LG's first Nano IPS-based monitor to become official at CES, 2018

New LG monitors flaunt Nano IPS tech, Thunderbolt 3 connection

The maker of OLED panels isn't releasing an OLED monitor, but instead has focused on a new technology it calls Nano IPS, which from the description sounds nearly like it's a shift on how Quantum Dot technology works.

Nano IPS is developed to improved colour accuracy and it is the reverse of what QLED is. Further, the LG monitors would be capable of displaying 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, compared to the "monitors used to master Hollywood blockbusters", LG said, in a press release.

LG has also confirmed that it will showcase a 32 inch ultrawide 5K HDR monitor at CES 2018.

The LG 32UK950 also features razor-slim bezels thanks to a 4-Side Edge Borderless design and a built-in Thunderbolt 3 dock. This results in greatly enhanced intensity and purity of on-screen colours for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience, says the firm.

By applying nanometer-sized particles to the display panels themselves, LG claims their displays will absorb excess light wavelengths and deliver stunning picture quality.

LG says the spec includes HDR600, which is a new VESA standard covering brightness levels, black level, color gamut and bit depth. It too comes with its own Thunderbolt 3 port, which will actually let you hook up a second 4K monitor to it if you wanted to daisy chain rather than plugging them directly into your graphics card. This one goes up to 5K which is 5120 x 2160 and it is LG's first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor.

"Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month and yet it's one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired", said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG's IT business division, in a statement. The 34GK950G has a 34-inch screen, again using the new Nano IPS technology, and it offers a QHD resolution.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will be held from 9-12 January next year and we are already starting to hear news about the probable launches. This LG monitor can connect to Thunderbolt 3 notebooks like Macbook Pro via a single active Thunderbolt 3 cable - no charging adapter or unsightly USB cables required. The company is yet to reveal any pricing information.
