Neo QLED 8K: The Best Gaming TV for Winning | Samsung
If you’re interested in engaging in the world of foldable smartphones but aren’t sure where to start, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip line is worth a long look. Unlike the foldable smartphones with price tags pushing $2,000, you can snag the compact Galaxy Z Flip 4 for under $1,000. Of course, the Z Flip 4 has some limitations, including its lackluster cover screen, but a new rumor hints that Samsung might be looking to upgrade the external display on the Galaxy Z Flip 5.
Supersized cover screen on Galaxy Z Flip 5?
According to prolific leaker Ice Universe on Twitter, the cover screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will be bigger than that of the Oppo Find N2 Flip. In case you aren’t familiar with Oppo’s latest flip phone, Ice Universe included an image in his tweet for comparison:
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 comes with a 1.96-inch cover screen that offers relatively few features. You can view notifications, change a few settings, control select widgets, or make a payment with Samsung Pay. All in all, it’s not an especially useful addition.
Meanwhile, Oppo’s Find N2 Flip features a 3.26-inch vertical cover screen which Oppo says is the largest of its kind. Oppo included a variety of fun features, from digital pets to animated wallpapers to large, colorful widgets — none of which can be found on the Z Flip.
As it stands, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is one of the best (and most affordable) foldable smartphones on the market. That said, there’s still room for improvement. If Samsung does increase the size of the cover screen as much as this rumor suggests, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 could be a home run.
We’ll find out for sure when Samsung introduces its next-gen Z Flip later in 2023. In recent years, Samsung has launched its latest foldable phones in August.

The Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and Ultra will start shipping this week to buyers who preorder the handset. The phones rock impressive hardware that should deliver great performance. We’re looking at a custom Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip across the board, plus faster storage and faster RAM. But the Galaxy S23 isn’t the fastest phone in town, and it won’t outperform the iPhone 14, 13, or 12 in benchmark tests.
Moreover, a recent gaming performance test showed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra can barely match the iPhone SE that Apple launched last year. The mid-range iPhone features the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13 series and base iPhone 14 models.
YouTube channel Golden Reviewer put the Galaxy S23 Ultra through the same Genshin Impact gaming test it uses for other smartphones.
The best Galaxy S23 model managed to pull ahead of all Samsung phones the YouTuber tested previously. But the Galaxy S23 Ultra wasn’t in the top 10 with its performance. The phone reached an average of 55 frames per second during the 10-minute gaming session. It also heated up to a max temperature of 43.6ºC (110.48ºF).
Right below the Galaxy S23 Ultra, we have the iPhone SE 2022. The mid-range handset managed to reach 54 frames per second at a temperature of 45.1ºC (113.18ºF). The iPhone’s average power consumption is another big win for the iPhone. Samsung is far from offering the same efficiency as Apple.

Image source: YouTube Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S23 Ultra did worse than the iPhone 14 Pro Max (A16 Bionic) and iPhone 14 Plus (A15 Bionic). As we’ve explained before, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus feature a slightly better A15 variant and much better cooling than the iPhone 13.
What’s interesting is that other Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered devices fared better in the same test. The Xiaomi 13 Pro topped 59.4 frames per second, registering a peak temperature of only 39.3ºC (102.74ºF). Other Xiaomi flagships featuring last year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chip also did better in the real-life gaming test than Samsung’s 2023 flagship, as seen above.
As for other Samsung phones, the new handset is a much better gaming device than the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Last year’s flagship managed 42.1 frames per second in the gaming test, overheating to 46.5 ºC (115.7ºF) in the process.
The conclusion is on par with previous Galaxy S23 Ultra performance tests we’ve seen. The new phones feature high-end hardware that’s superior to last year’s Galaxy S22 series. But the new handsets aren’t the most powerful flagships in town. Samsung still has work to do, both when it comes to optimizing the software and cooling the handset.

