At a time when the main trend in monitors is a wider screen, LG decided to “go the other way” and released the LG DualUp – a monitor whose screen is larger than wide.

LG DualUp (28MQ780) is a 28-inch monitor with a resolution of 2560×2880 pixels, or Square Double QHD, as it is called by the manufacturer. The screen area is the same as the two conventional 21.5” monitors, which are placed one above the other. The company’s panel is made of Nano IPS technology and can display 98% of the DCI-P3’s color space. The monitor is equipped with two HDMI video inputs and one DisplayPort, as well as a USB hub for two USB 3.0 ports plus USB Type-C with charging support (90 W).

According to the manufacturer, LG DualUp offers a revolutionary approach to creativity using two work screens at the same time instead of placing two open windows next to each other, the new monitor does so “vertically”. Well, at least this option allows you to look a little less when switching between programs, but whether it is more convenient in real work. You can only find out by trying in person.

LG DualUp is already available to order on the official website and through the company’s dealer network at the recommended price €699 (or $699).
