Correction (Monday, December 20, 2021): It appears as though LG relatively quietly introduced a 27” model of its UltraFine OLED Pro monitor earlier this year, but as of now it’s still only available to pre-order at this time, so it hasn’t actually made it to market. The original headline and parts of this article stated the 27″ model was new. We have updated both to correct this information.
LG has announced the details of its next-generation UltraFine OLED Pro monitors, revealing the 2022 models will include built-in colorimeters for on-device hardware color calibration.
The 2022 UltraFine OLED Pro lineup, which is designed with photographers, videographers and visual artists and mind, will come in a 32” version (32BP95E) and a 27” version (27BP95E). Despite their size difference, the two models will be identical, with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a 1ms response time. LG says both monitors cover 99% DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color spaces, support the DisplayHDR 400 True Black specification and offer 60Hz refresh rates.
New this year to both models is a built-in, detachable colorimeter, which works alongside integrated software to auto-calibrate the monitors, as we’ve seen with Eizo for years and Dell more recently. Connectivity on the 32” model includes one HDMI input, two DisplayPort 1.4 inputs, 1 USB Type-B (USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1) input, three USB Type-A (USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1) downstream outputs, one USB Type-C input/output with 90W power delivery for charging laptops and tablets while connected, a 3.5mm audio output and a power adapter port.
Below is the spec sheet, as provided by LG:
LG hasn’t listed pricing yet for either model at this time. However, last year’s 32” model retails for $4,000 and the 27” model released at a later date and is still unable to be purchased, retails for $3,000. So, it’s likely these new models will follow that pricing scheme.
