RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- December 31, 2012

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in digital media and digital
convergence technologies, today debuted two new additions to its lineup of
premium monitors, putting professional-grade picture quality within reach for
professional and consumer audiences alike. The innovative Series 7 SC770 Touch
Monitor comes optimized for Windows 8, while the Series 7 SC750 features a
slim, ergonomic design and premium picture quality. These CES Innovation
Award-winning monitors will be on display at the International Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) in Samsung’s booth, #12004 in Central Hall, from
January 8-11, 2013.

“We are committed to serving an expanding market of aspiring young
professionals with the professional-grade monitors that match their needs,”
said Jung-Hwan Kim, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at
Samsung Electronics. “As the industry leader for seven consecutive years,
Samsung is exploring new technology that provides discerning users with
affordable, cutting-edge monitors that deliver a differentiated user
experience.”

Series 7 Touch (SC770): Touch-Sensitive Monitor

The Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor is Samsung’s first multi-touch display
optimized for Windows 8. Supporting up to 10 points of simultaneous
multi-touch, users can drag, rotate or select objects on the monitor using
their fingers.

The flexible, ergonomic stand of the SC770 conveniently adjusts to user
preferences, offering a 60-degree tilt for comfortable use of the touch
display. Additionally, the ultra-thin bezel along with wide viewing angles
provides a truly immersive viewing experience.

Series 7 (SC750): Ergonomic Design

The Series 7 SC750 monitor sports a slim, ergonomic design that is capable of
a 90-degree pivot for enhanced convenience to users. It is optimized for
surfing the web and viewing documents in both landscape and portrait modes.

The monitor’s sleek stand precisely positions the screen at a comfortable
eye-level without the need for a support fixture and its cylinder-shaped metal
stand accentuates the beauty of the slim monitor. Displaying ultra-sharp
images, the SC750 monitor touts a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, which is five times
that of a standard monitor.

The Series 7 SC750 monitor and the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor will be
available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.

Series 9 (SB970): Professionally Pre-Calibrated Monitor

First released in the second half of 2012 to the U.S. market, Samsung’s
award-winning Series 9 monitor will also be on display at CES. Offering
unparalleled picture quality and life-like color accuracy, each individual
monitor is individually hand-tuned by technicians before it is shipped. In
addition, a built-in color calibration engine enables users to adjust the
uniformity, gamma and white balance of the display using Samsung’s proprietary
Natural Color Expert technology, resulting in the most accurate color
possible.

The Series 9 monitor also utilizes a PLS (Plane Line Switching) panel and
Wide-Quad high-definition resolution (WQHD), delivering four times more detail
than traditional HD. Inspired by modern skyscrapers, the product’s elegant,
minimalistic design has netted the SB970 monitor some of the industry’s top
design honors, including the 2012 IDEA Bronze Award and Japan Good Design
Award.
