The CES 2023 exhibition has not yet started its work (its opening will take place on January 5), but companies are already announcing the products they are going to demonstrate at it. Samsung Electronics already told what exactly they were going to bring to the exhibition. In particular, the company will show an updated line of Odyssey monitors, namely the Neo G9 and OLED G9 models.
Neo G9 (G95NC), according to Samsung Electronics, will be the world’s first ultra-wide gaming monitor with a resolution of “double 4K” (Dual UHD): this is 7,680×2,160 points with an aspect ratio of 32:9.
The 57-inch screen is made using quantum mini LED technology, has a curvature of 1000R (radius 1 m), and VESA Display HDR 1000 certification. The screen in the Neo G9 is matte, so the image should not have “parasitic reflections” of the room or the user himself. The monitor supports DisplayPort 2.1, the maximum screen refresh rate is 240 Hz.
OLED G9 (G95SC) is another model in the Odyssey line, this time with a panel based on QD OLED technology. The diagonal of the screen is 49”, it is also an ultra-wide monitor with an aspect ratio of 32:9, a resolution of Dual QHD (5,120×1,440 dots) and a curvature radius of 1.8 m (1800R). The refresh rate of the screen in the OLED G9 is also 240 Hz, the manufacturer indicates a response time of 0.1 ms.
The OLED G9 has a built-in Smart Hub that allows its owner to use apps like Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube without involving a PC.
In addition to the Odyssey gaming line, Samsung Electronics will also show at CES 2023 a monitor for professional work with graphics – ViewFinity S9 (S90PC). This is a 27-inch model with a 5K resolution (5,120 x 2,880 dots), with extended color coverage covering 99% of the DCI-P3 space, and factory calibration (claimed color accuracy – average value ΔE ≦ 2).
The manufacturer notes that the ViewFinity S9 has a built-in Color Calibration Engine tool, thanks to which the user will be able to adjust the image parameters: gamma, white balance, etc., using their own smartphone (requires the proprietary Samsung Smart Calibration application). The monitor also has a built-in 4K SlimFit camera and native support for video conferencing through apps like Google Meet in Smart Hub.
And the last model that Samsung Electronics will demonstrate at CES 2023 is Smart Monitor M8 (M80C). This is a “universal” 4K monitor with a built-in Smart Hub shell and the Samsung Gaming Hub game streaming platform. Smart Monitor M8 is presented in one more diagonal – 27″ (in addition to the 32″ model of last year).
Smart Monitor M8 is offered in four color solutions: blue (Daylight Blue), green (Spring Green), pink (Sunset Pink), and white (Warm White) – as you can see, it does not have the traditional black option for desktop monitors.
According to the manufacturer, thanks to the built-in SmartThings Hub, hundreds of compatible devices can be connected to the Smart Monitor M8 to create a “smart home”: lamps, cameras, incoming calls, etc. This is done with the support of Matter functionality and the Home Connectivity Alliance standards, which Samsung Electronics joined in early 2022.
