New monitor from LG

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

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

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

According to LG, it is a technology that applies nanometer-sized particles to the LED on the screen to absorb the excess wavelength of light. This, in turn, increases the intensity and purity of the colors on the screen for a more accurate viewing experience. The monitor is capable of displaying 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, and is also compatible with HDR 600 technology and with a high dynamic range of maximum brightness of 600cd / ㎡.

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

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

LG's new ultrawide monitor

The 34WK95U is a 34-inch UltraWide monitor that supports a wide range of accurate colors and viewing angles in a 5K resolution (5120 × 2160 pixels). This is LG’s first UltraWide monitor with a 21: 9 aspect ratio and with this resolution (in fact, I would venture to say that it is one of the first on the market). It also features Nano IPS technology and its connectivity is all done by Thunderbolt 3 cable – audio, video and power.

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