The latest member of Samsung’s Viewfinity series, the Viewfinity S8UP, focuses on high color fidelity and is therefore aimed at anyone who works a lot with images and graphics. What features does the new monitor have?
The Samsung Viewfinity S8UP’s main focus is color coordination, as the monitor covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. The IPS panel guarantees an authentic representation of over 2,000 colors with Pantone recognition. This version also includes 110 skin tones for the first time.
Samsung brings one next to it 27 inch model with QHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) is also a 32 inches with UHD resolution (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) at the beginning. The display surface is also matte and “glare-free,” meaning reflections and reflections are reduced. However, the refresh rate is (unfortunately) included 60Hz only100 Hz or higher here would be quite pleasant.
Practical: automatic brightness adjustment
Samsung Viewfinity S8UP’s screen brightness automatically adjusts to the environment at four different levels. A sensor detects ambient light and then chooses between dark, normal, bright or very bright. This means that you no longer have to set your screen brightness manually, but can easily hand over this task to the device. According to the data sheet, the 27-inch model achieves up to 400 nits, and the 32-inch version should do even that. Provide up to 600 nits (but both in HDR mode).
of Eye saver mode and flicker free technology The aim is to ensure that the image is easy on the eyes. Eye saver mode reduces the emission of blue light, which causes special stress on the retina of our eyes. Flicker Free technology eliminates monitor flicker, so that eyes tire more slowly when looking at the screen for long periods of time.
Sustainability in focus
Apart from display quality, durability is a priority for Samsung. Part of the material used is closed Recycled plastic, which is made from ocean plastic waste. Samsung intends to increase the proportion of this recycled plastic over time. A low pixel brightness through “Eco Savings Plus” technology reduces the Viewfinity S8UP’s power consumption by up to ten percent.
On the connectivity side, 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI as well as 3x USB 3.0 and 1x 3.5mm jack are available. Additional equipment includes a 90 W USB-C port, to charge external devices, and an Ethernet port. You can buy the Samsung ViewFinity S8UP from early August.
