The new Philips 492P8 monitor joins the company's P-line of displays, aimed at professionals.

We can also expect 1 x DP, 2 x HDMI, and 1 x D-Sub connector, 3.5mm input and output, 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and 1 x GbE connector.

Philips won't be releasing their huge 492P8 until Q2 2018, which is a massive time away, and we should expect a price of somewhere around $1077.
