Samsung today unveiled three new models of its display line for 2022. All of these are scheduled to be officially announced during CES 2022 from 5.-7. January in Las Vegas.
The first of these new monitors is the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8. This is a 32-inch screen with the world’s first 4K 240Hz panel. It also has a 1000R curvature and Quantum Mini LED backlight.
The Mini LED backlight system uses devices that are 1/40 the size of conventional LED devices. With Samsung’s Quantum Matrix and Quantum HDR 2000 technologies, the screen can achieve up to 2000 nits of maximum brightness in HDR content with 4096 steps of backlight adjustment.
The monitor also supports two HDMI 2.1 ports and a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection. The Auto Source Switch + function automatically switches sources when a connected device is switched on. The CoreSync function adjusts the RGB illumination on the back of the screen to match the content on the screen.
The next model is the Smart Monitor M8, which has a webcam that works with the built-in Google Duo app. The screen also comes pre-installed with apps for streaming services, so you can use the screen as a smart TV without having to connect to a source device. It has a 32-inch panel with UHD resolution, and you also get a wireless remote control similar to the ones you get with Samsung TV.
Finally, there is the Samsung S8, which is designed to create content. It comes in 32-inch and 27-inch sizes with UHD resolution and is the world’s first monitor to be certified as glare-free by Underwriters Laboratories.
The S8 has 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification (32-inch only) and wired LAN support. It has USB-C connection and can be connected to supported laptops to send video and audio signals to the monitor and Ethernet data and 90W power from the monitor to the laptop.
The screens are scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2022. More information will be revealed during CES 2022.
