Samsung Electronics introduced the Odyssey Neo G7, the company’s first non-curved model with a miniLED backlight. It is a 4K display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a refresh rate of 144Hz.
The G70NC has Quantum Matrix technology, which is Samsung’s naming for the use of miniature LED backlighting. Company reports That this allows for more precise management of closely packed LEDs, but it does not report on the number of individually dimmable zones in the display.
The monitor has a VA panel which gives a consistent contrast ratio of 4250:1. VA panels usually have higher nodes than IPS panels and better black values, although with VA panels the question often arises if the response times are a bit too late in relative terms. Samsung reports a value of 1ms, but that is the MPRT value and not the gray-to-gray response time.
The screen is VESA HDR600 certified, which means it has a peak brightness of 600 cd/m2. This specific naming does not impose too many additional requirements on the screen, such as the minimum number of dimmable regions. Normal brightness is 400 cd/m² max. There’s also support for HDR10+ and gamers can use both DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 connections. There is also built-in support for WiFi and Bluetooth.
Samsung Smart Hub is integrated into the G70NC, which provides users with a smart TV experience. This makes it possible to launch applications such as Netflix, YouTube, and Prime Video without having to start the connected computer. There is also the Samsung Gaming Hub, which is a streaming platform for accessing games from Xbox and Nvidia’s GeForce Now, but this hub has not yet been released in Benelux.
Samsung has not yet announced the suggested retail price. The Odyssey Neo G7 will be available worldwide this quarter.
