Update: This post has been revised to reflect changes made to Samsung’s product description about The Link.
Samsung announced a mysterious new monitor at CES 2024 called The Link — and even though it wasn’t seen in person, they looked absolutely fascinating in the photo that was shared.
Very little information was given about them, but here’s what we do know: The Link monitors are “the world’s thinnest and lightest 4K 32-inch LED monitors,” and can “daisy-chain” together using pogo pins. That means connecting these
That is — that’s what Samsung originally published about The Link. The company quickly sent out an edited description to journalists, removing the claims that it was world’s thinnest and lightest, saying now only that is “super-thin.” More than that, any mention of pogo pins has been removed as well, only stating now that The Link monitors can connect to each “without a separate cable.”
Samsung has been tight-lipped about this product, so it’s hard to know how to take the corrections. Lest you think this is merely a concept, though, The Link did win an Innovation Award from CES as a real product, where is where the description was originally posted. For now, we’ll have to wait to hear more until we know if The Link uses pogo pins to connect or not.
Based on the one photo that was provided, The Link has an interesting design too. The screens look remarkably thin, with a flat metal base. The monitors can then line up with one another — presumably by pogo pins located in the bottom chin, which also acts as the stand. It’s just a rendering, of course, but if they end up with a design like this, they’ll certainly be unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
A lot more needs to be known about The Link, but I’ll always appreciate sleek and fresh designs that do something new. Obviously, we’ll be waiting to hear more about The Link in the future, including its price and release date.
