The Odyssey OLED G9 and G8 displays are one-stop entertainment centers when transforming from work to play. They provide streaming and cloud gaming services without the need for a PC or console, downloads, or storage restrictions; all credit goes to the Samsung Smart TV platform and Samsung Gaming Hub.

Which special features will be included?

  • Regardless of the game or material being shown, the monitors’ VESA DisplayHDRTM True Black 400 technology produces incredibly detailed and vibrant colors.
  • Also, for very smooth, low-latency HDR gaming, they feature AMD FreeSyncTM Premium Pro.
  • With a USB hub, two HDMI 2.1 connections, and a DisplayPort 1.4 input, the three new displays provide extensive physical connectivity.
  • VESA mount compatibility and a height-adjustable stand (HAS) with tilt, swivel, and pivot control points will improve user comfort and convenience.
  • Multi Control is a new feature available on the Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8, which offers seamless device connectivity for a better and easier multi-device experience.
  • To fit inside their thin bezels, the new models use innovative Core Lighting+ and feature the distinctive, slender metal appearance of the Odyssey OLED family.
  • Through the back of the display, Core Lighting+ emits ambient light to fully immerse users in the settings of their games and entertainment.
  • It also blends in perfectly with the thin 3.9 mm metal bezel; this is because of the lighting circle, which is four times thinner than the one on the G95SC model.
  • A new thin metal support is also added that uses a 3nm metal plate to assemble without the need for tools.

The release of these models has helped Samsung maintain its top spot in the gaming monitor industry and expanded its OLED portfolio.

Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, says,Along with game genres, gaming platforms are getting more diverse. Samsung’s new OLED Odyssey gaming monitors will empower gamers with more immersive game environments and innovative technology that personalize their gaming experiences, meeting and exceeding their evolving needs.”
