Spec wise the screen is 28″ in size and offers a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution.

The screen also comes factory calibrated with a dE <1 achieved according to the spec listing.
High Refresh Rate and VRR Support
The high 144Hz refresh rate is supported by adaptive sync for VRR capability from both AMD and NVIDIA systems. The screen is expected to carry the FreeSync Premium certification, but G-sync Compatible is not currently listed. A blue reduction mode is also mentioned and is expected to be featured. The presence of HDMI 2.1 means the screen can support latest generation games consoles including 4K @ 120Hz and VRR importantly.
For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 1x USB type-C (65W power delivery) and 2x HDMI 2.1 provided along with 4x USB 3.0 ports and an audio output. A ‘LightSense’ ambient light sensor is also discussed in the imagery along with a ‘ColorSense’ sensor that appears to control the colour temp depending on the time of day and ambient light conditions. 2x 2W speakers are also included and the stand offers a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.
