LG is planning not one, not two, but four different UltraFine display models leveraging high-contrast, inky-black OLED panels. The South Korean electronics giant confirmed the complete UltraFine Display OLED Pro family during a recent digital conference, which included a specifications sheet detailing two 31.5-inch models (32EP950, 32BP95E) and two 27-inch models (27EP950, 27BP95E). These “E” variants are unique in that they include self-calibration features for color accuracy and a protection hood to block out external, ambient light.
“[…] all OLED monitors in the series should offer 10-bit color depth and a very high contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1 thanks to OLED,” ComputerBase noted in its coverage. “The brightness should reach a typical value of 250 cd/m² and selectively up to 540 cd/m². This clears the hurdle of 400 cd / m² for the VESA standard DisplayHDR 400 True Black.”
“[…] there is also agreement in the product family with two DisplayPort, one HDMI, one USB-C with up to 90 watts, three USB-A sockets and a headphone output. The options for aligning the display, including height adjustment and pivot, but without horizontal swiveling are also identical. The light protection hood is again only available as an accessory for the BP95E models with self-calibration.”
LG’s UltraFine Display OLED Pro monitors should be available beginning this summer for around 3,000 to 4,000 euros, which translates to around $3,575 to $4,766, respectively. According to an early listing on popular Manhattan-based electronics retailer B&H Photo, LG’s 27-inch 27EP950-B will cost $2,996.99.
