Samsung announces two new monitors, one a touchscreen model

Samsung has chosen to kick off 2013 with the launch of two new high-end monitors aimed at “professionals and consumers alike”, the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor and the Series 7 SC750.

The former (pictured above) is the Korean tech company’s first multi-touch display optimized for Microsoft’s touch-centric Windows 8 operating system and features a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The 24-inch 16:9 display supports up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch allowing users to drag, rotate or select objects on the screen, while its stand offers a 60-degree tilt. It also has built-in speakers.

“Additionally, the ultra-thin bezel along with wide viewing angles provides a truly immersive viewing experience,” Samsung said in a release about the new monitor.

The 27-inch 16:9 Series 7 SC750 model (above and below) doesn’t support touch input though does have one nifty trick up its sleeve – you can rotate it 90 degrees, allowing for landscape and portrait viewing. And by that we mean the entire display can be turned 90 degrees. Of course, how often you’d be inclined to actually swing it around is another question. Like the SC770, the SC750 also has a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Both monitors will be shown off by Samsung at CES next week before hitting the market some time in the next three months. The tech giant is yet to release details regarding price.

Samsung’s new Smart Monitors bring the TV to your desk without the PC

Capitalizing on the work-from-home era that's been accelerated by the global pandemic, Samsung's new Smart Monitors are designed to help you stay entertained and productive -- all without requiring the power of a PC or desktop. These monitors can be used as a stand-alone panel for video streaming  -- similar to a living room television -- or serve as companions to smartphones and tablets for wireless casting.

While Samsung's new M5 and M7 Smart Monitors function like any other desktop monitor by allowing you to connect a compatible PC or laptop via a USB-C or HDMI cable, these panels also come with built-in Wi-Fi, which enables several new tricks to help them stand out. The M5 and M7 come with smart TV apps borrowed from Samsung's lineup of living room televisions, integrated smart assistant features, and the ability to wirelessly cast to the screen via AirPlay 2 or Samsung DeX.
