New AUO Monitors

AUO announced new displays featuring built-in ART (advanced reflectionless technology) for improved reflection handling, including a 27″ 1440p 300Hz gaming display with ‘1ms latency’ and a 32″ 8K professional editing display.

We have yet to see more information regarding panel type, release date, pricing, and other specifications. We’ll update the article as soon as something new comes up. In the meantime, you can check out AUO’s page for additional information.

LG

Just like AUO, LG plans to develop a 1080p 480Hz panel. It’s a 24.5″ IPS panel with an sRGB color gamut and DisplayHDR 400. Panel development is set for Q4 2022 though. They’re also planning a 1440p panel with a refresh rate higher than 240Hz in 2022.

Additionally, LG wants to improve response time overdrive implementations on their panels even further for less overshoot.

New LG panels will also feature reduced low-blue light emission to meet the latest Eyesafe certification.

In 2021, LG wants to extend the color gamut coverage of their panels to 100% DCI-P3 and over 90% Rec2020 in 2022.

Finally, they’re working on the ‘IPS Black’ technology. There isn’t much information available about it yet, but it’s supposed to improve blacks on their IPS panels as the name suggests. The production of the first panels utilizing this technology should start in January 2022; they’ll be available in 27″ and 32″ 4K wide color gamut variants.

On top of that, LG Display is planning 42″ OLED TVs for 2022.

BOE

Here, you’ll find the latest panel developments regarding BOE’s ADS (Advanced Super Dimension Switch), basically IPS, panels.

BOE’s also working on their BD Cell technology, aiming to compete with OLED. It involves a dual-cell panel with ‘pixel-level backlight control’ that should bring 12-bit color depth support and a contrast ratio of up to 2,000,000:1. We’ll add more information regarding this technology and its development as it becomes available.

They also have a 32:9 1800R curved super-ultrawide OLED panel in the works, though that’s all the information we have regarding the panel at the moment.

Corsair Monitors

Corsair Xeneon 32QHD165

Corsair Xeneon 32QHD165 Monitor

The Xeneon 32QHD165 is Corsair’s first monitor. It’s based on a 32″ 1440p 165Hz IPS panel by AU Optronics and features a QDEF (quantum dot enhanced film) layer for the wide 100% Adobe RGB color gamut.

It supports variable refresh rate, MBR, DisplayHDR400 and has an sRGB emulation mode (adjustable brightness, other settings are locked).

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, USB-C (DP 1.4 Alt Mode, 15W PD), a headphone jack and a dual-USB 3.0 hub, while the stand offers height adjustment up to 110mm, tilt by -5°/20° and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Its $800 price tag is quite steep though as you can get the ASUS PG329Q based on the same panel with better overdrive implementation and DisplayHDR 600 support for $100 less.

The Gigabyte M32Q offers similar image quality and performance (though without the Adobe RGB gamut) at basically half the price.

Finally, you can get a 32″ 4K 144Hz IPS gaming monitor for around the same price, such as the Gigabyte M32U with 90% DCI-P3 for $800 or the ASUS PG32UQ with 100% Adobe RGB for $1,000.

Acer Monitors

Acer EI491CRG9
Acer EI491CRG9 Monitor

The Acer EI491CRG9 will be based on the same panel as the new mini-LED version of the Odyssey G9, so we can expect the same key specifications.

It’s a 49″ 5120×1440 240Hz 32:9 ultrawide curved (1000R) gaming monitor with a fast 1ms GtG response time speed, “DisplayHDR 2000”, 2048-zone local dimming solution, FreeSync/G-SYNC Compatible support, and 95% DCI-P3 color gamut.

We’ll update the article once we have more information!

Update: It seems that Acer ‘paused‘ the development of the EI491CRG9, so its presentation will be delayed.

Philips Monitors

Philips 279P2MRX

Philips 279P2MRX

The Philips 279P2MRX is a 27″ 4K IPS monitor featuring a mini-LED backlight with a 2304-zone full-array local dimming solution for an amazing HDR image quality; it even has VESA’s high-end DisplayHDR 1400 certification.

Other specifications include a wide 100% Adobe RGB color gamut, Delta E < 2 factory-calibration, and two Thunderbolt 4 ports. More information to follow.

Philips 329M1RV

Philips 329M1RV Monitor

Philips announced the new 329M1RV 32″ 4K 144Hz IPS gaming monitor.

The main specifications include quick 1ms GtG pixel response time, wide 95% DCI-P3 color gamut, 400-nit peak brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 10-bit color depth, and 178° viewing angles.

