LG Announces 21:9 5K Ultrawide 34-Inch Monitor

Touted as a multitasker's dream sporting a resolution of 5,120-by-2,160 and Nano IPS technology.

Tech companies are winding down for Christmas and end of year celebrations, but at the same time preparing for CES in early January. LG just gave us a sneak peek at what we can expect to see from them in Las Vegas next month, with an ultra-wide 5K monitor being the stand-out announcement.

LG is actually touting two new monitors launching next year. The first is the 32UK950, which is a 32-inch UHD monitor with a 4K resolution. It can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum and supports HDR 600, although it's unconfirmed whether this is LG's own reference to HDR support or the official VESA certified DisplayHDR 600 standard Samsung's 34-inch CHG90 monitor recently achieved.

The 32UK950 includes Thunderbolt 3 ports meaning you can plug a compatible laptop in and output to the display while charging your laptop using a single cable. Daisy-chaining also means you can hook up dual 4K monitors.

Then we have the LG 34WK95U, which will draw a lot of attention at CES. LG decided to combine a 21:9 aspect ratio with a 5K resolution to offer an extremely wide 34-inch monitor aimed at multitaskers. The resolution is actually 5,120-by-2,160, so it will still handle 4K content with borders while giving you more room for visible apps using your OS of choice. Add to that a "4 Side-Edge Borderless Design" and Thunderbolt 3, and LG could top a few monitor charts in 2018.

Both of these new LG monitors use the company's Nano IPS technology. What that does it to add "nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths." The end result is greatly enhanced on-screen colors in terms of "intensity and purity." People can make their own minds up as to the difference in quality on the LG stand in Las Vegas.
