Samsung is starting off the year by announcing a new line of high-end monitors aimed at gamers and content creators. The lineup includes the space-saving Space Monitor, the CRG9 49″ super ultra-wide QHD monitor, and the UR59C UHD curved monitor.
Samsung Space Monitor
Perhaps the most unique of the line-up is the company’s Space Monitor, a “modern and minimalist” screen that’s perfect for work and home office tasks.
Designed to take up as little desk space as possible, the monitor features a built-in arm clamp that owners can use to mount the screen to the back of a desk.
Samsung is said to be working on both a 27-inch QHD model as well as a larger, 32-inch 4K UHD model.
Samsung CRG9 49″ super ultra-wide QHD monitor
Next in the range is the CRG9, a stunning, 49-inch super ultra-wide QHD monitor built specifically for gamers. Essentially made by combining two 27-inch Space Monitors, this 120Hz, 32:9 monitor offers players an ultra-smooth, low-lag (4ms) gaming experience that’s wholly unrivaled, Samsung brags.
Leveraging the company’s lauded Quantum dot technology, this 5120 x 1440-inch display is capable of perfectly reproducing a wide range of color tones.
What’s more, peaking at a brightness of 1,000 nits, the contrast between the brightest and darkest parts of the image are unachievable with traditional gaming monitors, says the maker.
When it comes to connectivity, the CRG9 includes an HDMI port, two Display Ports, USB 3.0 and a headphone input.
Samsung UR59C UHD curved monitor
Lastly, at the top of the range is the slightly smaller but more advanced Samsung UR59C. Boasting a 2,500:1 contrast ratio, this 32-inch curved 4K UHD monitor supports up to one billion colors, making it perfect for those who create videos, photos, or digital artwork as a career.
Like the Space Monitor and CRG9, the UR59C too is designed with desk space in mind, therefore, it has a smaller footprint than other monitors.
Samsung says all three screens will be on display at CES starting on January 8th. At present, launch details nor pricing has been made public.
