32-Inch 4K OLED Gaming Monitors from Samsung & LG Are Coming in 2024

Here is a roadmap of some cool monitors.

2024 will be the year to upgrade your fancy PC setup as a bunch of cool gaming monitors will be available soon, according to Dough, a boutique monitor startup.

In a post on Reddit, a Dough representative shared the company’s roadmap for OLED displays for the next 18 months. Alas, the 32-inch 4K RGB OLED monitor from JOLED has been canceled.

However, there is still a lot to be excited about. Samsung and LG should release their 32-inch 4K panels running at 240Hz in 2024. Here is what the Dough rep had to say about the tech behind them:

W-OLED (White OLED) from LG Display:

  • Structure: Utilises a white OLED light source with red, green and blue filters, to generate the desired colors. An additional white sub-pixel is added to the RGB structure to help boost brightness.

  • Advantages: This is the most cost-efficient solution availible on the market with high yield rates during production. LG Display have been producing WOLED panels in the TV market for many years, exclusively in fact until quite recently. This technology helps in providing uniform brightness and a potentially longer lifespan compared to traditional RGB OLED since w-oled pixels have uniform aging.

  • Disadvantages: Color fringing and text rendering, smaller colour gamut and volume

  • Existing monitor panels: 27” 2560 x 1440 240Hz, 45” ultrawide 3440 x 1440 240Hz, and 42”/48” 3840 x 2160 “4K” 120Hz large format displays

QD-OLED (Quantum Dot OLED) from Samsung Display:

  • Structure: This technology combines a blue OLED light source with a red and green quantum dot emission layer to produce the colours.

  • Advantages: QD-OLED monitor panels can offer improved brightness and wider colour gamut/volume compared with WOLED panels in the monitor space

  • Disadvantages: Text rendering and fringing problems due to unusual sub-pixel layout. QD-OLED suffers from reduced perceived contrast ratio under certain ambient lighting conditions due to the lack of a polarizer (doesn’t impact WOLED in the same way). increased cost due to quantum dot layer. Flexible panel design is not possible due to quantum dot layer and the way it is applied

  • Existing monitor panels: 34” ultrawide 3440 x 1440 175Hz, 49” super ultrawide 5120 x 1440 with 240Hz

The 4K models will probably cost around $1,000-$1,500.

And if 32 inches is not enough for you, LG will launch its 34-inch and 39-inch WQHD panels in the middle of next year, according to the roadmap.

The Dough rep also commented on LCD displays, saying big companies are "de-investing from LCD business and shifting their resources into OLED."
