Dell is getting ready to launch three new IPS monitors with HDR support – S2318NX, S2418NX and S2718NX. All three models feature the company’s InfinityEdge design with extremely thin bezels on all sides and utilize IPS panels. Since these are not high-end monitors, they do not feature “real HDR”, instead you get “Dell HDR”, which basically creates an HDR-like image when fed HDR10 content.
All models feature 1920 x 1080 Full HD and have a native refresh rate of 60 Hz. The 2718NX is the only one to come with AMD FreeSync support, with a refresh rate range between 40 to 75Hz. Since they are utilizing IPS panels, they offer a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, a 6ms (grey-to-grey) response time, and 99% sRGB color gamut coverage. For reduced eye strain, the three models use a flicker-free backlight and offer a Low Blue Light setting that cuts down harmful blue light emitted by the display.
On the connectivity front, the upcoming models include VGA, HDMI, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The integrated stand allows for tily-only adjustment and no provision for VESA mounts. Dell will also be selling the same models with a “HX” suffix. The “HX” models feature a Waves Maxx Audio speaker integrated into the stand base.
The three models are expected to be available in key markets very soon.
