DELL INTRODUCES 40-INCH ULTRAWIDE MONITOR WITH 5K2K RESOLUTION AT CES 2021


Dell launched its ultrawide curved monitor, the UltraSharp 40, at the CES 2021. The 40K curved WUHD monitor is the world’s first 40-inch ultrawide curved monitor to offer 5120 × 2160 resolution or 5K2K (WUHD). This monitor was part of a series of displays featured by Dell at the prestigious annual event. UltraSharp 40 or “U4021QW” comes with an ultrawide aspect ratio of 21:9, thus more viewing space than normal monitors. Its pixel resolution of 5120 × 2160 takes it to the level of a typical 4K screen but more accurately, it is around 140 pixels per inch (PPI). Thus, Dell is marketing the product for those who want higher resolution on a wider screen.


The monitor for Mac users comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port that has been built-in. This port will also help connect the monitor with any other compatible Mac device using a single cable. The port can be used to charge a MacBook Pro with up to 90W of pass-through charging too. Other than this, the Ultrasharp 40 comes with a plethora of connectivity options.

MacRumors points out that the monitor has two HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, and three 10 Gbps USB-A ports. Also, one 15 W USB-C port and a 10 Gbps USB-A port are present on the bottom of the monitor for quick access. Other than these, a USB Type-B upstream port, an Ethernet port, and a 3.5 mm headphone/ audio jack can also be found. The headphone jack is situated on the back of the monitor.


With a relatively average peak brightness of 300 nits, the monitor features a 10-bit display. The firm is yet to specify whether the monitor will have HDR support, but the product does have a quick 5 ms response time, KVM functionality, a 60Hz refresh rate, 2500 R curvature, along integrated 9W speakers
