Pretty much the majority of monitors and displays out there have adopted the landscape format. Sure, some users might prefer to orient their monitors into a vertical position for better reading of websites, code, and so on, but for the most part, the horizontal positioning is more or less the standard.

However, LG is trying to shake things up as the company has announced a new monitor called the DualUp that uses a very unique 16:18 aspect ratio. As you can see in the photo above, the end result is a monitor that’s kind of square/rectangular in shape. It measures 27.6-inches diagonally and has a 2560×2880 resolution.

It also comes with an Ergo stand that lets the display clamp to your desk instead of sitting on it. According to LG, they claim that the display size and aspect ratio is the equivalent of two 21.5-inch displays if you were to stack them on top of each other. We’re not sure how many users might make this their primary monitor, but as a secondary display that lets you stack apps on top of each other instead of side-by-side, it’s not a bad idea.

However, we imagine that some users might prefer the flexibility of a more traditional monitor that they can orient in vertical or horizontal position whenever they want instead of being locked in, but that boils down to personal preference. There is currently no word on how much the LG DualUp is expected to cost just yet.
