Philips Evnia 32M2C5500W unveiled as new 32-inch and 240 Hz gaming monitor from €549
Philips has unveiled a new gaming monitor and one that expands its nascent Evnia series. According to the company, it plans to sell the monitor as the Evnia 32M2C5500W, with its model number containing a nod to its display size. Specifically, the Evnia 32M2C5500W measures 31.5-inches across and has a 1000R curvature to create a more immersive experience.
In a press release, Philips states that the Evnia 32M2C5500W utilises a VA pane that outputs at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (1440p) with a 93 PPI pixel density and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio. Additionally, the vibrant panel delivers a 240 Hz native refresh rate, as well as 0.5 ms MPRT response times and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support to mitigate image tearing.
Moreover, Philips claims the Evnia 32M2C5500W reaches 500 nits, for which it has received VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. In a similar vein, the monitor offers 92% DCI-P3 colour space coverage, plus 100% and 122% coverages of the NTSC and sRGB colour spaces, respectively. Separately, Philips includes an adjustable stand, a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports limited to 144 Hz at 1440p and a DisplayPort 1.4 connection.
While the monitor lacks a modern USB Type-C port, there are four USB Type-A ports for connecting peripherals. At launch, Philips will sell the Evnia 32M2C5500W for €549 in the Eurozone and £429.99 in the UK. Currently, the company hopes to start selling the gaming monitor by the end of the month; please see Philips' website for more details.
