Samsung isn’t going to sit back and watch LG’s upcoming range of monitors stealing all the limelight at CES 2018. Samsung just unveiled another curved QLED display, the world’s first with Thunderbolt 3. It’s officially called the CJ791, and sports a 3440×1440 resolution, wide 21:9 aspect ratio, and 4 milliseconds response time.
Those specs are certainly no match for LG’s upcoming 34-inch ultra-wide 5K monitor. But, that also isn’t stopping Samsung from boasting of its immersive picture, achieved through its 1,500R curvature and ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle coupled with its QLED tech, which reflects colours across a 125 percent sRGB spectrum for “deeper blacks and whiter shades.” Eventually, the company hopes it will attract both business users in search of multi-tasking screen space, and gamers.
And then there’s the latest Thunderbolt 3, which should be enough to attract laptop users to switch to a larger monitor without any need for an additional power source. As you’ve probably guessed, that also means faster processing speeds (up to 40 Gigabits per second) and laptop charging, with up to 85 watts of power. Well, Samsung didn’t reveal any details on the price yet.
