Samsung announces stylish and versatile Smart Monitor M8 series.
Samsung announces the Smart Monitor M8 series. The versatile M8 features Samsung’s iconic slim design and is available in four new colours: Warm White, Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue and Spring Green. The Smart Monitor has a 32-inch display with UHD resolution and a SlimFit Cam.
First launched in November 2020, Samsung’s Smart Monitor series is a line-up of the world’s first all-in-one displays. Designed for anyone looking for a versatile display. Enjoy a variety of content from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and Apple TV, without connecting to a PC or TV. The M8 has a refined, thin design (11.4 mm) and is around three quarters slimmer than previous models. With four new colours to choose from, you can pick the one that suits you best.
“We strived to create a product that fits everyone’s lifestyle and preferences,” says Evert Van Camp, Display Director of Samsung Benelux. “The M8’s colour palette, which consists of four colours, is inspired by the ‘Shades of Nature’ theme, from a clear blue sky on a bright sunny day, to the lush green forest or the glow of a sunset.”
Perfect monitor for your home office
The M8 is the perfect monitor for your home office. Connect to a variety of IT devices via the integrated Smart Hub, without the need to boot up a PC. The Workspace user interface provides all the applications you need to work on one screen, and connects wirelessly to a Windows or Mac PC. This allows you to efficiently use useful features such as Samsung DeX, Apple AirPlay 2 and Microsoft 365 cloud service2. You can also easily mirror your smartphone screen on the M8.
The Smart Monitor M8 features a magnetic and removable SlimFit Cam, which attaches wirelessly to the monitor. The SlimFit Cam has face recognition and auto-zoom functions, quickly identifying a person’s face and automatically focusing on the subject. Ideal for presentations and live streams. The M8 also supports video chat apps, such as Google Duo. This makes it easy to work together remotely or hold video conferences
With the SmartThings Hub, you can connect your IoT devices wirelessly with the monitor. Use the SmartThings app to track your IoT devices throughout your home and read information about your devices connected to the M8, including light switch and plug3. Control Bixby and Amazon Alexa4 with voice commands using the high-sensitivity Far-Field Voice microphone. It also uses an Always-On Voice feature, which displays call information on the screen when Bixby is activated, even when the screen is off.
The screen automatically adjusts its brightness and colour temperature to the surrounding environment for extra viewing comfort. The M8 has a height-adjustable stand (HAS) and tilt function to find the perfect position for every project. From a movie night to a work session. The Smart Monitor M8 has received a CES Innovation Awards Honoree from the CTA (Consumer Technology Association) to recognise a wide range of display technologies.
