At the Samsung x YouTube Gaming Afterparty, well-known game creators and industry insiders had a chance to preview the best gaming devices on the market. With the new Odyssey OLED series, attendees were the first to play new titles, such as “Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2” from Focus, before their release.



“You need a high refresh rate for games as fast as the new Warhammer one that we get to play here,” said a gamer at the Afterparty. “The Odyssey OLED G6’s 360Hz refresh rate makes the action super smooth, so you can easily aim and see enemy movement without any annoying blur.”

This year’s Odyssey OLED series includes the 32-inch Odyssey OLED G8 in 4K UHD with a 240Hz refresh rate and the 27-inch OLED G6 in QHD with a 360Hz refresh rate. Both deliver outstanding OLED picture quality with a near-instant 0.03-millisecond gray-to-gray response time for ultra-smooth, responsive gameplay.



The Odyssey series’ latest features are especially geared toward creating an optimal gaming environment. The new OLED Glare Free technology minimizes light reflection and delivers vivid, clear colors so gamers can enjoy crisp, clean picture quality. In addition, both OLED models feature Samsung OLED Safeguard+ — a proprietary burn-in protection technology that combines a pulsating heat pipe with a dynamic cooling system to help prevent burn-in by reducing temperatures at the core.

YouTuber SugarStar was one of the gaming personalities who experienced the new monitors. “Graphics look fantastic on these monitors. The colors seem so vibrant and true to life, even without putting the brightness all the way up like you do on other monitors. All of the games here look great,” she said. “I also use an Odyssey monitor at home, and I love that I don’t need a PC connected to play. It made it easy to keep playing (console) games with Samsung Gaming Hub before my PC was built.”

The new Odyssey OLED gaming monitors showcased at Summer Game Fest include HDR10+ GAMING capabilities on select games like “Cyberpunk 2077” and “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Players will automatically experience deeper color, contrast and brightness — without lengthy, manual calibration.



“If it ain’t like this, I don’t want it,” said YouTuber HipHopGamer, a popular gaming personality. “When you can move your mouse this fast, without blurring or stuttering, that’s what refresh rate is all about. It’s happening here on the Odyssey OLED G8, with one of the biggest games ever made, ‘Red Dead Redemption 2.’ There’s no stutter. There’s no blur.”1



Unlocking a premium visual experience, HDR10+ GAMING automatically adjusts the high-dynamic range (HDR) and the default HDR brightness of any game based on the specific capabilities of the monitor. By precisely calibrating color, contrast and brightness to each individual display, details are accurate even in dark shadows and bright highlights for more engaging gameplay.



Game developer Przemyslaw Czatrowski of CD Projekt Red, the company that brought the world “Cyberpunk 2077,” had only good things to say about HDR10+ Gaming. “Now, ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ with HDR looks just how I imagined it to be, ramping up the immersion,” he said.

Gaming continues to grow in new and exciting ways, and Summer Game Fest proved to be one of the industry’s standout events. This year, Samsung again proved its commitment to new and seasoned gamers through its future-defining monitors and innovative features.



Samsung’s participation in Summer Game Fest highlights its longstanding partnership with Hollywood Park, where Samsung technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the 300-acre mixed-use campus. During the event, attendees witnessed how a suite of Samsung digital signage at YouTube Theater creates the ultimate live experience. Game reveals and showcases were visible on two 26-by-14-foot Samsung LED Smart Signage displays installed on both sides of the 6,100-square-foot stage, fully immersing attendees in gameplay previews and building excitement for upcoming releases.

Samsung Samsung Galaxy with 2 sims and SD Card?

Is there a Samsung Galaxy with 2 sims and SD Card that's not too expensive?

I was really keen on the A25, then a eventually realised it has either 2 sims OR 1 sim and an SD card, but not all three options.
I have trouble following the specs clearly, as some say 'Nano', some say '2 sims one tray' but I can't work out in clear English what I want.

I'm in Thailand and the price of the A25 is about 6,500 Baht (about US$200 I think)
Is there a new-ish model with 2 sims & an SD card?

