Samsung ViewFinity S9 Release August 28 For $1599

Samsung is taking pre-orders for the Samsung ViewFinity S9 with 5K resolution, which will be released on August 28 for $1599:

This 27-inch 5K monitor is not just a high-end flagship monitor for tablets, laptops, and other computers, but a professional display which has particular emphasis on color accuracy and features for people who rely on the monitor as one of the most important technologies in their work.

As such, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 is often compared to the Apple Studio Display, another 27-inch display used by professionals and others who want the best. Or, actually Apple considers their very best to be the Apple Pro Display XDR, but that monitor is in the $6000 price range, and out of reach for most people.
