Dell announces 5K2K curved screen


At this year's CES 2021, DELL announced the ultraSharp curve screen 40 Curved WUHD U4021QW, which claims to be the world's first ultra-wide 5K2K curved screen.

Dell has also announced many other screens before CES 2021, featuring the custom Microsoft Teams button and designed with video conferencing in mind.

The UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD U4021QW was awarded the CES 2021 Innovation Award.

The screen features ComfortView Plus, a compact, low-light blue display that always works to reduce harmful blue light emissions while keeping colors accurate.

If you're wondering, 5K2K means 5120×2160 pixels, which means it has the same number of vertical pixels as any typical 4K display, but with a very wide display-to-height ratio of 21:9.

By the standards of most screens, the screen has a large number of pixels.

UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD U4021QW has a full range of ports, including a Thunderbolt 3 port that can power a MacBook compatible with up to 90 watts of power.

Other ports include a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, four USB Type-A ports at data speeds of up to 10 Gbps, an Ethernet port, a 3.5mm headphone port, and a USB Type-B port.

At the bottom of the screen is an additional USB-C port and a 10Gbps USB-A port.

It has a response time of 5 milliseconds, and the refresh rate is only 60 Hz, which is slightly lower than gaming screens, which means that the screen may be more suitable for productive tasks.

The UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD U4021QW features a 10-bit screen covering 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color area and 100 percent of the sRGB color space.

Dell is not the first to announce a display of this resolution, with LG introducing a 34-inch display in 2017, but the new Dell display is larger and curved, making it boast its first place in the world.

The UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD U4021QW will go on sale on January 28, with prices starting at $2,100.
