LG introduces two new MacBook Pro compatible displays, one being UltraWide with 5K resolution

Trying to escape the avalanche of launches that plague the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), LG Today announced a new monitor that will show up at the 2018 tech fair, to be held earlier this year in Las Vegas.

I'm talking about the 32UK950 model, which features a 32-inch UHD screen with 4K resolution and debuts Nano IPS technology that, according to the company, takes monitor color reproduction to a new level.

LG's new monitor

According to LG, it is a technology that applies nanometer-sized particles to the display LED to absorb excess wavelengths of light. This, in turn, increases the intensity and purity of colors on the screen for a more accurate viewing experience. The monitor is capable of displaying 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, is compatible with HDR 600 technology and has a high dynamic range of maximum brightness of 600cd /.

The screen also has Thunderbolt 3 inputs and supports daisy chaining (connecting other peripherals), for example, it is possible to connect two 4K monitors. It is, of course, compatible with Touch Bar MacBooks Pro and any other computer that has Thunderbolt 3 port in its frame. The port, however, is capable of delivering 60W ie apparently cannot recharge the 15 ″ MacBook Pro for it.

Unlike the LG UltraFine 5K, it has very discrete margins, giving more value to the content shown on the screen.

LG's new ultrawide monitor

Already the 34WK95U model is a 34 inch UltraWide monitor that supports the wide range of accurate colors and viewing angles at 5K resolution (5120 × 2160 pixels). This is LG's first 21: 9 UltraWide monitor with this resolution (in fact, I venture to be one of the first on the market). It also features Nano IPS technology and has all Thunderbolt 3 cable connectivity for audio, video and power.

Details such as price and availability of both monitors, however, we will only know at CES 2018 in a few weeks.
