LG's new curved device is a 34-inch ultrawide display


Does anybody know if LG and Samsung are looking for a new tagline? Because we'd like to suggest "Real manufacturers have curves," if so. LG, for one, is slated to unveil a 21:9 ultrawide IPS monitor (model 34UC97) at IFA 2014, which (unlike the flatter 21:9 screen the company released a year ago) is just as curved as the G Flex. The 34-inch QHD (3440 x 1440 pixels) LED display is just a bit larger than Asus' similarly curved 32-inch one, touted the largest of its kind when it was announced in June. It's compatible with both PC and Mac, supports Thunderbolt 2 connection, has a 7W speaker system onboard and promises the ability to easily handle heavy graphics and videos. As a plus for those who need a really large screen space, several of these assemble quite nicely into a large, curved multi-monitor set-up, as you can see after the break.

LG's also showcasing two other monitors at IFA 2014, the first being a 31-inch 4K beast with movie/video editors in mind. The other one is meant for gaming rigs with its 144Hz refresh rate and an LG technology that cuts input lags. Sadly, the company doesn't have release dates or prices yet (take note that its 55-inch curved OLED screen cost a whopping $15,000 at launch, now lowered to $3,300 at Best Buy), but you can see all three from September 5th to 10th during the event in Berlin.
