Samsung CH711 Series Curved WQHD Quantum Dot Monitors Pose For CES Debut

Curved screen displays are more than just a passing fad, at least that is the case if you ask Samsung. As such, the South Korean electronics giant will unveil its new CH711 Quantum Dot series of monitors with curved displays at the Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas next week, the company announced. Both models that it plans to bring to the convention will be geared towards gamers.

One will be a 27-inch panel and the other will loom larger at 31.5 inches. Both will feature an 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle so that content will be easily viewed no matter where you might be in a room. Of course, the the most immersive spot will be smack dab in front of the curved panels so they can tickle your peripheral vision with visuals. In that regard, a curved panel makes more sense on a computer monitor where the viewer sits up close than it does on a large screen television.

Samsung did not mention what type of panel it is using for its CH711 series, though it did say these monitors will boast 125 percent sRGB color coverage and a WQHD (2560x1440) resolution. Combined with the wide viewing angle, we suspect something higher quality than a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel.

"Today’s multimedia consumers, quite rightly, have high expectations and demand a truly cutting edge, totally immersive experience that realizes the full potential of whatever they are playing or watching," said Seoggi Kim, Senior Vice President of Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business. "This year’s line-up of curved Quantum Dot monitors offers brilliant design, richer color and deeper contrast than ever before. We can’t wait to share them with the world at CES 2017 in Las Vegas."

Samsung also plans to exhibit its recently announced CFG70 and CF791 Quantum Dot curved monitors. Designed for professionals and hardcore gamers, the 24-inch CFG70 and 27-inch CFG70 feature a 1,500R curvature, ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, and advanced calibration options for various types of games (FPS, RTS, and so forth).
