Corsair has just unveiled their next-gen bendable gaming monitor that can be curved or used as a flat-screen pretty conveniently. Incredible as it is, this monitor is also packed with loads of gaming-oriented features that most will admire. On the other hand, Odessey G9 from Samsung is already a successful top-notch curved gaming monitor preferred by most. So people would be eager to know how these two monitors compare in terms of color accuracy, display, performance, and functionality.
Corsair Xeneon Flex vs Samsung Odyssey G9
No one can deny that the Xeneon Flex is Corsair’s bendable monitor is looking pretty dope. But how good will it be compared to the Odessey G9 from Samsung? In this article, we will compare head-on to determine which one is worth the investment. Let’s get started.
|Specification||Corsair Xeneon Flex||Samsung Odyssey G9|
|Display Size||45 inch||49-inch|
|Resolution||3,440×1,440||5,120 x 1,440|
|Refresh Rate||240Hz||60~240Hz (Verticle),71.04kHZ~357.6kHZ (Horizontal)|
Now the obvious difference between these two is how effortlessly you can curve or flatten the screen of the Xeneo Flex, which is not possible on the Odessey Neo G9. This foldable display can be used for gaming as well as productivity alike. The screen can be curved as much as 800R by simply pulling the handles on each side.
However, the screen resolution is slightly limited on the Corsair Xeneon Flex. This 45-inch gaming monitor has a native resolution of 3,440 by 1,440p with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
Other than that, it is an OLED panel with a refresh rate of up to 240Hz. While the 49-inch Odyssey Neo G9 also shares the same refresh rate, it has a 5,120 by 1,440p native resolution coupled with 1000R curvature and a Mini-LED panel.
Other than that, the Xeneon Flex has a beefy stand that is filled with ports. We can see plenty of display connections including HDMI and DisplayPorts, along with USB 3.0 and USB-C ports on the front and back. The monitor itself looks pretty clean and minimal, which is likely to adapt to any kind of setup. Neo G9, on the other hand, has a futuristic vibe to it. The Core-Sync lighting on the back looks really cool, while the snowy exposure of the overall monitor gives it a premium look. Unlike the Xeneon Flex, the v-shaped stand of this monitor is quite minimal.
“The Odyssey Neo G9 falls on the expensive side. While there is no confirmation regarding the price of the Xeneon Flex, we are expecting it to be one of the most expensive gaming monitors on the market, especially for its foldable functionality. However, as it is a 1440p OLED monitor, the price might be slightly lower than most 4K OLED screens that are currently available on the market. Although the Odyssey Neo G9 is quite expensive it is one of the best-curved gaming monitors to date. Corsair Xeneon Flex, however, has the best of both gaming and productivity usage to offer.”
