ViewFinity S9

Michael Potuck:

Samsung announced its new lineup of monitors at CES this morning. Two of the most exciting models for Mac users include the company’s first 5K monitor, the ViewFinity S9 with a slick design not unlike Apple’s Studio Display but with even more features and a new 27-inch version of the popular Smart Monitor M8.


Pricing and launch details haven’t been shared yet.

It’s 27 inches, like the Studio Display.

Eric Slivka:

The ViewFinity S9 features a matte finish to minimize glare, is equipped with USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, and includes a 4K SlimFit camera.


Update (2023-01-12): Dan Seifert:

A weird thing has happened at CES this year: display manufacturers not named Apple have announced true 5K and 6K monitors designed for creative work and productivity. […] It’s hard to overstate how rare this actually is.

It’s a little unclear in the press release, but it seems like these monitors may run Tizen:

“Users can connect cameras and other devices to the monitor through USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 connections to easily transfer gigantic files of high-resolution video or other large data sets from storage devices to their PC. The ViewFinity S9 Series comes with a 4K SlimFit camera and supports native video conferencing through apps such as Google Meet that are included in the Samsung Smart Hub.”

I really hope that internet-connected smart monitors aren’t a new trend.

Prepare for disappointment Ghost Quartz. ;(
