The Samsung Odyssey G8QNB is yet another incredible monitor slated for release and marks the world's thinnest display to date and another potential contender for the best OLED gaming monitors of the year.

There's a lot more to be excited about too, as Samsung continues to wow us with their upcoming monitors which, in case you missed it, include the massive Samsung Odyssey Ark and the 'small but mighty' Samsung G8 Neo.

Don't forget about their TVs too, which pack QD-OLED displays and eye-watering brightness (that's a good thing).


The Samsung Odyssey G8QNB is certainly set to be a big hitter when it comes to both gaming and productivity, but when will get a release date?

Here's everything we know so far.

Does The Samsung Odyssey G8QNB Have a Release Date?

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed just yet, leaving us to wonder as to when exactly we hear more.

While we think that it may head our way this year, based purely on the fact that a similar monitor, the Alienware AW3423DW, is slated for around March and recently got an official price tag.

Again, we can only predict at this point, and without any concrete release date, we'll have to sit tight to know when it will hit shelves.

We'll update you when we hear more, but for now, let's take a closer look at the upcoming monitor.

SNEAK PEAK: Shots of the upcoming monitor are hard to come by...

While the full picture is still a mystery, we do have some specs to work from.

The Samsung Odyssey G8QNB gaming monitor is a world's first, in the way that it packs Samsung's QD-OLED display.


This is the same kind of tech we're seeing across a new wave of QD-OLED TVs, like the Sony Bravia XR A95K, and boasts higher pixel brightness than ever before, plus the commonly associated deep blacks and incredible contrast.

On top of that, since it's a QD-OLED display you're now getting another world first - the world's slimmest monitor.

Coming in at just 5.9mm this monitor looks absolutely amazing and in true Odyssey style, looks to be another statement piece to anyone's setup.

The screen is sized to 34" with a 1800R curve. Not bad for those who want a touch of immersion when gaming, but also want something which can double up for productivity too.

On to the topic of gaming, you're getting a 175hz refresh rate with 0.1ms response time, which ticks the boxes for more reflex-based shooters, but for those wanting more, we'd say some of the best and upcoming 360hz monitors will have you covered.

Resolution is UWQHD, which is 3440 x 1440. Since PS5 doesn't support ultrawide officially, and the same goes for Xbox Series X, this monitor looks more for the PC gamers out there.


Samsung Odyssey G8QNB Price

At the time of writing, the price is still a mystery, however, we're expecting a hefty price tag. How much do we think? We think this may tip the scales at anywhere between $1800 - $2400 based on the fact that it packs a QD-OLED display and is a world-first too.

That being said the Alienware QD-OLED monitor is only coming in at $ we may be in for a surprise when we hear more.

It will be interesting to see what people gravitate towards with the Samsung Odyssey G8 Neo on the way too. Both look to pack a punch in their own ways, so we're looking forward to seeing how they compare closer to release.

We'll be back with you as soon as we hear more on the Samsung Odyssey G8QNB, so stay tuned.
