Samsung is done hosting its second big technology event for 2021. Following the Galaxy Unpacked Event 2021, the company has now completed the Unpack and Discover event. While the former event introduced the Galaxy flagship Galaxy S21 smartphone series, the latter was a center-stage for the company’s new lineup of Micro LED’s, Lifestyle TVs, Neo QLED, monitors, projectors and soundbars. The virtual Unbox and Discover event was streamed online at the company’s official website and YouTube channel. Here’s what Samsung announced during the event:
Samsung Micro LED TV
The Samsung Micro LED technology was first introduced in the form of “The Wall”. The new generation Samsung Micro LED will now fill the rooms instead of just professional workspaces. Announced in 110-inches and 99-inches, the Micro LED will be available in the global markets starting the end of March.
There is also an 88-inch version launching this fall and a planned 76-inch version later on. The Samsung Micro LED TVs are capable of displaying up to four screens simultaneously, allowing you to watch four different content sources all at once.
In the past year, consumer interest and demand for large screen TVs has continued to grow rapidly. With the launch of the 110’’ MICRO LED, Samsung offers a breathtaking visual experience on an ultra-large next-generation TV display.
“As consumers rely on their televisions for more functions than ever, we are incredibly excited to bring the 110” MICRO LED to the commercial market,” said Jonghee Han, president of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung MICRO LED is going to redefine what premium at-home experiences mean for consumers around the world.”
Samsung Neo QLED
Amongst the different range of displays introduced by Samsung, the Neo QLED series was also launched. The company in association with AMD has developed a Freesync Premium Pro support for the Neo QLEDs. This will allow for support for both PC and console games on the TV. The device is powered by the brand’s Neo Quantum processor and Quantum Mini LEDs. These Mini LEDs are 40 times smaller than regular LEDs. This allows the device to display fine light and contrast levels. Samsung also claims that the display is capable of showing deep blacks, bright lights, and upscaling technology “smarter than any Samsung TV has ever offered”.
The Samsung Neo QLED 8K TV models include QN800A and QN900A. These variants will be available in 65-inch, 75-inch, and 85-inch panels. The Neo QLED 4K models that bear QN90A and QN85A model numbers will come in 50-inch panel size. The new range of TVs offers 4K/8K resolution support, 120fps, and a lower 5.8ms response time which is surely going to enhance the gaming experience. There is a Super Ultrawide Gameview feature from Samsung present on the new Samsung Neo QLED TV lineup. This was earlier exclusive to Samsung gaming monitors only.
Samsung Frame TV
Samsung Frame TV has been one of the most unique developments in the display segment. With a frame design suited for a wall, the TV makes up for a good home entertainment accessory. The frame also features an AI-based auto-curation technology that recommends artwork based on previous selections. Storage space on the new display is 6GB, compared to 500MB on the older 2020 model. You will now be able to store up to 1,200 UHD photos in the gallery that later can be set as wallpapers on the TV frame.
The Premiere, The Terrace and other launches
Samsung also launched The Premiere, a triple laser projector with 4K resolution for home cinema setups. The device will feature rounded edges and a minimalist design. The brand is also set to launch rollable screens later this year that are optimized for use with The Premiere.
The Terrace, on the other hand, is an outdoor television that offers high resolution outdoors, while being resistant to damage by the weather. The Terrace sports an IP55 rating to protect against water and dust. It will be available in 55-inches and 65-inches with a 75-inch model coming later this year.
