Only some weeks after CES 2020, electronics maker Samsung has pulled again the curtain on quite a lot of new Samsung TVs coming this yr, from high-end 8K shows to still-pretty-fancy 4K QLED TVs.
We’d already caught a glimpse of the Q950TS 8K QLED on the CES expo, with its zero-bezel show and extremely spectacular sound system. We now know the names of the opposite two 8K QLEDs coming alongside it: the Q900TS and Q800T.
Given the Q950TS is the flagship set for 2020, the opposite 8K shows will probably function a less-advanced speaker array (say, OTS reasonably than the premium OTS+ audio know-how). They’ll additionally vary in measurement from 55-inch to 98-inch screens, reasonably than the Q950TS’s 65-inch, 75-inch, and 85-inch fashions.
However that’s not all: Samsung additionally introduced the 5 4K TVs with QLED panels coming this yr, together with the “Q60T, Q70T, Q80T, Q90T and Q95T fashions”, going as giant as 85-inches and as small as 43-inches.
Samsung calls this its “strongest QLED 4K line-up but”, although we don’t know sufficient about specs to know precisely what’s been improved on from final yr.
Straight from the faucet
Maybe probably the most notable announcement, although, is the Faucet View function we first obtained hints about again in December 2019, when a trademark from Samsung for a brand new casting operate for its TVs got here to gentle.
Faucet View is a one-step technique to mirror your telephone display screen to a Samsung TV, by merely tapping your smartphone in opposition to the display screen: “Faucet View makes it simpler than ever to attach smartphones to the TV. Customers can now mirror their telephone display screen to the TV by merely touching the 2 units collectively.”
Excited? Properly, we’re instructed that this operate will solely be accessible “utilizing a appropriate smartphone”, which most likely means sure Samsung telephones.
We noticed an analogous function with the Samsung Sero TV – additionally out this yr – which rotates 90 levels when you make a twisting motion with a related Samsung Galaxy Be aware 10 handset. There’s additionally a distant, or Samsung SmartThings app you should use, however the telephone appears to be like just like the smoothest technique to do it.
This yr’s lineup of Samsung TVs remains to be missing in particulars, however it’s now coming somewhat clearer into focus.
