There are people who choose to use a TV as a monitor for their PCs, but there are reasons why monitors are still preferred over TVs, such as size, refresh rate, response time, and so on. However, why can’t you have the best of both worlds? That’s something that Samsung seems to think is possible with its new Samsung M7 display.
At a glance, the M7 looks like a regular computer monitor, but it is more than that. Under the hood, the M7 is powered by the Tizen operating system, meaning that even when your computer is off, it can continue to function as a smart TV of sorts, where you’ll be able to connect it to the cloud and use it to edit, view, or save your Office 365 files.
So for example if there was a document you needed to quickly view, instead of firing up your PC, you could just browse it through the monitor itself. The M7 comes with built-in connectivity like WiFi, Bluetooth, and Wireless DeX, which means that you could use a Samsung smartphone like the Note 20 and turn it into a computer.
It’s quite a crazy concept but yet somehow on paper it seems to work. There will be a couple of different models and sizes available, like the M7 which mentioned which is available in UHD at 32-inches, and the M5 with Full HD resolution and will be available in 32-inches or a slightly smaller 27-inch. The M5 will be priced starting at $230, while the M7 will go for $400.
