Samsung Smart Monitor M7, M5 now official
Samsung has officially launched and announced the global availability of its latest display, the Smart Monitor M7, and M5.
The new Samsung Smart Monitor sports mobile and PC connectivity, remote home office, and learning features as well as the Smart Hub, which is a comprehensive entertainment hub, similar to the brand’s built-in Smart TV platform. It is equipped with various connectivity options for both PCs and smartphones. Users can connect their personal mobile devices through Tap View, App Casting, or Apple AirPlay. However, users may also connect to the monitor using a mobile device with Samsung DeX.
The Smart Monitor features Adaptive Picture to optimize the screen’s picture quality for any viewing environment. It automatically adjusts brightness and color temperature under different room conditions. The monitor also has a special eye-saver mode to reduce blue light for eye protection. It comes in two models: a 32-inch M7 that supports Ultra-High Definition (UHD) resolution and a 27-inch and 32-inch M5 with an FHD resolution.
It allows users to operate Microsoft Office 365 applications even without a PC connection with its embedded Wi-Fi, allowing users to view, edit, and save documents in the cloud directly from the monitor. It supports remote access allowing users to wirelessly access files from a PC and view contents from laptops. It comes with multiple USB ports, Bluetooth 4.2, and a built-in two-channel speaker. It also has a USB Type C port for data, display, and power — up to 65W — with a single connection.
Moreover, it comes with an app store that allows users to access Netflix, HBO, and YouTube. It includes a remote control with streaming service hotkeys and can also be controlled by voice with the Bixby integration.
The Samsung Smart Monitor M7 32-inch comes with a price tag of USD 399.99. On the other hand, the M5 27-inch is priced at USD 229.99, while the 32-inch retails at USD 279.99. Its global rollout is expected to begin by the end of November.
