LG's 5K ultra-wide monitor claims pro-level accuracy with lifelike colors

LG will also unveil a new 1440p G-Sync monitor at CES 2018. LG says it "involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths".

Laptops are lovely, but one thing they lack is a ton of screen real estate, and when you tend to be stuck to a desk, you can take advantage of a bigger monitor. Additionally, the company has also launched its Nano IPS technology for the first time in its monitors.

LG has revealed a trio of monitors it will showcase at CES 2018, including a 34-inch ultra-wide display with a massive 5K resolution. Prosumers will appreciate the HDR 600 certified display, the Thunderbolt 3 docking functionality (with daisy chaining and up to 60W power delivery), the signature Edge-ArcLine Stand, and 4-Side Edge Borderless Design. It results in enhanced intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate viewing experience. It will have a 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color range and will utilise "Nano IPS" to improve image and color quality.

Apple will reportedly unify iOS and macOS apps in 2018
Under Project Marzipan, developers would be able to create a single app for all machines, including Mac, iPad, and iPhone. Cupertino is now targetting the release of iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 for the launch of its new unified platform for apps.

LG says the spec includes HDR600, which is a new VESA standard covering brightness levels, black level, color gamut and bit depth. That honor goes to the 34WK95U (pictured top), a 34-inch monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and what LG is calling a 5K panel (5120×2160). Moreover, the ultrawide monitor features 4-side edge borderless design and slim Edge-Arcline Stand. The Thunderbolt 3 port is also very versatile so it allows notebook connections or transmit 4K content with just a single wire.

Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA said, "Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month, yet it's one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired". LG didn't share any more information on Nano IPS nor any pricing or availability details on these displays with us, but we'll probably hear all that at CES. That means you can plug in a Thunderbolt 3-compatible laptop like a MacBook Pro 15 to charge your computer over the same cable used to plug into the monitor.
