LG Display is developing a new 27-inch OLED panel that will presumably go into some of its parent company’s desktop gaming monitors, according to a new report from TFT Central that discusses some of the display giant’s upcoming plans and panel technologies. This panel will reportedly offer a 2560 x 1440 resolution and, more excitingly, a 240 Hz refresh rate, double that of what display enthusiasts will find in LG’s modern OLED TVs, such as the C2, which maxes out at 120 Hz. LG Display’s new 27-inch OLED panel will also support VESA’s DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification, implying a maximum black level luminance of no more than .0005 for genuine blacks and stunning contrast ratios. It’s unclear what kind of burn-in prevention technologies LG will implement into these panels.
We don’t have a massive amount of information about this at the moment unfortunately but early indications are that LG.Display are working on a smaller sized WRGB pixel structure OLED panel for desktop monitor use, smaller than those featured in their popular OLED TV range (e.g. LG 42C2), and indeed used by most of the OLED TV market.
LG.Display are looking to offer a more “traditional” and common panel option it seems with a 27″ size, a flat format instead of curved, and with a 1440p resolution that is likely to be a popular and sensible option on a screen that size. They’re pushing the refresh rate up even higher than the Samsung 34″ 175Hz QD-OLED panel to 240Hz which should bring about improvements in motion clarity and frame rate support to improve gaming experience further.
