CES 2018 is fast approaching, and companies are starting to take the wraps off of the tech they plan to show off at the annual tradeshow. In that spirit, Samsung is looking to make a splash by announcing the CJ791, a curved QLED ultra-wide display that Samsung says is the first to feature support for Thunderbolt 3.
As you'd expect from its ultra-wide designation, the CJ791's 34-inch panel features a 21:9 aspect ratio. That's backed by a 3440x1440 resolution, along with a four millisecond response time. The display also features a 1,500R curve and Samsung's QLED tech, which it says can reproduce colors "across a 125 percent sRGB spectrum."
This isn't Samsung's largest curved QLED display; that honor goes to its 49-inch gaming monster released in 2017. However, Samsung is hoping to appeal to both gamers and business users with the CJ791. And part of what may sway some is the inclusion of the Thunderbolt 3 port, which boasts fast connection speeds (40 Gbps) and can act as a laptop display while also providing power with a single cable.
Samsung is mum on pricing and availability, but we can likely expect to learn more when CES 2018 kicks off on January 9. It will also be interesting to see how Samsung's offering stacks up against LG's HDR monitor lineup that it plans to bring to CES.
