The new DualUp (28MQ780) monitor from LG looks like a large PC display rotated to a portrait (vertical) orientation, a feature that's been around a long time. But the way it's designed to work, it can act as if it were a pair of 21.5-inch monitors stacked one above the other, which instantly makes it an interesting and innovative solution for any desktop where space is limited but more screen real estate is needed.

This new design features a 16:18 aspect ratio, it's almost square. The native resolution is 2560 x 2880, which gets split in half, creating the equivalent of dual 21.5", 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution monitors.

The monitor's Nano IPS panel also enhances the visual experience for work and entertainment by making color expressions more accurate and richer. Users can enjoy HDR content on this monitor with the DCI-P3 98% color gamut that delivers detailed, accurate, and vibrant color expression. HDR delivers a more dramatic, dynamic, and immersive visual experience.

Boosting productivity, the LG DualUp Monitor elevates user comfort with the ultra-adjustable LG Ergo stand, which saves space as it clamps securely to most desks and tables. The Ergo Stand has evolved from the previous stand and includes enhanced tilting, swiveling, and extracting features. The wide range of positions it provides allows users to customize the height, angle, and depth of the monitor to the most ergonomic position for their body. 

The DualUp supports USB Type-C™ with up to 90W power delivery, allowing users to seamlessly connect to external devices, charge a laptop and more. Additionally, through its multiport for HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 3.0, users can connect multiple devices at once. The DualUp monitor supports 7Wx2ch stereo speakers with Waves MaxxAudio®, delivering realistic sound effects and powerful audio. The speaker delivers massive bass that can boost the quality of what users watch, play, and create, and can maximize space usability for creators and developers.
