LG teases new Apple-compatible Thunderbolt 3 monitors including '5K UltraWide' model

LG is set to show off two new Thunderbolt 3 monitors at this January's Consumer Electronics Show, including the company's first 21:9 "5K UltraWide" display.

The 34WK95U is a 34-inch model with 5,120-by-2,160 resolution, high dynamic range, and LG's "Nano IPS" technology, which is said to boost the "intensity and purity" of colors. Thunderbolt 3 lets the monitor handle 5K images at 60 hertz, and connect laptops like the MacBook Pro without an additional power source.

The 32UK950 will offer a similar featureset, but in a more conventional aspect ratio and with a slightly smaller 32-inch screen. The display is said to hit 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut, with peak brightness of 600 nits, and support a second 4K monitor through daisy-chaining.

LG will also present a Quad HD (2,560-by-1,440) gaming monitor, the 34GK950G, but there are no images of the device and its only other announced features include Nano IPS and Nvidia's G-Sync technology.

Pricing and release dates all three monitors will presumably be announced at CES.

There are relatively few Thunderbolt 3 monitors on the market. LG's flagship product in this area is the UltraFine 5K.