Accessing "Use password after restart"

On my Z Fold 4, when I initially start the phone, I could touch the power button (sensing my fingerprint) to get to where I could input my password and start the phone. On my Z Fold 5, even though it is set up similarly, it will not do this (I do have fingerprints set up). I have to swipe the screen to be able to get to input my password. Has the feature as described on the 4 been eliminated in the 5?

[Editorial] Human-Centric, Hybrid AI Opens Up New Possibilities

Galaxy-AI_Editorial_main1.jpg




We are at the beginning of the most exciting and probably one of the most historic moments in technology. The era of mobile AI is here — which for Samsung opened up by the introduction of Galaxy AI features on the Galaxy S24 series, our first AI phone.





Revolutionizing Mobile Experiences With a Hybrid AI Approach


To bring the real-life benefits of generative AI technology to the Galaxy S24 series, we took a hybrid approach to our AI integration. AI offers so many possibilities, and we believe mobile devices are the primary access point for unlocking its potential as users around the globe continue to rely on their phones for most of their day-to-day needs.



The essential role that mobile devices play in everyday life means they are very personal items that people use during many critical and memorable moments. We understand these behaviors and believe smartphones should work harder so that users can truly make the most of important moments in a simpler, more intuitive and more epic way. We also recognize the importance of privacy which is why we give users full control over what they share and what they keep private.



We believe our hybrid approach is the most practical and reliable solution to meet all these needs and puts Samsung ahead of the curve. We are providing users with a balance between the instant responsiveness and extra privacy assurance of on-device AI and the versatility of cloud-based AI through open collaborations with industry-leading partners in offering a variety of functions they need for daily life.





Expanding Possibilities With On-Device AI


We made the Live Translate feature on-device AI based because voice calls are the most basic feature of a smartphone, yet also an intimate and private means of communication. Samsung has committed to empowering users to communicate without language barriers, while at the same time ensuring every communication is safe and private.



To make this feature a reality, our R&D team worked day and night as part of a collaborative process that truly brought out the best in our teams. From determining the right size of AI language models to training and testing in real-life scenarios, our R&D organizations within the MX business challenged themselves and pushed beyond the limits of what we thought was possible to get this feature running entirely on-device.



Samsung’s global R&D networks around the world, which are in charge of growing the best talents and developing core technologies in each region, have also played a pivotal role. Samsung Research Centers around the globe, including Poland, China, India and Vietnam, have dedicated themselves to developing and expanding the languages supported by Galaxy AI. Languages are very cultural, contemporary and localized, so to help people break down language barriers and communicate more naturally, the role of our local R&D offices is even more crucial in opening up new possibilities for users in more regions than ever before.



All these efforts have enabled Samsung to offer something completely new which I’m excited to share. Soon, Samsung is extending the power of Galaxy AI beyond Samsung’s own native calling app by expanding Live Translate to other third-party message apps to support voice calls. So you can stay in contact with friends or colleagues, communicating on your favorite apps in multiple languages.



And since this feature has been integrated into our on-device AI language translation model, users will be able to experience barrier-free communication without worrying about privacy issues like personal data being shared outside their phone when using Live Translate.



I expect that more and more mobile AI features will be incorporated inside mobile devices as the intelligent computing power of the latest chips — particularly NPUs — advances at a blazing fast speed, along with other technologies. This will enable more people to embrace AI and make every day more convenient while offering greater peace of mind.





Growing Galaxy AI for Tomorrow’s Needs, Today


This exciting news is all part of the extension of our commitment to Galaxy AI and entering the next phase of the mobile AI era. The introduction of Galaxy AI on the Galaxy S24 series was only the start. To deliver a completely new and unique AI experience, we will further optimize the Galaxy AI experience for the upcoming foldable devices. Our foldables are the most versatile and flexible form factor in Samsung Galaxy and when combined with Galaxy AI, these two complementary technologies will together unlock all new possibilities.



