LG announces 49" and 38" ultrawide PC monitors

19 Dec 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG has announced two new ultra wide curved monitors. The 49-inch 32:9 monitor has been designed for productivity, whereas the 38-inch 21:9 monitor has been designed for gaming.

49-inch UltraWide monitor

The upcoming 49-inch 49WL95 monitor offers 5120x1440 pixel resolution and has been “built to boost productivity for any task”, the company said. It has built-in speakers, USB-C, and an IPS LCD panel with sRGB color coverage.

- “To make the most of the incredibly expansive screen real estate, the LG UltraWide Monitor features a Picture-by-Picture mode to view content from multiple sources side-by-side and work with multiple applications simultaneously. Dual Controller Software allows connection to several devices all controllable via a single keyboard and mouse, working seamlessly with PBP to improve workflow and increase efficiency. With USB Type-C ports, users can transfer data and charge devices – even laptops – simultaneously,“ the company said.

LG also pointed out that it supports HDR10. However, HDR remain a fata morgana in the PC ecosystem. This particular monitor has a low-contrast IPS LCD panel, sRGB color space, and 350 nits brightness.

The first actual HDR PC monitors cost upwards of $2000. The rest support HDR in software – which is easy – but lack the display qualities to deliver proper HDR.

LG UltraGear gaming monitor

LG’s other new monitor is the 38-inch 38GL950G offering 3840x1600 pixel resolution, a “Nano” IPS LCD panel, 98% DCI-P3, and 144Hz refresh rate with Nvidia G-Sync. It has been designed for gaming.

- “The UltraGear Monitor was designed to embrace gamers with its 21:9 aspect ratio, curved screen and virtually borderless design. Sphere Lighting, designed for immersive gaming ambiance, offers up to six different color settings that eminate from the back of the monitor and can be tailored to the gamers’ mood while also helping to reduce eye fatigue.”

Product specifications are included in the table below.

LG’s 2019 monitors will be showcased for the first time at CES 2019 in January. Availability and pricing details were not announced.
