redmagic launches a 49 inch 240hz qd oled monitor

Behind the REDMAGIC 8S Prothe first smartphone with 24 GB of RAM, now we talk about the REDMAGIC QD-OLED, which as its own name suggests, is a monitor based on a QD-OLED panel. Thus, we find ourselves with its new top-of-the-range monitor, which has many similarities with the Samsung Odyssey OLED G9. In essence, both monitors would share the same panel. Basically, the specifications are identical, except that in this case, you will not pay the premium for the Samsung Oddysey brand.

These are the specifications of the REDMAGIC 49″ QD-OLED


The monitor is built around a QD-OLED panel of 49 inches at a Dual QHD resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels. Due to its enormous size, this panel has a curvature 1.800R so it can actually be used as a monitor. All this together results in a screen aspect with a format 32:9. The rest of the specifications go through a refresh rate of 240hz along with ultra-fast response time from 0.03 milliseconds (0.03msGtG). At the level of luminosity, it is capable of reaching the 1,000 nits. The information of the panel is completed with coverage of the DCI-P3 color space at 99%.

Continuing with the specifications, it is VESA certified Display HDR True Black 400. This means that the black Esports Extras will have a maximum luminosity of 0.0005 nits. The rest of the pixels can reach a maximum brightness of 400 nits without HDR mode. The certificate indicates that this offers up to 50 times greater dynamic range compared to the certified DisplayHDR 1000. Basically very deep blacks for better image quality.

At the technology level for image synchronization, we have the AMD FreeSync Pro next to NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible.

Connectivity and possible launch price


The information known from REDMAGIC 49″ QD-OLED is completed with at least two video inputs in the form of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4. This makes it ideal for use on both PC and consoles. Additionally, we have a large number of USB ports, one of them being a USB-C capable of supplying up to 90W of power. We continue with a couple of 5W speakers of power each, microphones, and RGB LED lighting on his back configurable by software.

In the pictures you can see a very attractive desEsports Extrasof the arm. It looks sturdy, and allows for height adjustment. We have a practically frameless desEsports Extrasand, obviously, the most interesting thing will be to know its price. As reference, the Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 costs $2,199. In this way, this monitor will be slightly cheaper as it is a REDMAGIC, but equally in a prohibitive price range for most users. Additionally, the company launched a 34-inch variant. Obviously, this will be more affordable, although you don’t think that much.
