The concept of “smart monitors” equipped with their own operating system, by analogy with televisions, is gradually spreading among manufacturers. Samsung was the first to introduce such models back in 2020, and now LG is joining it with the LG 32SQ780S monitor.

The monitor uses a 32-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels and a refresh rate of 60 Hz, the color coverage is 90% DCI-P3. The leg is equipped with a bracket for attaching to the tabletop, without a stand, so the LG 32SQ780S will take up almost no space on the desktop.

From the video inputs, the monitor has 2 HDMI ports and one USB-C (with charging support, 65 W), there are built-in stereo speakers (2×5 W), and an Ethernet port. “Smart” functions are provided by the company’s proprietary television OS – webOS, which provides the ability to run Amazon, Apple TV, and Netflix streaming services without the need to use a PC. In addition, the LG 32SQ780S supports Apple AirPlay 2, which allows you to use the monitor to stream music and video from Apple devices.

LG 32SQ780S is coming soon, the cost will be $500.
