LG announced the UltraFine 32EP950 monitor at CES 2021. The monitor is built with creators in mind and delivers deep blacks and an incredible static contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1. LG hasn't shared any details regarding availability or pricing for the UltraFine 32EP950 at this time.
OLED monitors are relatively rare. OLED technology is common in phones and TVs, but generally speaking, it isn't that common in monitors. There are some on the market, such as the Alienware 55 OLED gaming monitor, but that was the first of its kind and only came out last year.
As pointed out by Tom's Hardware, OLED technology is prone to screen burn-in. While many phones are replaced before burn-in is a factor, monitors can be used for years. Even with the risk of burn-in, an OLED monitor has advantages that are quite alluring to creators.
The UltraFine 32EP950 is a 31.5-inch 4K monitor with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. It covers 99 percent of both the AdobeRGB color space and the DCI-P3 color gamut. It also boasts an incredible static contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1.
The monitor has two DisplayPort inputs, a USB-C input with 90W power delivery, an HDMI port, an audio jack, and a three-port USB hub.
If you're looking for a gaming monitor, LG also announced an update to the LG 27GN950 gaming monitor. The monitor supports HDMI 2.1, has a 4K resolution, and has a refresh rate of 160 Hz. It covers 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It also does not have any pricing or availability information at this time.
