Samsung announces two new monitors, one a touchscreen model

Samsung has chosen to kick off 2013 with the launch of two new high-end monitors aimed at “professionals and consumers alike”, the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor and the Series 7 SC750.

The former (pictured above) is the Korean tech company’s first multi-touch display optimized for Microsoft’s touch-centric Windows 8 operating system and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The 24-inch 16:9 display supports up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch allowing users to drag, rotate or select objects on the screen, while its stand offers a 60-degree tilt. It also has built-in speakers.

“Additionally, the ultra-thin bezel along with wide viewing angles provides a truly immersive viewing experience,” Samsung said in a release about the new monitor.

The 27-inch 16:9 Series 7 SC750 model (above and below) doesn’t support touch input though does have one nifty trick up its sleeve – you can rotate it 90 degrees, allowing for landscape and portrait viewing. And by that we mean the entire display can be turned 90 degrees. Of course, how often you’d be inclined to actually swing it around is another question. Like the SC770, the SC750 also has a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Both monitors will be shown off by Samsung at CES next week before hitting the market some time in the next three months. The tech giant is yet to release details regarding price.

The Odyssey G9 gaming monitor is already among the largest and most immersive displays on the market, and now Samsung is updating the panel to make it twice as bright. The 49-inch display already boasts an elongated and massively wide QHD resolution called DQHD, which is the equivalent of having two QHD monitors side-by-side, and new for 2021 is support for a much brighter 2,000 nits of peak brightness on Samsung's Odyssey Neo G9 49-inch.

For gamers, the HDR2000-rated Odyssey Neo G9 means you'll see more contrast. This means you'll see more details in the shadows and highlights, which could allow you to identify things in dark shadows or bright areas of a scene in your game, like enemies hiding in the background.
