Samsung Electronics recently announced the ViewFinity S8, a high-end monitor designed for creative professionals and alike. ViewFinity is the company’s new moniker for the high-resolution monitor series. This article will look at the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Samsung ViewFinity S8 in Nepal. 

Samsung ViewFinity S8 Overview:

Display

The ViewFinity S8 is available with two screen sizes: 27″ and 32″. These are 4K resolution IPS LCD panels with factory calibration that assures up to one billion colors are projected on the screen—although the display itself does not have 10-bit color depth.

Likewise, the screen has 98% DCI-P3 coverage, is DisplayHDR certified (DisplayHDR 600 for the 32″& DisplayHDR 400 for the 27″ model), and has Pantone certification. However, the notable feature is that it is the world’s first UL verified Glare Free monitor with a matte finish, which lowers light reflection on the screen.

In terms of brightness, the 32″ model has a peak brightness of 600 nits, whilst the 27″ model is limited to 400 nits. Other display characteristics include a 5ms response time, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and intelligent eye care.

Rest of the specs

Moving on, the ViewFinity S8 includes a height-adjustable stand with tilt and swivel adjustments. It can even be wall-mounted using a 100 x 100 mm VESA mount. 

As with most monitors nowadays, the S8 comes with a variety of I/O connections, including a USB-C (with 90W charging support), one Display Port, one HDMI, and three USB-A downstream ports. Additionally, there’s also a LAN port, so you can plug in a wired ethernet cable.
