Samsung and LG are set to launch new high resolution ultrawide monitors in 2016, Ars Technica reported.

LG’s upcoming LM375UW1 is a 37.5-inch panel with a 2.4:1 aspect ratio that runs at a resolution of 3,840×1,600 pixels.

The LM375UW1 won’t be geared towards gaming as it has a 14ms response rate, but similar gaming-focused displays are expected to appear later.

Samsung has an as-yet unnamed 41-inch ultrawide 32:9 monitor in the works.

It will also produce a 49-inch version of the display, with both monitors running at higher than full HD.

While the specs and resolution of Samsung’s displays haven’t been confirmed, Ars Technica calculated a 32:9 aspect ratio to work out to a 3,840×1,080 resolution.
