The maker of OLED panels isn't releasing an OLED monitor, but instead has focused on a new technology it calls Nano IPS, which from the description sounds nearly like it's a shift on how Quantum Dot technology works.
According to the press release, "Nano IPS technology involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths". LG's very first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor is loaded to the maximum with a hefty amount of screen real estate and eye-popping colors.
The first variant - called 32UK950 - will end up sporting a 32-inch 4K UHD display.
Alongside that large resolution it will have a Thunderbolt 3 port, slim bezels and a professional slant with lots of color grading options, as per ArsTechnica. The technology improves the intensity and purity of on-screen color for a more vivid viewing experience, claims LG. This LG monitor can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which is the Hollywood standard. This will come with HDR600 support which means that it can support a peak brightness level of 600 nits, along with local dimming feature and 10-bit processing.
LG has announced a 34-inch ultrawide 5K monitor with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, allowing a single-cable connection to a Mac that includes power. It comes with a flat 34-inch 5K (5,120×2,160) Nano IPS display and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Again the Edge-ArcLine Stand, and 4-Side Edge Borderless Design are utilised.
LG is going to showcase many new products at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 next month. It's the first to offer the company's advanced Nano IPS technology.
It can connect to Thunderbolt 3 notebooks like the MacBook Pro with a single cable. We'll have to see the panels in action before saying if that's anything more than jargon, though.
"With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace". It may also reveal the prices and the availability details.
