After launching its ultra-premium Odyssey G9 monitor with a massive 49-inch curved screen and “dual QHD” resolution in 2020, Samsung is set to give the panel a major upgrade this year. The 2021 version of the Odyssey G9 adds to the quantum mini-LED backlighting, while retaining a futuristic tron-like design aesthetic featuring a white back panel and a flashing blue ring on the rear.
Borrowed from its television range, mini-LED technology provides this year’s Odyssey G9 with two key elements for gamers and improved contrast and brightness. Samsung claims that it is bringing both quantum mini-LED enhancements and quantum matrix technology to Odyssey for the first time. Combined with an immersive 1000R curvature, the Odyssey G9 should have an eye-catching screen for immersive gameplay, ensuring that you can surround yourself and not miss any significant action.
Last year’s Odyssey G9 supported both AMD Freeskin and Nvidia G-Sync screen technology, and we expect this year’s upgraded model to maintain compatibility with both standards.
In addition to the upgraded ODC G9, Samsung also unveiled a new digital whiteboard solution called the Samsung Interactive Display Flap 75. The Flip 75 comes with a 75-inch digital canvas that you can write, draw and edit, and Samsung says it is also available in 55-, 65- and 85-inch sizes. Although whiteboards are traditionally often found in offices and classrooms, Samsung is also positioning Flip for home use for better collaboration.
Samsung said in a statement, “Flip Hybrid offers connective features for consumers to succeed in working and learning, whether it is in the classroom, office or at home.” “With optimized 4K picture quality and easy-to-read visuals, teams of up to 20 can work together to sync personal devices for real-time content sharing. Flip allows users to view the presentation of a co-worker or teacher as if they were in person, offering the ability to work while remaining safe. “
Samsung stated that the Flip 75 comes with a 4K UHD resolution display to improve visual clarity, and a smooth pen-to-paper writing mode.
Samsung did not provide any pricing guidance or availability information for any product. For reference, Samsung’s Flip 2 65 retails for $ 2,599 while last year’s Odyssey G9 is currently discounted to around $ 1,500.
