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

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.

Just bring back the all aluminium Apple Displays without the black bezels, they where timeless.

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.

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.

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.

This is what happens when you have an art director that doesn't give a crap. "IDK, just make something 'arty' and shop it in there."

Yeah I did a lot of research on it before buying my display because I wanted an OLED display and there was like only one model line in existence and it was several thousands of dollars. So I looked up why and OLED is organic and has problems with retaining images if they aren’t frequently changing. Mobile devices are full screen for apps and the content changes a lot. Also device manufacturers have some software tricks they use to help with it, like sub pixel shifting or something. TVs aren’t as bad as computer displays that have the same UI all the time, but aren’t quite as good as phones at changing, especially if you watch the same channel a lot or leave something paused too long. Idk exactly how it happens but it seemed like a lot of people had issues with that. It seems like the best compromise is a lot of local dimming zones or wait for mLED which combines the best features of LCD and OLED with even lower power consumption. So part of me wants to wait on that but I want to see if any news about mLED comes out of CES. Otherwise I might just go for a medium-spec 65” 4K and upgrade again in a few years and either sell it or put it in my studio.


I’ve got a 2017 model Panasonic OLED. It is an amazing screen. It does have pixel orbiting (which is never noticeable) and it does some screen wipe thing when going into standby after 4 hours use (don’t see anything on screen, just the power button goes yellow). Screen burn is more likely if you watch news or shopping channels with the ticker, but I don’t, and only get a chance to watch for an hour or so at the end of the day, so not worried.

It would be a different matter with a monitor. One or two OLED monitors have appeared, but I’ll wait for microLED or hopefully ELQD (self-emissive electroluminescent quantum dot, as opposed to the current photoluminescent quantum dot backlight filters) displays.

Yeah seriously, I was just reading the specs and I was in the market as well to move from my current Dell 32 inch displays. It's insane because their concept is to save space and de-clutter your desk. Additionally, these clamp stands don't rotate so you can't have a second one at an angle next to the other one, that sucks.

Plot twist:
you secretly work for Samsung and those are the same 1337 Photoshop skillz that caused there to be no cables including power for the lamp.:D:p
