LG has just teased the world's largest curved UltraWide monitor, with the introduction of its new 38-inch display, the 38UC99.




The new 38-inch curved UltraWide rocks a huge resolution of 3840x1600, so not quite 4K, but more than the 3440x1440 native resolution of popular 34-inch UltraWide monitors. LG's new 38UC99 display rocks an IPS panel with a wide color gamut covering 99% of the sRGB color space.


This means professionals and enthusiasts alike will enjoy the crystal clear images of the IPS panel, while the 3840x1600 resolution provides plenty of desktop real estate. It's also the first UltraWide monitor to feature USB Type-C connectivity, allowing you to connect your smartphone - like the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7, or a laptop into the display to charge or sync data.


There are 2 x 10W built-in Bluetooth-capable speakers, and a 1ms Motion Blur Reduction feature that "streamlines gameplay by minimizing afterimages that often occur in fast-paced games", and while it won't be as fast as 100-144Hz displays, the larger 38-inch panel with a higher 3840x1600 native resolution will be an interesting twist in the UltraWide display game.


LG hasn't announced an availability date on the new 38UC99, but the company will be showcasing it at IFA 2016 in Berlin between September 2-7.
