Apple showed off LG's new Ultrafine 5K and 4K displays alongside the launch of their newest line of MacBook Pros. While they are great monitors, the price-point, screen size (in regards to the 4K model) and port variety still have left much to be desired.
Fortunately, LG has another model on the horizon with multimedia editors in mind. Earlier today, the company issued a press release for their new 32UD99, a 32-inch monitor with a 4K UHD IPS panel that supports the HDR10 standard. It is capable of displaying over 95% of the DCI-P3 color space and suitable for use with the new HDR-equipped gaming consoles like the Xbox One S or PS4 Pro.
The 2nd monitor, the company, has plans on releasing is dubbed the 34UM79M which is a 34″ ultrawide monitor that has a unique feature up its sleeve. For the first time, a monitor has an integrated Chromecast built within it so you can stream your favorite mobile content from your smartphone directly to the monitor and control the monitor's settings via a mobile companion app.
Lastly, LG will also release a 34-inch gaming monitor dubbed the 34UC99 that is expected to harness a similar design and feature set to its 32UD99 sibling. With two extra inches of screen real estate, a panel that boasts a 1ms response time and support for AMD's FreeSync technology, this could be a top contender for PC gamers depending on its price-point.
As of right now, there is no pricing, full spec lists or release date information made available to the public. All three models are set to be showcased next month at CES 2017 in Vegas (we'll be there!) so stay tuned for more information as we found out from the show floor.
