Back in June 2022, Samsung introduced the ViewFinity S8 monitor with an Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution to deliver the best experience for professionals in creative and visual industries. Then, the monitor was the talk of the town as it comes with fascinating features that enhance users’ experience.

However, as part of its continuous effort to strengthen its high-resolution monitor lineup, Samsung has today unveiled a new 5K monitor – the ViewFinity S9. The new monitor not only enriches users’ experience but also supports smartphone control to offer a new dawn.

According to the brand, the new 27-inch model of the ViewFinity S9 will be available globally from July 26, 2023, with launch schedules varying by region. Samsung’s ViewFinity S9 monitor was named Innovation Award honoree at the CES 2023 owing to its optimized tools and top-notch visual experiences for graphic design and photography.

Enhancing Users’ Experience with Smartphones Control

The ViewFinity S9 uses the Smart Calibration feature controlled with smartphones, which is the first in the industry, and users can conveniently customize the ViewFinity S9’s screen for precise settings without expensive, complex calibration equipment whenever they want.

Users of the SmartThings app have the option of calibrating in either basic mode, which allows for quick and simple changes to the white balance and gamma settings, or professional mode, which gives them full control over color temperature, brightness, color space, and gamma settings. Users only need to point their smartphone camera at the ViewFinity S9 screen to begin the calibration process. Once calibration is complete, users may read a report outlining the modifications made as well as the Delta E color accuracy.

Additionally, the ViewFinity S9 offers its customers TUV-certified Intelligent Eye Care functions to lessen eye fatigue even during prolonged use. Additionally, Samsung’s Matte Display reduces glare and light reflection on the monitor, reducing workplace distractions.

ViewFinity S9 Design and Specs

The new ViewFinity S9 provides amazing picture quality and text clarity on a 27-inch screen with 5K (5,120 x 2,880) resolution for a workspace that is over 50% larger than previous UHD monitors. Professionals can work on content with an extremely high resolution without having to zoom in, allowing them to view their projects in 5K while still having all of their editing tools readily available on the screen.

The ViewFinity S9 offers more vibrant and bright colors with clearer details thanks to its 99% DCI-P3 and 218 PPI (pixels per inch) resolution, making it ideal for individuals who value visual integrity. A normal brightness of 600 cd/m also makes it simple to work in almost any lighting situation.

Users of Macs and Windows PCs can connect to the ViewFinity S9 through Thunderbolt 4 and mini DisplayPort in addition to USB-C, providing flexible connectivity. Users may reliably transmit data at speeds of up to 40 Gbps and charge devices with up to 90W of power, thanks to Thunderbolt 4 compatibility.

A 4K SlimFit camera that connects through a Pogo pin without the use of cords or other accessories is incorporated into the monitor. The high resolution of the camera provides incredibly clear video calls on apps like Google Meet. When you swap positions, Auto Framing ensures that you remain visible and in the image. The camera tilts to match the angle of your monitor.

The ViewFinity S9’s slim metal design works for any space. With its ergonomic design, this device adapts to practically any position or posture to give comfort while enhancing productivity. The screen can tilt to accommodate different viewing angles, and a height-adjustable stand aligns with the user’s eye level. Users may view lengthy papers with minimal scrolling while using the pivot mode, which flips the screen 90 degrees. Users may keep desks clear of clutter and save space with VESA mount compatibility.

And finally, when it’s time to transition to entertainment after work, embedded Smart TV apps provide consumers with the entire TV experience. This monitor is well-rounded for work and pleasure thanks to its built-in speakers with Adaptive Sound+ that automatically adjust noise levels, instant access to popular streaming apps and programs without the need for a separate PC, and remote control.
