CES 2018 might be over but there’s still plenty of tech and other news from the event to cover. Curved monitors are nothing new and have been gaining popularity as of late and Samsung’s latest QLED curved monitor is the first to feature Intel Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
“Whether for gaming or professional use, the CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our immersive curvature and QLED picture quality, pushing the envelope of innovation and intuitive design,” said Pat Bugos, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung Canada.
By utilizing a Thunderbolt 3 connection, the 34-inch Samsung CJ791 monitor allows “users to enjoy connectivity across a full ecosystem of docks, displays and peripheral devices including iOS laptops, USB type-C laptops, and other desktop accessories like storage drives or external graphics cards.” In addition, the monitor can provide up to 85W of charging power to charge your laptop. With fewer connection ports, Samsung was able to slim the CJ791 even further and the narrow bezel design allows for more seamless multi-display setups. The monitor also features a height-adjustable stand and tilt functionality for easy customization to suit most workspaces and viewing needs.
With a 21:9 aspect ratio and ultra-wide QHD 3440×1440 resolution, the QLED display offers accurate colours and covers a 125% sRGB spectrum, 1,500R curvature, and ultra-wide 178º viewing area. Coupled with deep blacks and bright whites, the monitor also includes a number of integrated gamer-friendly features including Game MOde and a 4ms response time for smooth transitions while gaming.
Pricing and a release date have yet to be confirmed for the new QLED curved monitor from Samsung but we’ll be sure to keep you posted once we find out.
