Ahead of CES 2018, LG has given us a sneak peek of a few upcoming monitors — all of which feature cutting-edge technology to deliver imagery with unparalleled detail and fidelity. The trick behind these high-quality HDR displays is in a technology LG calls Nano IPS.

By applying nanometer-sized particles to the display panels themselves, LG claims their displays will absorb excess light wavelengths and deliver stunning picture quality. On top of that, each of these monitors will feature support for Thunderbolt 3 and HDR 600.

The first of LG’s 2018 monitor lineup is a 32-inch, UHD 4K monitor. It’s not unlike the recent LG 32UD99, but this one has a few new tricks up its sleeves. First off, it will be the first display to offer LG’s aforementioned, Nano IPS technology. By enhancing the intensity and purity of on-screen colors, LG claims this monitor will be able to deliver a more accurate and lifelike viewing experience. According to LG, the 32UK950 can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, putting it in league with the kinds of displays used to master Hollywood films.

The LG 32UK950 also features razor-slim bezels thanks to a 4-Side Edge Borderless design and a built-in Thunderbolt 3 dock. That means you can plug in a Thunderbolt 3-compatible laptop like a MacBook Pro 15 to charge your computer over the same cable used to plug into the monitor.

The second monitor LG is rolling out for 2018 is a massive 34-inch ultrawide monitor with a maximum resolution of 5,120 x 2,160. That’s right: This thing isn’t just an ultrawide, it’s a 5K ultrawide.

Featuring the same Nano IPS technology as the 32UK950, the 34WK95U offers unbelievable screen real estate and what LG calls “eye-popping” color reproduction. Additionally, thanks to its built-in Thunderbolt 3 dock, it can transmit 5K video over Thunderbolt 3 at 60Hz. Again, that means you’ll be able to plug in a powerful laptop and charge it right over the same cable that’s pouring 5K video into your display. No need for what LG calls “unsightly” laptop power adapters.

Just like the LG 32UK950, the 34WK95U features a 4-Side Borderless screen and a slim ArcLine stand, ensuring that this monitor is going to be a head turner even when it’s powered down.

LG 34GK950G

Alongside these two displays, LG is also rolling out a new 34-inch QHD gaming monitor, the 34GK950G.

The company didn’t offer as many details on this one, but we do know that it’ll offer the same Nano-IPS display technology. It’ll also come with support for Nvidia’s G-Sync, so games should both look great and run liquid-smooth. We haven’t received pricing or a release date yet, but we’ll get more details on the monitors when we go hands on with them at CES.
