The CES Innovation Award Honoree has a 4K (3,840 x 2,160 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio) matte display with a max 165Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support. Response time is rated at 1ms (GtG), and the 1,000,000:1 static contrast ratio is said to reveal even more subtle details.

Samsung is also supporting Dolby Atmos for higher resolution content up to 4K, which it claims is powered by data from 20 neural networks.

Four HDMI 2.1 ports and an RJ45 network jack are included in the port selection. The screen is height adjustable, can tilt and pivot, and is compatible with Vesa wall mounts in 200x200, 300x300, and 400x400. For a unique user experience, it can even be manually rotated to a vertical orientation.

Samsung includes a standard television remote as well as a secondary control device called the Ark Dial, which can be charged via USB Type-C and even has a solar panel for some reason.

Flex Move Screen allows you to change the screen size from 55 inches to 27 inches, as well as change the screen position, and toggle between screen ratios, effectively eliminating the need for multi-monitor setups.

Samsung's 55-inch Odyssey Ark is available for pre-order starting today, for $3,499.99, and is expected to ship in early September. Other options include Samsung's Odyssey G9, which has a 49-inch screen, and its 55-inch OLED TV.
