LG has the GramLaptopseries announced for 2022

Tech Highlights:

  • All the new models feature Intel’s 12th Gen processors alongside Gen4 NVMe SSDs and low voltage LPDDR5 RAM. LG says this gives them a performance boost of around 22 per cent compared to 2021’s Gram notebooks. All models utilise 16:10 aspect ratio WQXGA IPS panels at 2560 x 1600 resolution. The new displays promise sharp, vibrant images with high brightness and 99 per cent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space.

  • The LG Gram series laptops have long been a favourite among those looking for the best of both worlds: mobility and performance. LG has now unveiled their 2022 Gram portfolio, which includes seven new models. A 17-inch, 16-inch, 15-inch, and 14-inch model, as well as two convertible 2-in-1 versions and a portable monitor, are all part of the new selection.

The new Gram models benefit from something called LG Glance by Mirametrix. Designed to enhance security for those working remotely, and also save battery life, LG Glance automatically locks the screen if the user walks away from their laptop. It can also detect if someone is peeking at the screen over their shoulder.

In addition, the new models have improved webcam features for video conferencing and meet the stringent US military durability standard MIL-STD-810G, so should be ready for whatever life can throw at them. Finally, LG introduced a portable 16-inch monitor that connects via a single USB-C cable. It can be used horizontally or vertically to extend your workspace and features a 32:10 IPS display.

Another cool trick offered by LG Glance comes when you have an external display attached, it can track your eyes to see when you focus on the other display and automatically move the mouse cursor and current window over there. Great idea, we’ll be interested to see how well it works in the real world.

We don’t have exact dates just yet, but LG says its new Gram notebooks will be rolling out in North America, Europe and Asia in Q2 2022.

The former is the fancier offering, a 32-inch display with a 4K panel that should offer pinpoint accuracy and stunning colours, but it’s the DualUp that looks more risky and innovative. It brings a wild 16:18 aspect ratio to effectively offer a shape that looks like two monitors on top of each other, letting you multitask vertically rather than horizontally.

It’s a novel look, and one that we can certainly see some people finding highly useful as they work, and apparently offers the same screen space as two 21.5-inch displays. It could work great for anyone with limited desk space who likes the idea of having more screen to work with. Both monitors will get explored during LG’s presentations at CES 2022, although if you want to dive into their exact specs now you can check out LG’s own release on them right here.
