LG Announces the World’s Largest Curved Ultra-Wide Monitor With a Boatload of Features


Samsung and LG and the finest purveyors of curved ultra-wide monitors, but it appears that the latter has a small step ahead of the tech giant. It has done this with the announcement of not one, but two curved ultra-wide monitors, with one of them featuring the largest screen size at this current time.

The LG 38UC99 Is the First of Its Kind and Also Features an Impressive Refresh Rate – All Models Are Expected to Be Detailed at IFA 2016

As you can tell from the model name, the LG 38UC99 is a 38-inch curved ultra-wide monitor, making it the largest of its kind out there. The aspect ratio of all three models are 21:9, and the company will be showing off these models at the 2016 IFA trade show. The remaining two models feature a screen size of 34 inches. The first one is a flat model with built-in Google Cast capabilities, while the other one is a curved one, and is the first of its kind with a refresh rate of 144Hz.

The largest one is able to resonate a resolution of 3840 x 1600. Though it’s slightly shy of the 4K resolution mark, the monitor is the first of its kind to feature a Type-C USB port, and comes with two Bluetooth speakers packed inside its chassis. This massive monitor also fetches a large price tag of $1,499 and it’s going to be launching mid-September.

The 34-inch 34UC79G is a smaller curved ultra-wide monitor, but far more affordable. It will carry a price tag of $599, but the only drawback to this is you will have to wait a little longer, since the monitor is going to be officially released during the month of November. As for the flat-screen monitor, the one that includes Google Cast out of the box, it will carry a price tag of $699 and will launch during the month of October.
