No. What you see here is not a two-monitor setup. Neither image stretched horizontally. It is one single UltraWide computer monitor from LG. Set to debut at CES 2019 are the 49-inch LG UltraWide Monitor (49WL95) and the 38-inch UltraGear Gaming Monitor (38GL950G) that offers an incredibly expansive aspect ratio of 32:9 and 21:9, respectively. And they are both curved monitor. That kind of makes Philips Momentum 43-inch 4K LED Monitor seems a tad small, isn’t it?
However, 49-inch behemoth isn’t all that new; Samsung already lead the crazy size monitor in 2017. Anywho, in case you are wondering… UltraWide is geared at productivity (you know, video editing, spread sheet and whatnot) while UltraGear is designed with gaming in mind. Here’s a run down of the specifications of the two monitors:

And those, my friends, are really what you need to know. Exactly when the pair will be available and how much they will cost are not known yet. But if you want to see them first, be sure to hit up LG booth at CES 2019, booth #11100 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, to see it in flesh.
