Samsung Electronics today announced three new monitors: the minimalist Space Monitor, the CRG9 designed for gaming and the UR59C, a 4K UHD curved monitor for content creators.
Samsung Space Monitor has a sleek design and a minimalist fully-integrated arm, allowing the monitor to clamp to the desk and free up desk space. It is
easy to set up and adjust when you aren’t using it, and simple to push back and store flat against the wall.
Beyond aesthetics, Space Monitor is a high-performance monitor. The 27-inch model offers QHD resolution, while the 32-inch model presents content in 4K UHD.
Space Monitor gives users a unique arm stand, which can disappear into the back of the monitor’s slim-bezel. When using the stand, Space Monitor can be tilted or extended from the wall. It can also be lowered to the desk surface, and Samsung’s Zero Height Adjustable Stand feature provides versatility for any type of viewing preference. The stand not only makes viewing more comfortable, but also eliminates the hassle of cable management by integrating power and HDMI cords through the arm.
The CRG9 is the first high-resolution super ultra-wide gaming monitor with 32:9 aspect ratio. It offers a 120Hz refresh rate with a fast 4ms response time on a 49-inch display that minimizes image lag and motion blur to keep up with fast-paced games. The monitor also features AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology to reduce stutter, screen tearing and input latency.
Content comes alive on the CRG9, with dual QHD resolution (5120×1440) and HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. HDR10 delivers local dimming, and high-contrast HDR offers advanced highlights not available in non-HDR monitors. The monitor also leverages Samsung’s Quantum dot technology, a 1,800mm screen curvature and an ultra-wide field of view.
Equivalent to two 27-inch QHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also provides multitasking flexibility assisted by PBP (Picture-by-Picture) functionality to allow two video sources to be viewed on the same screen. The CRG9 includes one HDMI port, two Display Ports, USB 3.0 and headphone connectivity options. Samsung also designed the CRG9 with a smaller stand size for flexibility in every gamer’s space.
Designed for content creators, the new UR59C 32-inch monitor features a UHD curved display with a 2,500:1 contrast ratio and a full 3840×2160 4K UHD resolution with support for up to one billion colors. It features a 1500R curvature and it is available in Dark Blue Gray. The UR59C has also a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm with a fabric-textured rear casing. Its 3-sided bezel-less screen is attached to a V-slim metal stand with two-prong base that encases cables and reduces its footprint on work space.
