LG launches DualUp screen with 16:18″ aspect ratio
- Tram Ho
If a computer monitor with traditional proportions cannot meet your needs, LG has an extremely interesting solution. Today, LG has launched a monitor that it calls “a completely new format in the display market”. LG’s monitor is called DualUp, with a super weird aspect ratio of 16:18.
LG says this DualUp monitor is like two 21.5-inch monitors stacked on top of each other. The split screen on the bottom will make multitasking easier and more convenient, users can cover more things, compared to stacking two screens side by side horizontally.
DualUp has a resolution of 2560×2880 pixels and a size of 27.6 inches, a maximum brightness of 300 nits and can cover 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. This special monitor is attached to LG’s included Ergo kickstand, which clamps onto most desks and saves space on your desk.
LG claims that this double-height DualUp monitor offers ergonomic benefits. Because it helps “reduce the side-to-side head movement, a major cause of neck pain in users.”
LG has not yet revealed the price of this DualUp monitor, but it seems that it is intended for professional users so the price may not be cheap at all.
Besides, LG also launched a 32-inch UltraFine 4K monitor with the usual 16: 9 aspect ratio. This is the first screen to use Nano IPS Black panel, which can output the most realistic black tones.
Both new LG monitors are equipped with two HDMI ports, one USB-C upstream port (for connecting to a computer) and two regular USB-C ports. Users can use this USB-C port to charge external devices with a capacity of 96 watts.
