Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor – a new type of display

Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor

What, you ask is a Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor? Well, it is a monitor with brains that allows it to do many things without a connected PC, laptop, Android or Mac. In many cases it may be all a smart person needs!

Samsung calls the Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor the World’s 1st Do-It-All Screen.

For example, a Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor can remote connect to Microsoft 365 and OneDrive or remote connect to another computer at home or in the office. Or it has a Smart Hub and a comprehensive entertainment hub, similar to Samsung’s built-in Smart TV platform.  

The Samsung Smart Monitor keeps-up with the evolving way that we need our technology to perform in our homes. People no longer have to choose between a screen for work and learning and another for enjoying TV, movies and more. Using the M7 and M5 Smart Monitors you can get work done without a PC using Microsoft Office 365, remote access or via DeX, then switch to entertainment with the on-board Smart Hub that comes with your favourite streaming services.”

GadgetGuy’s take

Smart or dumb? Will the Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitor range sell?

Before we get carried away with the concept, Samsung Lifestyle Smart Monitors can also connect to a computing device that can do pretty well everything and more than it does. So, the proof of market acceptance will be if the price difference between a smart and dumb monitor is not too large.

Surprisingly that difference is not much so it then comes down to use cases. I suspect that given it’s a Samsung quality VA panel and with stereo speakers, they should be on to a winner.
