Wacom has announced its largest graphic tablet ever: a 32-inch 4K Cintiq Pro (its largest previous model was the Cintiq 27QHD).

A new 24-inch 4K Cintiq Pro is also in the works. Both the 24- and 32-inch displays will be available starting in 2018. Wacom’s current Cintiq Pro line-up includes only a 13- and 16-inch tablet.

Wacom has said that it will continue to release information about the tablets throughout the end of the year, but here’s what we know so far: The 4K displays will have a billion colors and “maximum color accuracy.” They will also have edge-to-edge glass screens and use the Wacom Pro Pen 2 technology, which with its 8,192 pressure levels offers four times more pressure sensitivity than the standard Wacom Pro Pen.

Wacom’s expansion of its Cintiq Pro line should help reassert its positioning in the tablet market, which has grown more competitive thanks to Microsoft’s entry with the Surface Pro laptops and Surface Studio workstation.

Wacom’s 24-inch display will be priced at USD$1,999, while the 32-inch will set you back $3,299.
