LG not only presented new OLED TVs at CES 2021, but also an OLED monitor. The new LG UltraFine 32EP950 will have a resolution of 4K and will probably serve the upper price segment.
The LG UltraFine 32EP950 is quite out of the ordinary, the OLED monitors are still a rarity. There are reasons for this: When working on the PC, static content dominates and that is precisely the Achilles heel of OLED displays, because burn-in can occur. This risk is much higher when working on a PC than when watching films, series and other TV shows.
Nevertheless, LG now wants to score with the new LG UltraFine 32EP950, which has a resolution of 4K / UHD. Unfortunately, we don’t yet know whether HDR is also on board. It is clear that the monitor also has a connection for USB Type-C with Power Delivery (90 watts) on the back. There are also three ports for USB Type-A on board. In addition, thanks to the KVM switch, two connected systems can be operated with the same mouse and keyboard without having to switch them.
The OLED monitor from LG offers one HDMI and two DisplayPort video connections. Both DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB should be covered as color spaces to 99%. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about the other technical data at the moment. For gamers, for example, the response times and the refresh rate would be exciting aspects.
LG UltraFine 32EP950: What will it cost?
LG is also currently ignoring a price and an availability date. We don’t even know which versions the DisplayPort and HDMI ports correspond to. HDMI 2.1 would certainly please many users. The fact that LG has not emphasized this so far suggests that HDMI 2.0 will probably still be used. As soon as we have more information, we will of course keep you up to date.