The display also features Delta E < 2 factory-calibration, FreeSync, Ambiglow RGB lighting, and DTS integrated speakers.

Connectivity options include DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports (sadly no HDMI 2.1), and a USB-C port.

No word on pricing and availability yet.

New Console Gaming Displays

Philips 4k Console Gaming Monitor

Philips has introduced three new console gaming monitors to their Momentum series:

  • Philips 558M1RY – 55″ 4K 120Hz VA display with HDR 1000 and edge-lit local dimming. It also offers three HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort, and a quad-USB 3.0 hub. The HDMI ports are limited to 60Hz at 4K or 120Hz at 1440p. For 4K 120Hz, you will need to use the DisplayPort input.
  • Philips 559M1RYV – 55″ 4K 144Hz VA display with HDR1000, HDMI 2.1, and USB-C (with 65W PD and DP Alt Mode).
  • Philips 328M1R – 32″ 4K 120Hz VA monitor with HDR 600, 1ms MPRT, and the same connectivity options as the 55″ variant + HDMI 2.1.

Both monitors support AMD FreeSync and feature the Ambiglow RGB lighting technology.

The release date of the Philips 328M1R has been pushed to Q1 2021, as Philips wants to implement HDMI 2.1 to make the monitors ready for the next-gen consoles.

AOC Monitors

AOC AGON AG274QXM

AOC AGON AG274QXM

The AOC AG274QXM is a 27″ 1440p 165Hz (170Hz OC) 1ms GtG FreeSync gaming monitor based on an IPS panel with a wide 99% Adobe RGB and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut.

More importantly, it will feature a mini LED backlight with a 576-zone full-array local dimming system and have a strong peak brightness of 1,000-nits thus earning VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000 certification.

It’s the first 1440p gaming monitor with meaningful HDR support, which is something that will interest many gamers who prefer higher frame rates to 4K UHD resolution!

The price and release date are currently unknown. It’s also possible that this will be a China-exclusive model, but at least we’re seeing that proper HDR support is on its way to the more affordable and ‘easier-to-drive’ 1440p widescreen monitors.

Expect an update as soon as something new comes up.

Samsung Monitors

Updated Samsung Odyssey G9

Samsung announced that they’ll be releasing a new and improved version of the Odyssey G9.

The new ‘Neo G9’ model will have the same key specifications as the older one, including a 49″ 5120×1440 240Hz 1ms GtG 1000R curved VA panel, but this time with a 2048-zone FALD mini LED backlight.

Update: The monitor is now available and you can check out our Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 review.

Acer will also release a model based on the same panel, called Acer EI491CRG9. No word on its official pricing and release date though.

New Samsung Odyssey G3, G5 & G7 Monitors
Samsung S28AG700 Monitor

Samsung revealed the new S28AG70 (G7), the S27AG50 (G5) and the S27AG30, S24AG30 (G3) Odyssey gaming monitors.

When Samsung announced flat-screen Odyssey G5 and G7 variants a few months back, most people were hoping for flat versions of the C27G75T and the C32G75T – with 1440p 240Hz VA panels and fast 1ms GtG response time speed.

The S28AG70 and the S27AG50, however, use IPS panels with different specifications altogether. We can’t confirm whether this means that there will be no flat-screen 1440p 240Hz 1ms VA variants.

The S28AG70 uses a 4K 144Hz IPS panel by Innolux and features DisplayHDR 400, FreeSync Premium Pro, and HDMI 2.1.

The S27AG50 is based on a 1440p 165Hz IPS panel with a fast 1ms GtG response time speed, FreeSync, and 99% sRGB color gamut.

Samsung Odyssey G7 Flat screen

The current-generation Samsung Odyssey G3 flat-screen models are now available, the Samsung F27G3 and the Samsung F24G3. However, as their GtG pixel response time is slow, you get the usual VA-panel dark-level smearing – unlike the G7/G9 models.

The new G3 series, the Samsung S27AG30 and the S24AG30 are identical to the old one, apart from the lower specified contrast ratio of 3,000:1 – as opposed to 4,000:1 of the F24G3 and F27G3.

In other TV-related news, Samsung announced new Neo QLED and QLED TVs for gaming with 4K 120Hz resolution, variable refresh rate, and low 5.8ms input lag. The QN90A series will support AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, whereas all Q70A and better models will have support for 21:9 and 32:9 ultrawide resolutions.
