The upcoming display will be the first curved monitor to include Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Samsung has revealed its latest QLED curved monitor. The 34-inch CJ791 will offer Thunderbolt 3 support and is set to make its debut at CES 2018 in Las Vegas next week.
"As the pioneer of the curved monitor industry, Samsung continues to seek new ways to refine our displays and exceed consumers' expectations on heightened performance and presentation," said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "The CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our best-in-class curvature and QLED picture quality to captivate and engage users, while also promoting improved organization and productivity. We are thrilled to demonstrate the full capabilities of our innovative new display to CES 2018 attendees.”
The CJ791 features a 34-inch QLED LCD panel with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, a 1,500R curvature, a 178-degree viewing angle, and a QHD resolution of 3440×1440. In addition, the display offers support for 125 percent of the sRGB color spectrum. Likewise, the monitor is the first curved model to include Thunderbolt 3 which supports processing speeds of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) for connectivity across an array of docks, displays, and peripherals like Macs, USB type-C laptops, storage drives, and external graphics cards. Up to 85 watts (W) of laptop charging power can also be enabled via the Thunderbolt 3 connection. Finally, the screen also offers a few features geared toward gamers, including a four milliseconds (ms) response time, and a Game Mode with a dynamic gamma setting.
Pricing and availability for the Samsung CJ791 have not been announced yet, but the monitor will be on hand at the company's booth at CES 2018 in Las Vegas from January 9-12.
