SINGAPORE - First announced at last month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, PC maker Dell demonstrated its new UltraSharp UP3017Q - Dell's first computer monitor to use an organic light-emitting diode (Oled) panel - at an event today showcasing its latest computing products for mobile workers and professionals.

The 30-inch Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q has an incredible contrast ratio (400,000:1) because of its Oled panel. Hence, images look more vivid and vibrant than typical LCD displays. It also has a 3,840 x 2,160-pixel screen resolution and an ultra-fast response time of 0.1ms.

More importantly, the UP3017Q covers 100 per cent of the Adobe RGB colour space and 97.8 per cent of DCI-P3 colour space, which are industry colour standards used by video editors and animators. The monitor will be available this May for $6,999.

At the same time, Dell launched the new UltraSharp 24 Wireless Monitor, which lets users mirror the display of a compatible Windows PC or Android mobile device on its large 24-inch screen. In addition, users will be able to reply text messages on the smartphone directly by using a wired or wireless keyboard and mouse connected to the monitor. The UltraSharp 24 Wireless Monitor will be available this April at $649.

Dell has also refreshed its entire portfolio of business computing products, including desktops and laptops, with the latest hardware. Some of its more premium offerings, such as the Dell Latitude 13 7000 Series, is inspired by the company's premium consumer XPS line and boasts similar features like an ultra-thin bezel and a sleek carbon-fibre chassis. It will be available sometime next month, though Dell has not revealed its pricing.
