Samsung's 240Hz Odyssey G7 QLED monitors are due to release next month

Next month, Samsung plans to release a dual of Odyssey G7 series monitors onto the market, offering crisp 1440p resolutions, lighting fast 240Hz refresh rates, and both FreeSync Premium Pro (formerly known as FreeSync 2) support and validated G-Sync Compatability. 

Using DisplayPort 1.4, this screen can support HDR600 complaint HDR at 1440p 240Hz using this screen's QLED curved display. This screen offers users a 1000R curvature, making it ideal for users who are 1 meter (1000mm) away from the screen. This is ideal for users of deep desks, and PC gamers who demand high-quality visuals and super-fast response times. 

Samsung's Odyssey G7 series will be available with 32-inch and 27-inch models, both of which boast 1ms (GTG) response times, a colour changing rear lighting system and VESA compatible monitor stands which support tilt, swivel, and height adjustment options.

Both of these screens are very similar to Samsung's high-end Odyssey G9 monitor, which delivers users a huge 49-inch 5120x1440 (dual-wide 1440p) screen with a DisplayHDR 1000 rating and support for refresh rates up to 240Hz. This screen also offers users a response time of 1ms, and supports AMD's FreeSync 2 technology while also being G-Sync Compatible. 

Samsung has confined that its new Odyssey G7 series monitors are due to release globally in July, with all models offering users similarly spec-d QLED screens with HDR compatibility and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support. 

Both of Samsung's new Odyssey G7 series monitors feature dual DisplayPort 1.4 inputs as well as an HDMI 2.0 input. Both screen feature low input latency modes, as well as an integrated USB 3.0 splitter and an integrated headphone jack.  

More details about these screens are due to be released soon. At this time the pricing of these screens is unknown, though they are unlikely to be cheap.

Upgraded CHG70. I own a C27HG70 and is a good monitor, great colors, ok build quality (some issues), impressive HDR for the price, though VA typical smearing, contrast lacks behind OLED, but okay.Quote

Shame. You'll need to use DSC on DP1.4 to get the full refresh rate at 4:4:4 and HDMI 2.0 isn't near enough bandwidth to drive this at 4:4:4.Quote

Every GPU capable of driving that also has DSC.Quote

I don't know will they get enough refresh rate to hit 240Hz. It needs to be <4ms.Quote

Doesn't mean the monitor supports it. It may be apart of the DP protocol buts it's not a required feature which means the scalar may not support it to keep costs down. Which means they could be defaulting to 4:2:2.

I would have liked DP2.0 but we won't be seeing anything with that until at earliest Q1 2021 but more likely after that.
Alternatively they could have gone for HDMI 2.1 but that would add costs too for something that's more DP focused.Quote
