Samsung has announced that its popular Smart Monitor M8 is getting an update for 2023.

9to5Mac’s Take

As I’ve written before, the 2022 Samsung Smart Monitor M8 is a compelling package for those that want a 4K resolution, USB-C, and a large screen at an affordable price point.

Overall, the 2023 build doesn’t look much different spec-wise. It would have been nice to see Samsung up the pass-through power from 65W to something like 90W or higher. But all-in-all it remains a great value at $699.99 for a 4K 32-inch monitor with USB-C.

Something to keep in mind, if HDR 10+ and portrait orientation aren’t important to you, the 2022 Smart Monitor M8 at a discount may be a great move.

The 2023 versions of the M8, M7, and M5 will land in June, stay tuned as we’ll have coverage as soon as they do.
