These new and updated models bring features that people want — as well as some they don’t expect — to deliver new experiences, no matter how they use their monitors. The Odyssey lineup delivers a next-level OLED experience with new AI capabilities[1] incorporated into the Odyssey OLED G8; the Smart Monitor lineup heightens joy with enhanced entertainment features along with a new Smart Monitor M8 powered by AI; and the ViewFinity lineup boosts connectivity to create a complete workstation.

“Samsung continues to strengthen our position as the number 1 OLED monitor brand globally with the launch of our 2024 Odyssey OLED G8 gaming monitor, equipped with groundbreaking AI with burn-in prevention features to enhance the gaming experience. With a diverse range of monitors catering to every use case possible in our 2024 monitor line-ups, including the AI-powered Smart Monitor M8 and updated ViewFinity monitors, we remain committed to delivering the ultimate visual and user experience for everyone, no matter how their use their monitors,” said Jacus Long, Head of Display Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

Odyssey OLED Series: Visual Excellence with New Burn-In Prevention Features

The 2024 Odyssey OLED models – Odyssey OLED G8 (G80SD model) and Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD model) – showcase Samsung’s next-generation OLED performance with new and enhanced features.

Samsung’s Odyssey OLED G8 (G80SD model) and Odyssey OLED G6 (G60SD model) gaming monitors now feature Samsung OLED Safeguard+ to prevent burn-in.

The Odyssey OLED G8 is the first flat 32″ Samsung OLED gaming monitor with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has a 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time for ultra smooth and responsive gameplay. The Odyssey OLED G6 is a 27″ QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution monitor, supporting a 16:9 aspect ratio. Its 360Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms GtG response time make it easy for gamers to keep up with fast-moving gameplay.

The new Odyssey OLED G8 is Samsung’s first OLED gaming monitor powered by AI. The NQ8 AI Gen3 processor, which is the same processor Samsung uses in its 2024 8K TV, upscales content to nearly 4K when using Samsung Gaming Hub [2] and the monitor’s native Smart TV apps for higher resolution in gaming and entertainment.[3]

Both new OLED models feature Samsung OLED Safeguard+, a new proprietary burn-in protection technology. This technology is the first in the world to prevent burn-in by applying a pulsating heat pipe to the monitor. Additionally, the Dynamic Cooling System evaporates and condenses a coolant to diffuse heat five times[4] more effectively than the older graphite sheet method, which prevents burn-in by reducing temperature at the core. The monitor also detects static images like logos and taskbars, automatically reducing their brightness to provide another means of burn-in prevention.[5]

The Odyssey OLED G8 and OLED G6 both deliver unmatched OLED picture quality with a brightness of 250 nits (Typ.), while FreeSync Premium Pro keeps the GPU and display panel synced up to eliminate choppiness, screen lag and screen tearing.

Samsung’s new OLED Glare Free technology[6] also preserves colour accuracy and reduces reflections while maintaining image sharpness to ensure an immersive viewing experience, even in daylight. The OLED-optimised, low-reflection coating overcomes the trade-off between gloss and reflection thanks to a new, specialised hard-coating layer and surface coating pattern.

Both monitors feature a super slim metal design that gives them a distinct identity, while Core Lighting+ enhances entertainment and gaming experiences with ambient lighting that synchronises with the screen. The ergonomic stand also makes long gaming sessions more comfortable with adjustable height, tilt and swivel support features.

The launch of the 2024 Odyssey OLED monitors further strengthens Samsung’s OLED monitor market leadership, following soon after Samsung achieved the top position in global sales in the OLED monitor market within only one year of launching its first OLED model.[7] This achievement underscores Samsung’s rapid ascent in the competitive OLED monitor market while reinforcing its commitment to diversifying its gaming monitor lineup with models that leverage the company’s proprietary OLED technology.

Smart Monitor M8: AI Processing for Crystal Clear Video and Audio

The updated Smart Monitor lineup brings together a complete multi-device experience into one hub for smarter entertainment and greater productivity. The upgraded 2024 models include the M8 (M80D model), M7 (M70D model), and the M5 (M50D model).

Samsung’s Smart Monitor M8 comes with an NQM AI processor that enables upscaling of content to nearly 4K, and background noise analysis to optimise user dialogue in the content through AI.

The upgraded 32″ 4K UHD Smart Monitor M8 introduces new features powered by AI with the NQM AI processor, taking entertainment experiences to the next level. AI upscaling brings lower resolution content up to nearly 4K[8], and Active Voice Amplifier Pro uses AI to analyse background noise in the user’s environment to optimise dialogue in the user’s content.[9] 360 Audio Mode[10] is available on the M8, which pairs with Galaxy Buds to create an immersive sound environment. The built-in SlimFit Camera also makes it easy to conduct video calls through mobile applications with Samsung Dex.[11]

New to the entire line of Smart Monitors is a Workout Tracker,[12] which pairs with a Galaxy Watch to enable real-time health data on the screen, even while streaming content. This makes it easier to track workout goals and can make working out more enjoyable.

These new features enhance the already impressive Smart Monitor functionality. Complementing the Smart Monitor are the Smart TV apps and Samsung TV Plus[13], which provide instant access to a wide range of streaming services and live content, without needing to boot up a PC or connect other devices.[14]
The M7 is available in 32″ and 43″ with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, a brightness of 300 nits (Typ.) and a GtG response time of 4ms. The M5 is available in 27″ and 32″, with FHD resolution (1920 x 1080), a brightness of 250 nits (Typ.) and a GtG response time of 4ms.
