Samsung tries to keep monitor leadership

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics announced on Jan. 3 that the company would showcase new models in its monitor lineup designed to deliver beautiful picture quality and intuitive features during the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show.

The Seoul-based company said that the 2022 monitor portfolio would bring out the best experiences while working, gaming or watching content at home.

The tech giant said that its latest monitors include features for high-performance gaming as well as smart and pro-level elements, such as the Odyssey’s Quantum Mini LED backlight panel and HDR 2000; the Smart Monitor’s do-it-all screen with smart features; and the High-Resolution Monitor’s comfortable ergonomics.

“Samsung’s 2022 lineup represents the next generation in monitor innovation with offerings that meet the demands of competitive gamers, professional designers, and everyone in between,” Samsung Executive Vice President Ha Hye-sung said.

“As the work and entertainment worlds continue to evolve, we are proud to deliver monitors that boost users’ experiences from the comfort of their homes.”

Included in its 2022 monitor lineup are the Odyssey Neo G8, the Smart Monitor M8, and the High-Resolution Monitor S8.

The Odyssey Neo G8 is the world’s first monitor to feature a 4K 1000R curved screen with 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time (GtG), according to Samsung.

The firm said that the Smart Monitor M8 offers space efficiency with an ultra-slim thickness of 11.4mm, which is about three-quarters thinner than the previous model.

Available in 27-inch and 32-inch models, the High-Resolution Monitor S8 delivers professional-level UHD performance for creators and designers who need the highest levels of accuracy and range when working in the office or at home.

“Delivering up to 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, the High-Resolution Monitor S8 provides an ultra-wide range of rich and nuanced colors,” a Samsung official said.

Samsung Electronics is the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones, memory chips, and flat-panel displays.
