Samsung announces M8 smart monitors: Price, pre-orders, specs

Samsung has announced a new smart monitor lineup called the M8. These feature a slim profile, a 32-inch display, support HDR10+ and include a webcam with face tracking and auto-zoom. They also support several OTT services. 

The M8 smart monitor is available for pre-booking globally starting at $699.99

The Samsung M8 smart monitors come in at 11.4mm thick and have a flat back design, resembling the newly released Apple Studio Display. And while the resolution is decent enough at 3840 x 2160, the 60Hz refresh rate can let some users down. 

You also get dual 5W speakers and a remote in the box, and the monitor can hook up to your WiFi network for streaming content. As far as connectivity goes, there’s an option of a micro-HDMI port and two USB-C ports supporting up to 65W charging.

Just another pretty screen?

Samsung M8 smart monitor series does, however, pack a few additional features. There’s a new Workspace feature allowing remote connections to other PCs and support for Samsung Dex, a feature that turns your Samsung smartphone into a full-fledged PC. 

The USB-C ports on the back support power, data transmission and display signals between devices over a single connection. The SmartThings Hub is built right into the monitor, letting users take control and monitor their smart devices from the display itself.

As for the SlimFit camera, it attaches magnetically to the monitor without any cables and supports face tracking and auto-zoom features as mentioned above. Finally, there’s support for Samsung’s Bixby and Amazon’s Alexa.

The display also has an always-on voice function that shows conversation information right on the display when Bixby is activated, even if the monitor is turned off.
