Samsung’s new business monitors will be available in Singapore from May onwards.

The five different resolution models spread across the S6 and S8 ranges, come with high-resolution displays, HDR10 support, and 178-degree viewing angles.

The Samsung S8 (S80UA) series only comes in a 27-inch screen. While the Samsung S6 (S65UA and S60UA) series includes 24-inch, 27-inch, 32-inch, and 34-inch, screen sizes. All of them feature a three-side borderless design.

The UHD S80UA has fast 10Gbps data transmission through its USB-C type port and up to 90W charging while also providing a variety of connectivity features including USB 3.0 and a USB hub to provide enhanced usability and versatility.

There are four monitors in the S6 series support not only QHD (2,560 x 1,440) and UWQHD resolution, but also PBP (Picture By Picture) and PIP (Picture In Picture) features, for efficient multitasking.

They support Daisy Chain technology, allowing extended multiple screens and screen reproduction, but also LAN cable (RJ45 compatibility), transforming the monitor into a Docking Station Hub. Built-in Wake On Lan (WOL) functionality allows the connected computer to be powered on remotely from another device.

The S65UA 34-inch monitor has a UWQHD (3,440 x 1,440) resolution. It has 21:9 aspect ratio, 1000R curvature, 4,000:1 typical contrast ratio, and HDR 10 support. It also comes with 300 nits peak brightness, 5ms response time, and 178-degree viewing angles.

Along with the S6 and S8, Samsung also launched an S7 series of monitors. It will not however be launching in Singapore with the other two. When we reached out to Samsung for a reason, they were unable to provide a response.
