Philips 49″ 492P8 Curved Ultrawide Monitor Arriving in 2018

Philips 492P8 Monitor

Set to release Q2 2018 in the $1100 price range, the Philips 492P8 features a 49″ VA panel with a 1800R curvature, 32:9 3840×1080 resolution, and a relatively high peak brightness of up to 600 nits. A maximum refresh rate has yet to be reported.

The 492P8 uses the same panel as the newly release Samsung C49HG90 (which we recently posted about here) but unlike the C49HG90, the 492P8 will not feature a quantum dot-enhanced backlight or FreeSync support, and is intended for professional use.
