Samsung unveils new 4K IPS monitor with 10-bit colour and HDR

This week, Samsung launched its new S27A800U display. Aimed at professionals, this latest monitor packs a 27-inch IPS panel with 4K resolution and HDR10 capability. 

The 27-inch 4K IPS panel of the Samsung S27A800U features a 5ms G2G response time and offers wide 178º/178º viewing angles, so colours should remain uniform across the panel when looking at it from various angles. Other features include 10-bit (8bit + FRC) colour depth and HDR10 capability. However, it is not the brightest monitor on the market, with a typical brightness of 300 nits. The contrast ratio is 1000:1 out of the box, although the monitor ships with a Dynamic Contrast feature that can boost this.

The Samsung S27A800U also features flicker-free and low blue light modes, which are certified by TÜV Rheinland. Available video outputs include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 and a USB-C port with DisplayPort Alternative Mode, capable of delivering 90W of power.

As you would expect, there is also USB-passthrough, with 3x USB-A ports, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones. The included stand supports tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustments.

Pricing and availability has not been announced yet, but we should see this monitor popping up at retail this month.
