LG has taken advantage of its presence at IFA 2022 to ensure that it remains the “undisputed leader” of the global TV market premiumholding at the top of sales for nine consecutive years.

The device features a 21:9 aspect ratio and a WQHD resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels. It also stands out for the support for DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1; the latter allows you to take advantage of the variable refresh rate (VRR), something that is always well appreciated by video game fans.
Another important aspect to mark the new curved OLED monitor from LG is that, beyond the refresh rate of 240 Hz, it boasts a DCI-P3 color space coverage of 98.5%.
UltraFine Display Ergo AI, a monitor that automatically adjusts its position
Beyond the proposals for the gamersLG has also presented at IFA 2022 the UltraFine Display Ergo AI. It is a monitor for productive environments that can automatically adjust its height and positionto prevent the user from staying in the same position for a long time.
It has a camera that continuously analyzes the position of the person in front of the screen; thus, thanks to artificial intelligence, it can make subtle but very beneficial modifications. The monitor includes three modes of monitoring and optimization, and is capable of changing the height of the screen between 0 and 160 millimeters, as well as its inclination up or down 20 °.
Beyond ergonomics, the UltraFine Display Ergo AI stands out for its 31.5-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. In addition, it has a refresh rate of 60 Hz and covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color space.
LG OLED Flex, the first OLED TV capable of changing its curvature
Another LG novelty at IFA 2022 has been the presentation of OLED Flexits first 42-inch OLED TV with flexible screen. The South Korean brand promotes it as an item specially designed for gamingAnd he has his reasons.
The highlight of this kit is that it can be used completely flat, or adjust screen curvature using a dedicated button on the remote. A function that the firm had already shown at the beginning of 2021 at CES.
The LG OLED Flex comes with two default curvature settings, or users can choose to manually adjust it 5% at a time to 20 different levels. The Asian company ensures that the maximum curvature of its TV with a flexible screen is similar to that of a fixed 900R curved monitor.
Another interesting point is that the device allows you to resize the image to occupy only a portion of the screen. This allows you to play as if you were using a 27 or 32-inch monitor. In terms of image quality, it uses the same technology as the 97G2 and supports Dolby Vision to play in 4K at 120 frames per second. But that is not all. It works with VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) thanks to the adoption of HDMI 2.1, and also supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync technologies.

Prior to the start of IFA 2022, LG announced its joining the Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA). We are talking about an alliance between different companies to simplify the interoperability of smart home devices.
