on


Today on 27 June, Samsun has come up with a new lineup named Odyssey Neo G8 & G7, which will cater to the gaming community.

Samsung claims that this monitor simultaneously supports 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 240Hz, the highlight of this monitor will be its curved design.

This will be the first of its kind, which will feature a 32-inch size, 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160), and a 1000R curvature curved design.

The monitor, dubbed the model name G85NB, is supposed to have a response time of 1 millisecond, i.e. 1/100th of a second. Based on the Grey To Gray technology, a unit of measurement of pixel speed. It is Used to measure the response time of gaming monitors. GtG means how long it takes for the pixel to go from one grey level to the next.

Key Highlights & Technology :

  • It will support max brightness up to 2000 NITS by utilizing Mini-LED, Quantum Matrix, and Quantum HDR 2000, which would be one 40th slimmer than existing LEDs as a light source.

Quantum Mini LED is similar to QLED, but the backlights get smaller. These LEDs are so small they can be almost as small as a single pixel. QLEDs are significantly larger than one pixel, while OLEDs are the size of a single pixel.

Quantum Matrix is Samsung’s proprietary image quality control technology.

Quantum HDR or High Dynamic Range is a photographic technique where three or more of the same scene are captured at different exposure values.

  • The monitor will support a fixed contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 that represents a static contrast ratio, which is a luminosity ratio comparing the brightest and darkest shade of the system produced simultaneously at any instant in time.

Local dimming is a technology that divides a TV’s LED backlights into zones, each of which can be dimmed individually or locally. The LED zones behind the darkest parts of the image can be dimmed to make the blacks look deeper, while the LEDs behind the brightest parts of the image can be turned up.

Samsung Prioritizes Faster Charging in 2024 Smartphones

Published

By


The first quarter of 2024 is already over; during this interval, Samsung has introduced several Galaxy smartphones of particular belonging, such as the flagship Galaxy S24 series, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35, the mid-range ones, the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy F15, the budgetable ones, and many more. But the fact is, after being the latest smartphones, they have a lack of ‘charging speed.’ 

Undoubtedly, Samsung is leading the tech industry with its top-notch features, design, and larger batteries, as compared to other Android manufacturers, but despite all this, it has a massive lack of charging speed. Samsung usually attaches larger batteries to its Galaxy smartphones to enhance the users’ non-stop-using experience. But a larger battery isn’t worth it unless it has a good charging speed. 

On the other hand, Chinese manufacturers are equipping their smartphones with charging speeds north of 100W, whereas 45W is the maximum speed you can get on Galaxy smartphones. However, even 45W charging is quite rare among Galaxy phones. Samsung has launched most of the Galaxy devices in the last couple of years, including the flagship with support for 25W. 

Here we are making things easy for you if you are looking to buy a Galaxy smartphone that debuted in 2024 with the support of 45W charging speed by mentioning a list of devices: 


The list is quite short, even considering that the Galaxy F55, M55, and C55 are just rebranded variants of the same smartphone for different regions. Now Samsung is setting up to launch its next-generation foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, in July, but it is yet to be confirmed whether these devices will get a boost in charging speeds from 25W or not.
