Seems like overkill for a 32" display.
4k on a 40" panel is quite amazing.

I'm still waiting for ultrawide 5120x2160 on 38-40 inches. I don't need anything beyond that.

At CES 2016 Dell announced and showed off a 4K 30" OLED monitor that, though overpriced at $5000, looked awesome and I might have considered buying one if the price dropped later on. Unfortunately after delaying the product for about a year they cancelled it in mid-January.

I'll start worrying about an 8K Dell monitor sometime after they delived a 4K OLED one.

It isn't an overkill. Actually, it should provide very beautiful and real pictures even at non-native resolutions, 4K at 8K panel will look better.
4K goes to smartphones with 5-6" displays, while 8K should drive everything from 15-17" laptops, through 22-32" monitors, up to big 40-85" TV screens, and beyond.

Two 3840 X 2160 monitors with thin bazels next to each other? Resulting in 7680 x 2160

Don't worry - there will be others to go the 8K route, you can't rely on a single corporation, even more so when the panel inside is someone else's.

Me too, as a real upgrade, but it was not to be ... well probably would have missed HDR anyway. Until then off to the store and drooling onto [sic] those OLED TVs and their gorgeous deep blacks.

I enjoy gorgeous deep blacks on my VA-panel Panasonic TX-50CX670E 4K TV.

Nope. Bezels are unavoidable. I can't stand having a bezel down the middle, it's distracting to the point that I begged for a new laptop at work so I could have something that could drive three independent panels (given that my previous one was Sandy Bridge and didn't even have USB 3.0, so Displaylink was out of the picture, pardon the pun).
I had to get three old 20" 4:3 1600×1200 screens to make it useful, though.
Eizo's 1:1 27" EV2730Q is neat, I think I'd enjoy using that, 3×1920×1920 (5760×1920), but it's expensive.
I'd also consider new large 4:3 or 5:4 panels, assuming the resolution was high enough (thinking of something like 3840×2880, 2880×2160 in 4:3 or 3600×2880 in 5:4).

8K has been in development for many years already.
In year 2012, manufacturers started to show prototypes of displays supporting this resolution.

My hope is that we'll move beyond fixed resolutions in a few years, if not before 8K than at least before 16K. LG has just released its first "wallpaper" displays, costing $7000 () at 65" diagonal and about 2.6mm thick. It attaches to the wall with magnets.

Hopefully in a few years we will be able to attach them to the wall in arbitrary patterns. A 130" 2x2, 7680x4320 arrangement would be obvious, but ideally could have, say, a 2x4, 7680x8640 or any other arrangement we chose, in turn assigning video streams to wherever we desired.

Eventually we might cover all the walls of a room, covering it with a single backdrop, be it a natural scene or even a work of science fiction or fantasy. Then we could overwrite portions with information or games, or whatever.

Ultimately we need a forward-looking, flexible protocol, not just a "x2" every decade or so.

4K is four times 1920 x 1080, 8K will be four times 3840 x 2160.
