CES2019: Samsung Announces Space Monitor, CRG9 49-inch & UR59C 32-inch Monitors

The company says that each monitor offers the best in technology, from ultra-wide screens and realistic colors for immersive games to designs that save space and increase productivity.

The company also launched several other monitors ahead of CES, which kicks off next week, including a pretty insane, ultra-widescreen gaming monitor. This curved display is being aimed primarily at content creators, with 3840 x 2160 resolution and a 2,500:1 contrast ratio. Wall mounting gives you the option to get the monitor off your desk, but the included stand is also created to prioritize desk space while still providing the support a large monitor needs.

In essence, the Samsung CRG9 (above) is the desktop equivalent of getting a screen to wrap around a head, with a resolution of 5120×1440 recreating what might be a cockpit in games, and supporting AMD's Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology as well. This Samsung's new monitor is really a compelling choice in as much as it doesn't require you to use a wall mount or drill holes in the wall. When using the stand, the Space Monitor orientation can be easily tilted or extended from the wall depending on your needs and requirements and can also be lowered to the desk surface.

We briefly tested this ourselves, and while there are some articulation limitations with this type of arm, it's a uniquely clean and minimalistic setup that should attract users looking for clean lines on their desk.

Pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but Samsung's new monitor lineup will be on display at CES 2019 in Las Vegas from January 8 through January 11. The 27-inch model offers QHD resolution for incredibly detailed, pin-sharp images, while the 32-inch model presents content in 4K UHD.

The Space Monitor will be available with a 27-inch Quad HD screen or a 32-inch 4K screen, priced at $399 and $499 respectively, when it goes on sale in late February. It's also got picture-by-picture functionality and a smaller stand size for more efficient space usage.

The power and HDMI cables are routed through the back of the stand, which helps reduce clutter on your desk. All three of them are impressive monitors for varying reasons too, though we can't imagine any of them will be budget-friendly displays.

The Samsung Space monitor could be pre-ordered now through Best Buy, Amazon and Samsung.com.

Available in Dark Blue Gray, the UR59C has a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm with a fabric-textured rear casing.
