Samsung’s new monitor has an integrated pop-up webcam and is fully focused on teleworking

Samsung has just announced a new and peculiar monitor focused on teleworking: the Samsung Webcam Monitor S4. As its name slides, it is a monitor that, among other things, stands out for incorporating a webcam. It is located in the lower frame and the most curious thing is that it has a mecanismo pop-up so that we hide it when we don’t want to use it.

The device is available now in the United States, Europe, South Korea and Southeast Asia. Its price is 380,000 KRW, which at the change is about 275 euros. Once the presentations are made, let’s get to know him a little better.

Samsung Webcam Monitor S4

The Samsung Webcam Monitor S4 is in appearance similar to a conventional monitor. It has relatively restrained frames, except for the lower one, and a height and tilt adjustable stand. Spread throughout the chassis there are a good number of ports whose objective is to turn the monitor into a kind of hub.

But beyond that, the most striking thing is the webcam. It is integrated into the upper frame itself and unfolds when you click on it. It has two megapixels of resolution and records in FullHD. How could it be otherwise, the monitor also has a built-in microphone and stereo speakers (two of two watts each).

It should be noted that the webcam is not alone, but arrives accompanied by a infrared sensor compatible with Windows Hello. This will allow us to “unlock the computer in two seconds” and use the face as an authentication method on websites and apps.
