CES 2016: Dell unveils wireless displays for simultaneous Windows, Android use

Dell took to CES this year to unveil a pair of wireless monitors, one of which can be used to charge your phone wirelessly. The monitor is claimed to cover 100% of the Adobe RGB and 97.8% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, making it a fantastic option for professional photo and video editors. Perhaps the pick of the bunch is the Dell UltraSharp 30 4K OLED monitor.

This is also a feature which will feature prominently in a number of other Dell business class devices for 2016 and many of these gadgets on the CES 2016 Show floor space for the company are running on the new type of USB connection. As a bonus for laptop users: when the display is connected to a laptop via USB Type-C, the UP3017Q can charge the laptop, a feature increasingly useful as slim laptops shed their ports.

This 30-inch 4K monitor boasts a contrast ratio of 400,000:1, partly thanks to the "true black" on offer, plus an impressive ultra-fast response time of 0.1ms. Another version, the UltraSharp 24, features a 23.8-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution and four USB 3.0 ports but sans the wireless charger.

The Dell UltraSharp 30 OLED monitor is Dell's first OLED monitor. Alongside the 23in edition is a slightly bigger companion, the Dell 24 Wireless Monitor.

Next up is the UltraSharp InfinityEdge, which extends the minimal bezel design first introduced in Dell's popular XPS 13 notebook. The 23 Wireless also has built-in speakers and a wireless charging stand for compatible mobile devices to enhance the no-wires experience.


The Dell UltraSharp 30 OLED monitor will cost whopping $4,999, which it becomes available on March 31, 2016, in the United States.
