Samsung announces Odyssey G9 with Quantum MiniLED technology

Samsung recently announced that it will be upgrading its current flagship gaming product, the Odyssey G9, to be launched later this year. In view of the technical developments, Samsung wants to stay up to date and is therefore planning an improved version of the Odyssey G9. Only last year the South Koreans released the previous model with a huge 49 inch diagonals in 32: 9 dual wide QHD format and a 1,000R curvature.

The basic specifications of the successor model should largely correspond to the predecessor and also resolve with 49-inch dual wide QHD (5,120 × 1,440 pixels) in ultra-wide 32: 9 format, via a Quantum Dot VA panel in 240 Hz including Adaptive-Sync (AMD FreeSync, Nvidia G-Sync compatible) and remain almost unchanged with a 1,000R curvature that is distinctive for this size. 

The main differences of the newly launched Odyssey G9 are likely to be HDR 2000 as well as the new so-called Quantum Matrix backlight (uses Quantum dots and mini LEDs behind the VA panel and ensures higher contrast values). With HDR 2000, peak brightnesses of 2,000 cd / m² should be possible, twice as many if you compare this with the current Odyssey G9. The mini-LEDs used should be able to illuminate significantly more zones than is the case with normal LEDs and thus ensure a visually more homogeneous and uniform image.

More detailed key data regarding a presentation date or an end customer price have not yet been communicated, as expected, the price will at least be based on the previous model.
