Wacom is a big name in the drawing tablet and pen display segment. Many photographers and illustrators use Wacom products to edit images and create art. The company’s latest is the Wacom Movink, a 13-inch OLED pen display that Wacom calls “Always ready to go.”

The Movink is Wacom’s first OLED pen and touch display. Thanks to the OLED design, which ditches the need for a dedicated backlight, unlike LED displays, the Movink is also Wacom’s lightest and thinnest pen display.

The Wacom Movink weighs just 420 grams (14.8 ounces) and is a mere four millimeters (0.16 inches) thick at its thinnest point. Compared to the Wacom One 13 Touch, the Movink is 55% lighter and 66% thinner.

The tablet connects to a Mac or PC via a single USB-C to USB-C cable for power and display connectivity. The tablet can also connect to other devices, like smartphones. However, they may be unable to deliver enough juice to the tablet, so there is a secondary USB-C port for auxiliary power as needed. The Movink 13 supports macOS, Windows, ChromeOS, and Android.

While the featherweight and svelte design is great — and will undoubtedly be a welcome improvement — the star of the show is the new OLED panel. The 13.3-inch Full HD Samsung OLED is Pantone Validated and Pantone SkinTone Validated. It promises a near-infinite contrast ratio and it covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and 95% of Adobe RGB, which is quite impressive.

Wacom promises a very responsive pen experience using the included Pro Pen 3 stylus. Latency is below a millisecond, which is crucial for a natural drawing experience. The included pen has a slightly different nib than Wacom’s typical pens, designed specifically for the new Movink.

“Offering impressive pen sensitivity and tilt detection, our latest pen lets you create everything from powerful brushstrokes to delicate lines just as you envision them. It has a narrower yet more visible nib, and is composed of interchangeable parts so you can customize it the way you want: change the grip thickness, adjust its center of gravity, or add and remove side switches. Pro Pen 3 brings you closer than ever to the pen-on-paper experience,” promises Wacom.

The pen has 8,192 levels of pressure. However, the tablet works with other pens as well, including the Pro Pen 2 and third-party offerings.

For photographers, being able to perform precise local adjustments with a natural “brush” directly on a photo is extremely beneficial.

The Wacom Movink 13 is available to order now for $750.
