Samsung has announced two world’s first ‘Do-It-All’ monitors that support mobile and PC connectivity. The smart monitors are available in two variants, namely M5 and M7.
Samsung Smart Monitor M5 and M7 specifications
Samsung smart monitor M5 is available in two sizes, 32-inch and 27-inch. The M5 features a full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) resolution display in both size options. On the contrary, the M7 sports an ultra-high-definition (UHD) (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) resolution display. However, this smart monitor is only available in a 32-inch size. The M7 also has one USB Type-C port for 65W fast charging and quick data transfer. Not only that, but it also has three USB 2.0 ports, unlike M5, which have only two USB 2.0 ports.
Also, both the smart monitor sports a 60Hz refresh rate and 16:9 aspect ratio.
Apart from that, both the smart monitors run on Samsung’s own Tizen OS 5.5, have dual 5W built-in speakers, HDR10 standard support, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and VESA wall mounting (100mm x 100mm).
For connectivity, both the smart monitors offer Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 5 connectivity. To connect smartphone devices to the smart monitors, it can be done using Tap View, App Casting, and Apple AirPlay 2. And for the desktop experience using a smartphone, that’s when Samsung DeX comes to the rescue.
Users can also make use of Netflix, Prime, YouTube, Apple TV, and other entertainment services without a smartphone. There is also Alexa and Bixby 2.0 voice assistant support. There is also Microsoft Office 365 support that allows remote access to all the documents on PC somewhere else.
The smart monitor has an Ultrawide Game View that adjusts screen resolution to 21:9.
