Dell is prepping its first 4K 24-inch monitor

In the age of Full HD 5-inch smartphones, it`s hard to realize that our computer monitors are still running at only 1920 by 1080 pixels, just like our pocket gadgets...A new breed of 4K monitors is on the way it seems, even if the incredible success of portable computing in the form of tablets and smartphones, makes many manufacturers hesitant to start mass producing the new ultra-high res monitors.
The new Dell might seem like an enigma at the moment, but this hasn`t stopped the company developing a new 4K monitor. A leaked product page indicates a new 24-inch IPS LED monitor, running at 
3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
The monitor will be called the 
UP2414Q
 and will feature an 8-bit panel, 
with Advanced Frame Rate Control (AFRC) trying simulate 10-bit color.
 The new monitor has 
DisplayPort 1.2 on-board and it is clearly aimed for professional use, even if 24 inches seem on the small side these days.There`s no pricing or availability information at this point, even though we expect the price to be quite competitive, given Dell`s new image.Update: Dell has now officially announced the UP2414Q, available in the Americas starting today for $1399. The monitor will be available worldwide on December 16. Two larger versions were announced too; a 32-inch UP3214Q model for $3499 and a more interesting 28-inch model priced at under $1000 which will follow in early 2014.
