Samsung’s new lifestyle Smart Monitor is not your typical monitor. It is so smart that it doesn’t need your computer to play Netflix or watch YouTube. It will be available in December and here is what it does.
When you think of monitor nowadays, you might think of external monitor that extends beyond your computer screen or just duplicate it onto a larger screen.
Samsung latest lifestyle Smart Monitor can definitely do that but that’s not what the smart monitor can only do. It has built-in WiFi, BlueTooth and even Tizen OS and Samsung’s Smart Hub to play your favorite Netflix movies using your computer.
The lifestyle smart monitor comes in 2 models – M5 (27-inch, 32-inch) and M7 (32-inch). They will be available in December.

For a complete desktop experience using a mobile device, users can also connect to the monitor with Samsung DeX.

Remote Access also allows users wirelessly and remotely access files from a PC or view content from a laptop whether it is situated elsewhere in the house or at the office. The USB Type-C port allows for data, display and power — up to 65W — with just a single connection, keeping the area around the monitor clean and beautiful.
