LG announces new displays

LG has announced that it will be revealing two of its next-generation ultra-wide curved displays next month. The company will be demonstrating the UltraGear 38GL950G and the UltraWide 49WL95C at CES next month.

LG’s UltraGear 38GL950G is set to become one of the display industry’s first ever 38-inch monitors to feature a 144 Hz refresh rate. And the UltraWide 49WL95C, at 49-inches, is set to become LG’s largest ever monitor made for prosumers or professionals.

The UltraGear 38GL950G

LG’s UltraGear 38GL950G is a display aimed at gamers with support for a number of LG’s propriety gaming features including overdrive control, crosshair overlay, gamma tuning on dark scenes etc. It will also support NVIDIA’s G-Sync dynamic refresh rate technology. Furthermore, it will feature LG’s Sphere Lighting which will add ambient lighting effects.

The UltraGear 38GL950G is also set to become one of the first 38-inch curved WQHD+ displays with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. This is a new landmark for LG. The company had previously, however this refresh rate at displays only as big as 34-inches. LG however has always been ahead in this game. The standard size for a gaming display is still only 24 or 27 inches.

The UltraGear 38GL950G’s 38 inch curved display panel will feature an impressive resolution of 3840×1600 (an aspect ratio of 21:9). It will feature a horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 178° each. A 98% coverage of the sRGB color space, pixel density of 109 PPI and 450 nits (cd/m²) of peak brightness. It will also feature one HDMI2.0 input, one DisplayPort 1.2 input and two USB 3.0 hubs for type-A connectors.

LG’s UltraGear 38GL950G will be available sometime next year.

The UltraWide 49WL95C

LG’s UltraWide 49WL95C is set to become the company’s largest ever display monitor. LG was one of the first companies to release a ultra-wide 37.5-inch LCD for entertainment purposes and a 42.5-inch LCD for prosumers. But it has so far failed to keep up with rival companies that have released 49-inch monitors. The UltraWide 49WL95C is set to change all that.

It will feature a resolution of 5120×1440 (an aspect ratio of 32:9), horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 178° each, 99% coverage of the sRGB color space, a pixel density of 108 PPI and 350 nits (cd/m²) of peak brightness. For general connectivity, it will feature one HDMI 2.0 input, one DisplayPort 1.2 input, and four USB 3.0 hubs for type-A connectors. But perhaps one of the most distinguishing features of the UltraWide 49WL95 is its USB Type-C docking capabilities. It 49WL95C will feature one USB type-C input with 85 Watts of USB power delivery. This much power could easily feed most 15-inch laptops. Furthermore, it will also feature two 10 W stereo speakers.

LG’s UltraWide 49WL95C will also be available sometime next year.
