Samsung’s QLED TVs, which introduced the world’s first cadmium-free Quantum Dot technology, were unveiled at a First Look event in New York on March 7. The 2018 QLED TVs feature improved picture quality, design, connectivity and intelligence, creating a truly limitless TV.
To create even more stunning picture quality, the TVs feature new Direct Full Array backlighting technology that ensures that the screen is illuminated accurately. This reduces blooming and halo effects and enables deeper contrast, with inky blacks and brilliant whites. Advanced Anti-reflection technology ensures that the TVs’ spectacular picture quality can be enjoyed from almost any angle, and also helps boost contrast. Aligned with the new products, which include models wider than 75 inches, Q Engine technology automatically upscales on-screen content to UHD levels to further enhance viewers’ immersion.
Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs’ style changes based on innovative technologies are also noticeable. Ambient Mode is an energy-saving function that allows the TV to elegantly display images as well as real-time information such as the weather or news. Samsung has also introduced a simple solution to eliminate cable clutter, called the One Invisible Connection, which integrates power cables and data lines that were previously separated to allow the TVs to harmonize with their surrounding aesthetic.
Samsung’s intelligence platform, Bixby, is making its TV debut in the 2018 QLED lineup. Bixby1 allows users to use their voice to ask Bixby a question, issue a command, and activate a range of useful functions including simple controls over their TV and smart home appliances. The new QLED TVs are also designed to seamlessly connect with SmartThings-compatible devices to offer users even greater control over their home’s smart technology. In addition, the TVs’ Universal Guideservice curates content from the TV and connected sources to offer users a customized viewing experience that they can enjoy at any time.
