Dell has launched two of its new displays, a 24-inch 4K UltraHD display boasting a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and 32-inch 4K UltraHD display having the same resolution as the latter. Dell has also announced the launch of another 28-inch 4K display but users will have to wait for this particular display until 2014.
While all three displays have the same 3840 x 2160 resolution, the pixel densities is not, ranging from a reasonable 140 PPI for the 32-inch model to a 157 PPI for the upcoming 28-inch model and an even higher 185 PPI for the 24-inch model.
Both the 24-inch and 32-inch displays support refresh rates of 60 Hz over DisplayPort 1.2 and 30 Hz over HDMI, as well as a variety of ports including HDMI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, four USB 3.0 ports, and a media card reader. Both displays also offer height, tilt, and swivel adjustments.
Exact details on the upcoming 28-inch model have yet to be released, but Dell says that it will offer “the same incredible Ultra HD screen performance” as the other members of the 4K display family and will carry multiple input ports for flexible connectivity.
Dell’s new 4K displays arrive just as speculation regarding a potential 4K display from Apple has escalated ahead of the new Mac Pro launch later this month. Apple claims that the new Mac Pro is being able to drive up to three 4K displays, but the company has not made any announcements about its display plans. The recent introduction of new 4K display panels from AU Optronics fueled speculation that Apple could be nearing an introduction for new displays, but Dell’s displays may be the strongest hint yet that Apple may have something in the works given the two companies have typically used the same panel suppliers for their displays.
In terms of price, the 24-inch display has a price tag of $1399, the 32-inch model is priced at $3499 and the upcoming 28-inch monitor is supposedly being released along with a $1000 tag.
