For CES 2023, Samsung has prepared several new computer monitors that feature original features. For example, the new version of the Odyssey Neo G9 (a 49-inch model under that name was already released in 2021) is positioned as a “super ultra-wide curved display” and has a screen diagonal of 57 inches.
The device based on Mini-LED technology supports a resolution of 7680×2160 pixels (32:9 aspect ratio). The horizontal dot count corresponds to the 8K UHDTV standard, while the vertical dot count corresponds to 4K. It is also noted that this is one of the first gaming monitors to support the DisplayPort 2.1 interface. And yet the novelty provides an image refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. Unfortunately, more detailed specifications and price of the 57-inch Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 monitor are not specified. The device should go on sale later this year.
Additionally, Samsung has revealed the Odyssey G95SC monitor, a 49-inch model that is claimed to be the world’s first OLED gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio. The company also reminded that the 34-inch Odyssey G8 QD-OLED monitor, which debuted in the fall during IFA 2022, will be released “very soon”. The Odyssey G95SC has a 1800R curved panel with a resolution of 5120×1440 pixels that delivers up to 240Hz. Support for HDR True Black 400 is announced, which indicates a peak brightness of 400 nits. While the monitor is designed to connect to powerful gaming PCs or consoles, it also supports the Samsung Gaming Hub. This allows you to connect a wireless controller and play games on cloud services such as Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now. And Smart Hub support gives you access to smart TV apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and more. The monitor has Mini DisplayPort, Micro HDMI 2.1 and USB-C connectors with support for charging up to 65W. The Samsung Odyssey G95SC gaming monitor will go on sale later this year at an undisclosed price.

The monitor has a resolution of 5120×2880 pixels and is capable of reproducing 99% of the DCI-P3 color space. Reported support for HDR600. HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C and DisplayPort connectors are available for connecting signal sources. The device allows you to rotate the display to portrait orientation. The monitor comes pre-installed with Tizen TV OS, so the user will be able to access streaming applications even without connecting external signal sources. The package includes a 4K webcam that can be used for conferences. The software is able to automatically zoom and track the object in front of the camera. And the Samsung ViewFinity S9 monitor can also charge a laptop battery with up to 96W of power. The novelty should go on sale at the beginning of this year, but its price has not yet been reported.
