Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Gaming Monitor (G95NC)
For the first time, the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Gaming Monitor has a 57-inch UHD display with a 32:9 aspect ratio and a 7,680 x 2,160 resolution. With VESA Display HDR 1000 specification and quantum micro LED technology, its 1000R curved 57″ panel produces outstanding imaging in all game environments, including dark and light scenarios. During the most intense gaming sessions, the Matte Display minimises distractions by reducing light reflection on the screen. A 240Hz refresh rate is also supported by the Odyssey Neo G9, ensuring that gamers won’t miss anything during frantic action.
Additionally, it has the first DisplayPort 2.1 support ever, which transfers data around twice as quickly as the previous DisplayPort 1.4 standard. Additionally, the new DP2.1 enables information to be transmitted without distortion using the lossless industry-standard Display Stream Compression (DSC).
Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC)
The newest model in the Odyssey family, the Odyssey OLED G9, is a dual quad-HD 49″ 1800R curved display with a 32:9 aspect ratio. Its OLED illumination using quantum dot technology is pixel-by-pixel regulated, enabling almost unlimited colour contrast ratios. The Odyssey OLED G9’s 0.1ms reaction time and 240Hz refresh rate help to prevent lagging and skipping during gameplay.
The OLED panel delivers real RGB and true black without the use of colour filters, enabling a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. It also illuminates each pixel separately and does not rely on a backlight. The Odyssey OLED G9 also makes use of apps from partners like Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube through Smart Hub, which enables customers to access a variety of over-the-top media via an Internet connection and without a PC.
It also has Samsung Gaming Hub, an all-in-one game streaming platform that enables players to find and play cloud-based games from partners like Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now without a console or game downloads.
Samsung ViewFinity S9 (S90PC)
The newest monitor in Samsung’s portfolio is the ViewFinity S9. For the first time, it has a 5K 27-inch screen and is designed with creative professionals like graphic designers and photographers in mind. Even in complex or nuanced visual contexts, its 5,120 x 2,880 resolution and wide colour gamut of 99% DCI-P3 offer sharp, true-to-form details, and its average Delta E 2 colour accuracy also creates clear, exact colour representation.
The monitor’s built-in Color Calibration Engine provides accurate screen colour and brightness, and users can use their cellphones to modify white balance, gamma, and RGB colour balancing for flawless accuracy. The Matte Display reduces glare and light reflection to lessen workplace distractions.
Users can effortlessly transfer enormous volumes of high-resolution video or other huge data sets from storage devices to their PC by connecting cameras and other devices to the monitor via USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 connections. The ViewFinity S9 Series includes a 4K SlimFit camera and offers native video conferencing with Samsung Smart Hub-compatible apps like Google Meet.
Smart Monitor M8 (M80C)
The Smart Monitor M8 is available in two new sizes, 27″ and 32″, both with 4K resolution, and has a sleek and slim design. Users get the optimal angle thanks to the height-adjustable stand with tilt support. Users can now see lengthy papers with less scrolling because of the screen’s ability to tilt 90 degrees. Additionally, it complies with VESA mount compatibility standards, which helps maintain a clutter-free environment and saves space.
Through the integrated SmartThings Hub, the Smart Monitor M8 can connect to, manage, and control hundreds of compatible connected devices, such as lights, cameras, doorbells, locks, thermostats, and more. Many of the ad-hoc apps on the Smart Monitor, such as SmartThings and the Smart Hub, now include mouse control features for more comfortable remote-free use.
Through Smart Hub, users of the Smart Monitor M8 have immediate access to Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, and other over-the-top services. Additionally, they have easy access to Samsung Gaming Hub, a platform for streaming games in its entirety.
The Smart Monitor M8’s inbuilt SlimFit camera has been improved to 2K quality and is compatible with video conferencing software like Google Meet.
The Smart Monitor M8 is additionally shielded by Samsung Knox Vault, which protects it from threats by encrypting user data and isolating stored files and information from the device’s primary operating system.
This monitor is available in four colours, making it compatible with any space: Warm White, Daylight Blue, Spring Green, or Sunset Pink.
