A new year means new devices. Barely a day into 2023, Samsung is already coming out swinging with a slew of new monitors, ushering in the next generation of display technology. Ahead of CES 2023, the South Korean brand has unveiled the Odyssey Neo G9 and the Odyssey OLED G9.
Odyssey Neo G9
Inarguably the highlight between the two new monitors, the Odyssey Neo G9 delivers, for the first time ever, dual ultra-high definition resolution in a single monitor. The monitor puts out 7680 x 2160 resolution and a 32:9 aspect ratio, a behemoth for display technology.
The large 100R curved 57-inch screen boasts quantum mini LED technology to bring modern games to life. Further, the matte texture reduces light reflection on the screen, keeping gaming sessions uninterrupted by errant light. It also puts out images in a buttery-smooth 240Hz refresh rate.
Finally, the monitor comes with the world’s first support for DisplayPort 2.1. The new standard transfers data around twice as fast as the old DisplayPort 1.4 standard.
Odyssey OLED G9
Though smaller than its larger cousin, the Odyssey OLED G9 is just as capable of putting out amazing images. Featuring a 49-inch 1800R curved display, the monitor uses dual quad-HD technology to power images at a 32:9 ratio.
Because the monitor’s quantum dot technology lights each pixel individually, the Odyssey OLED G9 delivers true RGB and true black accurately. For smoother displays, the monitor boasts 0.1ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate.
Finally, the monitor comes with its own suite of software including Netflix, YouTube, and Prime Video. It also has Samsung Gaming Hub which seamlessly facilitates cloud gaming software. Users won’t need a PC or a console to enjoy the monitor’s display.
ViewFinity S9 and Smart Monitor M8
Appealing beyond the gaming market, the ViewFinity S9 is a 5K 27-inch screen designed for creative professionals. The monitor puts outs images in 5120 x 2880 resolution with a wide color gamut of 99 percent DCI-P3. Users can also manually fine-tune color precision and brightness with their smartphones through the Samsung Smart Calibration app.
The monitor itself has USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 ports to transfer data between devices. It also comes with a 4K SlimFit camera to ease video conferencing.
Finally, the Smart Monitor M8 expands its lineup to include a 27-inch model. Like the original 32-inch model, the 27-inch variant launches with 4K resolution. On its own, the monitor can control hundreds of smart home devices. It also has a suite of its own apps to maximize usage even without a PC.
It comes in Daylight Blue, Spring Green, Sunset Pink, and Warm White.
HP reveals new hybrid, gaming lineup at CES 2023
New Dragonfly and Elite series too
Both these gaming powerhouses are powered by up to 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K series processors. They also have NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics for 4K visuals.

HP has also introduced cloud gaming through the OMEN Gaming Hub. It offers gamers access to over 1,450 titles.
HP E-series G5 monitors: More immersive experience
Meanwhile, the visual experience is about to be taken to new heights further, with HP’s new E-series G5 monitors which range from the 21.5 to 44.5-inch sizes and are all capable of displaying 4K seamlessly.
The HP E45c G5, in particular, is the world’s first QHD dual curved monitor which showcases a super ultrawide Virtual Dual Display feature.
Essentially, there is just one extra-long monitor instead of two monitors which need to be combined side-by-side to create the ultimate gaming setup.
The M24h and M27h FHD monitors also provide upgraded experiences while coming with improved ergonomics to tailor fit users’ postures and viewing angles.
Poly Voyager Free 60 series
When it comes to accessories, headlining the list is the Poly Voyager Free 60 series wireless earbuds.
This wearable comes with 10mm drivers for hi-fi sound and adaptive hybrid ANC. It has a smart charge case with 3.5mm OLED display, a three-mic array, and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
It supports up to 24 hours of total playtime on a full charge. Everything is made a breeze too through the Poly Lens mobile app for customizing settings.
For other accessories, there’s the HP 620/625 FHD webcam for Zoom-ready looks on a 1080p camera. It has built-in dual noise-reduction microphones and video features like auto-focus and AI face framing.
The HP 710 rechargeable silent mouse also allows users to work seamlessly. Its compact design features six programmable buttons for 20 custom shortcuts.
Hybrid-fit laptops: Dragonfly, Elite series
Lastly, HP has unveiled the new Dragonfly G4, EliteBook 1040 G10, and Elite x360 1040 G10. These productivity laptops shall benefit users who work in remote setups, physical office spaces, or a combination of both.
All powered by the latest gen processors in the market, here are some of the distinct new features:
- Multi-Camera Experience: The laptops support dual video streams and camera switching. With it, users can easily show both themselves and an object or keyboard at the same time, picture-in-picture or side-by-side.
- Auto Camera Select: Since there are two cameras on each device, this feature uses intelligent face tracking to recognize which camera a user is facing for uninterrupted virtual eye contact.
- HP Be Right Back: This will enable users to change their video feed to a still feature when taking a break, without having to steal the attention from meetings
- Intelligent Hibernate, Smart Sense: As users begin to work on their PCs regularly, these study their patterns to optimize performance and even predict what’s next.
