Dell is not quite finished with the high-resolution monitor releases it seems. Plans for a new 21:9 aspect ratio display have been discovered, reported to be 34 inches in size and packing a resolution of 3440 x 1440; 40% fewer pixels than 4K Ultra HD, but still larger than the 2560 x 1080 used on most current 21:9 displays.
It's said the display, which will be named the U3415W, contains an IPS LCD panel manufactured by LG, with the same vertical pixel count as many high-resolution WQHD (2560 x 1440) 16:9 monitors. The ultra-wide monitor with a pixel density of 110 PPI will be well suited for people wanting to use two applications side-by-side, or wishing to watch movies filmed in cinema widescreen.
The U3415W is expected to go on sale towards the end of December (or later) for a price between Dell's 27-inch WQHD and 30-inch Ultra HD monitors. It will be styled in a similar fashion to the current 29-inch 21:9 U2912WM (pictured above), but the final specifications (such as what ports will be on the monitor) remain unknown.
If the 21:9 aspect ratio doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps Dell's other recent monitor releases will. For $1,400 you can net yourself a 24-inch Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K Ultra HD), or you can spend a full $3,500 for the 31.5-inch 4K-resolution UltraSharp UP3214Q.
A 28-inch Ultra HD model is expected to be released in 2014, with a price tag under $1,000, which will make it the most affordable 4K monitor on the market.
