[THE INVESTOR] LG Electronics has released an ultra-wide 38-inch computer monitor, it said on Oct. 18.

With a 21:9 aspect ratio, it is expected to allow users to better work on multi-screen jobs, LG said in a statement. Users can resize and display multiple windows at once and customize the monitor layout for multi-screen work, it said.

The monitor also features a resolution of 3440x1440 pixels, about three times clearer than a full high-definition monitor, according to the statement. 

The price for the monitor was set at 1.59 million won (US$1,404). The global market for monitors with a 21:9 aspect ratio grew about 80 percent last year, LG said. Since 2013, LG has maintained its No. 1 spot in the global market for monitors.
