Back in 2018, Samsung introduced The Wall TV. Using MicroLED technology, it used a system of configurable modules that are poised to enhance the viewing experience. Thing is, it required help from professionals to install.
For 2021, Samsung is making things easier as the new MicroLED TV will now be available in a traditional TV form factor that you can just take out of the box and mount, just like any other TV. And with its 99.99% screen-to-body ratio, it should look great on a big wall with a virtually borderless design.
The new MicroLED TV comes with individually controlled pixels so color separation should be refined and detailed while aiming to deliver deep blacks and superior brightness. It also delivers a 20-bit Active Matrix glass backplane and comes equipped with the company’s MicroLED processor that promises above-average performance.
Apart from the 110-inch that the company showed off last December, there are also 99- and 88-inch models that you can choose from. They all come with a Multi-View feature that splits the screen into four separate windows, so if, for example, you have the 110-inch model, you could watch on four 55-inch screens – each with different content.
And to round up its key features, it also comes with Ambient Mode that makes its display blend in with its surroundings when the TV is not in use.
Samsung’s The Frame TV has also been updated making it more customizable while being extra slimmer. This TV that doubles as a piece of art is now just 24.9mm thin making it the series’ slimmest version yet — almost as thin as a traditional picture frame.
One of the new features is that its 43-inch model now has the capability to rotate its orientation to either landscape or portrait in case you want to display an art piece in either orientation.
As for the artwork itself, its AI-based auto curation technology should have a better understanding of your art preferences with recommendations from over 1,400 works available via a paid subscription to Samsung’s Art Store.
Of course, one of the things that make The Frame appealing is the capability to be one with your space. It can accommodate new accessory bezel options since it’s now compatible with third-party companies, giving you more flexibility to make it blend or stand out in your decor.
In addition to these new TVs, Samsung is also introducing new services and features for its current Smart TV customers. One new feature is the addition of Google Duo which uses your phone to start a high-quality, high-speed video call that up to 12 people can join regardless of the operating system they’re on. And with its screen mirroring, you can make video calls with Google Duo directly through the TV’s optional camera.
Another is Remote Access Plus which allows you to connect various devices to Samsung Smart TVs using a Samsung device. This way, it’s possible to surf the web or play games from your TV screen using a mouse, keyboard, and even your PC. You can even have access to MS Office 365 through the TV’s web browser.
We’ve mentioned the Multi-View feature that lets you watch content from different sources simultaneously. From its initial two separate sources, Samsung’s New Quantum Processor 8K makes it possible to split the views up to twelve sources. It’s free and comes in all of the company’s QLED TVs.
For those into fitness, Samsung’s Health Smart Trainer lets you turn your home TV into some sort of gym. It displays an AI trainer and yourself on the screen so you can check your posture, count your reps, and receive real-time feedback on how you perform each set. The AI trainer can also remember your exercise preference from workout type to intensity. And like your usual fitness tracker, it will log your data like calories burned and other metrics.
