LG is planning to release four monitors with OLED panels this year. These are 4K models of 27 and 32 inches, mainly intended for graphic professionals.
Two variants of each size will be available. The main difference between the two manufacturers is the ability to self-calibrate. These are the 32BP95E and the 27BP95E, writes ComputerBase. Furthermore, the two monitors offer the possibility to connect a monitor hood, and the design is slightly different.
Apart from that, the two monitors are the same as the 32EP950 and 27EP950 announced at CES. These are LG’s first OLED monitors, with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. LG claims that the 10-bit monitors can achieve a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and display a maximum brightness of 250 nits over the entire panel. However, peak brightnesses of up to 540 nits are achievable, making the screens compliant with the DisplayHDR 400 standard. LG claims the monitors can display 99 percent of both AdobeRGB and DCI-P3. Also, they have a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a response time of 1ms.
In terms of connections, the monitors can also compete with the top. Besides the two DisplayPort connections and HDMI port, the monitors also offer a USB-C port that can provide 90 watts to a connected laptop. This also allows the monitors to be used as a dock. There are also three USB-A ports and a headphone jack on the back of the monitor. Peripheral devices can be connected there. The stand offers the possibility to adjust the height and to rotate the monitor vertically.
The four monitors are expected to be available starting this summer. Only the 32EP950 has a known recommended retail price of 3999 euro. ComputerBase says that a spokesperson from LG also mentioned prices between 3000 and 4000 euros. However, the 32BP95E will likely be more expensive than the 32EP950 and therefore fall outside that price range.
