Dell announces $5K 31.5-inch UltraSharp HDR display with 2K mini-LED dimming zones, two other monitors

Dell has announced three new monitors, including a new 4K (3840 x 2160, 16:9) 31.5″ UltraSharp HDR PremierColor display with a 2,000-zone mini-LED array and built-in color calibrator.

The Dell UP3221Q is the first display with 2,000 mini-LED direct backlit dimming zones, beating out both the Asus ProArt PA32UCX (1,152 zones) and Apple’s Pro XDR Display (576 zones). The IPS display is VESA certified for DisplayHDR 1000, has a maximum brightness of 1,000 cd/m2, a 60Hz refresh rate, a claimed HDR contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and has a 178-degree viewing angle.

As for color, the display covers 99.8% of DCI-P3, 93% of Adobe RGB and 83% of BT.2020. To ensure colors stay accurate, the UP3221Q features a built-in Calman Powered colorimeter that can calibrate itself without the need for a PC. Should you choose to use an external colorimeter, you can do so as well with a USB-A port on the bottom of the display.

Additional I/O options include two Thunderbolt 3 ports (only one supports daisy-chaining other Thunderbolt 3 products), two HDMI 2.0 (HDCP 2.2) ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 (HDCP 2.2) port and two USB 3.2 Gen 1/2 ports.

The 31.5-inch UltraSharp HDR PremierColor display is set to go on sale November 5 for $5,000.
