Consumer Electronic Show 2019: Samsung to showcase flexible Space Monitor

Samsung high-end monitor line gets three CES 2019 heavy-hitters

Samsung high-end monitor line gets three CES 2019 heavy-hitters

Perhaps the most interesting of the three is Samsung's new Space Monitor.

As to when that is, we'll let you know closer to when it happens, though our guess would be that you have a few months before you can set your own eyes on these monitors for yourself.

Samsung has "unboxed" a trio of monitors ahead of CES 2019, and while we'd normally gravitate to the screens featuring the highest resolutions and ridiculous screen sizes, we're most interested in the company's latest Space Monitor. "All of these monitors are part of our larger strategy this year, to keep giving you choices so you can get what you want- beautiful, hardworking devices that inspire you to do more".

Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. For the Samsung Space Monitor, the focus is on adaptability.

You can position Samsung's Space Monitor against the wall, hovering in the air, or flush against your desk.

If you're reading this at your computer, take a moment to appreciate how much space your monitor is taking up on your desk. Through simple ergonomic adjustment, access to ports and a discreet cable management system, Space promises to improve the form and function of any workstation, whether in the office or at home. The UR59C is 32-inch curved 4K display "designed from content creators".

The hassle of mounting your monitor on the wall is beaten by the Space monitor's design while it equally makes it easy for anyone to switch desk at any time. "It can also be lowered to the desk surface". The monitor's HDMI and power cables are integrated through the arm as well, which helps add to the minimalist look by hiding them from sight.

It will also show off a 49-inch curved QLED gaming monitor dubbed DRG9 at CES. This is one I'd love to have on my desk.

Supporting an impressive 120Hz refresh rate, Samsung said users can play challenging high-quality games without any delay. It also features AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology to reduce stutter, screen tearing and input latency for the smoothest gaming experience. The previous version's 600 nits peak brightness has also been increased, up to 1000 nits, and it comes with HDR10 support, meaning it will likely be VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified. "First there is the CRG9 49" gaming monitor that features a super ultra-wide screen and dual QHD resolution (5120x1440). The UR59C is specifically aimed at content creators. It has a slim design as well with a depth of 6.7mm and a fabric-textured rear casing. The various cables can be accommodated within the arm for a clutterless work experience.