Samsung is also committed to expanding Galaxy AI experiences across the broader Galaxy ecosystem in a way that only Samsung can. As the mobile AI era moves forward at a rapid pace, Samsung is accelerating mobile AI innovations to meet the needs of not only today, but tomorrow.​

Under a mission to create a Better Life for All, LG is committed to creating a sustainable future for the planet. As part of its commitment to raising awareness about crucial social and environmental issues, LG has been running the LG Hope Screen program in bustling pedestrian areas of two renowned cities – New York’s Times Square and London’s Piccadilly Circus. These eye-catching LG billboards have captured the attention of passersby, showcasing public service videos produced by international organizations and non-governmental organizations.​

Annotation-2024-06-05-115005-600x600.jpg


Through the Hope Screen program, LG is joining hands with the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) in the annual celebration of World Environment Day on June 5. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is hosting this year’s event, focusing on the critical topics of land restoration, desertification and drought resilience, emphasizing the message of “Our Land. Our Future.”​

According to the United Nations, approximately 2 billion hectares of land are degraded worldwide, posing a significant impact on around 3.2 billion people globally. This degradation accounts for one-fifth of the Earth’s land area and affects 40 percent of the world’s population, disproportionately impacting those who lack the necessary resources and means to cope with the consequences.​

hopescreen2-600x397.jpg


This year’s World Environment Day provides a valuable platform to raise public awareness about this pressing issue and inspire action to safeguard the planet. From May 31 to mid-June, LG Hope Screens will broadcast UNEP-created videos that shed light on the detrimental consequences of rapid industrialization, contributing to the devastating effects of climate change. However, these videos also showcase inspiring reforestation initiatives from various parts of the world, urging viewers to actively participate in the restoration of our planet’s ecosystems.​

Annotation-2024-06-05-114525-600x399.png


LG Hope Screens have emerged as a powerful platform for initiating meaningful conversations and raising awareness about crucial social and economic issues. In April, on the occasion of Earth Day 2024, LG launched a captivating digital out-of-home campaign through its Times Square billboard, featuring mesmerizing anamorphic content. The campaign aimed to draw attention to the urgent need for protection of some of the world’s most vulnerable endangered and recovered species. Throughout the year, this ongoing campaign will continue to spotlight various species, starting with the snow leopard and subsequently featuring the bald eagle, Galapagos sea lion and reindeer later in the year.​

Annotation-2024-06-05-114553-600x415.png


Last October, to commemorate World Food Day, LG Hope Screens played a significant role in commemorating World Food Day. During this event, campaign videos produced by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization were broadcasted, emphasizing the crucial importance of water as a fundamental element for both sustenance and life itself. These videos aimed to raise awareness about the significance of water conservation in order to foster a more sustainable future.

LG will continue to run the Hope Screen program to foster initiatives for the betterment of the planet and the people living on it. Stay tuned to the LG Newsroom to learn more about LG’s efforts to create a Better Life for All.​

Upon first glance in the morning, the Odyssey OLED G8 is quite the spectacle. Its super slim metal design measuring draws immediate attention as it measures 3.9mm at its thinnest point. Even though it is a 32-inch monitor, it does not take up much space thanks to its slim design, so it can be conveniently placed anywhere. The unique silver color harmonizes with peripherals like controllers, PCs and consoles, plus mice and keyboards.

FPS games are the answer to getting your hands ready for a day of gaming and entertainment. The basic formula for FPS games is to catch your opponent off guard, and overwhelm them before they even realize what is happening. Lightning quick response speed and refresh rate are vitally important in a monitor when playing FPS games. The Odyssey OLED G8 has a 4K UHD resolution that gives you the advantage when searching for enemies. S enjoys the edge that comes from a 240Hz refresh rate and a 0.03ms(GtG) response speed.

▲ Enjoy ‘The FINALS’ with the Odyssey OLED G8 featuring 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms response time(GtG), while offering users an edge in fast-action gaming.




Core Lighting+ on the back of the monitor is also something you don’t want to miss out on. It provides a more immersive ambiance to the gaming environment. With the CoreSync function, the monitor’s rear lights change color, mimicking the games scenes’ colors. This creates a more dramatic gaming environment and extends the mood and colors of your game to the outside world.

The impressive visual value of the Odyssey OLED G8 can be witnessed in RPG games with dark backgrounds and contrasts. The Odyssey OLED G8 helps you fully immerse yourself in the gaming world, as it displays brilliant graphics, superior brightness of 250 nits(typ) and a wide DCI-P3 99% color gamut. Every scene comes alive in vivid detail with the consistently brilliant imagery.



