LG presents a 40-inch ultra-wide curved monitor with a 5K resolution and Thunderbolt 4 support
With a resolution of 5,120 x 2,160 pixels, the LG UltraWide 40WP95C is one wide monitor. Strictly speaking a 5K2K display, a conventional 5K resolution measures 5,120 x 2,880, the 40WP95C measures 39.7-inches diagonally, which LG markets as 40-inches. The 40WP95C is also a curved monitor that has a 21:9 aspect ratio.
The Nano IPS panel offers a pixel density of 139 PPI too, along with colour space coverages of 135% sRGB and 98% DCI-P3. Moreover, the 40WP95C has a peak refresh rate of 72 Hz and grey-to-grey response times of 5 ms. Additionally, LG claims that the panel is HDR10 certified and that it supports AMD Radeon FreeSync.
LG is yet to state how bright the 40WP95C gets, but it does have a Thunderbolt 4 port that can supply power, video and access to a built-in USB hub. Likewise, it is unknown what video outputs the 40WP95C has, but at least DisplayPort and HDMI should be available.
We expect that the 40WP95C will also be mighty expensive, given how much LG charges for its high-end curved monitors. Nonetheless, it will probably be excellent for productivity.
