CES 2018 is coming up fast and Samsung is unveiling a few things ahead of schedule. The CJ791 is a 34″ curved QLED monitor with Thunderbolt 3 and it looks fantastic. The CJ791 is designed for business and entertainment audiences and aligns single-source power and processing speed. Samsung says the picture quality provides a comfortable and productive experience for the user. Since the CJ791 features Thunderbolt 3, users can link and dock their monitor and laptop with a single wire.
The Thunderbolt 3 connection provides processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) — a rate nearly four times faster than USB alternatives — allowing users to enjoy connectivity across a full ecosystem of docks, displays and peripheral devices including Macs, USB type-C laptops, and other desktop accessories like storage drives or external graphics cards. The Thunderbolt 3 interface also enables the CJ791 to provide up to 85 watts (W) of laptop charging power.
“As the pioneer of the curved monitor industry, Samsung continues to seek new ways to refine our displays and exceed consumers’ expectations on heightened performance and presentation,” said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our best-in-class curvature and QLED picture quality to captivate and engage users, while also promoting improved organization and productivity. We are thrilled to demonstrate the full capabilities of our innovative new display to CES 2018 attendees.”
As with most high-end newer monitors, Samsung is going the nearly bezel-less route in design which gives the monitor a slim and sleek look. This unit looks like it will be particularly great for content creators who use Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere Pro. We will try and make our way over to see it during CES 2018 to have a sneak peek.
