Now that Samsung's shown us the GS5 (http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/24/samsung-galaxy-s5-preview/), Gear 2 smartwatch (http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/24/meet-samsungs-new-smartwatch-family-gear-2-neo-fit/) and its latest Chromebook (http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/03/samsung-chromebook-2/), it's time for the company's lesser-known product teams to come out of the woodwork. Next up: the display division, which today introduced three new models for 2014, including one with a billion-color, 3,840 x 2,160 screen. That would be the beaut you see above, the 28-inch UD590, which is up for pre-order for $700. In addition to that stunner of a display, it does Picture-in-Picture, with no downgrading in resolution as you move to a smaller frame. There's also a dual-screen feature called Picture-by-Picture, which you could theoretically use for split-screen gaming, even though this was really designed with creative pros in mind. Design-wise, it's fashioned out of metal, with thin bezels and a T-shaped stand that leaves room for speakers and other items you might have on your desk. Around back, you'll find a single DisplayPort, along with two HDMI 1.4 sockets for outputting 4K.
