South Korean technology company Samsung will launch a new product to compete with the Apple Studio Display on July 3.
The Viewfinity S9 will be available for purchase starting July 3 in South Korea. Those outside the region will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the Studio Display competitor. The S9, according to the company’s newsroom website, will be priced at 1.7 million won, or approximately $1,299. The product is currently in pre-order status and is officially released on July 3.
Jeong Hoon, vice president of video displays at Samsung Electronics, says the S9 will function as a high-resolution monitor. The 27-inch screen has a 5K resolution, internal speakers, Thunderbolt 4 connections, and the P3 color gamut. There’s also a 4K webcam, a height-adjustable stand, and a platform for viewing media. It is not yet known when the ViewFinity S9 will arrive in other regions and countries.
