LG announces HDR10 and 4K-enabled 34UM79M, 34UC99, and 32UD99 monitors
South Korean manufacturer LG will be showing off at least three monitors next month with native 4K UHD, HDR10, and built-in Chromecast streaming.
The first monitor is the 32-inch 32UD99 that covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space to appeal to graphic artists and professional users. The monitor will make use of USB Type-C for both data transfers and charging capabilities. Built-in audio will be branded as "LG Rich Bass" to accentuate the supposedly above average bass reproduction that nearly all built-in monitor speakers typically lack.
The second monitor is the ultrawide 21:9 34-inch 34UM79M that will be the first multimedia monitor with Google Chromecast for easy streaming of movies, music, and games. The monitor will also allow for multi-tasking between connected PCs and mobile devices.
Lastly, the 34-inch 34UC99 will cater specifically to gamers with its 1 ms response times to reduce motion blur and support for AMD FreeSync to reduce screen tearing. This particular monitor will likely compete against the recently announced AOC Agon AG251FZ that also carries similar specifications but with even more features.
Prices and availability for the monitors have not been officially announced, but more details will likely be revealed in the coming weeks.
