LG is expected to launch a cheaper OLED gaming monitor to compete with Samsung

After launching its first QD -OLED TV earlier this year, Samsung recently started offering its QD-OLED panels for displays. Dell (Alien), MSI, and Samsung recently launched their own QD-OLED displays. Now, LG is trying to enter the OLED gaming monitor market with its cheaper OLED panels.

According to OLED-Info, LG Display will start producing 27-inch WOLED panels for small TVs and gaming monitors as early as the end of this month. LG Electronics may become LG Display's first customer, possibly launching a 27-inch OLED gaming monitor in the first quarter of 2023.

LG is also likely to start making 32-inch WOLED panels by the end of this year, which are likely to be used in gaming monitors rather than TVs. This is because 32-inch OLED TVs are likely to cost significantly more than their LCD counterparts, and LG will have a hard time justifying their prices. On the other hand, the price of a 32-inch OLED display may be more acceptable to gaming enthusiasts.

Upcoming gaming monitors using LG's WOLED panels will compete with those using Samsung's QD-OLED technology, including Samsung's own Odyssey G8 OLED. That could be a good thing for consumers, though, as it means the price of OLED displays could come down.

The report also says that LG will increase its production of WOLED panels under 40 inches in order to push the development of OLED technology even in mid-size TVs.
