The €700 Samsung all-in-one 4K Smart Monitor is now available to pre-order

To Summarize: Samsung’s latest entry in its Smart Monitor series, the M8, is now available to preorder globally. The €700 32-inch display comes with a 4K resolution, a magnetic SlimFit camera that can be attached to the top bezel, and four iMac-style colour selections. Unfortunately, the Samsung Gaming Hub, which provides rapid access to gaming devices and streaming services, will not be accessible at launch.

Samsung debuted the M-Series Monitors in 2020 with sizes ranging from 24 to 43 inches. They combine the functionality of both a smart TV and a Monitor, including apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and Apple TV.

The Smart Monitor M8 also has an integrated SmartThings hub for controlling smart home devices. The owner of this device can connect wirelessly to a Windows PC or Mac, run Microsoft office 365 applications via a virtual machine without requiring a computer connection, and mirror smartphone content. Samsung DeX, Apple AirPlay 2, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.2, 400 nits of brightness, 2.2-channel 5-watt speakers with two tweeters, and HDR 10+ compatibility are among the features. Aspect ratio of 16:9, contrast ratio of 3,000:1, support for 1.07 billion colours, and 99 per cent coverage of the sRGB spectrum are among the other features. However, the 60Hz frame rate and 4ms response time would undoubtedly turn off gamers. A USB-C remote control, docking station, and the SlimFit camera are also included with the monitor.

There’s one micro-HDMI port and two USB-C ports—one uplink and one downlink, each capable of charging at 65 watts per hour.

Samsung is integrating its Gaming Hub into Tizen-powered 2022 Smart TV models, giving users access to game streaming services such as GeForce Now, Google Stadia, and Utomik, with more to come in the future. Gaming Hub will not be included in the Smart Monitor M8 at launch, according to the company. The Smart Monitor M8 has a starting price of $700. That’s for the white model; those who want Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue, or Spring Green will have to pay €730.
