Samsung had launched the Smart Monitor lineup last year after the COVID-19 pandemic. The new monitor lineup is targeted towards those who work from their homes and want a display that can double up as a TV. Smart Monitors are smarter than regular PC monitors and feature a smart TV-like operating system and expansive connectivity features.
The South Korean firm has now announced that the launch of the Smart Monitor lineup has been a huge success. The company has managed to sell over 600,000 units of Smart Monitors globally within a year of the launch. The new monitors have received positive ratings from experts and consumers alike. There are a total of six models in the Smart Monitor lineup, ranging from 27 inches to 43 inches.
Smart Monitors run Samsung’s Tizen OS and feature all the popular music and video streaming apps like Apple Music, Disney+, Netflix, Prime Video, Spotify, and YouTube. They feature Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wireless Dex, and a USB 3.0 hub. The monitors even come with a remote controller that lets you easily navigate around the UI. Other features include Bixby and built-in stereo speakers.
Hye-Seung Ha, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, “Samsung Smart Monitor is an innovative product that has completely positioned itself as a new category in the ‘home life’ era.”
