Philips announced two new monitors for professionals. The new 24-inch 241B7QUBHEB and 27-inch 272B7QUBHEB IPS panels come rocking a USB dock with productivity enhancements, time-saving features and other benefits for the workday, not to mention rather solid color scores for accurate reproduction. Following the growing trend of pop-up webcams in Philips monitors, the two new screens will have similar Windows Hello webcams to create a sleek-looking design.
The USB dock is integrated with a single dual-mesh USB cable, which houses connectors for Type-C and Type-A devices. There's even DisplayPort-out, allowing you to daisy-chain similar panels. The 24-inch is a 1080p Full HD display, while the larger 27-inch unit comes with a resolution of 1440p. Both have a refresh rate of 75Hz and score well on sRGB with 102% and 132%, respectively, for color reproduction.
The new Philips 241B7QUBHEB and 272B7QUBHEB monitors will be priced at £319 ($400) and £489 ($615), but there's no word on availability or pricing for the U.S.
