Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 Gaming Monitor Announced! How are the features?
Samsung is one of the brands we know with professional-oriented monitors, not gaming monitors. The Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 seems to change this situation for good.
Announced within the scope of the IFA 2022 fair , the new screen broke new ground as the premium class OLED player monitor of the brand . So, what kind of features are in this series, which is also important for Samsung? Let’s see.
Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 Design
Samsung likes curved monitors more than flat monitors. The G8 is a good example for this.
The monitor comes with a curved panel, not a flat panel. Let’s underline that it has a structure that directly makes a difference in terms of design. The screen, which stands out with its 1800r curved structure, has thin bezels on the front.
At the back, the metal support leg that expands downward draws attention. We also see that an additional opening has been left in the support leg in order to use the ports placed right at the back.
The most striking part on the back is the Samsung Core Lighting Plus technology. This technology provides backlighting according to the colors of the image displayed on the screen.
I see it as one of the touches that players will love. After giving the entries, let’s take a look at the technical features of the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 series.
- Ports: Mini Display Port 1.4, Micro HDMI 2.1, USB-C, Power in.
- Pivot: There is height adjustment. It has a tilt function.
