CES 2019 is coming folks but the news is already starting to break. So consider this the start of our CES 2019 coverage. Kicking us off is Samsung and a handful of new monitors for 2019. I had the pleasure of checking these new monitors out for a short time and let me tell you, they’re impressive. We’ll try and get some more hands-on time with these new monitors once we’re on the ground at CES 2019. For now, here’s what we know.
Samsung announced three new monitors all designed for the modern workspace and next-generation gaming. Each monitor offers the best in technology, ranging from ultra-wide screens and lifelike colors for immersive gaming to space-saving designs to increase productivity.

Samsung Space Monitor
This is a
Samsung Space Monitor leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what’s on the screen and not what’s around it. Its unique built-in space-saving solution, a minimalist fully-integrated arm, clamps to the desk and frees up desk space for ultimate user productivity. Samsung Space Monitor is easy to set up and adjust when you aren’t using it, and simple to push back and store flat against the wall. Through easy ergonomic adjustment, port access and a discreet cable management system, Space Monitor improves the form and function of any workstation or home office.
Beyond aesthetics, Space Monitor is a feature-rich, high-performance monitor. The 27-inch model offers QHD resolution for incredibly detailed, pin-sharp images, 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 easily tilted or extended from the wall. It can also be lowered to the desk surface, and Samsung’s Zero Height Adjustable Stand feature provides the ultimate 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 for a clean, flexible look.Samsung PR
Samsung CRG9 49″ Gaming Monitor
This massive 49″ curved gaming monitor is stunning to behold. While this is fully intended for gaming use, content creators will also benefit from the large amount of screen space. This is one I’d love to have on my desk.
The CRG9 is the world’s 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 effortlessly keep up with fast-paced games. Built for a superior gaming experience, the monitor also features AMD Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology to reduce stutter, screen tearing and input latency to ensure the best possible frame rate and smoothest gaming experience.
Content truly comes alive on the CRG9, with dual QHD resolution (5120×1440) and HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, providing superfine detail in the brightest and the darkest parts of an image. HDR10 delivers outstanding local dimming, and high-contrast HDR offers advanced spectacular highlights not available in non-HDR monitors. The monitor also leverages Samsung’s revolutionary Quantum dot technology for an exceptionally wide range of accurate color reproduction, and a 1,800mm screen curvature and an ultra-wide field of view for complete visibility.
Equivalent to two 27-inch QHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also provides ultimate 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 convenience and flexibility in every gamer’s space.Samsung PR
Samsung UR59C 32″ Curved 4K UHD Monitor
While the CRG9 is aimed at gamers but would be just fine for content creators as well. The UR59C is specifically aimed at content creators. With a curved 4K UHD display, it’s great for those photographers and videographers who need high resolution and color clarity.
Ideal for content creators that seek both versatility and performance, 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. The 1500R curvature delivers a truly immersive experience that shines while creating content and art, watching videos or gaming while reducing the eye strain typically associated with long periods of traditional monitor use.
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. Its 3-sided bezel-less screen is attached to a slender yet sturdy V-slim metal stand with a two-prong base that encases cables and reduces its footprint on your workspace.Samsung PR
