Samsung Smart Monitor M8 – a new smart screen that combines the functionality of a monitor, Smart TV, remote office and smart home control center – has started sales in Ukraine. To understand in more detail all the features of the model, we have collected the top 10 features that it can offer to users.
1. Design for any interior
Smart Monitor M8 has thin bezels around the screen and an elegant height-adjustable stand. The monitor fits perfectly into any interior and saves space on your desk, thanks to the thickness of only 11.4 mm, which is three quarters thinner than its predecessor.
2. Large high-quality screen with HDR10+
Smart Monitor M8 offers a large 32-inch screen that is great for viewing and creating content thanks to the VA-matrix with a resolution of 4K (3840×2160 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 16:9. Thanks to a maximum brightness of 400 nits and a contrast of 3000:1, the display supports the latest HDR10+ standard for high-quality display of the picture simultaneously with bright and dark areas.
The ability of the Smart Monitor M8 display matrix to output 1.07 billion colors and cover 99% of the sRGB color space allows you to comfortably use the monitor not only for working with documents or watching movies, but also for editing photos and videos. This is also facilitated by the very wide viewing angles of the screen, which reach 178° both vertically and horizontally. And if you want to take a break from work tasks, the response time of the matrix is only 4 ms and the large diagonal will allow you to immerse yourself in the battles of the most modern games.
3. TV with Smart TV
The monitor received the full functionality of a TV with Smart TV, which allows you to quickly switch to watching a series or movie through your favorite streaming service after a working day. And it does not require the Smart Monitor M8 to be connected to a PC or laptop and continue to display notifications on the desktop.
You also don’t need a separate TV set-top box, everything you need is already in the monitor itself, including a complete remote control.
4. USB Type-C for connection and charging
Smart Monitor M8 saves space on the desk not only thanks to its elegant design, but also by minimizing the number of wires. USB Type-C support allows you to connect a compatible laptop to the monitor with just one cable, which can also be used for charging up to 65W. It is very convenient, because it does not require adapters or additional devices.
5. SlimFit camera for video calls
Smart Monitor M8 comes with a SlimFit camera that allows you to use your favorite video calling app like Google Duo directly from the monitor without connecting a PC, laptop or other devices.
SlimFit tilt can be adjusted to create the perfect viewing angle during a video call, and Face Tracking automatically keeps your image centered on the screen while AutoZoom focuses on your face ensuring that your interlocutors see you clearly.
For privacy, the camera lens can be covered with the included lens cap, but is also very easy to detach completely from the monitor for maximum privacy.
6. Wireless and Samsung DeX
It’s hard to imagine your life without wireless technology these days and the Smart Monitor M8 offers the best of it. Thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi, you can output images from your Windows or Mac computer to the monitor. And the built-in NFC module allows you to start broadcasting the smartphone screen with just one touch to the side frame of the case. Moreover, on the SmartMonitor M8, you can simultaneously display any application from a smartphone, and another image next to it, for example, watch a TV series.
AirPlay support provides a simple and fast connection to the monitor of Apple devices with the ability to broadcast any content to it. Watch your favorite content from iPhone, iPad and Mac on the Smart Monitor M8 or even mirror apps, documents and websites.
Owners of Galaxy smartphones and tablets with Samsung DeX support can wirelessly display a desktop with applications on the monitor screen, turning the Smart Monitor M8 into a personal computer.
7. Workmode with Microsoft 365 programs
Even if you don’t have a laptop or smartphone with Samsung DeX at hand, the Smart Monitor M8 from Samsung will not leave you without an opportunity to check work mail or edit documents or make a presentation. The monitor supports the direct connection of wireless keyboards and mice, and running on the Tizen operating system provides access to Microsoft 365 cloud services. This means that you can connect to your Outlook, start a meeting in Teams or a call in Skype, add and edit notes in OneNone, view your files in OneDrive and, of course, edit documents, tables and presentations in Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
8. Smart Monitor M8 is a hub for a smart home
The wireless capabilities of the Smart Monitor M8 and support for the SmartThings application from Samsung allow you to turn the monitor into a real smart home control center. Without distracting yourself from the screen, you can change the lighting in the house, adjust the temperature and control other smart devices at home.
9. Adaptive Sound+
The monitor has built-in 2.2-channel speakers that provide rich and realistic sound thanks to the updated Adaptive Sound+ system, which adjusts the sound by analyzing the type of content and the level of noise around you. Adapting in real time, this technology provides a clear individual sound.
10. Quick settings for games
During active gaming sessions, no one wants to go into the settings menu and adjust the image for a long time. Samsung thought about this and added to the Smart Monitor M8 quick options that allow instantly check and change response time, screen aspect ratio, and in-game picture mode. In this way, you can change the desired parameters without closing the game screen.
