What is the Odyssey Ark?

Tech fans may be familiar with the Odyssey range in recent years for its curved monitors. At the 2022 CES event, Samsung continued the line’s legacy with the unveiling of the Odyssey Ark. 

The Odyssey Ark has a 55in curved display, which can be used in both portrait mode and horizontally. Its large screen also allows a multi-tasking set-up, meaning users can have multiple windows open at one time.

Samsung Odyssey Ark price explored

There is no official word on the Samsung Odyssey Ark pricing as of yet however, it is estimated to be a big-ticket expense. According to Techspot, the curved monitor’s manufacturer suggested retail price is said to be around $2,500. 

Due to its size, the Odyssey Ark has been compared to Samsung’s previous model Odyssey Neo G9 which was released in August last year. 

The Odyssey Neo G9, which has a 49in screen, cost $2,499.99 to pre-order at the time of its release. As the Odyssey Ark is a larger model with a screen size of 55in its pre-order cost could be higher. 

The Odyssey Ark is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2022, as per Gizmodo, meaning details on the pricing may be available in the coming months.
