    Ahead of next week's Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung has announced three new monitors that it will be showing off at the event.

    Samsung is debuting the CRG9, which the company says is the first high-resolution super ultra-wide gaming monitor equipped with a 32:9 aspect ratio.

    The display is equivalent to two 27-inch 16:9 monitors with a dual QHD resolution of 5120 x 1440 and support for HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. At the back, it has an HDMI port and two DisplayPorts, along with USB ports and a headphone jack.

    As a gaming monitor, it features a 120Hz refresh rate with a 4ms response time, with the display designed to minimize lag and motion blur when playing fast-paced games. It's also equipped with AMD's Radeon FreeSync HDR Technology, which Samsung says will reduce stutter, screen tearing, and input latency to guarantee the best possible frame rate.

    Samsung is also introducing the Samsung Space Monitor, designed for those who have a limited amount of desktop space for a display. It uses an arm clamp to attach to the back of a desk, freeing up valuable working area, and when not in use, it can be angled away from the desk and stored flat against a wall.

    It comes in a 27-inch size option with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and a 32-inch size option with a 4K UHD resolution.

    Samsung's third monitor debuting at CES is the UR59C, a 32-inch curved 4K display aimed at content creators. It features a 2,500:1 contrast ratio with support for up to one billion colors and a 1500R curvature for a "truly immersive experience" when creating content, watching videos, or gaming.

    The UR59C comes in a dark blue gray shade and features a slim design with a depth of 6.7mm. It's attached to a simple, two-prong base that minimizes its footprint on a desk.

    Samsung's Space Monitor, priced starting at $399, is available for pre-order from the Samsung website and Amazon.com. The UR59C curved monitor, priced at $499.99, is also available for pre-order from Samsung's website and Amazon.com.

    Samsung's 49-inch CRG9 gaming display will be available for purchase later in 2019. Pricing has not been announced.

    "Reclaim your space"? Fine, I'll start with this bizarre poster that's right next to my window but aligned with nothing.

    CES news! Yes!! Come on macduke needs a new TV! Any leaks there?

    I imagine that some sort of clip on stand that folds flat against the wall already exists with a VESA mount. I've considered getting something like that. I have a nice 4K LG display right now for gaming and for my MBP, but will need a stand like this when I replace it with a new iMac or something later this year and it will go to the side to only be used when gaming or when I need a second display.

    This is what happens when you have an art director that doesn't give a crap. "IDK, just make something 'arty' and shop it in there."

    Well, they are still struggling, but things generally try to fight and struggle before they die...

    I have curved display and love it, but I might be in the minority. the 32" curved 4K seems like its priced well. Will be interesting to see what apple does with its displays.

    There's really nothing in that picture that makes it "right"
    Incense sticks in a vase, the table..chair, the pink pot, white keyboard/mouse-black monitor and then the poster.

    TV's yes, displays still on life support.

    at least as a single user device computer displays make more sense unlike TV's

    Just bring back the all aluminium Apple Displays without the black bezels, they were timeless.

    I don't know, you might be right.

    Actually, I believe that is a reed diffuser. I got one for my girlfriend's (now wife's) roommate's birthday in 2008.

    The other thing that doesn't make sense?

    …so let's demo this display that goes flat against the wall by putting it on a desk that is strangely positioned in a room not up against a wall.

    I learned something today, I know what it is, yet didn't know it's called a "reed diffuser" (Non native)

    The Lamp, it's cordless.;)
    The Display, again cordless.
    No computer in sight.

    I do like the save your space concept, though. Are there any VESA mounts that do the same thing?

    The support structure of that first display is butt-ugly.

    I'm surprised the Samsung 32" display doesn't have USB-C. LG's 32" display that came out two years ago has USB-C, HDMI and DisplayPort. It seems Samsung display is outdated before it's released due to this reason.

    I too am excited for the TVs. I currently have a Samsung 4K TV (can't remember the size, but something in the high 40s). And it doesn't really need to be upgraded, I've only had it a few years. I'm just a sucker for bright panels, slim to near non-existent bezels, and super high-res displays, and I'm hoping CES is just oozing with that stuff this year.

    But man those monitors look SEXY!!! I desperately need to upgrade my increasingly fuzzier 1920x1080 monitor that's years old, and it looks like these bad boys from Samsung will be worth my wait :D

    I'm not surprised.
    Samsung with TV's isn't even doing OLED, they'd rather try to trick customers with QLED (typical LCD tv with a quantum dot film between the backlight and screen to allow "HDR" even though the brightness level of the TV's doesn't do a good enough job to warrant real/full HDR)

    so considering in there other more popular display division (TV's) they've decided to retrofit/iterate off old tech rather than innovate why would you expect there computer displays to be different?

    Yeah seriously, I was just reading the specs and I was in the market as well to move from my current Dell 32 inch displays. It's insane because their concept is to save space and de-clutter your desk. Additionally, these clamp stands don't rotate so you can't have a second one at an angle next to the other one, that sucks.

    "brightness of 1,000 nits"
    another money spend useless
    Better usbC in 2019 with 500nits for an in house display than 1000 useless nits

    You can't be too hard on Samsung. Apple hasn't made monitors like these so how are Samsung supposed to know how to advertise them without something to copy.

    Even my 24-inch display is still great.

    It leaves room on my desk. And it's got a sturdy mount. Nothing wobbles or is screwed to the table top. And would be sufficient for FCP work and photo editing. But it lacks 4K resolution.
    Apple, please also integrate FaceID!

    I'm still waiting...

    yes i still thinking they waited for the apple display until 2019 to implement faceID and probably with the new imacs as well since the production for this faceID is normal now
