LG’s New UltraGear Gaming Monitor Line-up is Now in Canada

LG Electronics Canada has confirmed the Canadian availability of its 2022 monitor line-up, including the UltraGear gaming monitors, models 48GQ900, 32GQ950, and 32GQ850, and LG DualUp model 28MQ780.

The 2022 LG UltraGear gaming monitors models 48GQ900 (OLED UHD), 32GQ950 (UHD model), and 32GQ850 (QHD) elevate gaming setups with specifications that complement graphics-intensive games across platforms. New designs feature hexagon lighting on the back of the monitor, which syncs with the dynamic sounds and visual effects in the game, adding an aesthetic appeal and a touch of personalization. 

Canada now sees the arrival of LG UltraGear’s first OLED gaming monitor, the 48GQ900. A Red Dot and iF Design Award-winning product, the self-emissive, 48-inch 4K display boasts a 120Hz (O/C 138Hz) refresh rate, a 0.1ms response time, colour accuracy, and a fully borderless design. Perfect for PC and console gaming, the new model features LG’s anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating, which reduces visual distractions so you can focus your attention fully on gameplay. The 48GQ900 comes with a remote specially designed for enhanced gaming convenience and a stylish stand for stability.

The LG UltraGear 32GQ950 is a 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) Nano IPS 1ms gaming display, LG’s first 4K model to implement ATW Polarizer technology, which improves the panel’s ability to ensure lively, accurate colours and deep, dark blacks across a wide viewing angle. VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, LG’s 32-inch monitor also offers high peak brightness (1,000 nits) and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, as well as easy connection to PCs and consoles with two HDMI 2.1 ports.

LG’s VESA AdaptiveSync Display-certified monitor has a QHD (2,560 x 1,440) Nano IPS panel with ATW Polarizer technology. It comes with VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, covers 98 percent of DCI-P3, and has a three-sided borderless design.

All 2022 LG UltraGear monitors are equipped with HDMI 2.1, which offers a 2.5 times higher bandwidth than HDMI 2.0 and is capable of transferring uncompressed files up to 4K 120Hz and 8K 30Hz without colour loss.

Improvements in the 2022 UltraGear line include the hexagon backlight, compatibility with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium, high refresh rates of up to 240Hz, and VESA DisplayHDR. The 32GQ950 and 32GQ850 are equipped with Mini-LED Nano IPS technology for brighter and clearer images. Unique dimming zones deliver precise backlight control and an ultra-high contrast ratio.

It provides an elevated colour spectrum with a 28-inch SDQHD (2,560 x 2,880) Nano IPS Display and DCI-P3 98%.

The Ergo Stand integrated with the monitor creates a flexible workstation to adapt to the comfort needs of the user. It allows you to optimize the desk setup by enabling forward or backward movements, swiveling, rotating, tilting, and more with this stand. 

The LG DualUp model 28MQ780 offers USB Type-C support to connect screens, mobile devices with a single cable, and 7Wx2ch stereo speakers with Waves MaxxAudio, and multiport for HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB 3.0.
