Dell is introducing its new UltraSharp 49 Curved Monitor — The dream display for multitaskers. It’s also the first monitor to ship with dual QHD resolution. That’s 5120 horizontal pixels by 1440 vertical pixels.
If you’ve been using a dual-monitor setup, this is the monitor you want to get. Sporting a 32:9 aspect ratio, the Dell U4919DW monitor is like having two side-by-side 27-inch monitors without having bezels getting in between.
At 109 pixels-per-inch, the new display uses an IPS panel that covers 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut, which makes it an ideal display for content creators working with videos and photos.
Although you’re not getting super-fast refresh rates and low latency, the Dell UltraSharp U4919DW monitor works at 60Hz with a 5ms response time (when using the fast mode), which isn’t bad. This means that you can game on it, but it’s not designed for gaming.
As for ports, you’re getting HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB Type-C. In addition, the U4919DW monitor includes a KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) functionality. This means that you can connect a computer using the USB Type-C port and a second device using one of the remaining ports, and then, you can control both devices using the Dell Display Manager app.
The new monitor is expected to launch on October 26, and it won’t come cheap. If you want this 49-inch display, you’ll be spending $1699.99.
