Samsung announce a new curved quantum dot monitor, to showcase more at CES 2017

CES 2017 is now less than a week away, and the consumer tech companies have started making their announcements. Lenovo announced nine laptops, along with a couple of monitors and docks; now it’s Samsung’s turn.

The company today announced that it would be unveiling a new curved quantum dot monitor with 1800R of curvature and a 178-degree viewing angle.

It’s not Samsung’s first foray into quantum dot monitors; earlier in 2016 at IFA, the company had announced two new gaming monitors, both of which released a couple of months ago. The two gaming monitors – CFG70, and CG791 – share quite a lot of their specifications with the monitor announced today.

CH711

The monitor announced today is called CH711; Samsung has made two variants: a 27-inch one, and a 31.5-inch one.

The two monitors share rest of their specifications; they are both running at a nice 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution and can output nearly 125% of the sRGB color gamut.

Just as was the case with Samsung’s gaming monitors; the different screen size but identical display resolution mean that the 31.5-inch model will be 93 PPI, while the 27-inch model will be 108 PPI.

Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t released any more details about the monitor. It seems this is just a teaser of things to come at CES. Speaking of which, there’s more.

The CES

Samsung also teased two other monitors for CES – but with even fewer details.

First is the 28-inch UH750; meant to be a gaming monitor, it’s also a quantum dot display, except it’s capable of 1 m/s response times.

Second is the SH850 which will come in two variants: 23.8-inch, and 27-inch. These monitors will come with a 1440p WQHD display, and will be able to daisy-chain via DisplayPort out – quite intriguing indeed.

Availability

The two variants of CH711, and the teased UH750 and SH850 – all of these are scheduled for a release sometime in “early 2017.” That’s all Samsung has given us for now.

If you are visiting the CES floor next week; Samsung will have all of these monitors at their booth on the show floor.
