It's been a while since we've had news on where the panel industry is heading next year. TFTcentral posted a couple updates in May, although they focus on high end products. Lately, in fact, it all seems to be about the high end: the HDR Rog Swift, or the HDR Predator, or 1440p curved ultrawides... They sound great, but I wonder what's happening in the lower end of the spectrum - how are low and mid panels improving, way, in 29" ultrawides? If you look at the 2016, 2017 or 2018 models, they're pretty much the exact same stagnant technology - with the exception of say, LG's 29WK600 doing the absolute minimum by adding HDR10 support but not the hardware capacity to show it. At some point, and I'm betting that's 2019, they'll have to offer something in mid and low tiers for people to buy new models, otherwise there is no reason to spend the money. IPS and Freesync at sub-$400 models is old news. They're definitely not going to get FALD backlights anytime soon. But what about %90 DCI P3 coverage? I'd buy a new monitor just for the better colors. Maybe DisplayHDR400 certification, which should be the absolute bare minimum, I'd hope for DisplayHDR600 to become quite commonplace. What about you low/mid range monitor users? What do you want/expect from 2019?
