Wacom displays and tablets have been handy tools for artists and designers since the 1980s, offering a pen-and-mouse replacement for drawing, photo editing, and more. This line includes pen displays: screens that connect to your computer, on which you draw directly with a stylus. But Wacom says it’s created something entirely new just weeks before Apple refreshes its iPad displays. The latest model of pen display is called Movink, and it’s the company’s first with an OLED screen. It’s also Wacom’s thinnest and lightest option yet, while offering 13 inches of workspace.

Inside, a Samsung-made OLED panel offers full HD resolution with 10-bit color and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. Thanks to the qualities of OLED, you can expect a “perfect black point”, according to Wacom. Because color accuracy is paramount for artists, Movink covers 100 percent DCI-P3 and 95 percent Adobe RGB, with a Delta E difference of 2 or less. The company says the pen’s display is factory-calibrated to industry standards and stores up to two custom color profiles. It is also validated by both Pantone and Pantone SkinTone, with additional calibration available in Wacom Color Manager.

The OLED panel has benefits beyond looks. Wacom says the Movink has the fastest response time of all its pen displays and offers increased pen detection height. The company promises that there is no ripple or light leakage and the device runs cooler and quieter than other models. Movink is also a touchscreen display with two customizable buttons on its thin bezel for quick access to your most used tools.

Wacom says the Movink is the thinnest and lightest pen display it has ever made, weighing just 420 grams and measuring 4 millimeters at its thinnest point. The company explains that it is 66 percent thinner and 55 percent lighter than Wacom One 13 Touch, a comparably sized option aimed more at beginners. The screen is covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass and the body is made of magnesium alloy, so you can carry it in a bag with your laptop without worry.

Of course, the pen is an important part of this setup. Movink comes with a specially designed version of the Pro Pen 3, which Wacom says provides the same experience as the Cintiq Pro line of displays. Specifically, Pro Pen 3’s sensitivity and tilt recognition support everything from detailed digital drawing to fine line work. Wacom has refined the stylus design to increase visibility, which should improve the overall drawing experience. The pen remover and spare nibs are stored inside the pen, so you can quickly fix any problems even if you’re working away from your normal studio.

Movink is also the first professional pen display to support Wacom’s Dual Pen technology, allowing you to use styluses from other companies. The list of supported devices includes pens from Samsung, Staedtler, Lamy, Dr. Grip, etc. You can also use Wacom’s UD pens from the One line of devices, as well as older versions of the Pro Pen with Movink. The display is compatible with Windows, macOS, ChromeOS and Android, connecting to your laptop or desktop machine via a single USB-C cable (15W power supply required).

Wacom Movink is now available from the company’s online store for $750 (€850 and £730). The company will also offer folding stand for $80 and for $45. However, both items are currently listed as out of stock.
