Need a pink monitor to go with that Hello Kitty-themed entertainment room you’ve been building? Samsung has just the thing with its newly announced M8 series, a lineup of smart monitors that come in a wide range of colors for users who have grown tired of the usual silver and black. Available in Warm White, Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue, and Spring Green, Samsung’s M8 displays feature a 32-inch 4K panel with 60 Hz refresh rate and 3:000:1 contrast ratio (so VA, presumably), as well as a removable camera and HDR 10+ support. They’re available for preorder on the Samsung store beginning today for $699.99.
“We aspired to create a product capable of matching the lifestyles of all kinds of people and preferences,” said Kyounghoon Kim, Executive Vice President and Head of Design Team, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “The M8’s palette of four colors was inspired by the theme ‘Shades of Nature.’ Gazing at the clear blue sky on a bright sunny day, recharging in the lush green forest, or finally bathing in the glow of a sunset,” he added.

Samsung Introduces Colorful Refresh to Smart Monitors (Samsung Newsroom)
Samsung Electronics America., Inc. today announced a colorful upgrade to its innovative Smart Monitor line with all-new M8 series that enables users to enjoy a smart TV experience, seamless workspace connectivity and video chat functionality in one “do-it-all” stylish screen. The versatile new M8 delivers Samsung’s iconic slim design in four new colors – Warm White, Sunset Pink, Daylight Blue, and Spring Green – and is available now for pre-order starting at $699.99 in 32-inches with UHD resolution and HDR10+, and includes a SlimFit Cam with face tracking and auto zoom functions.
First introduced in November 2020, Samsung’s Smart Monitors are the world’s first “do-it-all” screens designed for modern day users whose lifestyle needs include a product with both work functionality and entertainment at home. Not only does it function as a traditional monitor, the M8 also allows users to enjoy a variety of OTT services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and Apple TV via Wi-Fi without having to connect to a PC or TV. Samsung TV Plus also offers free live and on-demand content with no downloads or sign-up needed, while Universal Guide provides personalized content recommendations.
When it comes to style, the Smart Monitor M8 offers both space and work efficiency in an ultra-stylish design. The thinness of the new model is 11.4mm, about 75% slimmer than the previous models. Featuring a sophisticated flat-back design, M8’s range of colors complement any environment based on the user’s personal preferences.
