Samsung has announced its ultra-curved 49-inch Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is now open for pre-order.
At CES 2020, Samsung debuted the Odyssey G9 – a massive 49-inch gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio and QHD resolution (5120 x 1440). The ultra-curved QLED 1000R VA panel offers a 1ms response time, stunning 240Hz refresh rate, and supports FreeSync 2 and G-Sync variable refresh rates. This should make games look super smooth if your graphics card is good enough to deliver the frames.
The monitor comes with an HDR1000 rating, making it really nice and bright, and a 1000R curvature degree that “matches the curve of the human eye.”
Samsung's new G9 and G7 curved QLED gaming monitors are more immersive than ever with 1000R curvature and superior performance that gamers demand. Read more: https://t.co/gbJa6XXHmC

The Odyssey G9 49″ includes Infinity Core Lighting, allowing users to change the color on its external core lighting ring where the display meets its stand. The color range can be changed to match the lighting in any room, a tower build’s internal LED configuration, desktop accessories, and other factors.
The monitor features a futuristic design with thin bezels, clean white plastic chassis, and matching white arm.
You can now pre-order the Samsung Odyssey G9 49″ gaming monitor for $1,699 USD. The expected shipping date is July 13, 2020, so you won’t have to wait that long. In addition to the Odyssey G9 49″, you can also take a look at the cheaper Odyssey G7 which comes in two sizes (27″ and 32″) is also available to pre-order for $699 USD, and $799 USD, respectively.
