The monitors support DeX, a feature that lets owners of compatible smartphones extend their device into a desktop-like experience by connecting a keyboard, mouse and monitor.

According to the announcement on the Samsung website, these new models are available:

  • 43-inch Smart Monitor M7 (model: M70A) – The flagship model sports a borderless design, 4K resolution, built-in content streaming apps, speakers and HDR10 capabilities.
  • 27 and 32-inch Smart Monitor M5 in white (model: M50A): Now available in white, these models blend in perfectly with minimalist interior designs.
  • 24-inch Smart Monitor M5 (model: M50A): The new 24-inch size brings full HD resolution and compactness, making this model ideal for those who may not have the desk space for a larger monitor.

The new monitors are powered by Samsung’s Tizen operating system.

If you haven’t heard about Tizen, the software powers Samsung’s smartwatches. Google and Samsung announced at Google I/O 2021 that the companies are merging Wear OS and Tizen into Wear, a new piece of software for wearable devices that promises to increase the performance and battery life of future Wear-based products.
