Philips has showcased their upcoming 492P8 display, which offers an ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio and a screen size of 49-inches. This display will use a Samsung made panel which unlike that company's C49HG90 will not feature Quantum Dot technology. 
 
Unlike Samsung's equivalent display, the Philips 3820x1080 492P8 is not designed for gaming and will feature a lower pricepoint, catering more to the professional market with a price tag that is said to be between $1000 and $1100 USD. This price is much cheaper than the Samsung C49HG90. 
 
At this time many detailed specifications are known about this display, though it will feature a 1800R curve and come with DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA display inputs.

I'd rather get the Samsung 32:9 monitor. Even though this is a professional monitor, I bet that the Samsung would still look nicerQuote

I'd go Samsung for gaming but for work this would be amazing. We typically use dual 25" displays so this would mean less cables and less mucking around. The hardest thing is that we generally don't have dual monitor stands so fitting them on your desk and lining them up properly is a right PITA.Quote

Peace
they seriously didn't care to add 21600 more pixels to have FULL dual monitors crammed into one?

On a side note: I was just astonished by the number of pixels difference between 3840x1080 and 3820x1080

//EDIT: I don't like those monitors at all... Usability seems quite awkward compared to a dual 1080p setup, because I wouldn't like to have to be gaming in windowed mode... Also, docking windows to the side of the monitor became a little weirder, because you don't have bezels in the middle anymoreQuote
