Samsung has launched a new range of monitors for 2021, with 12 displays in three product ranges, including the 27-inch S80UA with a USB-C connection capable of recharging your MacBook Pro.
Launched on Monday, the Samsung 2021 monitor range consists of a collection of displays ranging from 24 inches to 34 inches in size and equally high resolutions. The group is spread over three different series with the S8 aimed at creative professionals, while the S7 and S6 offer simple and perfect displays for most users.
The S8 series covers three monitors, with the S80A including 32-inch and 27-inch models, while the S80UA is a 27-inch screen. All are capable of UHD resolution, with color support for 1.07 billion colors, 99% sRGB color gamut, and HDR10 support.
Models offer an integrated USB hub with three USB 3.0 ports, although the S80A adds an additional USB 2.0 port. The S80UA also has an additional port, although it is USB-C and offers up to 90W of power delivery, as well as supporting 10Gbps data transfers.
The range includes a flat, borderless design, which can help create a near-perfect dual monitor setup. It is also supplied with a height adjustable stand with a variety of tilt, swivel and pivot controls.
The S7 series is represented by 32-inch and 27-inch displays under the model number S70A. Like the S8, the pair can produce a UHD image with 99% sRGB and HDR 10 support, as well as the borderless design.
The difference with the S7 is that it is the only one in the range that does not include any built-in USB hub functionality.
The S6 series encompasses three models with varied specifications. All again offer 1.07 billion colors and HDR10 support, and they also work with AMD FreeSync.
The S65UA is a 34-inch display with a 1000R curved design and UWQHD resolution, making it capable of displaying a 3440 by 1440 image.
Samsung’s S60UA trio of 32-, 27- and 24-inch monitors opts for a flat design, as well as a 2,560-by-1,440 QHD resolution.
Both the S65UA and S60UA model numbers include USB hub functionality with three USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port. They also offer a USB-C port with power delivery and support for LAN connectivity.
Lastly, the S60A in 32-, 27- and 24-inch variants has a QHD resolution and flat design, as well as an integrated three-port USB 3.0 hub. Unlike the other S6 models, it doesn’t have a USB-C port.
For this generation, Samsung has also ensured that all displays are certified by TUV Rheinland’s Intelligent Eye Care. The system allows displays to automatically adjust brightness and color temperature to respond to the local environment, both for user comfort and to reduce eye strain. An eye protection mode is also included to reduce blue light emissions and does not flicker.
Samsung has yet to announce pricing and availability for the new models.
