Asus is readying a 31.5-inch display with 3840x2160 pixels, four times the pixel count of a standard HD display.
The panel uses Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide ("IGZO") instead of silicon, which allows for smaller transistors and, hence, the greater pixel density. Asus claims a 176-degree viewing angle and 8ms response times.
The PQ312 has displayport and dual HDMI connectors, stereo speakers, and 3.5mm audio i/o. It weighs 13kg and is 35mm thick.
Pricing hasn't been announced, but Asus is well-known for its competitiveness: the Taiwanese company's well-liked 27" 2560x1440 display is a relatively cheap $633 at Amazon.
At 140 DPI, it's not quite up to the "retina"-style resolution of recent cellphones and laptops—but then again, you're probably not holding it 12 inches from your mug.
IBM has had a similarly high-resolution monitor out, the T221, for several years. With slow refresh rate and the dimensions of a giant's briefcase, though, it was too slow and ugly to appeal beyond the business niche. Asus's PQ321 will be a relatively slim 35mm.

The Inverter is a kickstarted, sub-$500, 34mm automatic mechanical watch built around Citizen's Miyota Calibre 9000 movement, augmented with a custom module that makes the watch run backwards, so that it can be mounted so that the movement is exposed (beneath a sapphire crystal), with the back of the watch becoming its "face."
Damon Beres notes that the situation with folding displays is quickly going to hell. Enter Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, a kind of metal and glass taco that could define a new category of personal device — provided the company can get the thing to work. Several tech writers accidentally broke the gadget’s foldable display shortly after receiving review […]
