LG is releasing new screens for consumers, and we now have our first look at what they will look like. The LG UltraFine Display and DualUp monitor are two displays that are expected to be part of the company’s CES 2022 portfolio.
The LG UltraFine Display has many of the features you’d expect from a high-end display. On a Nano IPS Black panel with a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, it offers 32 inches of action at 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) quality. It also has AMD FreeSync support and a number of connectors, including USB-C, DisplayPort, and two HDMI ports.
Meanwhile, the LG DualUp monitor is mixing things up by abandoning the 16:9 and 16:10 ratios. Instead, it has a 28-inch 16:18 “Square Double” QHD (2,560 x 2,880) display. It has a brightness cap of 300 nits, versus 400 for the UltraFine Display, and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, versus 2,000:1 for the UltraFine. Additionally, the DualUp does not support AMD FreeSync. However, in exchange for the spec flaws, you’ll get a brand-new screen format.
The DualUp “elevates user comfort with the ultra-adjustable LG Ergo stand, which saves space by clamping securely to most desks and tables,” according to the company. So, instead of a standard stand, a clamp is used.
The DualUp’s unique design, according to LG, “helps decrease side-to-side head movements, the primary source of neck strain.” The monitor appears to be ideal for video editors, as it allows them to have information on the top and editing tools on the bottom in one enormous window. It also allows for more inventive arrangements, such as side-by-side DualUp displays.
All we know is that it’s cool and unique, and we can’t wait to taste one for ourselves.
The UltraFine and the DualUp both have the same port choices. The DualUp provides auto-brightness and both displays have 5ms reaction times.
More information regarding both machines, including pricing, will be announced at CES 2022 during LG’s virtual conference on January 4, 8 a.m. PST, so stay tuned.
