Samsung is the only TV manufacturer that still bets on curved panels, which seem to be a little more successful among PC gamers, but this type of monitor was unknown until now and it will challenge game developers with a form factor yet unknown.
This monitor feels like putting two 1,920 x 1,080 monitors next to each other, which translates into a quite weird 3,840 x 1,080 pixels resolution packed in a 49-inch diagonal panel that makes up a new widescreen format with a 32:9 aspect ratio.
The specifications are promising and this monitor might turn into one of those gaming monitors that any of us would want at home. It has HDR support, while its brightness does not seem to help the monitor excel in this area since it only has 300 cd/m2.
The monitor has a high-quality static contrast ratio thanks to Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology and its last-gen VA panel, providing a contrast ratio of around 2,400-3,000:1.
It features a 1 ms response time and 10-bit color per channel capable of a color reproduction palette of 1,070 million color shades, which enables the monitor to achieve an 88% NTSC color gamut coverage.
