Just as Apple is officially discontinuing their high-end Thunderbolt Display, Samsung Electronics said on Monday it plans to unveil three types of curved quantum dot monitors at the IFA 2016 event starting on Friday. This is the first time that Samsung has applied quantum dot technology for computer monitors since it unveiled the quantum dot super ultra-high definition television at the US consumer electronics trade show CES last year.


Samsung is scheduled to make the announcement at a Samsung event being held at 11 a.m. inside the Messe Berlin event center's City Cube Hall on Thursday. The curved displays aimed at gamers will be released in 24, 27 and 34" models.


As the first curved quantum dot gaming monitors, Samsung's CFG70 and CF791 express brilliant colors across a 125-percent sRGB spectrum, while employing an environmentally-safe cadmium-free design. This luminance emphasizes a range of otherwise-hidden game details in both light and dark settings, offering unprecedented visual realism designed to capture the attention of even the most hardcore gamers.


Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics stated that "As the gaming market continues to enjoy rapid worldwide growth, gamers expect advanced display technologies that can bring out the latest video game features and optimize the game-play experience. By enhancing our pioneering curved gaming monitors with quantum dot technology, our CFG70 and CF791 displays further surround players and make them feel as if they are part of the game. We are excited to demonstrate this futuristic and immersive gaming environment at IFA 2016."


The new CFG70 curved monitor incorporates a host of user-friendly features to create a premium multi-sensory gaming destination. The CFG70's "Super Arena" design aligns 1800R curvature with sound interactive LED lighting that lets players fully experience the thrill of victory. This format also includes 1 m/s moving picture response time, making it the first curved gaming monitor to offer such functionality. A rapid refresh rate of up to 144 Hz further ensures a seamless and uninterrupted presentation.


With a 1500R curvature (indicating a curvature radius of 1,500 mm) design, Samsung's CF791 is the most curved gaming monitor currently on the market. Combined with a 100 Hz refresh rate and embedded AMD FreeSync™ Technology, functionality that synchronizes screen refresh rates with gamers' AMD graphics cards, the CF791 monitor offers consistent full-screen presentation. Additionally, the CF791's ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio further preserves content quality during multi-screen competition.


Beyond its on-screen visual enhancements, Samsung's new CF791 monitor features a sleek composition that adds ambience and style to any environment. The display's boundless design removes visual distraction and helps gamers stay focused on the screen, rather than the display itself. Players also can customize the monitor's alignment to match their unique ergonomic needs through a vertically-adjustable stand.


The Korean Press is adding that Samsung will be introducing their next-gen smartwatch Gear 3 at IFA as well with no features being revealed at this time.


Apple's Quantum Dot Patent


For the record, Patently Apple covered Apple's latest patent application for a quantum dot display back in July of this year in a report titled "Apple Advances Work on Quantum Dot Displays for Future Macs, iOS Devices & Possible TV."

Apple's quantum dot displays are primarily aimed at the desktop market their patent filing notes that "Input-output circuitry in the device may be used to allow data to be supplied to the device and to allow data to be provided from the device to external devices. Input-output devices may include buttons, joysticks, scrolling wheels, touch pads, key pads, keyboards, microphones, speakers, tone generators, vibrators, cameras, sensors, light-emitting diodes and other status indicators, data ports, etc."


Though like any patent filing, Apple widens the possibilities of quantum dot displays in the future by pointing to other devices such as "a tablet computer, laptop computer, a desktop computer, a television, a cellular telephone, a media player, a wristwatch device or other wearable electronic equipment, or other suitable electronic device."


Whether Apple intends to reinvent their high-displays and release them at a later date is unknown at this time.
