Samsung is hitting the CES 2019 floor with a unique new monitor designed to keep your desk as tidy as possible. Called the Samsung Space Monitor, the display attaches to the rear of your desk with a clamp, and can be pushed out of the way or brought down to desk-level with a rotating arm stand.
When you're not using the Space Monitor, it can be stood straight up above your desk, requiring only the small area of space taken up by the upper portion of its clamp, allowing you to utilize more desk space than a traditional monitor would allow. When you're ready to get to work on your PC, the monitor can be rotated down and toward you, allowing for any number of positions, including sitting flush with the desk.
A discrete cable management system also keeps your wires from ruining the otherwise-minimalistic look.
The Samsung Space Monitor comes in two flavors, a 27-inch QHD model or a 32-inch 4K model, and is available to preorder now ahead of its February 23 launch date for $500.
Samsung CRG9 and UR59C
In addition to the Space Monitor, Samsung has debuted a new gaming ultra-wide display and a 4K monitor build for content creators.
For gamers, the new CRG9 is a 49-inch monster of an ultra-wide, offering a 120Hz refresh rate and a dual QHD resolution (5120 x 1440). The monitor comes with AMD's Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR tech, which eliminates choppy gameplay and screen tearing. It also supports HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, making for super-black blacks, vivid colors, and high contrast.
Meanwhile, the UR59C is a 32-inch curved display that comes packing a 4K resolution. Designed for creators, the display is flanked by super-thin bezels that are designed to make the content your viewing or working with pop. The UR59C is available in "Dark Blue Gray" with a fabric texture on its rear casing and a depth of 6.7mm.
For now, there's no word on pricing or availability for either the CRG9 or UR59C.
