Samsung’s Smart Monitor range is expanding. The company’s Tizen-powered smart computer display now includes a 43-inch 4K M7 model as well as a 24-inch 1080p M5, marking the largest and smallest smart monitors ever made available.
Samsung introduced the Smart Monitor last year and described it as a “do-it-all” display designed for both work and entertainment. The screen features built-in speaker and smart TV functionality via Samsung’s Tizen platform, meaning you can play video apps like Netflix directly on the device, as well as remote desktop access and productivity software such as Office 365.
Smart monitors have a remote control. Alexa works with Google Assistant and Bixby, and also has wireless support for DX, Samsung’s desktop-style environment that runs on Galaxy smartphones.
The M7 Series now consists of 43-inch and 32-inch 4K options. The M5 series uses 1080p panels and comes in 24-inch, 27-inch and 32-inch sizes. Samsung is also offering a white version of the 27-inch and 32-inch M5 smart monitor.
Samsung has yet to announce pricing for the new models, but for reference, the 32-inch M7 was released at $ 399.99, while the 27-inch M5 was $ 229.99, so you’re probably off those two extremes. One can expect slightly up and down prices.
