Samsung display panels might go from impressive to jaw-droppingly over the top later this year. The company is reportedly planning to produce a 49-inch, curved, double full HD display panel. Oh my.
This isn't a complete monitor, to be clear, but only the display component that can be used to make Samsung-branded monitors or sold to third parties. The component is essentially two 1080p displays smashed together with 3840-by-1080 resolution. Such a massive panel sounds like something you might find in a video editing bay or another professional setting, but this unit is (rather unbelievably) meant for consumers, based on a report from TFT Central.
The new panel would be part of Samsung's upcoming "Grand Circle" format. It's not clear exactly what that means, but presumably we're talking about large panels with some serious curves that provide an immersive experience for gaming and video.
