HP has announced four new 4K displays and HP Thunderbolt Dock G2, and all products that we briefly anticipate today that we will have a chance to see closely during the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 event to be held later this month in Barcelona.
Let’s start with the HP Thunderbolt Dock G2, an accessory that can offer up to 100W of power through Thunderbolt connection and support up to two 4K displays. Its peculiarity lies in its an optional audio conferencing module to perform conferences via Skype, thanks to the touch controls placed on the top of the dock.
Thunderbolt Dock G2 has three USB 3.0 ports, one Gigabit Ethernet port, one VGA, two DisplayPort, one USB-C DisplayPort, one audio jack, one 15W data and power port, one Kensington slot and one Thunderbolt port. Its price has not been announced yet and should be available from May of this year.
Moving to the 4K Displays, the first we have a new HP EliteDisplay S270n, the first 4K EliteDisplay that can pull video and data and send up to 60W of power to the PC with just one USB-C cable connection.
The screen is a 27-inches surrounded by particularly thin edges and full specifications will be released later, but this 4K monitor will soon be available to purchase for $579.
The new HP Z27, Z32, and Z43, the other three 4K monitor with a screen size of 27-inches, 31.5-inches, and 42.5-inches respectively. All three HP 4K Displays also offer support for 10-bit HDR technology and are able to deliver up to 65W power to the connected device, all while continuing to manage data and video output from the PC. The availability of ports is also very interesting that includes an HDMI 2.0 or Mini DisplayPort, three USB 3.0, a USB Type-C port, DisplayPort, while the all three models are able to support the sRGB and BT.709 color range.
The suggested price is $559 for HP Z27, $899 for HP Z32 and $799 for HP Z43, but we have to wait for other features which will be unveiled at MWC 2018.
