Philips Announces 499P9H 32:9 SuperWide Display Monitor - 49" VA, 5120 x 1440, HDR 400

Philips today announced another entry into their ultrawide monitors, with the SuperWide 499P9H piece of kit. This monitor packs a 32:9 aspect ratio, 49", 5120 x 1440 (dual Quad HD) VA panel for accurate colors and unmatchable horizontal screen real-estate. Its 1800r curvature ensures that more of the panel stays in your field of view (and at the same overall distance) without any color gradation or change - which would be hard on a VA panel anyway. It features VESA's HDR 400 certification, the lowest attributable to any monitor, a pop-up webcam for the privacy-minded amongst us with support for Windows Hello.

A USB 3.1 type-C docking station, an RJ45 port por secure communication between devices, and ergonomic features such as a height-adjustable stand with swivel and tilt functions, VESA mount, Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode also make their appearances to round out the package. Connections are taken care by 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.0 b. The Philips 499P9H will be available starting from £989.00.

Interesting to note only the Samsung panel for 32:9 is being rated for HDR 1000.

HDR1000 is really hard task for literally everything. Im honestly very curious if it can actually deliver those specs.

How's the price delta between the two ?

Really, any manufacturer might be able to make a 5K display, 144Hz, 1000nits, FABL, Thunderbolt, Type-C, wireless charging, RGB(cough, cough), bla bla bla. But it will cost a kidney or two. Do you want that ? how many people will actually buy that ?

Now for that exact same spec. shave the the HDR1000 down to 600, and use a 3840x1600 / 3440x1440 instead, remove the Thunderbolt, remove the FABL or add it in partial, And you get a balanced decent monitor that cost 1/3 that. Now people will buy this, manufactures will ramp up production, prices will go down, in 2-3 years, your dream monitor will come in the same price too.

Too small for the resolution (seems like 2x 27" side by side). I would like to see ~60" variant of this resolution display (2x 31.5" side by side).
