Samsung 2023 Smart Monitors features & specifications
The new models will be available in 32-inch and 27-inch variants, but they will support different features – resolution, brightness, and color options. The lineup consists of nine versatile monitors designed to cater to a wide range of users’ needs and styles. The Samsung M8 and M7 models are available in 32-inch sizes, while the M5 model is available in both 32-inch and 27-inch sizes.
The M8, featuring UHD resolution and 400nit brightness, sports attractive color choices such as Warm White, Daylight Blue, Sunset Pink, and Spring Green. The M7 has a UHD resolution and 300nit brightness, is available in Warm White, while the M5, offers a Full HD resolution and comes in sleek Black or White.
On the M8 and M7 models, Samsung has introduced an Iconic Slim Design, boasting a notably slim profile of 11.39mm at the thinnest point. The monitors also feature an organic herringbone pattern on the back, which enhances both the monitor’s appearance and overall room aesthetic.
The Samsung M8 monitor arrives with a height-adjustable stand with tilt support, allowing users to customize the angle and create a clutter-free workspace. Additionally, you can pivot the monitor up to 90 degrees, significantly reducing scrolling fatigue when handling lengthy files.
The 2023 Smart Monitor M8 has undergone remarkable upgrades, and the result is a sleek monitor with a robust smart entertainment experience. Highlight features here include a 4K resolution, HDR 10+, and 400nit brightness that enable the M8 to deliver stunning and vibrant visuals at all levels.
On these monitors, users can access the Samsung Gaming Hub, a comprehensive streaming platform, as well as services like Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube through the Smart Hub. Both the M8 and M7 models support color coverage of up to 99% sRGB, which delivers content in true-to-life, brilliant colors; making them ideal for designers and creators.
The 2023 lineup has been optimized for seamless and efficient remote work, offering enhanced wireless connection and mirroring with PCs. The monitors incorporate a magnetic and removable camera, allowing for wireless connectivity without the need for additional purchases. The SlimFit camera supports FHD resolution and video conferencing capabilities, too.
To enhance the user interface, mouse and keyboard control have been added to several apps, including SmartThings and Smart Hub. Users can now enjoy full control while exploring their favorite content without relying on a remote.
The new Smart Monitors come with personalized features, including a built-in IoT Hub supporting Zigbee and Thread protocols, allowing users to control their in-home IoT devices from a single monitor. The M8 and M7 models include built-in voice assistants such as Bixby and Amazon Alexa, enabling users to control the monitor using voice commands. Far-field voice recognition is supported, thanks to the built-in microphone in the M8 and M7 models, allowing users to communicate directly with the monitor.
As in previous years, the 2023 Samsung Smart Monitors seem to be aiming at being a jack of all trades, and master of none. With that 60Hz refresh rates, these monitors aren’t going to compete with premium gaming monitors like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, and the small sizes and limited port options will give most TV buyers a pause. But if you’re tight on space and need a single screen to do it all, the 2023 Samsung Smart monitors are serious box tickers.
