Looks like the same as the P series with 4K resolution. This one packs a QHD resolution in a 24 inches frame. Not that expensive also. Better dpi than the U2515H.
This is a QHD 2560x1440 monitor (4 times the resolution of 720p HD), not a 4K or UHD monitor. It has the same resolution as a standard 27" monitor, as well as the U2515H, but in a 23.8" viewable size. A smaller panel with the same resolution results in a smaller dot pitch.

Dell's "4K" monitors offer 3840x1920 resolution (4 times the resolution of 1080p HD).

I know it's not 4K, I said it looks like ....not it is.

Thanks for posting.
So this is basically a dumbed down, less capable, non-UltraSharp version of the U2515H for £10 less (going by Amazon prices). What's the point?

Granted, it does have a slightly higher PPI, but apart from that it's worse in every way.
You'd even have to purchase a separate cable in order to use it with a Mac as far as I can make out.
