Samsung has launched a new high-spec curved gaming monitor that looks like something you'd see on the USS Enterprise -- the glossy J. J. Abrams version, not Shatner's old ride. Dubbed the Odyssey G9 (₹1,99,000), the 49in display is the world's first Dual Quad High Definition (5120x1440 resolution) gaming monitor. It features an industry first 1000R curvature, a rapid 1ms response time with a 240Hz refresh rate, 32:9 'super wide' aspect ratio, Nvidia G-Sync compatibility, and support for HDR10+. The gigantic QLED display even integrates customisable Infinity Core Lighting into its glossy white exterior, which is a nice touch for those with a taste for the extravagant. It's available in India starting today and if your bank balance is screaming at you, there are 27in and 32in variants too. With 2K resolution and a starting price of ₹49,000.
