As far as the specifications are concerned, the Odyssey G9 features a 49-inch dual QHD (5120×1440) resolution, giving it an overwhelming immersion as if two 27-inch QHD monitors were placed side-by-side.

With 1000R QLED curved panel, Samsung Odyssey G9 screen provides maximum comfortable immersion to users as it helps maintain the same viewing distance at any angle and minimizes screen distortion. When viewed across the G9’s curved screen, game graphics appear more realistic for an optimized gaming experience.

Having a gaming monitor that provides high refresh rates and super-fast response times is just as important as equipping yourself with the best in-game items.
Apart from these features, Samsung Odyssey G9 also supports nvidia G-Sync Compatible, which reduces screen loss during high-definition gameplay, and AMD Pre-Sync Premium Pro, which automatically optimizes contrast ratio and colour depending on the game genre. On the design front, the black slim bezel on the front enhances the immersion, while the rear is enhanced by a high-gloss white material and infinity core lighting in 52 colours for a futuristic design.
Samsung further revealed that its Odyssey G9 gaming monitor comes with hdr10+ logo certification for HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology that optimizes brightness and contrast ratio for each scene to increase the three-dimensional image. This feature also enables one to achieve accurate colour expression for the first time in the monitor product.
