Samsung has recently announced three new monitors for different use cases: the Odyssey Neo G8 for gaming, the M8 smart monitor and the S8 for creators and designers. Impressively, the new Odyssey Neo G8 is also the world’s first 4K, 240Hz monitor.
Starting with the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8, this is the world’s first 4K, 240Hz MiniLED gaming monitor, packing a 32-inch curved screen with a 1000R curvature. In addition, it uses Samsung’s Quantum Matrix to offer a maximum brightness of 2000 nits, has a 12-bit colour depth and a 1M:1 contrast ratio.
There’s a lighting system on the back of the monitor that automatically matches the screen’s colour when CoreSync is enabled. Other features like Auto Source Switch+ automatically detect and change to the latest source to be connected to the monitor. Connectivity ports include 2x HDMI 2.1 connectors and a DisplayPort 1.4.
The Samsung M8 smart monitor is still a concept, but it already sounds quite promising. Designed to offer users a multipurpose display, the M8 allows users to enjoy multiple OTT services, connect IoT devices via the built-in SmartThings hub, or access work-related web services like Microsoft 365 through the Workspace feature. Moreover, there’s Game Home, which users can use to cloud stream games directly to the monitor.
Besides all these unique features, the M8 also brings a few other nifty additions, like a detachable webcam, a HAS (Height Adjustable Stand) stand and remote control. The whole set of connectivity ports hasn’t been shared yet, but it’s known that it will have a USB-C port with 65W power delivery.
Lastly, there’s the Samsung S8, which will come in both 32 and 27 inch sizes. These are the monitors to be certified by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) as glare-free, but there’s more to them than just that. Covering 98% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut, wired LAN support and a USB-C port with 90W power delivery, the S8 monitors will undoubtedly be a good companion for designers and creators alike. In the case of the 32-inch S8 monitor, it’s also certified as a VESA DisplayHDR 600.
