Samsung Australia has announced the local availability for its Odyssey OLED G9 gaming monitor and 2023 smart monitor line-up.  

The 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 gaming monitor is Samsung’s first OLED monitor to offer Dual Quad HD resolution (5,120 x 1,440) with a 32:9 ratio. It features a DisplayHDR True Black 400, 1800R curvature and AI upscaling technology supported by a 0.03ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time and 240Hz refresh rate. This is further enhanced by AMD FreeSync Premium Pro.

With the addition of the Neo Quantum Processor Pro, the Odyssey OLED G9 uses deep learning to intelligently analyse and upscale images to adjust brightness and contrast. The monitor also incorporates CoreSync and Core Lighting+ on the back to match the colours on-screen with built-in stereo speakers that deliver crisp sound.

The Odyssey OLED G9 is the first monitor to launch in Australia with Samsung Gaming Hub, in addition to Smart TV apps, providing access to streaming, gaming services and entertainment in one place.

Versatile connectivity options, including HDMI 2.1 and Micro HDMI 2.1, Display Port 1.4, and Auto Source Switch+ create cleaner connections from one central USB hub. The Height Adjustable Stand (HAS) enables users to find the perfect gaming or viewing position.

The Odyssey OLED G9 will be available to purchase from 24 July for RRP $2,699. Customers who pre-order the monitor via the Samsung Online Store will receive a bonus gift.

Samsung’s 2023 smart monitor line-up incorporates the new Smart Monitor M8 and M7 in 32-inches and the refreshed M5 range available in 32-inch and 27-inch screen sizes.

The 2023 Smart Monitor M7 has received multiple upgrades and feature enhancements from the previous generation to closer reflect the M8, including 4K resolution, HDR 10+ and 400 nit brightness, as well as colour coverage up to 99% sRGB colour gamut.

The new Smart Monitor M7 also features the same slim design as the M8, sporting a flat, super slim herringbone-patterned back that’s 11.39mm deep, and height-adjustable stand with tilt.

The 90-degree rotating screen enables users to view documents in a portrait orientation or consume images and videos in the format they were intended to be viewed.

There’s also easy access to streaming apps enhanced via the monitor’s built-in speakers and remote control. The Tizen OS-powered entertainment hub delivers access to Samsung TV Plus, the brand’s free ad-supported TV (FAST) and video-on-demand service that offers over 91 channels in Australia and thousands of shows and movies on-demand. 

The latest range of Smart Monitor M8, M7, and M5 models are also the first smart TVs to feature Samsung Gaming Hub enabling Australians to play games from top streaming partners, with no PC or gaming console required.

While each of the monitors include four ports, they can also wirelessly connect to compatible Android and iOS devices to view content from a smartphone, tablet, or PC on a bigger screen.

Samsung’s 2023 smart monitor range is now available to pre-order with an on-sale date of 27 July. The Smart Monitor M8 and M7 retail for $999 and $849 respectively with the Smart Monitor M5 available in 32-inch and 27-inch for $449 and $399 respectively.
