Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 (G85SB) gaming monitor will debut at IFA 2022The Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 (G85SB) will debut at IFS 2022 in Berlin. This is the company's first OLED gaming monitor and will be available in an ultra-thin, 34-inch form factor, delivering brilliant brightness on an OLED panel partnered with Quantum Dot Technology and packed full of premium gaming features including an incredibly low 0.1ms response time and 175Hz refresh rate.

The new 34-inch, Odyssey OLED G8 is built to an ultra-slim thickness of 3.9mm at its thinnest part – the slimmest in its product category – and finished with a sleek, metal frame. The monitor requires no backlighting, while delivering true RGB and true black for maximum colour accuracy and brightness – all without a colour filter. The lighting is controlled in pixels which can be expressed in black with a near-infinite contrast ratio.

The ultra-wide, QHD resolution (3,440 x 1,440) gaming monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio with 100% colour volume and DCI-99.3% colour gamut for incredible visuals regardless of the game being played. This is enhanced by a million-to-one static contrast ratio to bring out the most subtle details for enhanced immersion and 1800R curvature for the perfect playing view.

The Odyssey OLED G8 is packed with gaming features to give any player a competitive edge. First, the OLED monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black Certified, ensuring content will appear vivid and life-like with accurate colour and contrast reproduction. In addition to the rapid response time and refresh rate of the Odyssey OLED G8, which gives gamers lightning-quick response capabilities and real-world accuracy in a range of gaming environments, the monitor is further enhanced by AMD FreeSync Premium for smooth gameplay.

The Odyssey OLED G8 also enables users to experience the best of gaming, entertainment and lifestyle features all in one place. The display operates as a complete entertainment hub with the ability to stream content through Samsung’s Smart Hub, giving access to the latest shows on Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube, and other leading OTT (over-the-top) service providers, even without a connection to a PC or mobile device. In addition, users can enjoy free live content without the need for downloads or sign-ups, made possible by Samsung TV Plus.

The integrated IoT hub allows the users to check all the IoT devices wirelessly connected to the monitor, while the SmartThings app allows users to monitor IoT devices throughout the house with ease. The app’s intuitive control panel can help monitor and adjust settings such as temperature and humidity.

Samsung Gaming Hub – an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform – is built into the Odyssey OLED G8. Players can discover and play games from partners such as Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, Utomik and Amazon Luna (US Only), with instant access to top streaming services. This capability is powered by Samsung’s advanced game streaming technology for smooth visuals and responsive gameplay, all with no downloads or storage space requirements.

The Odyssey OLED G8 also gives users comfort as they play their favorite games. A Height Adjustable Stand (HAS), as well as Tilt functionality provides ergonomic efficiency that means any gamer can find the perfect position regardless of what they are playing, whether it be a racing game or an open world fantasy adventure.

For further visual immersion, the display is equipped with the Odyssey portfolio’s well-known CoreSync & Core Lighting+ which has been upgraded for the Odyssey OLED G8. Found on the rear of the monitor, this advanced lighting technology matches the colours on-screen, bringing content to life with bright and vivid colours that create more memorable, immersive experiences. Moreover, the Odyssey OLED G8 is equipped with Micro HDMI (2.1), Mini DP (1.4) and USB-C ports for versatile connectivity, in addition to a 5W stereo speaker for crisp sound.

The Odyssey OLED G8 will be available globally from Q4 2022, with launch schedules varying by region.
