Samsung plans to be launching its new ViewFinity Monitor S8UT, a successor to its recent S8 model that it released this summer. The new monitor will build upon most everything the S8 has to offer with the exception of HDR400 support.
The ViewFinity Monitor S8UT will be 4K@60Hz, HDR10, and a 99% sRGB color space. It will have two Thunderbolt 4 connections on the back that will be used to bring both data and power to the monitor in a single cable to help reduce cable clutter. It supports 90W charging power through that TB4 connection, allowing it to charge additional devices or daisy out to additional Thunderbolt devices (such as another monitor, external drive, and more). The main TB4 port supports the 90W while the second supports 15W output.
In addition to this, it will feature integrated speakers, an ambient light sensor to help control brightness with (when eco savings mode is enabled), as well as three USB 3.0 ports and one Ethernet port along the back. Essentially packing in a basic dock into the back of the screen. So users may not have to plug anything else into their laptop when docking it to the monitor via the TB4 connection.
Of course, it will also feature HDMI and a typical power connection for those that don’t have TB4 support within their tower or laptop. Although most people likely won’t be interested in this model unless they are looking for that TB4 support, else why single this model out over others?
Additional specs include IP panel type, edge-lit, 350 nits max brightness, 5ms response time, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and 60Hz refresh (aka, not the best pick for gamers).
A specific release date hasn’t been offered by Samsung just yet, nor has the company released pricing information. But you will likely have a choice between either 27″ or 32″ model options and a starting price range of around $599 at the least.
