We once again learned about the products that LG plans to showcase during the 2022 International Consumer Electronics Show. Last time we saw the company’s first official gaming laptop, but this time we saw a monitor designed for professionals. Having said that, I can think of some gamers I know, including myself, who can get some real use from these things.
The first is LG’s new UltraFine Display 32UQ85R, designed for graphic designers, photo editors and other such professionals. This is a 32-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) HDR400 monitor with emphasis on contrast and color.
According to LG, it has a contrast ratio of 2,000:1, while the LG 27GN950-B has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, which is among the best in our annual best gaming monitor list. It is even equipped with a detachable auto-calibration sensor to maintain the authenticity of these colors. This, coupled with the first Nano IPS black panel touted by LG to help deal with those darker tones, should make it a very beautiful display. Although the refresh rate has not been mentioned yet.
LG’s second new display has restored a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, but with a different ratio. The DualUp display has a 31.5-inch, 2,560 x 2,880 ultra-wide screen with a 16:18 ratio instead of the typical 16:9. It is basically the opposite of the 21:9 ultra-wide display. This is more like having a second screen at the top, providing the same screen space as two 21.5-inch monitors in this way. Considering how many people I have seen use this setting, this seems like a smart idea, especially since LG includes a very useful vertical split view mode.
You can get a complete list of currently available specifications LG press release, I hope to get more information at LG’s CES show on January 4. Although I doubt whether we would recommend any of these models to hardcore gamers, it is always good to take a look at these professional products. Sometimes they give us a glimpse of what we can expect later, and a larger screen with better colors is undoubtedly a bright future for me.
