Samsung has launched a 43-inch version of its multifunctional smart display
Samsung announced the launch of two new models, expanding its all-in-one smart display series. In addition to the 27-inch and 32-inch models launched at the end of last year, it now also offers 43-inch 4K M7 and 24-inch 1080p M5, filling the top and bottom of the series.
As before, the new models are designed for both productivity and entertainment. To that end, they have built-in speakers and smart TV functionality powered by Samsung's Tizen OS, letting you run streaming apps like Netflix without the need to power on your computer. At the same time, you can connect your Galaxy smartphone via DeX, letting you use it as a desktop "computer." The M7 includes a solar-powered remote, but both models offer Alexa, Google Assistant and Bixby voice control.
Samsung also promised the ability to support the HDR10 43-inch 4K version, although it did not mention any DisplayHDR specifications, so it may not be able to provide the minimum required 400 nits. Other features of this model include ultra-thin bezels and a USB Type C port. Samsung stated that the target customer for this 24-inch 1080p M5 model is "looking for a multi-function display with good value for money." It did not announce any pricing, but the current 27-inch M5 and 32-inch M7 models are $230 and $400, respectively.
