Dell has unveiled its new UltraSharp 32; a 32-inch monitor with 4K resolution. The monitor has an IGZO-based panel and will be available to buy starting in the fourth quarter of 2013. No price indications yet.

Dell unveils UltraSharp 32 4K monitor
Dell has expanded its UltraSharp line-up with the new UltraSharp 32 designed for video, photo and graphics professionals.
Dell's first 4K monitor, the UltraSharp 32
The 32-inch panel inside has an impressive resolution of 3840x2160 pixels, also often referred to as Ultra HD or 4K resolution. The panel is based on IGZO transistors that can enable faster pixel mobility. Sharp is the only manufacturer with an active IGZO production right now so it seems that Dell ditches IPS panel technology in favor of Sharp’s VA panel technology in the UltraSharp 32. Dell has not confirmed the panel type.
Dell also mentions 1.07 billion color support, which suggests that we are talking about a 10-bit panel.
The monitor can be connected via DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort or HDMI. It also has a built-in USB hub and an SD card reader on the left side of the frame. The design is largely unchanged compared to current Dell monitors with a matte black frame but with an updated silver aluminum base that offers height adjustments, swivel, tilt and pivot.
Dell’s new 4K monitor, the UltraSharp 32, will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013. No price has been disclosed but expect a fairly high price tag.
