The South Korean giant is not only bringing some laptops for its wide customers but also expanding its huge monitor market by announcing the premium end curved gaming monitors. At the CES 2020, Samsung has announced G9 and G7 curved QLED gaming monitors with 1000R curvature.
This is Samsung’s new line-up of groundbreaking curved Odyssey gaming monitors which Samsung says has been completely reimagined with gamers in mind. The 1000R curve design is made to fit within the full span of human vision.
The Odyssey gaming monitor lineup consists of the G9 model with an industry-leading 49-inch display and the G7 model available in both 32-inch and 27-inch. In spite of featuring an extremely deep curvature, these monitors are equipped with the stunning QLED panels.

It also features a rapid, 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, 32:9 aspect ratio, a deep and immersive 1000R curvature, and a peak brightness of 1000 cd/m2.
