Thursday 8 March 2018 | 10:32 CET | News
Samsung Electronics has launched its flagship line of 2018 QLED TVs and AV products at the 2018 First Look New York event at the American Stock Exchange building in Manhattan. The company unveiled its next generation of QLED TVs to about 1,000 attendees, and demonstrated new features designed to enhance the users’ TV-viewing experience. 

The exhibition in New York included the large-screen zone, which showcased the picture quality of Samsung’s new line-up with enhanced color and contrast for a variety of situations, such as gaming and watching movies or sports. Samsung also displayed its 146” The Wall, Micro LED-based modular screen, to be commercialized for home use.

The movie zone featured Samsung’s multi-dimensional N950 soundbar with Dolby Atmos, slated to become available later this year. The Ambient Mode zone showcased how the QLED TV can redefine what it means to be “off” with new capabilities designed to transform the TV into a functional screen which provides information such as news, weather and traffic, and which can also play music or blend into the wall behind it.

The new 5-meter (included with QLED TV purchase) and 15-meter (available as an option) One Invisible Connection, with power cord and data cables merged into one durable cord enable users to place the TV where they want. 

Samsung’s 2018 Smart TV set-up can also be done on the consumer’s mobile phone, via the SmartThings app. Demonstrations also illustrated how consumers can use their voices to control their entertainment and viewing with the introduction of Bixby on Samsung’s TVs.
