IFA 2018 is just a few days away, which means we're already starting to see companies trickle out new product announcements ahead of the show. And it appears Samsung is eager to be among the first, taking the wraps off of the CJ79 monitor, a "first-of-its-kind" curved QLED display with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
In terms of its base specs, the CJ79 is a 34-inch ultrawide monster that packs a resolution of 3,440x1,440. That's in addition to a 100Hz refresh rate with a 4ms response time and two 7-watt speakers. As for picture quality, the company claims 125 percent coverage of the sRGB color spectrum and a 3,000:1 contrast ratio. AMD FreeSync is also on board, so you can cut down on stutter and screen tearing during any intense gaming sessions.
The real highlight here, however, is the inclusion of two Thunderbolt 3 ports that can handle everything from your display signal to data and power. From Samsung:
Compatible with Macs and PCs, the CJ79 features two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports that transmit display, data and power at a superhero processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gpbs), eight times faster than USB 3.0, and simultaneously charges devices up to 85 watts(W), all through a single cable.
According to Samsung, the CJ79 is currently available in Europe only. There's no firm release date for the rest of the world, but Samsung says it will arrive "soon." Thus far, it doesn't appear to be available at any online retailers and Samsung is mum on pricing. But we'd expect it to pop up on Amazon for European buyers in short order.
Surface Duo is better at multitasking than Galaxy Z Fold 2. Here's why.
The $2,000 Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and $1,400 Microsoft Surface Duo are garnering many headlines because of pricing, and they both "fold" in some manner. But these devices are radically different, a point demonstrated with great effectiveness by @iAm_erica in this new video.
