Not long after LG teased the new 34-inch “5K” monitor it plans to showcase at next week’s CES trade show, Samsung has announced a new widescreen panel of its own.

The latter Korean firm on Wednesday teased the CJ791, a not-imaginatively named 34-inch monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 3440 x 1440. That means it’s QHD, not 4K, and will thus not be as sharp as LG’s forthcoming screen. It is a curved panel, though, a form factor that makes more sense on the desktop than in the living room.

This is another one of Samsung’s quantum-dot-using QLED panels, which the company says have a 4ms response time and 178-degree viewing angle. Naturally, Samsung is hyping the improved black levels and brightness that QLED usually brings (albeit to a lesser degree than OLED), but we’ll have to see the panel for ourselves before making any judgments.
