Besides new Latitude laptops Dell also unveiled several new monitors, including some designed for video conferencing one some for interactive presentations.
Let’s start with the Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD Monitor (U4021QW), the world’s first 40” ultra wide curved monitor with 5K resolution (5,120 x 2,160 px), according to Dell. Its IPS panel boasts 100% sRGB and 98% DCI-P3 coverage and can render 1.07 billion colors.
The port selection on the monitor is equally impressive. The Thunderbolt 3 offers transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps and can charge your Windows laptop or MacBook at up to 90W. There’s also a USB-C port with 15W charging for your phone. It’s easily accessible and there’s a full size USB-A port next to, perfect for removable storage. You can also plug in an Ethernet jack and get wired connectivity (faster and more stable than Wi-Fi).
The monitor can act as a KVM too, meaning that you connect multiple computers (or computer + phone) to the monitor and use the same keyboard and mouse for both. Watch the video for more details. By the way, this monitor won a CES 2021 Innovation award.
If the 40” version is too rich for your blood (prices below), the Dell UltraSharp 38 Curved USB-C Hub Monitor (U3821DW) is a more affordable version. It has a 38” 3,840 x 1,600 px IPS panel and while the Thunderbolt port is missing, there’s still a USB-C with Power Delivery. Both monitors also has two 9W integrated speakers.
For multi-monitor setups you can pick up the Dell UltraSharp 24 and 27 USB-C Hub Monitors (U2422HE/U2722DE). Those do output 90W over USB-C, meaning they can power pretty beefy laptops, and also feature Ethernet ports.
The pandemic made video conferencing explode in popularity. The next three monitors – 24”, 27” and 34” – are designed specifically with that in mind. They have pop-up 5 MP cameras, noise-canceling microphones and dual 5W speakers. A dedicated Microsoft Teams button allows you to quickly jump into a meeting. The monitors support Windows Hello login and the Cortana digital assistant.
If you do meet in person, check out the Dell 4K Interactive Touch Monitors come in 55” and 65”. They can detect 20 touch points, so they can be used by multiple people simultaneously (palm rejection is included to avoid accidental touches). Dual 20W speakers are built in.
Finally, a few accessories. The rechargeable wireless mouse (MS7421W) can last up to 6 months on a single charge. The wireless keyboard and mouse combo (KM7321W) boasts an amazing battery life of 36 months.