Especially in Game mode, the Dynamic Black Equalizer automatically increases the visibility of dark areas, while still maintaining bright zones. This enables gamers to uncover every secret while experiencing the best visuals a game has to offer.



Players can spot hidden enemies in the dark as they can see through the shadows with purer dark levels. You can even find small details hidden in the shadows without pixel light bleed, providing incredible color and depth in every game. There is no need for any additional actions or tinkering with the settings. All you have to do is focus on the game.

▲ Play ‘SOLO LEVELING: ARISE’ with 4K OLED and experience a brighter, more detailed world.




For too long, external light sources such as natural sunlight or ambient lighting have reflected off the monitor to disrupt gameplay. The Odyssey OLED G8 however, applies ‘OLED Glare Free’ technology to minimize light reflection. It delivers vivid and clear colors, even without a monitor hood. With a screen 54% less glossy than conventional Anti-Reflection film, you can see your full game environment and focus solely on gameplay.

▲ The Odyssey OLED G8 minimizes light reflection through its OLED Glare Free technology.




High-end games require the highest performing graphic cards. However, these graphics cards generate large amounts of heat. Gamers want to keep their devices performing at their peak. But for monitors, too, the longer they play, the greater their concerns about the heat and burn-in.



The Odyssey OLED G8 is built with Dynamic Cooling System, which evaporates and condenses coolant to diffuse the monitor’s heat five times better than the previously used graphite sheet method. So the Odyssey OLED G8 reduces temperature at the core. Also, with Thermal Modulation System,1 the algorithms predict surface temperature and automatically control brightness accordingly to reduce heat.



The Odyssey OLED G8 is the first monitor in the world to apply a Pulsating Heat Pipe that prevents burn-in.

The Odyssey OLED G8 has built-in Smart TV apps that allow users to enjoy various streaming services as well as Samsung TV Plus, Samsung’s FAST (Free Ad-supported Streaming TV). No need to connect external devices. Just turn on your monitor, sit back and enjoy.



Utopia-for-Gamers-Odyssey-OLED-G8_main14.jpg

▲ With Smart TV Apps, use the Odyssey OLED G8 as an extra TV when it’s time to take a gaming break. It also comes with a SolarCell Remote, which negates the need for disposable batteries.






Upgrade your gaming skills by watching pro gamers’ livestreams. With the Odyssey OLED G8, you’ll see the tactical and dynamic gameplay with minute-to-second details.



The Odyssey OLED G8 is powered by an AI processor, the NQ8 AI Gen3, which upscales content to near-4K when using Samsung Gaming Hub and the built-in Smart TV apps.2 Users can now enjoy higher resolution in both gaming and entertainment content.



The Odyssey OLED G8 is also equipped with ‘AI Motion Enhancer Pro,’ which enables you to enjoy content at a higher level.3 AI technology captures the movement of small objects as they move across the screen. It then calibrates accordingly to provide a smooth and more realistic viewing experience of sporting events.

Utopia-for-Gamers-Odyssey-OLED-G8_main16.jpg




The Odyssey OLED G8 has now transformed into a TV for gaming. Now, instead of using a PC, S decides to enjoy console games in a more comfortable position. The Odyssey OLED G8 automatically recognizes the connected console and activates ‘Game Bar,’ supporting useful functions such as showing the heads-up display to provide performance information, displaying aiming points and enlarging mini maps.



The monitor features AI Auto Game Mode too.4 Just input a game into the console, and set the genre to “Auto” in the game bar. AI Auto Game Mode will analyze the game title and automatically switch the setting to display the optimal image quality and sound for the genre of the game.



You can feel the difference in the audio and visual experience as the screen’s color becomes clear and rich sound fills the space. The three-dimensional and lively sound creates a high sense of immersion as if you’re entering the gaming world.



Before, gamers had to manually switch the setting based on the game they were playing. Now, players can save time and minimize disruptions when a new game is started, while also enjoying the game in its optimal state.
