Newly announced LG DualUp Monitor is amazing and weird

LG DualUp Monitor

LG has announced details of some of its 2022 range of monitors, due to be properly unveiled at CES in January. By far the most interesting is the LG DualUp Monitor with the rather extraordinary aspect ratio of 16:18.

As you may have calculated, this is essentially two 16:9 monitors merged into one, eliminating the border that would ordinarily appear between two seperate screens. With a resolution of 2560 x 2880, the DualUp monitor is great for multi-taskers, and while the specs are not mind-blowing, it's a screen that's interesting enough to warrant a second look.

LG says of the unique DualUp: "A multitasking powerhouse ideal for all kinds of tasks such as content creation and coding, LG DualUp Monitor features a Nano IPS display with a unique 16:18 aspect ratio -- a completely new format in the monitor market".

The company continues:

LG DualUp Monitor

The innovative Square Double QHD (2,560 x 2,880) resolution monitor offers the same screen real estate as two 21.5-inch displays and has a vertical split view function that lets users see more in one glance. Boosting productivity and convenience, the LG 28MQ780 elevates user comfort with the ultra-adjustable LG Ergo stand which saves space as it clamps securely to most desks and tables. And the double height screen of LG DualUp Monitor reduces side-to-side head movements, the main cause of neck pain.

There's no word on pricing or a release date, but such a unique product is unlikely to be a budget option.
