We got another little glimpse of what LG plans to show at CES 2022. Last time around we looked at the company’s very first official gaming laptop, but this time we see monitors geared toward professionals. That being said, I can think of a few players I know, including myself, who could get real use from these things.
The first is LG’s new 32UQ85R UltraFine Display designed for graphic designers, photo editors and other such professionals. This is a 32-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) HDR400 display with an emphasis on contrast and color.
According to LG, it has a 2000: 1 contrast ratio while something like the LG 27GN950-B has a 1000: 1 contrast ratio and tops our list of the best gaming monitors of the year. . It even comes with a removable auto-calibration sensor to keep those colors true. This, combined with what LG is touting as its first Nano IPS Black panel to help with those darker tones, should make for a really nice display. Although there is no mention of the refresh rate yet.
LG’s second new monitor again has a 1000: 1 contrast ratio, but comes with a different ratio instead. The DualUp monitor has a 31.5-inch, 2560 x 2880 ultra-wide screen with a 16:18 aspect ratio as opposed to the typical 16: 9. This is basically the opposite of Ultrawide monitors which sit at 21: 9. It’s more like having a second screen on top, providing the same screen space as two 21.5-inch monitors. Considering how many people I’ve seen with setups like this anyway, it seems like a smart idea, especially since LG has included a vertical split view mode which could be of great help.
You can get a full list of the specs currently available in LG’s press release and hopefully more information at LG’s CES show on January 4th. look at these professional products. Sometimes they give us a glimpse of what we can all expect a bit later, and bigger screens with better colors certainly sound like a bright future to me.
