Upcoming 32-Inch 4K OLED Gaming Monitors Confirmed

A representative from monitor startup, Dough, has confirmed that a new generation of gaming monitors featuring 32-inch 4K OLED panels will be released next summer. The representative provided a roadmap outlining the company's expectations for OLED panels in the next 18 months. Unfortunately, the 32-inch 4K panel from Japanese panel maker JOLED has been delayed and may have been cancelled. The JOLED panel was the only option that offered a conventional RGB subpixel structure, making it optimal for text rendering on the PC. However, there are still other options available.

Samsung and LG will be releasing their own 32-inch 4K OLED panels. Both panels will run at 240Hz and use each company's respective panel technology: QD-OLED from Samsung and WOLED from LG. The specifics of these panels, such as brightness compared to existing OLED monitors, are not currently known. The Samsung QD-OLED version is expected to arrive in late summer, while LG's WOLED version will come a few months later. The pricing for these new monitors is estimated to be between $1,000 and $1,500.

In addition to the 32-inch 4K OLED monitors, LG will also be releasing 34-inch and 39-inch WQHD panels in mid-2024. Samsung already offers a 34-inch WQHD QD-OLED panel, which was used in the Alienware 34 AW3423DW, the first true OLED gaming monitor. The OLED roadmap from Dough does not include the 27-inch 4K OLED panels from TFT Central's earlier roadmap update, but this doesn't mean they won't be released in the future.

It is unclear which panels Dough will use from the roadmap, but considering they chose an LG panel for their own first OLED gaming monitor, it is likely they will use LG technology for a 32-inch 4K model. There are other interesting details mentioned in the post, such as LG shifting its focus from LCD production to OLED and the pricing of mini-LED LCD monitors. Further details can be found in the comments section of the Reddit post.