Samsung Electronics today announced the global launch of Odyssey Neo G7 (Model name: G70NC), the company’s first flat Mini-LED model, adding a new form factor to the industry-leading Odyssey lineup. The new monitor delivers a large screen designed to give gamers a more comprehensive range of vision and details — inviting them to the worlds of their games with lifelike picture quality.
“The gaming monitor market is only going to get bigger, and gamers are now seeking more out of their monitors,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are not just delivering better gaming experience — we are rebuilding new smart capabilities into our screens that give gamers an all-in-one place for technology and entertainment. Our innovations are enabling gamers everywhere to stay absorbed in their games with visual performance that enhances the intense emotional experiences.”
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G7 is designed to deliver lifelike picture quality, a customizable high-performance viewing environment and personalized features for optimal gaming and entertainment.
Gaming Monitor Big Enough for Any Game and Platform
The large 43” screen delivers 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) with VESA Display HDR600 and HDR 10+ certification for advanced picture quality showcasing the best graphics of today. The Odyssey Neo G7 brings Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology to the fore, using Quantum Mini LEDs, which enable ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs. As a result, users can see richer blacks, more expansive color expression and more detail, even in shadowy gaming environments.
Additionally, the Matte Display reduces light reflection on the screen, minimizing distractions during the most intense gaming sessions and letting the large screen deliver details while keeping the player focused on the game and the stunning visual performance.
The Odyssey Neo G7 is a great monitor for any gaming platform — using DisplayPort or HDMI connection to hook it up to the users’ Gaming rig or switch to HDMI 2.1 to play on their latest game console. Another option is to play a mobile game on a larger 43” screen through the built-in WIFI/Bluetooth or just connect a controller to enjoy a game in the cloud without even having a console.
Performance To Take Gaming to the Next Level
A 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms (MPRT) response time allow a swift, smooth response and enable precise mouse movements. Even during the most intense moments, the Odyssey Neo G7 keeps extremely smooth and fast action gameplay and reduces stuttering, input latency and screen tearing through AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support.
Users increasingly expect personalized and customizable gaming experiences. The Odyssey Neo G7 provides a range of innovative features that let users adjust screen size, position and even ratio for an optimal gaming setup. Flex Move Screen allows users to adjust the screen size between 43- and 20-inches to match their preferred size based on the game they play and even change the screen position. So, users can find the perfect way to perform at their best in any game.
To personalize their performance, users can use Samsung Game Bar,1 a powerful tool enabling users to quickly view and change important settings without ever needing to leave the game screen. Players can see and change FPS (Frames Per Second), aspect ratio, high dynamic range (HDR) and variable refresh rate (VRR) or adjust settings such as screen ratio, response time and Game Picture mode. Game Bar puts the player in control without missing any of the action.
Smart Features for Personalized Experiences
The Odyssey Neo G7 is equipped with smart features to cater to users’ wide variety of needs, with customizable experiences through Samsung Smart Hub and Samsung Gaming Hub.
Samsung Gaming Hub2 is an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform that allows instant access to games from partners such as Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce NOW, with no downloads or storage space requirements. It is the ultimate tool to enable users the freedom to explore every corner of the gaming world without limitations.
In addition, users can also get the smart TV experience with apps from partners like Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube through Samsung Smart Hub to enjoy various over-the-top (OTT) content using an Internet connection without even booting up their PC or connecting to other devices.

Samsung is the king of the foldable smartphone business right now because there’s really nobody else to challenge it. Most of the exciting Galaxy Z Fold competitors out there are restricted to China. And Apple isn’t making a foldable iPhone yet. But the lack of competition won’t stop Samsung’s innovating in the space. The new Flex Hybrid screen that folds and rolls/slides into a large 12.4-inch tablet is proof of that.
Announced ahead of CES 2023, the Flex Hybrid display folds out just like the Galaxy Z Fold smartphones. The main screen sits inside, and the device becomes a 10.5-inch tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
But this is where things get interesting. The right side of the Flex Hybrid screen slides or rolls to the right. The display diagonal extends all the way to 12.4 inches, as the device becomes a large tablet with a 16:10 aspect ratio display.

There’s no telling when Samsung will make a commercial device like the one in the image above. And we might not necessarily want such gadgets in our hands anytime soon. As exciting as these display innovations might be, the resulting device appears to be rather bulky and not that great looking.
Moreover, with so many moving parts in play, the Flex Hybrid display is a drop away from permanent damage.
Still, we need companies like Samsung to showcase what they can create right now. That’s the only way to advance the tech we need for the foldable devices of the future.

Samsung has two concepts in place. The Flex Slidable Solo expands the screen in one direction. The Flex Slidable Duet lets you slide both sides into something larger. The screen measures 13- to 14-inch before you extend it. It becomes a 17.3-inch tablet/laptop when you slide out the sides.
Like the Flex Hybrid, durability remains the primary concern with these slidable screens. And, again, there’s no telling if we’ll see them in commercial devices anytime soon.
