Samsung ViewFinity S9 5K Monitor with 4K Camera Now Available – An Excellent Monitor For MacMini and MacBooks

Unveiled mid-July this year, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 5K monitor is finally available. The ViewFinity S9 is a 27″ monitor with a resolution of 5120×2880, resulting in a pixel density of 218 PPI. I have a 27″ 4K monitor with a PPI of 163, and the ViewFinity S9 has more pixels per inch than my GP27U. Aside from the super high resolution, it also has a detachable 4K SlimFit camera and connectivity options like Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt 4. The ViewFinity S9 is not only an excellent monitor for Windows, but it’s also perfect for Mac Mini, Mac Studio, or MacBooks (M series). It’s now available on Amazon.com here, and you can read more details from the official news release below.

Explore the possibilities of what you can create on a bigger canvas with incredible detail (218 PPI) and true color accuracy. The ViewFinity S9 is Samsung’s first 5K high resolution IPS display designed for creators (5,120 x 2,880). The 27-inch display offers DCI-P3 99% color gamut and 600 nits of brightness to deliver the color saturation and detail that brings your ideas to life. You can see improved image shadow and highlight details and preserve screen color accuracy with a Matte Display that works to drastically reduces light reflections.

To customize the display calibration for different projects, the S9 can use your smartphone to adjust settings like DCI-P3 or sRGB color space, color temperature, luminance, and gamma. Smart Calibration allows for simple and intuitive customization without the need for additional, complex calibration tools. [1]

Designed to easily connect Windows and select Mac devices, the ViewFinity S9 has Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt™ 4 (90W) and USB-C connectivity.[2] The slim, metal design works for you in any space, with a height-adjustable screen that tilts for the best angle and 90 degree pivot to view long documents with less scrolling. Plus, you can keep your desk clutter-free and clean with VESA-compatible mounting.

Content capture in high resolution and crystal-clear video calls have never been easier with the monitor’s detachable 4K SlimFit camera that attaches to the top of the display bezel.
