Both models share several similarities, but the Neo G9 looks like a big improvement over its predecessor. The Odyssey Neo G9 is Samsung’s first Mini-LED gaming monitor, and it offers a higher quality overall output than the G9. The Quantum Mini-LED (QLED+) display in the 49-inch Neo G9 is an improvement of the QLED display retained in the Odyssey G9.
The Quantum Mini-LED curved screen can offer up to 5K resolution, with an ultra-wide 32:9 Aspect Ratio. Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 uses a VA panel and 2048 local dimming zones for enhanced picture clarity. The new gaming monitor has the VDE (Germany) certification for peak brightness, and it supports HDR10 and HDR10+ video content.
The gaming monitor also supports a 240Hz refresh rate, auto low-latency mode, and Adaptive Sync. It has two HDMI 2.1 ports which offer higher-quality input than its predecessor.
There are also two USB 3.0 ports and 1 DisplayPort 1.4. The monitor supports 4K 120Hz gaming, with several gaming-specific features also available. These include Black Equalizer, Super Arena Gaming UX, low input lag mode, Refresh Rate Optimizer, and Screen Size Optimizer. The Odyssey Neo G9 can automatically switch to gaming mode with low latency immediately after a game console is connected to it.
The new Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor has a 100×100 VESA mount, and the stand supports swivel and tilts adjustment to suit the gamer’s preferences.
The Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor will be available for pre-order from July 29. Sales begin globally on August 9. The Samsung Neo G9 will sell at KRW 2,400,000 ($2,100) in Korea, while the US and other markets could get the gaming monitor for about $2,500.
