It looks like the 31.5-inch PQ321 won't be the only 4K Ultra-HD monitor from ASUS for long. The company unveiled the even bigger unnamed 39-incher at Computex for a brief moment, before veiling it back, leaving us just enough time to take a few snaps. The 39-inch monitor is based on a VA (vertical-alignment) panel, compared to the IGZO panel that drives the PQ321. That could possibly make it cheaper. It offers a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, single-figure response time, 60 Hz refresh rate (when taking input from DisplayPort 1.2), 5,000:1 static contrast ratio with dynamic mega-contrast, 350 cd/m² brightness, 170°/170° viewing angles, and inputs that include a DisplayPort 1.2, and two HDMI. It also features a different forked stand design to the PQ321.
