Samsung Introduces Colorful Refresh to Smart Monitors
Featuring a SlimFit Cam and four color options to personalize your space,
the new M8 Series helps users watch, work and chat in style – even without a separate PC
Samsung Electronics America., Inc. today announced a colorful upgrade to its innovative Smart Monitor line with all-new M8 series that enables users to enjoy a smart TV experience, seamless workspace connectivity and video chat functionality in one “do-it-all” stylish screen. The versatile new M8 delivers Samsung’s iconic slim design in four new colors – Warm White, Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue, and Spring Green – and is available now for pre-order starting at $699.99 in 32-inches with UHD resolution and HDR10+, and includes a SlimFit Cam with face tracking and auto zoom functions.
“We aspired to create a product capable of matching the lifestyles of all kinds of people and preferences,” said Kyounghoon Kim, Executive Vice President and Head of Design Team, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “The M8’s palette of four colors was inspired by the theme ‘Shades of Nature.’ Gazing at the clear blue sky on a bright sunny day, recharging in the lush green forest, or finally bathing in the glow of a sunset,” he added.
Smart TV Experience
First introduced in November 2020, Samsung’s Smart Monitors are the world’s first “do-it-all” screens designed for modern day users whose lifestyle needs include a product with both work functionality and entertainment at home. Not only does it function as a traditional monitor, the M8 also allows users to enjoy a variety of OTT services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and Apple TV via Wi-Fi without having to connect to a PC or TV. Samsung TV Plus also offers free live and on-demand content with no downloads or sign-up needed, while Universal Guide provides personalized content recommendations.
Iconic Slim design
When it comes to style, the Smart Monitor M8 offers both space and work efficiency in an ultra-stylish design. The thinness of the new model is 11.4mm, about 75% slimmer than the previous models. Featuring a sophisticated flat-back design, M8’s range of colors complement any environment based on the user’s personal preferences.
For consumers seeking a monitor for working at home, the M8 has it all. The monitor provides a perfect home office environment, without the need of a PC, by connecting to various IT devices through the upgraded Smart Hub. With new the Workspace feature, users can remotely access another PC, use Microsoft 365 programs and even connect to Samsung mobile devices with Samsung DeX for seamless working.
For those looking to connect with convenience, the USB type-C port enables users to power up, transmit data, and even send display signals between devices with just one connection.
The M8 has a magnetic and removable SlimFit Cam that can attach to the monitor, keeping desk space neat without any unsightly wires. The camera also features face tracking and auto zoom functions, making it a perfect option for an active presentation or livestreaming. The monitor also supports video chat apps such as Google Duo, allowing users to work remotely or engage in video conferencing at home or in the workplace using the SlimFit Cam.
The Smart Monitor M8 includes an IoT hub called SmartThings Hub, where users can connect all their IoT devices wirelessly. The SmartThings app allows users to track IoT devices throughout the house easily with the app’s intuitive control panel highlighting all information provided by other devices connected to the M8, including light switches and plug power.
Multiple Voice Assistants
Equipped with a high-sensitivity Far Field Voice microphone, the assistant controls devices such as Bixby and Amazon Alexa using voice commands. Additionally, the microphone uses an Always On Voice function, displaying conversation information on screen when Bixby is activated, even if the monitor screen is turned off.
“The M8 series is designed to meet the needs of today’s consumers now that the home has become the center of life, including work as well as leisure,” said Mark Quiroz, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “Our goal is to ensure that people don’t have to choose between technology devices. With our new Smart Monitor, they really can do it all from one single screen as we’ve equipped it with all the necessary tools and features needed to seamlessly transition between work, entertainment, and learning.”
To accompany the monitor’s wide array of features, the display offers adaptive picture technology, enhancing viewer comfort by automatically adjusting display brightness and color temperature.
