Samsung hosted its Unbox and Discover virtual event to showcase its 2021 range of video and audio products. It brought new models of TVs, including micro-LED TVs, Samsung Neo QLED TVs, and lifestyle TVs. Starting with micro-LED options, Samsung will offer 110-inch and 99-inch models worldwide from the end of this month. There will also be an 88-inch model this fall, along with a 76-inch option planned for later. Samsung’s micro LED TVs are equipped with 4Vue (Quad View) technology, which allows users to view content from up to four different sources at the same time.
The South Korean electronics giant introduced micro-LED technology for the first time in 2018 with its modular screens that could be combined into one large display. Now Samsung is making micro LED technology more commercial.
There will also be new Samsung Neo QLED TV and QLED TV models that use Quantum mini LED displays and the Samsung Neo Quantum processor. Samsung has renewed its partnership with Xbox in the US and Canada to provide an enhanced gaming experience with 4K resolution and 120 fps support. These TV models have a claimed response time of 5.8 ms. Samsung has also partnered with AMD to add Freesync Premium Pro to its Neo QLED and QLED range. There are new additions to the Samsung Health program as well as the Smart Trainer, which uses AI to analyze posture and provide feedback in real time. The 2021 range of Neo QLED TV and QLED TV includes 8K models QN800A and QN900A, which are offered in sizes 65 “, 75” and 85 “. The 4K QN90A and QN85A models start at 50 inches.
Samsung’s The Frame TV is also getting some upgrades for 2021. It comes with 6GB of storage instead of 500MB, and the company has partnered with NAVA Contemporary and Etsy to get more original artwork. The TV is now slimmer at just 24.9 mm and has new mounting options with a slim fit wall bracket. My Shelf is a new background option for The Frame TV that will be available later in the year for the 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch options.
At the event, Samsung announced a new 4K triple laser projector called The Premiere, which has a “minimalist design” and will be a short throw projector that can be placed about 5 inches or more from a wall or screen. Samsung has also upgraded its outdoor TV The Terrace with an IP55 rating and will have a 75-inch full-sun model that will be unveiled this summer.
For monitors, Samsung brings its Smart Monitor, which offers functions such as Wireless DeX and Apple AirPlay 2 and does not require a PC connection. It also comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to allow streaming right on the monitor. The Odyssey G9 gaming monitor has also been updated with a Quantum mini LED display and 1000R screen curvature. The Samsung Interactive Display FLIP 75-inch is a 4K display that supports touch input. The 75-inch model is the latest addition to the product range, which already includes 55-inch, 65-inch and 85-inch variants.
In terms of audio, Samsung has also updated its Q-Series 2021 line, which features Q-Symphony technology that works with supported Samsung TV models for the best experience. The new Q950A soundbar, which is likely to be the top-of-the-line option, offers 11.1.4 channel audio, Tap Sound connectivity, and support for multiple voice assistants, including Amazon Alexa and Bixby.
