LG has just teased that they will unveil two new ultrawide monitors at CES 2019.

First up is the gargantuan 49WL95C. This is a 49-inch monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio. It uses an IPS panel which has a resolution of dual QHD or 5,120 x 1,440 pixels. This is as good as having two 27-inch 1440p displays side by side.

It supports 99% of the sRGB color space and is HDR10 compatible, making it ideal for watching the latest HDR videos and playing the hottest HDR games. Brightness is rated at 350 nits.

Inputs include a single USB-C port, two HDMI ports, and a single DisplayPort. It also functions as a USB hub as it offers four USB 3.0 ports.

The 49WL95C will be available in Singapore sometime in August. Pricing has yet to be confirmed but don't expect it to come cheap so start saving up now. You have at least three months.

It has a 38-inch Nano IPS panel with an aspect ratio of 21:9 that supports a resolution of 3,840 x 1,600 pixels. It is also capable of showing up to 98% of the DCI-P3 color space.

As befits a gaming monitor, it supports NVIDIA G-Sync and has a high refresh rate of 144Hz.

The two monitors will be officially unveiled at CES 2019 which begins next month on 8 January.
