Lenovo has unveiled a pair of new 28in, 4k resolution monitors in the shape of the Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m and Lenovo ThinkVision 28.

Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m
The Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m is a professional grade model with a 10-bit colour panel, height and rotation adjustment and a plethora of connectivity. As well as DisplayPort, there's mini DisplayPort, HDMI, MHL, USB BC 1.2, three USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.

Hidden away round the back are also a couple of 3W speakers while controls are touch-sensitive and ranged along the front of the bottom-right bezel.

Perhaps the chief standout of this model is that it's finished with pane of glass on the front, which may put off some discerning users that can't abide reflections.

Expected to arrive in April 2014 it has an MSRP of $799, which is very reasonable for a 4K panel.

The other new model is a massive multi-touch panel that also houses an Android-running computer. Powered by an Nvidia Tegra processor with 2GB it brings Android 4.4 KitKat to the world of 4K screens.

The display itself is the same as the ThinkVision Pro2840m, with an UltraHD 4K panel and a glass front. However it is also touch sensitive and can fold flat for easier touch interaction.

In the base are connections for three HDMI, DisplayPort and Ethernet: a selection that clearly marks out its multimedia-centric intentions. It also features two 5-watt speakers, a pair of noise-cancelling microphones and a front-facing 2-megapixel camera.

The ThinkVison 28 is expected to hit retail with a price of $1,199 in July 2014.
