Samsung has announced the launch of their new 43-inch Odyssey Neo G7 (G70NC) gaming monitor.

The device features a Quantum Mini-LED display that can offer 4K resolution output, a gaming-friendly refresh rate of 144 Hz, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a 1ms response time. Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4, and two USB 3.0 ports. To round out its entertainment credentials, it has dual 20W speakers.

The 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution of the Odyssey Neo G7 comes with VESA Display HDR600 and HDR 10+ certification for advanced picture quality, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support (find out more about this here), while the Quantum Mini LEDs enable precise control of the densely packed LEDs. As a result, users can see richer blacks, more expansive colour expression and more detail, even in shadowy gaming environments.

Personalisation and customisation are the name of the game with the Odyssey Neo G7. The adjustable display Flex Move Screen allows users to adjust the screen size between 43 and 20 inches to match their preferred size based on the games they play and even change the screen position.

The Samsung Game Bar lets users quickly view and change important settings without ever needing to leave the game screen, putting the player in control without missing any of the action. Players can see and change FPS (Frames Per Second), aspect ratio, high dynamic range (HDR) and variable refresh rate (VRR) or adjust settings such as screen ratio, response time, and even the Game Picture mode.

Unfortunately, Singapore won’t be one of the countries that supports Samsung Gaming Hub. This is a streaming platform that allows instant access to games from partners such as Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce NOW, with no downloads or storage space requirements.


Not the only mini-LED game in town

But this isn’t the only mini-LED gaming display set to make its way onto our shores.

Last year Philips announced their new Evnia 34M2C7600MV series. This curved 34-inch mini-LED monitor has a QHD (3,440 x 1,440 pixels) resolution, VESA's DisplayHDR 1400 certification, 165Hz refresh rate, “ultra-low input lag”, and Adaptive-Sync compatibility.

Samsung recently announced a whopping big 57-inch mini-LED variant of the Odyssey Neo G9 (G95NC) during CES 2023. This Quantum mini-LED panel offers 7,680 x 2,160 pixels resolution in a 32:9 aspect ratio, VESA Display HR 1000 certification, a 240Hz refresh rate, and an updated DisplayPort 2.1 port that supports Display Stream Compression.

The Odyssey Neo G7 will be available globally from the first quarter of 2023, with launch schedules varying by region. We don’t have local pricing for the display yet, but the Korean press release quoted a price of 1.25 million won or about S$1,334.
