Samsung Electronics today announced its latest series of smart monitors, the M8, featuring an improved and sleek design. The versatile new M8 offers Samsung’s signature slim design in four new colors – Warm White, Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue and Spring Green – available in 32-inch with UHD resolution and SlimFit Cam.

First launched in November 2020, Samsung’s Smart Monitor series is a family of the world’s first all-purpose displays designed for modern users who demand a product that delivers both functionality and home entertainment. Not only being a traditional monitor, but the M8 also allows users to enjoy a variety of OTT services,1 including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and Apple TV over Wi-Fi without having to connect to a PC or TV.

When it comes to style, the Smart Monitor M8 offers both space and work efficiency in an ultra-sleek design. The thinness of the new model is 11.4 mm, which is about three quarters thinner than the previous models.

Featuring a sophisticated flat-back design, the M8’s color gamut expanding to a sleek warm white complements any environment depending on the user’s personal preference.

“We aspired to create a product that could match the lifestyles of all kinds of people and preferences,” said Kyounghoon Kim, Executive Vice President and Design Team Leader, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “The M8’s color palette of four different colors was inspired by the ‘Shades of Nature’ theme. Contemplating the clear blue sky on a beautiful sunny day, recharging one’s batteries in the verdant forest or finally bathing in the glow of a sunset,” he added.

When it comes to productivity, the Smart Monitor M8 has it all. The M8 provides a perfect home office environment without using a PC by connecting to various computing devices through the upgraded Smart Hub. The Workspace UI offers all the services needed to work on a single screen, helping users connect wirelessly to a Windows or Mac PC and efficiently use a wide range of useful features, including Samsung DeX , Apple AirPlay 2 and Microsoft 3652 cloud service, as well as mirroring content from the smartphone to the M8.

On top of that, the Smart Monitor M8 has a magnetic and detachable SlimFit Cam that can attach to the monitor while keeping the desk space clean without any unsightly wires. The SlimFit Cam also features face tracking and auto zoom, quickly identifying a person’s face when they’re on screen and automatically focusing on the subject. In other words, it can track and capture an individual speaker, a perfect option for active presentation or live streaming. Additionally, the monitor supports video chat apps such as Google Duo, allowing users to work remotely or participate in video conferences at home or at work using the SlimFit Cam.

The Smart Monitor M8 has an IoT hub called SmartThings Hub, where users can connect all their IoT devices wirelessly.

Equipped with a high-sensitivity Far Field Voice microphone, the assistant controls devices such as Bixby and Amazon Alexa4 using voice commands. Additionally, the microphone uses an Always On Voice feature, displaying conversation information on the screen when Bixby is activated, even if the monitor screen is off.

To go along with the monitor’s wide range of features, the screen offers adaptive picture technology, enhancing viewer comfort by automatically adjusting screen brightness and color temperature. The M8 also includes a height-adjustable stand (HAS) and tilt functionality, allowing users to find the perfect position for every project, movie night, or study session.
