Dell just announced its newest monitor, the UltraSharp UP2718Q. It’s a 27-inch 4K desktop monitor, but the biggest addition is support for HDR video (under the HDR10 specification).

While Dell has made several well-regarded 4K monitors before, the UltraSharp UP2718Q is the company’s first foray into HDR. Spec-wise, the UP2718Q is set to offer HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort options for connectivity, up to 1000 nits of brightness, and a 3840 x 2160 maximum resolution. You’ll be able to pick one up on May 23rd for $1,999.99.

Dell U2718Q display

Along with the HDR-infused UP2718Q, Dell also announced two new regular UltraSharp displays — the 27-inch, 4K U2718Q for $699.99, and the 25-inch U2518D for $499.99 (Dell didn’t mention its resolution, but it’s seemingly just HD), both of which will be available in July. Both the U2718Q and the U2518D are what Dell calls “InfinityEdge” displays, with dramatically reduced bezels for a cleaner visual look.
