Samsung has also announced the worlds first 32-inch curved 4K UHD display. Pricing is going to be a big question for all three of these monitors - we don't anticipate that any of them will be cheap, so it's more a question of how much damage they'll do to our bank accounts. Samsung hasn't yet said how much the screens will sell for, nor do we have a launch date for them. It sports a 32:9 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate on a 49-inch display that features AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology to cut down on stutter and input latency. The operative words here are sleek, minimalist - and, in the case of the new CRG9 49-inch gaming monitor specifically, an ultra-wide piece of high-performance hardware. It also supports HDR10, giving gamers better brights, rich shadows and vibrant color, with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.

The screen is equivalent to two 27-inch WQHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also looks good for multitasking as its PBP (Picture-by-Picture) functionality allows two video sources to be viewed on the same screen. Each of these are aimed at different groups of people, from gamers to content creators.

Finally, we've got the UR59C 32-inch monitor, which nearly feels like standard fare compared to the other two.

An integrated clamp lets the Space Monitor attach to the edge of a desk or table, while a dual-hinge stand lets you adjust the height and angle.

The display is available in dark blue-grey, and features a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm. This practically gives you the screen real estate of two QHD monitors fused together. One of its main drawcards is as a space saving solution.

Samsung has "unboxed" a trio of monitors ahead of CES 2019, and while we'd normally gravitate to the screens featuring the highest resolutions and ridiculous screen sizes, we're most interested in the company's latest Space Monitor.

It also has a flexible arm to position the monitor close to you right on your desk, or as far back against the wall as you like, as shown below.

Samsung will release two variants of the Space Monitor: a 27-inch QHD model and a 32-inch UHD (4K) model. I like the concept of the Space Monitor and it looks like it would make a good pairing with a Mac Mini if you have limited space available.

The Samsung Space Monitor is up for pre-order now through BestBuy.com, Amazon.com and Samsung.com, and we expect to see the monitor more closely at CES.

We got a chance to try the new monitor recently, and we were impressed. Let us know in the comments section below.
