LG already jumped on the fire by announcing new OLED monitors before CES kicks off in January; now the company is announcing a few more panels, and these are designed for productivity.

The new LG UltraFine Display (32UQ85R) and DualUp Monitor (28MQ780) are aimed at different audiences, but are both intended to be placed in an office or remote workspace.

The 32-inch, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) UltraFine monitor is the first to use LG’s “Nano IPS Black” panel, which the company claims has a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. . While this isn’t OLED, which uses individual self-illuminated pixels to enable perfect blacks, LG promises “realistic and nuanced blacks” from its IPS Black technology.

One cool feature carried over from the UltraFine OLED Pro monitors announced last week is a detachable self-calibration sensor; This clip-on tool scans the monitor on a user-defined schedule and adjusts the pixels to display the most accurate colors.

Below are the main specifications of the UltraFine Display:

  • Size: 31.5 inches
  • Resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160)
  • Aspect Ratio: 16:9
  • Screen technology: Nano IPS Black
  • DCI-P3 color gamut: 98%
  • Maximum brightness: 400 nits
  • HDR: HDR400
  • AMD FreeSync: Yes
  • Response time: 5 milliseconds
  • Standard: Swivel / Height / Tilt
  • I/O: USB-C (96W power + data), HDMI (2x), DisplayPort, USB upstream, USB downstream (2x)
  • Speakers: Yes, 5W (2x)

The UltraFine is for photo and video editors, graphic designers and artists, and LG’s new DualUp Monitor is made for data crunchers and report writers. I say that because this monitor is tilted vertically on its side. As such, the 27.6-inch display has an unusual SDQHD resolution (2560 x 2880) and a 16:18 aspect ratio.

The SD in the name, by the way, stands for Square Double (we’re not making this up), and LG says it gives the UltraFine the same screen space as two 21.5-inch monitors. Several monitors can be rotated 90 degrees in a vertical orientation, but this panel comes with a split view feature so you can easily see multiple windows clicking together, one on top of the other.

If your desk space is limited, the DualUp comes with LG’s Ergo Stand, which has a small round base that clips to the side of most desks. It’s a nice space-saving feature for when your home office isn’t exactly its own room.

On a technical level, the DualUp isn’t quite as advanced as the UltraFine; it lacks AMD FreeSync and has a worse contrast ratio and lower maximum brightness, although, as you’ll see in the specs below, the panel should be detailed and colorful enough for most users.

  • Size: 27.6 inches
  • Resolution: SDQHD (2560 x 2880)
  • Aspect Ratio: 16:18
  • Screen technology: Nano IPS
  • DCI-P3 color gamut: 98%
  • Maximum brightness: 300 nits
  • HDR: HDR10
  • AMD FreeSync: No
  • Response time: 5 milliseconds
  • Default: pan/height/tilt/swivel
  • I/O: USB-C (96W power + data), HDMI (2x), DisplayPort, USB upstream, USB downstream (2x)
  • Speakers: 7W (2x)

We don’t have a release date or price for these monitors, but LG promised to share more details on its virtual CES press conference on Jan. 4 at 8:00 a.m. PT.
