Samsung Series 7 Windows 8 Monitors Introduced; Touch-Screen Enabled, Tilting Panel And More

I am the big fan of Samsung products, it could be a laptop or a smartphone or a LED television and we are expecting a great range of technical designs to be released this year, but it seems that the south Korean electronics has taken their first step by announcing a couple of new Series 7 monitors, one of them which will be supported by different orientations, with the other being particularly optimized to work seamlessly with Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 operating system.

The early reveal of its forthcoming Series 7 monitors carries the SC770 model number and will be a 24-inch posing a panel resolution of 1920 x 1080, offering a full 1080p high-definition experience to users – due to be unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas next week – with two new models on offer.

Series-7-2

The SC770 would be the first monitor released by the Korean company that has been specifically designed and opted to be used on conjunction with Windows 8, and has therefore been optimized (developed) to be multi-touch compatible, and that allows users to flawlessly navigate through Microsoft’s new operating system through on-screen gestures enabled. The SC770 monitor will also feature with an adjustable base with a 60-degree tilt capability. Making it easier to swipe your way though Windows 8 on your desktop.

The newly announced monitor mirrors the design of some Samsung’s latest LED TVs and gives you a multi-touch panel, supporting up to 10 points of the touch architecture. By offerings a thin bazel and ergonomic stand with 60-degree tilt to help you get the perfect position. You get a 24-inch full HD panel, with a 5000:1 contrast ratio and HDMI connection.

The second release has been given the SC750 model number and is a 27-inch creation that should appeal to those looking for a non-touch based output device. The SC750 monitor model offers 90-degree rotation, offering a contrast ratio of 5000:1 and wide viewing angles from the LED display, and an HDMI connection around the back. Like it’s smaller touch-based brother, the SC750 will come with the same full high-definition 1080p resolution and will also benefit from the ability to pivot over 90-degrees to allow the user to view content in portrait and landscape orientations. If you’re one of those people who’s always shooting your iPhone 5 video in portrait, this might be just the ticket to rejoice.

Samsung has announced that both of the new monitors (SC770 & SC750) will be available to purchase during the first quarter of 2013.

Actually the Galaxy S4 specs have been kept under wraps for the most of time, but this new rumor has surfaced stating that the handset will come with its very own S Pen – a stylus-style accessory found on the latest Galaxy Note 2 and its predecessor.

This news that comes directly from the most popular Korean site known as Enuri, stating that the Galaxy S IV or so called it S4 smartphone will be the first handset in the series to feature the S Pen and its accompanying functionality as Samsung hopes to unite its Note series with the Galaxy S4 and and claims that the Galaxy S IV will higher-quality include a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, in line with the plans being adopted by Samsung’s competitors, and much-enhanced performance.

If it’s believed that the leaked ones are accurate, then the new smartphone may inbclude a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip; yet it has also been speculated that the S IV might instead be powered by ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture, with a Samsung A7 for basic tasks like texting and internet browsing, along with a more powerful A15 chip processing for more resource-intensive tasks such as mobile gaming and more off it runs Android Jelly Bean.

Galaxy-Note-II-4

Interestingly the newly surfaced rumors suggesting that Samsung’s upcoming handset will share cues from the company’s smartphone/tablet hybrid, the Note II.

This slightly larger touch-screen device features an ‘S Pen’, a revival of the old concept of the stylus found in older PDA devices from the first half of the last decade, to allow much more precision in carrying out certain tasks, sometimes difficult with touch-screen devices alone.

This latest news particularly pointing the accuracy, then the ‘S Pen’ will make its way onto Samsung’s next smartphone of 2013. The Galaxy S4 will be released sometime in 2013 and could debut as early as next month.
