Samsung's Space monitors bring its minimalist TV aesthetic to your desk

Samsung's Space monitors bring its minimalist TV aesthetic to your desk

Samsung has a number of new monitors lined up for CES 2019, including one that's flawless for Mac mini owners with small desks.

Supporting an impressive 120Hz refresh rate, Samsung said users can play challenging high-quality games without any delay.

Those details could be revealed at CES 2019, though (and we suspect that anyone whose system can fully utilize the monitor won't really care about its price and instead prioritize experiencing their favorite games in the private equivalent to an IMAX theater).

Space Monitor gives users a unique arm stand, which can disappear into the back of the monitor's slim-bezel. FreeSync 2 HDR includes features like direct tone mapping to reduce latency and improve color fidelity, alongside the smoother frame display that's a hallmark of FreeSync panels. It has a 2,500:1 contrast ratio and full 3840×2160 4K UHD resolution.

There will be two Samsung Space Monitors, with a 27 inch Quad HD screen, while the 32 inch Space Monitor will offer 4K Ultra HD resolution. And because it only needs to clamp onto your desk, you don't need to drill holes in the wall or use a wall mount - making the Space Monitor a compelling choice for people with testy landlords. "First there is the CRG9 49" gaming monitor that features a super ultra-wide screen and dual QHD resolution (5120x1440).

Ltd. today announced three new monitors, the modern and minimalist Space Monitor, the CRG9 designed for an unparalleled gaming experience and the UR59C, a stunning 4K UHD curved monitor ideal for content creators.

The Samsung CRG9 is an absurd, absurdly gorgeous curved gaming monitor. Samsung's initial press release doesn't get into the hard specs of this thing, but it does mention that "power and HDMI cords" are run through the monitor arm for a cleaner look, suggesting that it doesn't have DisplayPorts. The 27-inch model offers WQHD resolution for incredibly detailed, pin-sharp images, while the 32-inch model presents content in 4K UHD.

As to when that is, we'll let you know closer to when it happens, though our guess would be that you have a few months before you can set your own eyes on these monitors for yourself.

Samsung didn't share pricing information or a release date for the CRJ9. The bigger monitor costs $499 and the smaller one is available at $399, according to Samsung's pre-order page.

Available in Dark Blue Gray, the UR59C has a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm with a fabric-textured rear casing.
