CES 2022 is already off to an impressive start. That’s thanks in part to Samsung debuting the premium Odyssey Neo G8 curved monitor, which offers both a 4K resolution and 240Hz refresh rate. What’s most exciting about it, however, is the 32-inch monitor’s 1000R curve, which is the same aggressive curvature found on the gigantic (and expensive) 49-inch Odyssey Neo G9.
According to Samsung, the Neo G8 is the “world’s first monitor to feature a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) 1000R curved screen with a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time.” Its overall design looks remarkably similar to that of the Neo G9, with a bright white exterior, dynamic lights on the back and a 2,000 nit peak brightness for an ultra-vivid image.
Pricing for the upcoming Odyssey Neo G8 is yet to be announced, but it’ll no doubt be one of the most expensive on the market. Samsung’s Odyssey Neo G9 49-inch monitor currently retails for $2,500 – and while it’s significantly larger than the new monitor, it lacks full 4K support.
Here’s a quick look at the Odyssey Neo G8’s spec sheet:

Samsung Revealed Two Other Monitors Alongside the Odyssey Neo G8
While the ultra-premium Odyssey Neo G8 was the star of Samsung’s CES 2022 monitor lineup, two other products were also introduced to the world. One of them was the slim Smart Monitor M8, which is nearly 75% thinner than the outgoing model. Its 32-inch display seems to be targeting the work-from-home crowd, with a minimalistic design that should fit on most workspaces and a movable magnetic camera for easy video calls.

The final reveal from Samsung was the High Resolution Monitor S8, which will be sold in 27-inch and 32-inch varieties. This professional display is intended for creators who need “the highest levels of accuracy and range” for their creative work.
Pricing for the three upcoming products is yet to be announced, although we expect to hear more about Samsung’s monitor lineup as CES 2022 continues.

Alienware is known for its high-end (and expensive) gaming gear, but one of its best monitors is currently available on Amazon with a discount of nearly $100.
