Samsung’s new monitors might be better curved than TVs ever were
The latest is the CH711 monitor from Samsung, a sleek curved model designed for gaming that uses quantum dot technology for what Samsung says is a “vivid, visually stunning picture.”
The snazzy white-bodied CH711 has 27-inch and 31.5-inch variations, but both offer 2,560 x 1,440 WQHD resolution, and have a curvature of 1,800R. That’s pretty darned curved, but that’s great if you’re playing games and watching movies from a few feet away, like Samsung’s relaxed test subject in the picture earlier.
The company promises a 178-degree viewing angle, anyway, and says the monitor gives a “richer and more vibrant color from any viewing distance.”
The new model is due out in early 2017, but will be on show at CES — along with Samsung’s other new curved quantum dot monitors, including the gaming-centric CFG70 and more workplace-focused CF791.
Samsung’s going hard on curved screens, but it will also be showing some regular flat monitors at the show, too — monitors like the still-to-be-releasedUH750, which the company says boasts a super-fast 1 ms response time.
