Samsung’s bringing new Odyssey OLED Gaming Monitors to CES 2024, including 27″, 32″ and 49″ displays

    With the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show kicking off next week, Samsung has pre-announced its new Odyssey OLED gaming monitors, set to be showcased at the event. 

    This year Samsung will expand on its successful Gaming Monitor line-up with the launch of three new OLED models. The new OLED models deliver incredible details and performance that gamers look for in their monitors, with the line-up including:

    • Odyssey OLED G9 – a 49” curved ultra-wide gaming monitor with DQHD (5,120×1,440) resolution and a 32:9 aspect ratio, among other upgrades
    • Odyssey OLED G8 – Samsung’s first flat 32-inch Samsung OLED gaming monitor with 4K UHD resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio
    • Odyssey OLED G6 – a 27″ QHD (2,560×1,440) monitor which supports a 16:9 aspect ratio, 360Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms GTG response time

    The Odyssey OLED G9 is a 49″ curved ultra-wide gaming monitor with DQHD (5,120×1,440) resolution and a 32:9 aspect ratio and other upgraded features.[1] The Odyssey OLED G8 is Samsung’s first flat 32-inch Samsung OLED gaming monitor with 4K UHD (3,840×2,160) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. Both monitors have a 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms GTG response time[2]. The Odyssey OLED G6 is a 27″ QHD (2,560×1,440) monitor that supports a 16:9 aspect ratio, 360Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms GTG response time.

    “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 personalizes their gaming experiences — meeting and exceeding their evolving needs.”

    Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics

    The monitors deliver incredible details and vivid colors independent of the game or content being displayed. What’s more, they support AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro for ultra-smooth, low-latency HDR gaming.

    The three new monitors bring comprehensive physical connectivity, with two HDMI 2.1 ports, a USB hub and a DisplayPort 1.4 input. Users can also enjoy better comfort and convenience with VESA mount compatibility and a height-adjustable stand that features tilt, swivel and pivot control points.

    The Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 now offer Multi Control, a new feature that provides seamless device connectivity for an easy multi-device experience. Multi Control allows users to seamlessly transfer images and/or text between their Samsung monitor and other Samsung devices — including their tablet or phone — for a smooth and efficient work process using their mouse and keyboard.

    Additionally, the Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 include the Samsung SmartThings Hub. With the built-in hub, users can connect to various IoT devices that are compatible with Matter and the Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA), for device control.

    When switching from work to play, the Odyssey OLED G9 and Odyssey OLED G8 monitors are all-in-one entertainment hubs. Equipped with the Samsung Smart TV platform and Samsung Gaming Hub, they provide access to streaming and cloud gaming services without storage constraints or the need for a PC/console.

     For the first time, Samsung has brought flat OLED options to the Odyssey lineup, and a 16:9 aspect ratio to the Odyssey OLED G8 and Odyssey OLED G6. The new models leverage the Odyssey OLED lineup’s unique, slim metal design, and include new Core Lighting+ to fit in its slim bezel.

    Core Lighting+ helps immerse users in the environments of their games and entertainment by emitting ambient light from the back of the monitor. There’s also a new slim metal stand that adopts a tool-free assembly structure, using a 3mm metal plate that provides harmony with the display design and opens up space for other devices.

    With the unveiling of these new models, Samsung has further strengthened its OLED lineup and bolstered its leadership position in the gaming monitor market. Together, the Odyssey OLED innovations and the continued advancements of the Odyssey Neo series — which saw the release of the world’s first Dual UHD gaming monitor last year with the 57-inch Odyssey Neo G9 — are delivering features and performance that will help define the future of gaming.
