Philips 499P9H 49-inch 32:9 5K monitor
Philips (or MMD) presented several new monitors at IFA 2018 that are aimed at professional users - the most extraordinary model is probably the new, curved 49-inch (124 cm) extra-wide monitor 499P9H in 32:9 format. A unique selling point compared to the 49" 32:9 models CJ890 and CHG90 from Samsung is the significantly higher resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels (5K in 32:9 format) - the Samsungs have only 3,840 × 1,080 pixels (Dual FullHD).

With its SuperWide format, the Philips 499P9H is designed to replace multimonitor setups with a single display. Unlike many other monitors of this size, it can be rotated, tilted and adjusted in height for optimum ergonomics. Philips has not yet published the exact technical data such as the color space coverage, but it is clear that it has USB-C as an image interface and features such as a Windows hello pop-up webcam, SmartErgo base and a zero power switch.

The new models Philips 349P9H, 329P9H and 349P7F are also designed for professional use and feature USB-C docking and 4-sided frameless displays, which make them ideal for multi-monitor setups. The Philips 349P9H uses a 34" (21:9) IPS panel with a 5K 21:9 resolution of 5,120 x 2,160 pixels, the 329P9H a 31.5" (16:9) panel with 3,840 x 2,160 and the 349P7F via a curved 34" (21:9) display.
The Philips 221B9T and 171B9T are touchscreen displays which are protected against the ingress of water and dust according to the IP54 standard and are therefore suitable for very special applications. Both models are equipped with a 21.5" or 17" TN Display 10-point multitouch panel.
The monitors Philips 276C8, 278E9Q and 328E9F have USB-C and UltraWide-Color technology to display larger color ranges. The 276C8 features a flat, extra slim 6.1mm thick screen, while the 278E9Q and 328E9F curved models are 9.94mm thick.
