AOC has announced two new displays designed by the world-renowned design agency Studio F. A. Porsche: the Red Dot Design Award-winning U32U1 and the Q27T1.
The U32U1 (above) is a 31.5-inch premium business monitor with 4K resolution and VESA DisplayHDR 600, while the Q27T1 is a 27-inch QHD monitor geared towards design-conscious home users.
The U32U1 features a 4-sided frameless, slim and tiltable display, which sits on its shiny metal tripod stand – height-adjustable to 120 mm. The aluminium back-plate with rounded corners, which also houses the cable connectors, creates a fine contrast to the dark grey flat back cover. A true functional novelty is that this plate remains in the same position when the display is rotated into portrait position (pivot function) so the cables stay in the same place as well.
For increased flexibility, the display also comes with a VESA grid for mounting on external stands or wall mounts.
The AOC Q27T1’s 27-inch, anti-glare coated IPS panel ensures an excellent viewing experience thanks to its Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The IPS technology also delivers wide viewing angles and excellent colour reproduction.
The Q27T1, the first model in AOC’s new T1 line of displays, offers a wide colour gamut, covering 90% of the NTSC colour space. Its two HDMI and one DisplayPort sockets mean that the monitor can be connected to a wide variety of devices including desktop computers, laptops, Blu-ray players and game consoles.
“The perfect combination of state-of-the-art technology and outstanding design is what makes our new monitors developed in cooperation with Studio F. A. Porsche something genuinely special,” said Stefan Sommer, director marketing & business management Europe. “After the great success of our first jointly produced monitors two years ago, I am delighted that we can now present two more models that excel with their exceptional design.”
Christian Schwamkrug, design director at Studio F. A. Porsche, added:“With AOC we found a perfect partner that not only shares but enhances our aspiration of sophisticated and refined design. A mutual understanding of quality and performance allows us to create premium, top-notch products that meet the highest technical as well as aesthetical standards.”
AOC’s Q27T1 will be available in July 2019 at an MSRP of £ 269 and the U32U1 will be available later in 2019.
