Samsung just announced a quantum dot curved monitor that was built especially for gamers. The curved monitor appears to target Mac designers are users because of its design. This monitor comes in two sizes, 27-inch and 31.5-inch. It also has 2,560 x 1,440 resolution with a 1,800R curvature.
In order to make it easier for its users, Samsung designed the cables hidden in the stand so that the monitor can be flipped to a vertical position. This is not the first time Samsung uses the quantum dot technology. This tech is similar to the OLED tech.
The quantum dot technology has been used by Samsung in TVs for some time now. Despite this, the tech hasn’t been used for monitors until recently. Some models have been unveiled at IFA 2016 just a few months ago.
Tech experts are debating between these two technologies OLED which is used by LG and quantum dot which is used by Samsung. A quantum dot is considered to be better for gaming because it doesn’t have lag issues like OLED. This is why many experts think that this one is better for curved monitors.
Many experts also agree that a curved monitor makes more sense than a curved TV because users are much closer to the monitor than the TV. Samsung announced that this technology is better for curved monitors and that is why they started to produce them.
This technology has more vibrant colors than the OLED tech and it has a great graphic too. It is a great development for Samsung which just announced that they are going to produce robotic vacuums that will be connected to Alexa with the help of Amazon Echo speakers.
This has been a great year for Samsung and 2017 is going to be the same, apparently. They are staying ahead of the game in order to keep their place on the market. The curved monitor is going to be unveiled at CES 2017 just like the robotic vacuum.
The availability and the price of these two products remain unknown for now. We are going to find out those details in a few days when they are unveiled. We’ll just have to wait a little longer before we can enjoy these products.
