Samsung unveiled part of its 2021 TV lineup in January, including micro-LED and Neo QLED offerings. Today’s Unbox & Discover event brought even more designs, some for the artistic crowd and others for your back porch.
Samsung introduced its first micro-LED TV in 2018 – the gigantic 146-inch (or larger, depending on configuration) TV dubbed The Wall. Now that the technology has matured, the company has prepared three models that are more suitable for your average home.
Two micro-LED televisions – 110 “and 99” – will be launched globally at the end of March, followed by a smaller 88 “model in the fall. A (not really) tiny 76-inch model is also on the cards, but there is no concrete launch schedule.
Micro-LED TVs feature 4Vue (quad view), which allows them to function as four smaller TVs displaying content from four independent sources simultaneously.
Samsung has divided its Neo QLED line into two series: 8K models (QN800A and QN900A) and 4K models (QN90A and QN85A). The 8Ks will be available in 85 ”, 75” and 65 ”and will cost you between $ 5,000 and $ 9,000. 4Ks will start at 50 inches and range from $ 1,600 to $ 5,000.
Microsoft has chosen Samsung as the official TV partner for Xbox Series X in the United States and Canada. To this end, Samsung worked with AMD to create the first TVs that supported Freesync Premium Pro for consoles and PCs. Neo QLED TVs can operate at 120 fps with a response time of 5.8 ms.
Super Ultrawide Gameview mode places the TV in an ultra-wide aspect ratio similar to a gaming monitor. If you need finer control, the Game Bar feature will allow you to adjust the aspect ratio, check input lag, connect wireless headphones and more.
Besides games, Samsung sees these TVs as exercise tools too – the Smart Trainer can use an optional camera (and AI) to analyze your posture and provide real-time feedback while following instructional videos.
By the way, a few months ago Microsoft said that LG TVs were the best way to experience HDR games on the Xbox Series X.
The Frame TV has been improved. This artistic model is perched on an easel, but with the 2021 version you can use the Slim Fit wall mount (with five bezel options) to hang it like a painting.
Speaking of which, the new model has 6GB of storage for images (down from 0.5GB), which allows it to store 1,200 photos in UHD quality. Samsung has partnered with NAVA Contemporary, Etsy, and others to offer a growing library of over 1,400 works of art that you can view on The Frame. An AI will learn what kind of art you like and offer you suggestions.
The Terrace is Samsung’s first outdoor TV. It is weatherproof with an IP55 rating to protect it against water and dust. It is available in 55 “and 65” sizes, plus the 75 “Full Sun model (intended for use in full sun, it contains a brighter panel).
The first one
Not a TV, but the industry’s first triple laser projector with 4K resolution. It has a minimalist design with rounded edges and a fabric exterior and it should be only 5 ”from the wall. Samsung will offer roll-up screens for The Premiere later this year.
The Samsung Interactive Display FLIP 75 ”is a digital whiteboard. It can be used in offices and classrooms by students or teams of up to 20 people. Previously, Samsung offered models of 85 ”, 65” and 55 ”.
Samsung has unveiled the 2021 line of Q Series soundbars with Q-Symphony technology. The Q950A is the industry’s first 11.1.4-channel system and promises to deliver exceptional three-dimensional sound. It also supports voice assistants including Amazon Alexa and Samsung’s Bixby.
