Samsung, which is among the world’s largest panel makers, has recently focused on TVs and monitors for players. In fact, at the event organized earlier this month, Odyssey introduced 3 new models called Neo G8, Neo G7 and Neo G4. Now, Samsung is preparing to release the full 55-inch Odyssey Ark monitor that it introduced at the last CES trade show.
The 55-inch Samsung Odyssey Ark goes on sale in August!
Odyssey Ark, which will be offered for sale by Samsung in August, is not looking for the first 3 models of the series with its features. The 1440 x 5150 (can be 4K) resolution monitor uses a panel that offers a 240 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time. Although it is a common 16:9 aspect ratio, its 55-inch size is actually enough on its own instead of 2-3 different monitors.
With the stand it measures 1147.6 x 537.2 x 416.4 mm and weighs 16.7 kg, while on its own it measures 1147.6 x 363.5 x 291.0 mm and weighs 14.1 kg. In addition, the curvature of the screen is 1000R. The device with HDR support can reach the highest brightness of 600 nits. When we look at the panel type, we see that it is specified as QLED Dual QHD IPS. On the power consumption side, it is said to be able to reach up to 140W at its highest.
The leaks that surfaced in the last period said that the Ark will come with 2K support and not 4K like the Neo G8 model. Many people insist that a monitor as large as 55 inches and for use at a close distance must be 4K. However, noting that there is no certainty about that yet, let’s say that it is expected to come with 4K.
