LG plans two new curved monitors
The IFA 2016 exhibition in Berlin, Germany is just days away and it will become the place where LG will announce two new curved monitors – the UltraWide 38UC99 and the Curved UltraWide 34UC79G. Both monitors use the 21:9 aspect ratio and are based on IPS technology.
“Consumers are adopting a new way of working and playing, and LG has developed our new 21:9 UltraWide monitors to meet the needs of this evolving lifestyle,” said Tim Alessi, senior director, product marketing for home entertainment at LG Electronics USA. “LG’s innovative monitor lineup takes things to a whole new level delivering a more immersive experience than ever before, maximized screen real estate with unparalleled resolution and advanced user experience features.”
The LG UltraWide 38UC99 monitor boasts a 38-inch display, which makes it the largest monitor in its class. The display works at QHD+ resolution (3840 x 1600 pixels) and covers 99 per cent of the sRGB color space. The UltraWide 38UC99 has been made to meet the needs of professionals, designers and artists who need more desktop space for their projects. The monitor also comes with two 10W speakers, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB Type-C port.
The LG Curved UltraWide 34UC79G comes with a 34-inch display that offers 1 ms of response time and AMD’s FreeSync technology, which allows it to work at 144 Hz. The monitor has been designed for gamers and comes with a special mouse line hook that prevents drag resistance caused by the mouse cable.
The LG UltraWide 38UC99 monitor will be available in mid-September for USD 1499, while the LG Curved UltraWide 34UC79G gaming monitor will be in stores in mid-October for a price of USD 699.
