Dell this week unveiled a series of new monitors, including the UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD Monitor, which will arrive January 28 at a price tag of US$2,099.
It’s built-in Thunderbolt 3 port allows the UltraSharp 40 to be connected to a compatible Mac with a single cable, and the monitor can power a MacBook Pro with up to 90W of pass-through charging. As noted by MacRumors, along with LG’s ultrawide 34-inch 5K2K monitor from 2018, the UltraSharp 40 is one of the only ultrawide monitors with Retina-like quality, with most having a lower QHD resolution of 2560×1440.
A recipient of a CES 2021 Innovation Award of this week’s (virtual), Consumer Electronics Show here’s how the display is described: “The impressive Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD Monitor is the world’s first 40-inch ultrawide curved WUHD (5K2K) monitor for immersive productivity. This curved display delivers excellent front of screen performance with a wide color coverage for precise color. Designed with wellness in mind, it features ComfortView Plus, an always-on built-in low blue light screen that reduces harmful blue light emissions while maintaining color accuracy. To drive multitasking efficiency, this expansive monitor is packed with productivity features including PIP/PBP/KVM and serves as a connectivity hub with Thunderbolt 3, RJ45 (Ethernet), USB 10Gbps ports and more.”
