Earlier this year, Samsung announced a plethora of new gaming and productivity monitors at CES 2020. The center of attraction was none other than the company’s 49-inch Odyssey G9 gaming monitor. The key highlight of this new Odyssey lineup is the 1000R curvature that offers a much more immersive gaming experience. Well, we now have the pricing information for the popular Odyssey G9 gaming monitor but for the South Korean market.
Samsung Odyssey G9 Gaming Monitor: Price in South Korea
As mentioned earlier, the South Korean giant has only revealed the pricing information for the South Korean market i.e. its homeland. The 1000R curved gaming monitor will set you back around KRW 1,960,000 (i.e. roughly $1,610). This roughly falls in line with US pricing of the product which, by the way, is priced at $1,699.
The Odyssey G9 is currently in the pre-order phase and the company is offering a free JBL’s Quantum Duo stereo speakers as well. The G9 is not the only gaming monitor under the Odyssey lineup. We also have the cheaper offering namely Odyssey G7 that features a 27-inch display panel with the same 1000R curvature.
Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is equipped with a massive 49-inch ultrawide curved screen. We’re looking at an ultrawide aspect ratio of 32:9. The display comes with a dual-QHD resolution, that is, 5120 x 1440 pixels. In terms of brightness, the display can lit up to a massive 1,000 nits. Since the product is designed for gaming, you will see a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and the support for AMD FreeSync 2 and Nvidia G-Sync. Both these two technologies help in a tear-free gaming experience.
In terms of design, the Odyssey G9 is one of the best-looking gaming monitors out there in the market. It comes with Infinity core lighting design with glossy white delivering quite a futuristic look. If you’re unaware, the core lights up when you turn on the display. It looks somewhat similar to Iron Man’s core reactor. Unlike the traditional curved display, the 1000R curvature really makes a solid difference in terms of experience.
Since we’re looking at a solid ultrawide display panel, you can also double this as a productivity monitor. The stand offers three types of adjustment namely tilt, swivel, and height. For connectivity and ports, the monitor comes with a headphone jack, HDMI, two DP ports, and two USB 3.0 ports.
