The DualUp monitor addresses a wide range of hardcore multitasking and home professional jobs.
Ahead of CES 2022, LG has unveiled two exciting monitors for next year. These include the DualUp monitor with an unconventional double-deck form factor and an UltraFine display that is LG’s first to use an IPS Nano Black panel.
LG will reveal pricing and availability details for DualUp and UltraFine Display at CES 2022 on January 4.
LG DualUp Monitor (28MQ780)
The LG DualUp is an extra-tall, nearly boxy 16:18 monitor with a 27.6-inch Nano IPS display that the company claims offers as much screen space as two 21.5-inch displays.
The LG DualUp monitor targets home-based professionals who can use it to accommodate more on a single screen or use it as two monitors in a split-screen mode. LG presents this as a multitasking powerhouse that will help reduce side-to-side movements, which the company says is the leading cause of neck pain.
There’s also the space-saving LG Ergo mount that comes with a swivel arm for easy positioning. Ports and connectivity options include two HDMI ports, three USB ports, a display port, and a USB-C port that supports Power Delivery (PD).
However, the DualUp monitor’s specifications won’t be particularly appealing to creative professionals. The double has QHD resolution (2560 x 2880) and reaches a maximum brightness of 300 Nits. On the positive side, the monitor covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
Either way, the dual-stack display form factor should fit the workflow of many home-based folks and will be the ones to primarily consider whether the price is right.

LG UltraFine display (32UQ85R)
LG UltraFine sticks to the conventional form factor and has slightly better credentials for attracting creative professionals. This one has a 31.5-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) screen that covers 98% of the DCI-P3 and has a 2000: 1 contrast ratio.
LG says it is using a Nano IPS Black panel for the first time. Compared with the normal Nano IPS LCD panel, it can better portray blacks and near black regions. The monitor also ships with a removable self-calibrating sensor.
