Samsung Details Pricing & Availability for 2018 QLED 4K Ultra HD TV Lineup

Samsung Details Pricing & Availability for 2018 QLED 4K Ultra HD TV Lineup

Which brings us to another piece of news: Samsung's partnership with the New York Times, as announced by Mark Thompson (ex- of the BBC), to push news onto QLED series TVs. Scott Cohen is the National Product Training Manager for Samsung and joins Cheddar to explain these new innovations.

The new QLED, like the Samsung Frame, can also display art.

The other feature Samsung seems keen to talk about across the range is Ambient Mode, a feature that gives your TV into a sort of "active off" mode, able to detect the colour or pattern of the wall behind, switching its set to render just like it, and producing something that matches, not just a black screen.

The company also highlighted its modular design - which Samsung first touted this year at CES 2018 with The Wall and available finally later this year -which means TVs can be shaped in nearly any dimension needed, with each component, or screen, powered through micro LED technology.

The feature attempts to make the TV look transparent by using a color and brightness matching process, displaying the same color or pattern shown on the wall behind it, CNN noted.

Samsung QLED vs. LG OLED TV: What's the difference? But that's not really the point-the mode is just meant to give the illusion of invisibility between watching TV, and when you want to show off your new television to a visitor. The Ambient Mode is certainly a nod towards that trend.

"This year we continue to bring incredible picture quality, enhanced smart capabilities and design that make Samsung TVs a ideal fit for the styles, viewing habits, and connected lifestyles of Australians".

It's unclear what the TVs will be priced at, but Samsung says they'll become available for purchase in the next few weeks. The Frame reverted to what looked like a framed artwork when not in use.

Samsung also announced new audio products.

To simplify the installation of the modern TV Samsung is introducing what they call the "one invisible connection" - a single super-thin cable which connects from your TV all the way down to your entertainment unit where your set top boxes, DVD player or games console might be and supplies both the picture from those devices, your antenna for live TV and power - through a single cable.

The thin cord then connects to an external input box.

Also, because they five off color, there's no more need for filters - at least that's the promise. Essentially they don't want them to ever be truly powered off.

Like a year ago, Samsung is continuing the work it made with QLED technology, a quantum-dot refined generation of LED-backlit TVs where small crystals are used to focus and hone the colours emitted by the LED. Samsung says Bixby mobile control will be available to the Galaxy S8 and greater handsets in certain countries; as well, the Smart TV Bixby service only supports English, Mandarin, and Korean.

Most recently, Samsung showed off a 146-inch TV called the Wall in January. For instance, while the Apple TV can talk to a Samsung television, can Bixby talk to Apple TV's content library, or would Siri still be the way to go?
