The Dell is certainly no slouch though. It can display 1.07 billion colors, has a 400,000:1 contrast ratio and response time of 0.1ms. The UP3017Q is rated at 100 percent of the AdobeRGB color space and can hit 97.8 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. DCI-P3 is the color space used exclusively for cinema today.

These look gorgeous! And I’m really looking for OLED screens. However, there is the possibility of burn-in and lifespan issues of OLED. Dell is prepared for that.

Dell said the UP3017Q uses a pixel-shifting feature to reduce the chance of burn-in.

The other problem with OLED panels is a shorter life span due to the organic layer breaking down over time. Dell said the UP3017Q features a “presence” detector to tell when you’re in front of the monitor or not, and switch off the display when you aren’t.

Well presence detection never failed, so what can go wrong with this?

In all seriousness OLED are the next great thing and Dell is aiming to be there first, but at a cost premium that resembles the first 4K screens sold in the Apple Store.
