Samsung Electronics launched a new Smart Monitor, “do-it-all screen,” enhanced with dynamic features for entertainment, work, and learning built for multitasking in a single display.
The Samsung Smart Monitor combines powerful PC and mobile connectivity, remote office and learning features, and Smart Hub. The Smart Hub includes a comprehensive entertainment system, similar to the Smart TV’s built-in entertainment platform, which offers streaming content.
The monitor’s app enables users to access HBO, Netflix, and YouTube, even without a PC or device connection. The remote control includes streaming service hotkeys for easy access to contents. Bixby integration also allows voice control of the display monitor.
Hyesung Ha, Samsung’s Senior VP of Visual Display Business, stated that work, education, and entertainment diverted to home-centered activities. Due to the pandemic, people stay at home most of the time, engaging in home-oriented digital activities and technologies. The Smart Monitor responds to that demand, and it enables consumers to maximize its multiple features in one display.
The Smart Monitor
Samsung’s Smart Monitor offers different connectivity options for smartphones and PCs. Users could connect their mobile phones to the monitor via App Casting or Apple AirPlay, and Samsung DeX.
The Smart Monitor could operate Microsoft Office 365 applications without a PC connection. The embedded Wi-Fi also allows users to view, edit, and save documents through the monitor’s cloud. Users could also remotely access files from a PC or laptop located anywhere in the house or office.
The monitor contains two built-in channel speakers, multiple USB ports, and Bluetooth 4.2. It also includes a USB Type-C port, which allows up to 65W power in a single connection.
Samsung’s flat-screen monitor comes in two models, the M7 and the M5. The 32-inch display M7 provides ultra-high definition (UHD) resolution while the M5 provides full HD resolution in 32 and 27-inch displays.
The Smart Monitor also features an Adaptive Picture technology intended to bring comfort and an enjoyable viewing experience. The Adaptive Picture feature enhances picture quality by automatically adjusting brightness and color temperature in any environment. It could reduce eye strain after long hours of work or extended viewing. The monitor also includes an eye-saver mode, which reduces blue light.
According to Trendforce market researcher, Samsung’s monitor shipment expects a 30 percent increase this year. The company also would rank fourth in the global monitor market this year compared to its sixth rank last 2019.
The Smart Monitor would initially stack up shelves in the US, Canada, and China on November 16. However, Samsung intends to expand to other markets at the end of November.
