AOC has officially presented a brand new 4K UHD 43-inch 16:9 monitor that should be launched some time next year. There are no details regarding release date, availability nor pricing, and we should update this post when AOC releases such details.
The monitors sports a 16:9 aspect ratio meaning it's not an ultrawide panel though it is a huge one and it resembles a TV set more than a monitor. The 144hz variable refresh rate also makes it great for gaming, though you will need a beast of a computer PC in order to get over 100fps at 4K UHD resolution.
Here are some of the other main features that this monitor will pack at launch: 43-inch VA flat screen, 1ms MPRT minimum response time, 720nits maximum brightness, excellent wide viewing angles, 8bit + FRC color depth, 95% DCI-P3, 100% sRGb color gamuts, NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync technologies support, two HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, Picture-in-Picture(PiP), Picture-by-Picture(PbP), four USB 3.2 ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, and built-in 7W integrated speakers.
The HDMI 2.1 ports will allow this monitor to be used with the latest Xbox Series X and Sony PlayStation 5 gaming consoles. Note that the consoles will only get 4K at 120hz maximum refresh rates, while the 144hz value is only available to desktop computers. These were all the details we got on this monitor, and we will return with extra details about availability and pricing when these will be released.
