A brand-new OLED G8 is on the way and this time it looks a little different from what you may remember, so let’s waste no time and take a look at the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 32″ specs. There’s one clue already, the new OLED G8 is in fact a 32″ screen, as opposed to the 34″ ultrawide we saw release back in 2022. This time it may join the ranks as one of the best 4K gaming monitors out there once the new OLED G8 release date rolls around.

Picking out a new OLED gaming monitor may be on your mind in 2024. This panel technology is much more available than ever and there’s lots of choice on the market. For a 16:9 aspect ratio, we’ve been fairly restricted to super large monitors like the BenQ MOBIUZ EX480UZ or ASUS PG42UQ. Now Samsung are adding to the pot with a number of fresh OLED releases. And while this 2024 OLED G8 may share the same name as its predecessor, many key specs aren’t the same at all.

2024’s edition of the OLED G8 is somewhat of a surprise. Samsung have ditched the 34″ ultrawide design and have gone for a flat screen with 16:9 aspect ratio. If you’re as intrigued as we were, then check out the revealed specs below – or head on over to the official Samsung site for a rundown on these new OLEDs.

Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 features revealed

There’s plenty to look forward to if you’re interested in this 4K gaming monitor, and the features add to that. Unlike what we see in the OLED G6 specs, the OLED G8 benefits from Samsung’s range of smart features – starting with the Samsung Smart TV platform and Samsung Game Hub. Considering the large 32″ size and stunning OLED visuals, having these TV-like features make sense if you’re going to use this as a multimedia display.

In addition to that, the G8 gets the new Multi Control feature. This allows you to use multiple devices on the display at once and you can transfer images and/or text to other Samsung devices, including your phone or tablet with use of your mouse and keyboard. Samsung bill it is a all-in-one entertainment hub. You also get access to the Samsung SmartThings Hub for a truly smart home.
