Samsung's plans for monitors in 2023 include Odyssey gaming screens, a new version of its Smart Monitor, and the ViewFinity S9, a 27-inch 5K monitor with accurate colours that is aimed directly at Apple and LG.
The 5120x2880 IPS display, according to Samsung, has a matte finish to reduce glare and covers 99 percent of the DCI-P3 wide colour gamut.
The ViewFinity S9 will provide support for HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, and DisplayPort. It can charge laptops with up to 96 watts of power. The sleek design and metal chassis of the S9 are comparable to those of Apple's Studio Display and LG's premium OLED displays.
Samsung has included its Tizen TV operating system in the ViewFinity S9, despite the fact that it is designed for professionals. Consequently, you will have access to all streaming applications even if the display is not connected to any external devices. It includes a 4K webcam that can be attached as needed for video calls, and according to Samsung, the software will automatically zoom in and track the subject intelligently.
As is customary for CES product announcements, Samsung has not yet provided pricing information for the ViewFinity S9 but says it will be available "early" in 2018. Apple's 27-inch Studio Display, when configured with the standard glossy display, begins at $1,599.
