Samsung has added two new versions to its Smart Monitor lineup, a 43-inch UHD model and a 24-inch FHD model.
The 43-inch 4k M7 model is the biggest in the lineup, while the 24-inch 1080p M5 model is the smallest. The monitors can double up as a smart TV powered by Tizen OS and built-in speakers. It also provides remote desktop access, new options of smart assistants — Bixby, Google Assistant and Alexa — and wireless support for DeX.
The new 43-inch monitor adds to the existing 32-inch option in the M7 UHD series. The 24-inch monitor adds to the existing 27-inch and 32-inch options in the M5 FHD series. The company has released a white version of 27-inch and 32-inch monitors.
The new 43-inch M7 monitor also comes with a solar-powered remote that can be charged from indoor sunglight, lightbulbs and USB-C connection.
While the older monitor versions only supported Bixby, Samsung has also added Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant options. The remote access feature will also be updated in June.
Users can also access OTT content via Netflix, Youtube and many more directly on the Samsung smart monitors.
Samsung’s smart monitor series was introduced in November 2020 and were marketed as “do-it-all” screens with built-in speakers, enhanced remote connectivity and Tizen apps.
“Our expanded Smart Monitor lineup will continue to provide users with even more convenient and flexible ways to accomplish everyday activities through technology, enabling them to truly ‘do it all’ through powerful mobile and PC connectivity on the smartest monitor available on the market today. As time spent working, learning and playing from home increases for people around the world, homes are being transformed into multi-functional environments, ” said Hyesung Ha, Senior VP of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
