LG has announced two new models for its UltraFine OLED Pro series of professional monitors next year, the 31.5-inch UltraFine OLED Pro 32BP95E and the 27-inch UltraFine OLED Pro 27BP95E. The two new models share many of their features with the 31.5 incher introduced in early 2021 UltraFine OLED Pro 32EP950 - so they too feature 4K UltraHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution, 10-bit color depth, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, and excellent color space coverage of both 99% of the professional DCI-P3 and AdobeRGB color spaces ( here our basic article on DCI-P3 as well as other color spaces).
The basis of this performance is again the self-emitting 10-bit OLED display, which allows independent dimming control (OLED Pixel Dimming HDR) of each of the more than eight million pixels, helping to eliminate the annoying halo effect that is common with HDR LCD displays.
The OLED technology used, which ensures that each pixel corresponds to an LED and can be controlled individually, enables not only the high contrast ratio but also a very good display of HDR content, guaranteeing both UltraFine OLED Pro models a DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification. LG does not yet provide any information about the brightness of the two new displays, but it should be at least as high as that of the previous model with 540 nits.
However, the new models also feature improvements over their predecessor: for example, both - in contrast to the 32EP950 - are equipped with removable self-calibration sensors as well as a monitor hood. Working in conjunction with LG&s free Calibration Studio software, the calibration sensor measures the light emitted by the display at fixed, user-specified times and automatically makes the necessary adjustments to ensure a high level of color accuracy and consistency. To prevent annoying reflections and glare from external light sources, the supplied hood can be attached.
As with the 32EP950, the interfaces of the UltraFine OLED Pro32BP95E and UltraFine OLED Pro 27BP95E include a USB Type-C port, which can be used to power notebooks with 90W of charging current, as well as two DisplayPorts, an HDMI port, and one USB 3.0 upstream and three downstream ports. It is not clear if the two new ones also have the KVM functionality of the predecessor. The two can be adjusted in height, rotation (including pivot) and tilt.
The LG UltraFine OLED Pro32BP95E and the UltraFine OLED Pro 27BP95E will be shipped worldwide starting next month - LG hasn&t announced the price yet, but it should (for the 31.5" model at least) be based on the price of the predecessor 32EP950 of currently around 3,000 euros or even be a bit more expensive due to the additional features.
