Samsung's Space Gaming Monitor is flexible to keep your desk uncluttered

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Space Gaming Monitor was revealed at Gamescom 2019.
  • This new monitor aims to keep your desk space clean by allowing you to push it out of the way when you don't need it.
  • The flexible hinge clamps to your desk, allowing you to pull the monitor forward or push it back against a wall.

Alongside a new curved 240Hz gaming monitor announced at Gamescom 2019, Samsung also took the wraps off of the Space Gaming Monitor. This new display carries forward the idea of saving desk real estate the Samsung first tried out with its standard Space Monitor, and it adds a little bit of extra gaming flair.

The key to the Samsung Space Gaming Monitor is that it foregoes a traditional monitor stand. Instead, you use a built-in clamp to secur the monitor to the back of your desk. Its flexible hinge can then be used to keep the display out of your way when you're not using it, or pulled toward you when you're ready to jump into some games.

As far as specs are concerned, you'll find several gaming-focused improvements here. The screen size is 32 inches and it packs a refresh rate of 144Hz and QHD resolution. There's also FreeSync support, so you can synchronize the frames coming out of your graphics card with the display's refresh rate to eliminate screen tearing and stuttering.

There's no release date or pricing information available for the Samsung Space Gaming Monitor just yet. However, if the concept has you intrigued, you can grab the original Space Monitor starting at $323.
