AOC introduces the I1601P, a 15.6″ portable monitor with Full HD resolution and IPS panel, capable of displaying image via USB-C and USB-A. When the display is connected to a USB-A port, the DisplayLink technology is used to display images.
The I1601P can be connected with USB-C to, for example, laptops and tablets that support the DisplayPort Alt mode. However, the screen can also be connected to laptops without USB-C. AOC supplies a USB-C to USB-A adapter with DisplayLink support for this. DisplayLink drivers must also be installed before this can be used. These are available for Windows, macOS, Android, ChromeOS and Ubuntu, among others.
The screen has a 15.6″ IPS panel with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The gray-to-gray response time is 5ms and the brightness is 220cd/m². There are physical buttons to adjust the settings. fit through an OSD, but you can also do that through AOC’s i-Menu software.
The portable monitor has an aluminum housing and weighs 800 grams. AOC supplies a Smart Cover. It also serves as a standard and the screen can be placed in both landscape and portrait orientation.
Previously, AOC already released the I1601FWUX with USB-C support only, and the I1659FWUX with USB-A and DisplayLink technology. The new I1601P has similar specifications, but combines both connections. The screen will be released in August for a suggested retail price of 239 euros.
