Samsung Working On New Mega-Wide Monitor Panel
According to a recent report, Samsung has revealed it’s working on several new panels which should go into production in August or September 2017. Though some are simply bigger and better than what the company is putting out now, there also seems to be a small revolutionary streak running through the Korean firm’s boardroom as they are also pushing a mega-wide, 49-inch panel with a spectacular 144Hz refresh rate, which would put Samsung in a position to dominate the high-end display market.
This behemoth would not just be huge, but would also feature both AMD FreeSync as well as Nvidia G-Sync, making it a must-have for gamers with deep pockets. It will have a resolution set at 3840 by 1080, a 5000:1 contrast ratio, 1800R curvature and a three-sided, frameless design. It will likely dominate any room its placed in, but should prove the be the absolute ultimate in viewing experiences.
The next monitor announced has much the same specs when it comes to resolution and curvature, but is, in essence, two 24.7-inch displays stuck together, creating a 44-inch display that can be divided up into two equal halves. Having a dual screen in a single package will likely appeal to both professional users as well as gamers, especially since it also will come in a 144Hz version as well as a 60Hz one. Last but not least is a 40-inch screen with specs that fit more into what competitors are offering, though the sheer size should be interesting to some buyers.
All three of these new screens will inject something new into the market, though of course the most anticipation is reserved for the 144Hz mega-wide screen display. Whether it will be a big seller remains to be seen, but there is no doubt many gamers will be dreaming about one day owning one.
