Ahead of CES 2024, Samsung has made a monumental announcement, unveiling not only their highly anticipated 2024 TV lineup but also the groundbreaking QD-OLED Gen 3 monitor panels.

This year, Samsung introduced monitor panels that are not just visually stunning but also technologically advanced, featuring significantly brighter displays, enhanced pixel density, and marked improvements in lifespan and durability.

In this guide, we'll explore the specifications of the Samsung QD-OLED Gen 3 panels, and list the available monitors equipped with these state-of-the-art panels.

Samsung QD-OLED Gen 3 monitor panel specifications

The 2024 Samsung QD-OLED Gen 3 lineup features two versatile panels: a 32-inch and a 27-inch version. Both models are offered in curved and flat designs, allowing users to choose according to their ergonomic needs and aesthetic tastes.

The 32-inch features a 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160), complemented by a swift 240Hz refresh rate and a sharp 140 PPI. On the other hand, the 27-inch model offers a QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and takes the refresh rate to a new high with 360Hz, alongside a 110 PPI pixel density.

Samsung has utilised special ultra-precise inkjet printing technology for the quantum dot light-emitting layer, optimizing inkjet nozzle and spray volume to achieve these high resolutions and pixel densities.

A key highlight is the maximum brightness, which now exceeds 3000 nits, a remarkable achievement that brings unparalleled vibrancy and clarity to the screen. Additionally, each RGB colour brightness has been boosted by 50% compared to the 2nd Gen panels.
