Samsung has launched a new range of monitors for 2021, with the 12 screens across three product ranges including the 27-inch S80UA with a USB-C connection capable of recharging your MacBook Pro.

Launched on Monday, the 2021 Samsung monitor range consists of a collection of displays ranging from 24 inches to 34 inches in size, and equally high resolutions. The group is spread across three different series with the S8 aimed at creative professionals while the S7 and S6 offer simple and seamless displays for most users.

The S8 series covers three monitors, with the S80A including 32-inch and 27-inch models, while the S80UA is a 27-inch screen. All are capable of a UHD resolution, with color support for 1.07 billion colors, a 99% sRGB color gamut, and HDR10 support.

The models offer a built-in USB hub with three USB 3.0 ports, though the S80A adds an extra USB 2.0 port. The S80UA also has an extra port, though it is USB-C and offers up to 90W of power delivery as well as supporting 10Gbps data transfers.

The range includes a flat borderless design, which can help in the creation of a near-seamless dual-monitor setup. It is also supplied with a height-adjustable stand with a variety of tilt, swivel, and pivot controls.

The S7-series is represented by 32-inch and 27-inch screens under the S70A model number, Like the S8, the pair can produce a UHD picture with 99% sRGB support and HDR 10, as well as the borderless design.

Where the S7 differs is that it is the only one in the range to not include any built-in USB hub functionality.

Samsung's 2021 display range includes minimal bezels for better multi-display setups.

The S6 series spans three models with varied specifications. All again offer 1.07 billion color and HDR10 support, and also work with AMD FreeSync.

The S65UA is a 34-inch screen with a 1000R curved design and a UWQHD resolution, making it capable of displaying a 3,440 by 1,440 picture.

Samsung's S60UA trio of 32-inch, 27-inch, and 24-inch monitors opt for a flat design, as well as a QHD 2,560 by 1,440 resolution.

Both the S65UA and S60UA model numbers include USB hub functionality with three USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port. They also offer a USB-C port with power delivery and support for LAN connectivity.

Lastly, the S60A in 32-inch, 27-inch, and 24-inch variants has a QHD resolution and a flat design, as well as a three-port USB 3.0 hub built in. Unlike the other S6 models, it doesn't have a USB-C port.

For this generation, Samsung has also ensured all of the displays are Intelligent Eye Care certified by TUV Rheinland. The system allows for the displays to automatically adjust the brightness and color temperature to respond to the local environment, both for user comfort and for reduced eyestrain. An eye-saver mode is also included to reduce blue light emissions, and are flicker-free.

Pricing and availability for the new models have yet to be announced by Samsung.
