The hardware giant unveiled the new UltraSharp and XPS lineups ahead of the annual tech conference's opening on 9 January.


The new UltraSharp lineup consists of the UltraSharp 40 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor (U4025QW) and the UltraSharp 34 Curved Thunderbolt Hub Monitor.


The larger variant, the UltraSharp 40, is said to be the world’s first 40-inch 5K (5120x2160) monitor certified for five-star eye comfort. In addition, it's VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified, delivering richer colours, and comes with IPS Black Panel technology for greater contrast and detail in high resolution. The monitor also features a 99% DCI-P3/Display P3 colour space, making it capable of handling colour-critical tasks.


Dell also partnered with TUV Rheinland to reduce eye strain on its monitors and reach new industry standards. To do this, Dell doubled refresh rates from 60Hz to 120Hz to bring smoother and sharper motion visuals. It also built in an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness and colour temperature according to ambient light condition. Lastly, it further decreased the harmful blue light emitted by its monitors by incorporating advanced LED backlight that can go from 50% exposure to less than 35% exposure.

For connectivity, the new UltraSharp has Thunderbolt 4 with up to 140W power delivery, high-speed wired Ethernet connectivity at 2.5Gbps via RJ45, along with HDMI 2.1 FRL (Fixed Rate Link) and DisplayPort 1.4 for smooth image transmission.


When it comes to design, meanwhile, the monitor comes in a platinum silver finish for a clean aesthetic, and features intuitive front-facing quick access ports, making it easier to connect external devices.


Those who need a smaller monitor can go with the UltraSharp 34, which shares similar features with its larger variant, including five-star eye comfort certification, IPS Black technology and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity with up to 90W power delivery. Its resolution, however, caps at WQHD (3440x1440).


Dell has yet to announce release details for both monitors in Singapore.

Alongside the monitors, Dell is introducing new XPS laptops, bringing new screen sizes to market with the XPS 16 and XPS 14, as well as revamping the XPS 13 Plus to XPS 13. The company touts that this trio share elements that eliminate distractions and heighten the focus on productivity.


Design-wise, the new laptops feature a minimalist aesthetic, highlighted by its tone-on-tone colours, Graphite and Platinum, and its use of machined aluminum and Gorilla Glass 3 materials. All three feature a touch function row to switch between media and function keys easily, a glass touchpad with haptic feedback and larger keycaps that provide a comfortable and smooth typing experience.

What's more, each XPS laptop comes equipped with InfinityEdge panels with OLED touch options and feature variable refresh rates, high resolution options, stunning colour and Dolby Vision support. They also come with a quad speaker design with support for Dolby Atmos immersive audio and 3D stereo surround from MaxxAudio Pro by Wave.


Other key features include an FHD 1080p webcam and AI-enabled features that come by way of Intel Core Ultra processors and Windows 11.

The XPS 14 is the middle option, combining portability with power. It's 21% lighter than the XPS 16, but it can only house up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 GPU. The XPS 13, meanwhile, is Dell's lightest and thinnest XPS laptop with three different display options, including FHD+, QHD+ touch and 3K+ OLED touch.
