Product Overview

M5 32M50A is one of the first Smart Monitors launched by Samsung that expands the connectivity options for PCs and smartphones beyond conventional monitors. It also features smart-TV-level operating system that allows the monitor to stream video directly without a second device.
The 32-inch M5 32M50A shares all the design elements and most of the feature set with the M7 32M70A smart monitor, such as WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, Tizen operating system, and integrated speakers. It differs in having a lower, FHD resolution, and in dropping USB-C charging support for your smart devices. The M5 32M50A is practically a Samsung smart TV minus the internal tuner.
Samsung also markets 24- and 27-inch variants of the M5 that are virtually identical to the 32M50A but for the dimensions.
In 2021, Samsung introduced a white version of the same monitor.
