CES 2019: Samsung Announces New Displays Aimed at Saving Desk Space, Gaming and Content Creation

by

Ahead of next week's Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung has announced three new monitors that it will be showing off at the event.

Samsung is debuting the CRG9, which the company says is the first high-resolution super ultra-wide gaming monitor equipped with a 32:9 aspect ratio.


The display is equivalent to two 27-inch 16:9 monitors with a dual QHD resolution of 5120 x 1440 and support for HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. At the back, it has an HDMI port and two DisplayPorts, along with USB ports and a headphone jack.

As a gaming monitor, it features a 120Hz refresh rate with a 4ms response time, with the display designed to minimize lag and motion blur when playing fast-paced games. It's also equipped with AMD's Radeon FreeSync HDR Technology, which Samsung says will reduce stutter, screen tearing, and input latency to guarantee the best possible frame rate.

Samsung is also introducing the Samsung Space Monitor, designed for those who have a limited amount of desktop space for a display. It uses an arm clamp to attach to the back of a desk, freeing up valuable working area, and when not in use, it can be angled away from the desk and stored flat against a wall.


It comes in a 27-inch size option with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and a 32-inch size option with a 4K UHD resolution.

Samsung's third monitor debuting at CES is the UR59C, a 32-inch curved 4K display aimed at content creators. It features a 2,500:1 contrast ratio with support for up to one billion colors and a 1500R curvature for a "truly immersive experience" when creating content, watching videos, or gaming.

The UR59C comes in a dark blue gray shade and features a slim design with a depth of 6.7mm. It's attached to a simple, two-prong base that minimizes its footprint on a desk.


Samsung's Space Monitor, priced starting at $399, is available for pre-order from the Samsung website and Amazon.com. The UR59C curved monitor, priced at $499.99, is also available for pre-order from Samsung's website and Amazon.com.

Samsung's 49-inch CRG9 gaming display will be available for purchase later in 2019. Pricing has not been announced.

"Reclaim your space"? Fine, I'll start with this bizarre poster that's right next to my window but aligned with nothing.

Actually, I believe that is a reed diffuser.

I learned something today, I know what it is, yet didn't know it's called a "reed diffuser" (Non native)


The other thing that doesn't make sense?

The Lamp, it's cordless.;)
The Display, again cordless.
No computer in sight.

You can't be too hard on Samsung. Apple hasn't made monitors like these so how are Samsung supposed to know how to advertise them without something to copy.

I'm surprised the Samsung 32" display doesn't have USB-C. LG's 32" display that came out two years ago has USB-C, HDMI and DisplayPort. It seems Samsung display is outdated before it's released due to this reason.
