Samsung will be showcasing new Odyssey OLED gaming monitors at CES 2024 next week, including the Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SD model), Odyssey OLED G8 (G80SD model), and Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD model).
The Odyssey OLED G9 is a 49” curved ultra-wide gaming monitor with DQHD (5,120 x 1,440) resolution, a 32:9 aspect ratio, and other upgraded features. The Odyssey OLED G8 is the first flat 32” Samsung OLED gaming monitor with 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. Both monitors have a 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms GTG response time. The Odyssey OLED G6 is a smaller 27” QHD (2,560 x 1,440) monitor that supports a 16:9 aspect ratio, 360Hz refresh rate, and 0.03ms GTG response time.
All three new models feature OLED Glare-Free technology that minimizes light reflections, enabling an enhanced viewing experience without extra equipment. You can play games with consistent brightness and colour in nearly any lighting environment, says Samsung.
With VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400, the monitors deliver detail and vivid colours independent of the game or content being displayed. Support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro affords smooth, low-latency HDR gaming.
Each new monitor has two HDMI 2.1 ports, a USB hub, and a DisplayPort 1.4 input. They are VESA mount compatible and come with a height adjustable stand (HAS) that features tilt, swivel, and pivot control points.
The top-line Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 now offer Multi Control, a new feature that allows you to easily seamlessly transfer images and/or text between the Samsung monitor and other Samsung devices, including a compatible Galaxy Book, tablet, or phone, for a smoother, more efficient work process using a mouse and keyboard.
Additionally, the Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 have a Samsung SmartThings Hub built-in hub for connecting to various IoT devices that are compatible with Matter and the Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA), for device control.
You can also watch TV on these monitors since they come with the Samsung Smart TV platform along with the Samsung Gaming Hub built in, providing access to streaming and cloud gaming services without downloads, storage constraints, or the need for a PC/console.
For the first time, Samsung has brought flat OLED options to the Odyssey lineup and a 16:9 aspect ratio to the Odyssey OLED G8 and Odyssey OLED G6. The new models boast a slim metal design and include new Core Lighting+ to fit in the slim bezels. Core Lighting+ emits ambient light from the back of the monitor. With a lighting circle four times slimmer than the previous model (G95SC model), it fits in seamlessly with the slim 3.9mm metal bezel. There’s also a new slim metal stand that adopts a tool-free assembly structure, using a 3mm metal plate.
