This is the first ever Dell 40-inch ultrawide monitor

Dell is kicking off the new year with its new 40-inch UltraSharp Curved 4K WUHD monitor. This ultrawide monitor offers wide color coverage and promising color performance.

According to Dell, the UltraSharp Curved 4K WUHD monitor is the world’s first 40-inch ultrawide curved monitor. In total, it has a resolution of 5,120 x 2,160. That is much wider than the standard 4K display. There are gaming monitors out there that are wider. Nevertheless, that’s still fairly wide compared to the standard. Dell says you can expect 33 percent more space than what you would get with a 5,120 x 2,160. Additionally, Dell promises more on-screen space than standard monitors and a wider field of view due to the monitor’s curved design.

Does the Dell 40-inch ultrawide monitor support HDR?

As of now, there’s no word about HDR support. So, that likely means the monitor won’t be supporting other HDR profiles. However, Dell does promise “true-to-life color” with 1.07 billion colors. That includes 100% of sRGB, 100% of Rec. 709, and 98% DCI-P3. Not offering HDR support might mean Dell is intending this monitor for graphic design and photo editing, less video editing and content creation.

Works as a center point for workstations

Besides its color accuracy and wide field of view, the ultrawide UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD monitor works as a central point for computer workstations. The back of the monitor has numerous ports, featuring two HDMI 2.0 ports (10-bit color at 30Hz), a DisplayPort (10 bit color at 60Hz), an audio line-out, Thunderbolt 3/DisplayPort, a USB upstream port, four USB Type-A 10 GBps USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, an RJ45 ethernet port, a USB Type-C 10Gbps port and a USB-C downstream port.

Pricing and availability

The Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD Monitor will be released on January 28th for $2,100.
