The pandemic has irreversibly changed the reality of millions of people around the world, including the way we work and rest. Today, the house has become the center of our lives. Samsung has responded to the challenges of new times. From the monitor, which until now was only an element of the computer, he created a device that can replace several others, and at the same time is perfect for professional tasks, as well as for learning and entertainment. The Korean manufacturer has read our needs so well that the worldwide sale of devices from the Smart Monitor series, including the M8 model, has already exceeded one million units.

When the pandemic hit, many companies switched to remote working. It wasn’t just a necessity – a need to contain the spread of the virus. This gave employees and their families a sense of security in the then uncertain reality. Over time, however, we began to see how unprepared we were for such a change. Households began to suffer from the lack of large screens in their apartments during long hours of work and distance learning. We realized that smartphones, which initially seemed to save the day, are not the long-term solution. At the same time, we often didn’t have room to add other large monitors to the room, and sometimes we just didn’t want them to disrupt the space. The designers of the Samsung brand understood that universal devices that perform several functions at once are needed. They have developed the Smart Monitor series – devices that go beyond a traditional monitor and can become the center of work, entertainment and learning.

Smart Monitor M8: design matters

The first thing that charms the 32-inch M8 model is its elegant and innovative design. The minimalist design fits perfectly into any modern space. Extremely thin, its case is only 11.4 mm, and equipped with a flat back (called flat back), it impresses with the iconic and thin design characteristic of the brand’s products. To ensure that the monitor allows the user to find the perfect position in any situation – whether during work, video conferencing or filming – it is equipped with a HAS base, which allows you to adjust not only the height, but also the angle of inclination.

The designers of the brand deserve one more praise. The M8 model is available in four pastel colors: warm white, pink, blue and green. It’s a stylish alternative to traditional black that can be overwhelming.

Home office from the M8

The M8 model belongs to the line of monitors that have “smart” in their name for a reason. The screen combines the functions of several devices that meet the needs of the pandemic reality. One of them is the most comfortable working from home.

The Samsung monitor allows a wireless connection with a computer, so we can use it from any place in the room that suits us best, without thinking that we are limited by the length of the cable. M8 is a self-contained workspace – it has an integrated web browser and access to the Microsoft 365 package, which allows you to work, among other things. in Word or Excel without a computer. In addition, the screen is equipped with adaptive image technology, which automatically adjusts brightness and color temperature, which significantly increases working comfort.

Remote work is often associated with video conferencing – and designers have thought about that too. You can use Google Duo to make video calls effortlessly. Another user-friendly solution is the SlimFit camera that comes with the M8. It is wireless and can be connected to the monitor using magnets. Interestingly, it has a face tracking function and automatic zoom, so that during conferences or live streaming when we are on the move, it will follow us and always place us in the center of the frame.

Entertainment center: Smart Monitor M8 is also a TV

The Samsung Smart Monitor M8 is, in addition to a practical work tool, also an entertainment center. The device has an integrated Smart TV module, thanks to which we can use the most popular streaming platforms, such as Netflix or Apple TV, and VoD applications such as YouTube. And it’s one-touch, because with the M8 we get a remote control with buttons with selected services. In addition, without subscription costs, we have access to Samsung TV Plus and Universal Guide, which will select content from broadcast and streaming channels according to our interests.

What about the picture? The M8 displays it in Ultra HD quality, and the higher pixel count improves detail in videos and photos. A wide color gamut (a trillion!) gives them better reproduction, and the depth is reflected in HDR 10+ technology.

The sound is at an equally high level, and in order to provide the best entertainment, it adapts to various situations – from speech, to ambient noise, to music. And all this in the built-in speakers.

You are responsible here

That’s still not all the M8 has to offer. Since the monitor has an integrated SmartThings module, the user can not only wirelessly connect all their IoT devices to it, including light switches and sockets, but also control them (e.g. turn off the light ). Interestingly, these functions are available even with the monitor turned off, which, by the way, can also be activated by voice.

Samsung has fully understood the needs of a changing world and has come up with a device that will work well for work, making it even easier, and for fun – movies and series in Ultra HD quality – and for learning and managing a home smart. He created a smart monitor for new times.
