LG is set to unveil the world’s largest ultra-wide monitor at IFA 2016. The new 38-inch curved monitor will be one of the three new ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio offerings the company has announced ahead of IFA 2016. Alongside the 38-inch curved monitor, LG is also introducing two new ultra-wide 34-inch monitors.
The biggest of the three offering, the 38-inch 38UC99 curved ultra-wide monitor comes with support for 4K quality video. The display produces ultra wide images at a resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels and wide colour gamut covering 99 per cent of the sRGB colour space. The monitor is also the first in the world to feature a USB-C port and it packs two Bluetooth speakers inside its body. The 38UC99 is a super monitor and comes with a super premium price tag of $1,499. LG says its ultra-wide 38-inch curved monitor will be available in mid-September.
LG is also introducing two new 34-inch ultra wide monitors – one with a flat panel and other with a curved panel. The flat model is the world’s first monitor to support Google Cast capabilities while the curved model is aimed at gaming enthusiasts with its 144Hz refresh rate. The monitor also adds a crosshair option which adds a target to the center of the screen to increase accuracy. LG says the crosshair option will help during FPS games.
The new ultra-wide monitors also come with dynamic action sync for lag free experience and includes AMD FreeSync for smoother gameplay.
