I would like to know if it is possible to display a raster cell value in the center of a cell with ArcGIS in the same way that SAGA-GIS does when you zoom in.

You could use the Pixel Inspector tool for dynamic viewing


Or, could convert the raster to points and label by the values


Here is a work around that accomplishes what you want by creating a shapefile of points in the center of each cell:

RasterToPoint_conversion (in_raster, out_point_features, raster_field)

Set display fill to "None"

Label points as values, no offset.
