At CES, samsung has introduced an upgraded version of its well-received 32-inch Smart Monitor. This latest model retains the iMac-like design of its predecessor and comes with notable features, including a 4K resolution, single-cable USB-C connectivity, AirPlay 2 support, and more.
As previously highlighted, the Samsung Smart Monitor provides an attractive option for users seeking a combination of 4K resolution, USB-C connectivity, and a sizable screen at an affordable price. The design is reminiscent of the iMac, and the monitor is available in four different color options.
While the Samsung Smart Monitor may not offer premium features such as DCI-P3 support, a 120Hz refresh rate, Thunderbolt connectivity, or a metal build, it provides a substantial set of features for its price point.
