The company unveiled three new models, all with 1920x1080 native resolutions and 60Hz refresh rates - but with FreeSync over HDMI support. All three models use VA LCD panels, with brightness and contrast of 250 nits and 3000:1, respectively. The three new models unveiled by Samsung are all curved displays, with an 1800R (1800mm radius) curve, which is a pretty big curved compared to 2700R and 3000R curves.

Now, we have the CF591 which is a 27-inch model, the CF390 which arrives in a 23.5-inch, and a 27-inch variant. The differences between the CF591 and CF390 series is that the CF591 includes 117% of the sRGB color space, dual HDMI ports, a DisplayPort port, and built-in 5W speakers. The CF390 series only offers HDMI and VGA connectivity.

As for availability and pricing, Samsung will launch the monitors this month in the US, Europe and Asian markets - with other markets to follow in April. No pricing is available just yet.
