Samsung presents its first 43-inch gaming monitor with Mini-LED technology. The Odyssey Neo G7 integrates a 4K panel with 144 Hz refresh rate and is compatible with the FreeSync Premium Pro standard. It can double up as a TV with Smart Hub functionality and two 20 W speakers.

Mini-LED technology is seeing quite the push these days, as Apple is adopting it on most of its premium devices, while laptop OEMs are offering it as an alternative to OLEDs. There are the large size Mini-LED TVs, obviously, but, nowadays, gamers and content creators tend to look for monitors in the 40-inch range, which are still not readily available in Mini-LED form. Samsung is the only company to currently offer a 49-inch Mini-LED with the Odyssey Neo G9; however, this is an ultra-wide model that might not appeal to everyone. For the 16:9 fans, Samsung is now introducing a 43-inch Odyssey Neo G7 with the proprietary Quantum Mini-LED tech and 4K resolution.

One of the selling points for Mini-LED displays is the superior brightness over any other existing technology. The Odyssey Neo G7 comes with VESA Display HDR600 and HDR 10+ certificates in this sense, yet the press release mentions the typical brightness is 400 nit. Unlike the large size TV’s that come with glossy screen finish, this 43-incher the matte finish treatment that remains standard for gaming monitors.

Apart from the 4K resolution, the display features 144 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms response time with MPRT technology, plus it offers VRR through AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro. It is also compatible with Samsung’s latest Gaming Hub 2 game streaming platform and Smart Hub TV streaming. Since it can be used as a TV, it integrates 2x 20 W speakers. Port selection includes a DP 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 video inputs, two USB-A 3.0 ports, a GbE jack, as well as Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.

Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
