If there was anything we were wary of in our Samsung M8 Smart Monitor review, it was the unit’s rather large 32-inch screen size. That’s great for a small TV, but some will it find too big as a pure computer monitor. Samsung must’ve heard us (and others) and will soon offering a smaller 27-inch version for 2023. It too will be 4K UHD, so likely with a smaller, more retina-like dot pitch. Good on ya’ Samsung.
Other improvements include the ability to pivot the display into portrait mode for long documents, and it has a higher-resolution webcam than its predecessor. Mouse/keyboard control are also now possible. If you’re not familiar with the breed, a smart monitor is a computer monitor with a Smart TV user interface. In this case, you also get Samsung’s SmartHome, along with its SmartThings IoT user interface. The SmartHome Gaming hub is also featured.
