If you’re in the market for new monitors, you’re in luck as LG has announced a trio of new ultrawide monitors ahead of IFA 2016. These monitors are of the 21:9 variety and are sized between 34-inches to 38-inches, so safe to say that these aren’t necessarily for the average computer user.
Starting with what LG is calling the “world’s largest” 38-inch curved monitor, this display has the model number 38UC99 and will be priced at $1,500. It will sport a QHD+ resolution of 3840×1600 and will come with a USB-C port, which apparently it will be the world’s first monitor to do so as well. This means that if your computer is out of ports, you can always use it to charge some of your newer USB-C compatible gadgets.
Next up we are looking at the 34UC79G and the 34UM79M. Both of these monitors are of the 34-inch variety, with the former being a curved monitor, while the latter is of the more traditional flat display variety. They are priced at $700 and $600 respectively which is actually pretty decent, with the former also supporting AMD’s FreeSync technology.
According to Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company, “With tablets and smartphones at their disposal, consumers today don’t feel shackled to their desks anymore so it’s more important than ever that their monitors offer additional user benefits and conveniences.” The monitors are expected to go on sale in September, October, and November respectively.
