New displays with other aspect ratios beyond the usual 16:9 are being introduced into the market these days. There are 32:9 displays on the market as well as Apple’s MacBook Pro with a 14:9 display. LG has now taken it a step further and released the LG DualUp Monitor, with model number 28Q780, which is the world’s first 16:18 aspect ratio display.
The LG DualUp display isn’t exactly square in design, but it does have a 2560-pixel width. While 32:8 monitors are designed to replace two side-by-side monitors, LG’s new 16:18 monitor is designed to replace two 2560 x 1440-pixel LCDs one above the other that are utilized by designers and developers.
Given that the display isn’t aimed at gamers or media junkies, the display isn’t very impressive. It has a screen resolution of 2560 x 2880 pixels, a brightness of 300 nits, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio.
In addition, the monitor has a 60Hz refresh rate and a GtG reaction time of 5ms. The color range is limited to 98 percent DCI-P3, and the LCD panel supports HDR10.
One DisplayPort, two HDMI, and one USB-C input with a 96W power delivery connector are included. It also has a vertical split view feature that allows users to utilize it with two computers at the same time. A dual-port USB hub and two MaxxAudio-designed 7W speakers are also included.
The LG DualUp monitor is mounted on an LG Ergo stand, which can be adjusted in height, tilt, swivel, and even pivot, and is firmly attached to a desk. It will also be available in 2022, according to the manufacturer.
