LG Unveils World’s First 21:9 Wider Than Widescreen Monitor

If you like your screens to be wide — and I mean really wide — then checkout LG’s new EA93 panoramic desktop monitor. It boasts a 29-inch display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, making it significantly wider than your average 16:9 widescreen display. It also features a 2,560 x 1,080 high-definition resolution, and built-in stereo speakers.

Despite all this, the EA93 sports a super slim bezel and still looks nice and thin. It offers a Super Energy Savings feature that promises to draw around 25% less electricity than monitors of an equivalent size, and 100% sRGB color expression. On its back end, you’ll find a DVI-D Dual port, two HDMI ports, three USB 3.0 ports, a Display Port, an audio in jack, and a headphone out jack.

It’s packing a lot of features, then, but it gets even more interesting when you look at its software. The EA93 ships with an application that allows you to split the display into four smaller screens. That means you could watch a movie in one of them, keep an eye on your Twitter feed in the other, and use the other two for work — not that you’re going to get much done with so much going on.

LG’s new monitor is now available in its homeland of Korea for 690,000 won (approx. $633). It’ll be available globally later this year.
