Dell has just unveiled the world's first 49-inch dual-QHD curved monitor, with a super-awesome design and features, but it's the huge 5120x1440 native resolution that will blow peoples minds.

The new Dell UltraSharp U4919DW is a huge 49-inch monitor that offers the same pixel real estate as two 27-inch 1440p displays, with Dell using an IPS panel and throwing in a built-in KVM switch (keyboard/video/mouse) that lets you use multiple PCs all plugged into a single display. The built-in KVM switch means you don't need multiple keyboards and mice plugged in, as you can plug two sources into the Dell UltraSharp U4919DW and then use a single keyboard and mouse.

There's a boat load of connectivity, with Dell including the expected DisplayPort, two HDMI ports, USB Type-C connectivity (which will also charge your smartphone), and more. We have 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178-degree viewing angles, 99% sRGB color gamut, the aforementioned built-in KVM, and more.

Dell will have the new UltraSharp U4919DW on sale in the US starting October 26, with prices beginning at $1699.
