Samsung launches 3 new flat-screen Odyssey Gaming monitors

Samsung unveiled its expanded Odyssey Gaming monitor lineup for 2021, which now features flat-screen monitors, including the Odyssey G7 28-inch. Odyssey G5 27-inch and Odyssey G3 in 24 and 27-inch variants. 

Having covered curved gaming monitors in 2020, the company is now offering a bunch of Odyssey monitors in a flat-screen design. Samsung says the new gaming monitors will be available globally from June 21; however, their website only features an ‘Inquiry to Buy’ button for all the new listings at the time of writing. The monitors will be available to purchase in USA in Q3 2021.

The two higher-end models, the G7 and G5, offer features such as multiple screen management, there’s support for Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture mode, alongwith Auto Source Switch.

“The expanded Odyssey gaming monitor lineup will enrich these experiences to more players, whether they are seeking tournament victories or just looking to explore the next great game,” said Hyesung Ha, Senior VP of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics.
