is robust and versatile with up to 130mm height adjustment, 90° pivot, tilt and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility, but not swivel option.

Connectivity options include two DisplayPort 1.4 inputs, HDMI 2.0, USB-C (DP 1.4 Alt Mode, 90W PD), a headphone jack and a USB 3.0 hub (1 upstream + 3 downstream).


LG also plans to release the LG 27BP95E and LG 32BP95E variants with built-in colorimeters.

The ViewSonic VP32-OLED is another 32″ model, likely based on the same panel. It should be available in Q3 2022 for $5000.

The Philips 27E1N8900 is another 27″ 4K 60Hz monitor based on a slightly different and cheaper (~$1100) JOLED panel (EPM269Q014A).

Unlike LG’s model, it doesn’t support hardware calibration. Other specifications are basically identical, so we’ll have to wait for reviews for a proper comparison between the two panels.

ASUS also announced a 27″ 4K 60Hz OLED monitor, the ProArt PA27DCE. No word on pricing and release date though. It’s also unknown which JOLED panel it uses.

Further, LG released another 27″ 4K 60Hz OLED monitor, the LG 27EQ850, but it’s unknown which panel exactly it uses.

There’s the ViewSonic VX2722-4K-OLED monitor based on the EPM269Q00V JOLED panel. Specs include 109% Adobe RGB ‘coverage’ (most likely implies Adobe RGB gamut volume instead), 60Hz, DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification with 540-nits peak brightness, ergonomic stand, USB-C with 96W PD and DP Alt Mode, hardware calibration and PiP/PbP support. It’s available in China for ~$1216.

Additionally, ASUS has a model in the works based on the same panel as the 32EP950/32BP95E with an integrated calibrator as well, the ASUS ProArt PA32DC.

At CES 2023, ASUS revealed another OLED monitor, the ASUS ProArt PA32DCM with 32″ 4K 60Hz JOLED RGB panel, a 700-nit peak brightness, Thunderbolt 4, hardware calibration, 99% DCI-P3 gamut coverage and Delta E < 1 factory calibration.

Other OLED Monitors

If you’re not interested in any of the above-mentioned OLED displays, here you’ll find all the information about all other OLED monitors and announced panels. However, most of them are discontinued, overpriced, or have very little information available.

55″ 4K 120Hz OLED Gaming Monitors

55 inch 4K 120Hz OLED Monitors

You’ll be able to find 55″ 4K 120Hz OLED gaming monitors, including:

However, we don’t recommend these models as they’re terribly overpriced (~$3,000) and don’t even support HDR. You can get a 55″ OLED TV at half the price with better image quality and just as good performance.

32:9 UltraWide OLED Gaming Monitor

240Hz OLED UltraWide Gaming Monitor

BOE revealed a 32:9 ultrawide curved gaming monitor with an OLED panel. It boasts a 49″ 3840×1080 240Hz screen with a wide 95% DCI-P3 color gamut and a 500-nit peak brightness (150nits typical).

Sadly, we don’t have any other information about it, but we’ll update the article as soon as something comes up.

Burning Core

Burning Core OLED Monitor

Back in 2018, JOLED showcased a 21.6″ 1080p 144Hz OLED gaming display called the Burning Core, after the eSports team that helped develop the monitor.

At that time, they also mentioned that a 27″ 4K 60Hz OLED model is in the works, but there haven’t been any updates regarding neither monitor since.

Dell UP3017Q

Dell UP3017Q OLED Monitor

Another monitor worth mentioning is the discontinued Dell UP3017Q with a 30″ 4K 60Hz OLED panel, which was the very first OLED monitor available.

It boasted a wide color gamut with 100% Adobe RGB, 97.5% DCI-P3 and 85.8% Rec2020 coverage. However, it was very expensive at ~$3,500, it didn’t support HDR, and had a low 300-nit peak brightness.

Best Portable OLED Monitors

If you need a good portable monitor, you’re in luck. Most OLED monitors available today are, in fact, portable. So, you’ll at least have a somewhat decent selection in this category.

The Pros:

  • High pixel density
  • Wide color gamut
  • Precise factory-calibration

The Cons:

  • Expensive

About The Monitor

The ASUS ProArt PQ22UC was the second OLED monitor to be announced. It’s based on a JOLED panel by Sony and Panasonic.

4K UHD resolution on such a small display provides you with an incredible pixel density of 204 PPI (pixels per inch), which guarantees stunning detail clarity.

It also boasts a wide 99% DCI-P3 color gamut with true 10-bit depth, a 330-nit peak brightness, it’s factory-calibrated at Delta E ≤ 2, and supports HDR (HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision).

Other features include ASUS ProArt Calibration (hardware calibration) and 14-bit 3D LUT.

Design & Connectivity

ASUS PQ22UC Monitor Design

It comes with a foldable stand for desktop use, as well as a magnetic smart cover for easy transport. Connectivity options include two USB-C ports and mini-HDMI.


The main drawback of the PQ22UC is the $4,000 price tag. There’s one more 22″ 4K OLED monitor called the Eizo Foris Nova. However, there were only 500 units made and it’s sold out now.

The Pros:

  • High pixel density
  • Wide color gamut
  • Precise factory-calibration

The Cons:

  • None

About The Monitor

If you’re looking for a more affordable portable OLED monitor, you should check out the Innocn PU15-PRE.

In comparison to the ASUS PQ22UC, the PU15-PRE is based on a smaller 15.6″ screen, which results in an even higher pixel density of 282 PPI! So, the screen is smaller, but the details are sharper. It also has a higher 400-nit peak brightness.

The monitor has a wide color gamut with 100% DCI-P3 and ~99% Adobe RGB coverage. It’s factory-calibrated, so it’s ready for professional color-critical work right out of the box.

Design & Connectivity

Innocn PU15 PRE Monitor Design

The monitor comes with both a magnetic cover and a foldable stand, and it supports touch-screen (10-point touch).

Connectivity options include two USB C ports, mini-HDMI and dual integrated speakers.


Intehill also plans to release a 15.6″ 4K OLED portable monitor through Kickstarter, the YTH156KN.

The Xtendtouch Pro XT1610UO is another 15.6″ 4K OLED portable monitor with a wide 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and a higher 550-nit peak brightness, but it’s significantly more expensive (~$1,300).

About The Monitor

ASUS announced two portable OLED monitors with 1080p resolution, which should make them more affordable than the 4K models.

There’s the 13.3″ MQ13AH and the 15.6″ MQ16AH. On such small screens, even 1080p resolution results in a high pixel density of 166 PPI and 141 PPI, respectively.

Further, both models feature 10-bit color depth and a wide 100% DCI-P3 gamut coverage with Delta E < 2 factory calibration, as well as HDR10 support.

Design & Connectivity

ASUS MQ13AH Monitor Design

The ZenScreen OLED portable displays feature a smart magnetic case and a tripod socket, while connectivity options include three USB-C ports and mini-HDMI.


ViewSonic plans to release the ColorPro VP16-OLED, likely based on the same panel as the MQ16AH, while Innocn has three models available too:


That’s all the information regarding OLED monitors we have so far.

If something new comes up, we’ll update the article first thing, so feel free to visit us again, and hopefully, you’ll find more OLED monitors!
