Samsung has introduced the ViewFinity S9 monitor, a 27-inch display designed for creative professionals like graphic designers and photographers. The ViewFinity S9 monitor has a high resolution of 5,120 x 2,880 and a color gamut of 99% DCI-P3, which means it can show a wide range of colors. It also has a very low delta E score, which is a way to measure how accurately colors are shown on the monitor. If the score is 2 or less, it means that the monitor shows colors very well.
The Color Calibration Engine is a particular part of the ViewFinity S9. It makes sure that the colors and brightness on the screen are correct. With a Samsung Smart Calibration app, you can change your phone’s white balance, Gamma, and RGB color balance. The matte display also cuts down on glare and reflection, which makes it easier to stay on task.
The Samsung ViewFinity S9 has many different ports on the back for connecting to other devices, including DisplayPort, HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and USB-C. It also has a Power Delivery feature to charge your laptop through the monitor. This is powerful enough to charge a 70W 14″ MacBook Pro and almost powerful enough to charge a 100W 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The ViewFinity S9 may have a few advantages over Apple’s Studio Display. It supports DHDR 600, which allows the IPS panel’s backlight to be dimmed, and the matte screen is free of charge.
It’s unclear when the Samsung ViewFinity S9 will be available or how much it will cost. It seems similar to the Apple Studio Display, which starts at $1,599. Samsung may try to compete with Studio Display by offering a lower price.
