Samsung introduced the M8 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the start of the year, along with many other monitors. The M8 comes as the newest addition to Samsung’s line of Smart monitors. With a 32-inch display, the design somewhat resembles an Apple product. Samsung has already started taking pre orders at $699.99.
It is being compared to the iMac because of the choice of colors and the design but it is noteworthy, that, unlike the iMac, the M8 is not an all-in-one PC. Apple has recently announced the 5K Studio Display and we think it has more in common with the M8 since both of these are serving only the purpose of monitors. However, they have extra features which make them more than just displays.
Moving on the specifications, the M8 comes with a 32-inch flat panel with a 4K (3840×2160) resolution. It has a refresh rate of 60Hz, and a response time of 4 milliseconds. With up to 400 bits of brightness, it can easily support HDR content (10+). It also has a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color space, a micro HDMI port, two USB-C ports (one up and one down) with 65W charging, dual 5W speakers, and both Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless connectivity.
For those interested to buy, there are four different color options white, green, pink, and blue. The basic white model costs $699.99 and all other colors are priced at $729.99.
