Samsung's New 49″ Curved QLED Gaming Monitor

by Michael Satterfield

One of the coolest new products to come out at CES 2020 was the new Samsung Odyssey gaming monitors which include a radically new curved display and the latest in QLED technology. The G9 model measures in at a category-leading 49" while the smaller G7 models are offered in a 27" and 32."

The new Odyssey portfolio proves that Samsung is continuing to drive innovation with industry-leading technology and design that allow gamers significantly better performances, Samsung’s new curved gaming monitor line-up has been completely redesigned to give gamers an entirely new and immersive experience.

The G9 has a striking new design with a glossy white exterior and a futuristic infinity core lighting glowing rear core, which includes 52 colors and five lighting effect options. The design and lighting effects stand out from the competition and complement any gaming setup.

The G7 has been completely redesigned with a sleek, matte black exterior and color-changing rear core lighting that can remain static or dim during gameplay, as well as change colors based on gamers’ preferences. In addition, the G7 has added dynamic shapes and lighting to the monitor`s front bezel.

The monitor`s performance have been certified by TÜV Rheinland, a leading international certification organization that has awarded Samsung the industry`s first high performance 1000R curved display and Eye Comfort certificate. Gamers can benefit from 1ms response time and 240hz RapidCurve™, putting themselves in the middle of the action.

Pricing has not been released but I expect the G9 to be priced at $1,800 if not higher and will be released in April/May 2020.
