Multitaskers and creative will like LG DualUp and UltraFine Display monitors.

LG has shown two new displays, the first of which is so large that it could easily be mistaken for two vertically stacked panels. Meet the LG DuaIUp, a 16:18 monitor that helps you multitask by doubling the vertical aspect ratio and allowing you to open two complete windows stacked vertically.

When viewed from afar, the monitor resembles a vertical twin monitor layout without the bezel in between. The LG monitor features “the same screen real estate as two 21.5-inch monitors and a vertical split view capability that lets users see more in one glance,” according to LG.

Apart from its appearance, this display has a 2560×2880 resolution and measures 27.6 inches diagonally. A supplied Ergo stand completes the monitor configuration, allowing the whole thing to be bolted to desks. The display panel is also 300 nits bright and covers 98 percent of the DCI-P3 colour palette. The contrast ratio is 1000:1.

LG also claims that the dual-height advantage can prevent your neck from swinging back and forth from left to right, which makes sense.

The LG DualUp eliminates the requirement for a horizontal dual-monitor arrangement and constant swinging between the two screens by allowing two full windows to be stacked vertically. Instead, you’ll only need to move your head up and down slightly, which is far easier to do when you’re repeating the motion for hours on end.

With all that on-screen real estate providing you plenty of freedom to customise your workspace and get your projects done more efficiently with less time wasted browsing and zooming, the Monitor could really shine with apps like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.

LG’s UltraFine 32-inch display
LG has also released a second 32-inch monitor, this time with a normal 16:9 aspect ratio. The 4K 32-inch UltraFine display has a “Nano IPS Black panel,” according to the company, which helps it produce “realistic and subtle black tones.”

It’s the smaller of the two monitors, but it’s also brighter, with a peak brightness of 400 nits. The display also has a self-calibration sensor that assures users see appropriate colour tones when editing photographs and videos, with a contrast ratio of 2000:1.

LG did not provide all of the facts regarding the two monitors, and more information will be unveiled during CES 2022, which begins on January 5, 2022. Both displays will, however, have two HDMI ports, one upstream USB-C port, and two downstream USB-C ports, according to LG. Although the ports aren’t Thunderbolt, they can charge external devices with up to 96W of power via USB power supply.
