LG's 2023 SMART Monitors don't require any PC connection; can even function as smart home hubs
LG Electronics has unveiled its 2023 LG SMART Monitor lineup that includes two models - 32SR50F and 27SR50F. The new 31.5- and 27-inch monitors don't require any PC connection at all, and can also function as smart home hubs.
The new LG SMART Monitors will be released in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America, with availability starting in the U.S. this November.
The 2023 LG SMART Monitors feature the in-house webOS 23 platform, which provides easy access to streaming apps that provide tailored recommendations for movies, series and music from the Home Board screen, and personalized sports profiles. Additionally, the LG Mood Music function serves as a personal DJ, providing curating playlists based on the user’s musical preferences.
LG SMART Monitors come with a 3-sided virtually borderless design and high-performance IPS displays with HDR 10 support. For those working from home, the monitors come with built-in LG Home Office software that supports various productivity programs including Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar.
The new lineup further enhances workflow and eliminates the need to connect directly to a PC by allowing users to easily share content from their smart devices via AirPlay 2 and Miracast. The new LG SMART Monitors can even function as smart home hubs, with support for LG's ThinQ Home Hub, allowing users to monitor and manage their home appliances. Through the ThinQ app, the monitors can connect with various IoT-compatible household appliances.
"The LG SMART Monitor series is designed with a focus on meeting the personal preferences and unique demands of various kinds of users. Moving forward, LG plans to introduce new SMART Monitors that will be able to accommodate an even broader range of lifestyle needs," said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company.
