The emergence of Smart TVs changed the home entertainment sector forever. You get near-instant access to movies, music, and other media types because no additional devices are necessary. Smart TVs have progressed in recent years to the point that some models (from LG and Samsung) now include cloud gaming, with access to platforms such as Xbox and GeForce NOW.
LG Electronics just launched its new Smart Monitor series for the global market. The new LG SMART Monitor lineup comprises 31.5-inch and 27-inch (32SR50F and 27SR50F) models that follow Smart TVs’ footsteps by providing a PC-free experience. Here’s everything you need to know!
The LG SMART Monitors 2023 is powered by the in-house webOS 23 platform, allowing quick access to streaming applications that deliver tailored suggestions for movies, series, and music from the Home Board screen and personalized sports profiles. Furthermore, the LG Mood Music feature acts as a personal DJ, generating playlists depending on the user’s musical tastes.
They have high-quality screens and HDR 10 support for beautiful pictures. It guarantees that image quality is good for conference calls, document editing, and online surfing. The 27-inch model has a clean, frameless appearance that adds sophistication to your workstation.
LG SMART Monitors have a borderless 3-sided design and high-performance IPS screens with HDR 10 compatibility. For people who work from home, the displays have LG Home Office software, which supports a variety of productivity tools such as Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar.
They can also function as smart home hubs, allowing you to monitor and manage household appliances via LG’s ThinQ Home Hub. Connecting to IoT-compatible equipment such as refrigerators and washing machines is part of this.
LG Smart Monitors provides a high-performance work display and LG’s webOS multimedia streaming platform. As a result, all-in-one displays are perfect for work and streaming and smaller locations such as home offices or dorm rooms.

The two monitors, loaded with LG WebOS 23, feature LG ThinQ, allowing these models to operate as a hub for the company’s smart home goods, allowing you to control them remotely from these displays. Amazon Alexa is also supported.
