Samsung is going to dominate the monitor market once again this year, with a brief tease of a new 49-inch 5120x1440 display with a refresh rate of 120Hz... but what about 4K?
We're already expecting both ASUS and Acer to release 4K 120Hz gaming displays in the coming months, but from what we've seen and heard so far they'll be relatively small at just 27 inches. Samsung's purported 4K 120Hz gaming display is a much larger 31.5-inch panel, which is suited to 3840x2160 much better than can-you-even-see-it 27 inches at 4K.
Samsung won't be the first with a 4K 120Hz monitor, as that will go to Wasabi Mango and the UHD430 which is a gloriously huge 43-inch 4K 120Hz monitor that currently sells on eBay for $1399. I'd expect Samsung's 31.5-inch 4K 120Hz monitor to be more expensive, but we won't know exact pricing until next month where I'm sure the company will show it off during Computex 2018 with an expected July 2018 release.
