Samsung intros new display products

New large format display products for the home include 76-inch MicroLED TV and a "full sun" version of The Terrace

March 2, 2021–Today at Samsung’s Unbox and Discover virtual event, the company hit their new home entertainment products, some of which could also see life in commercial. Many had already been announced at CES — including the Neo QLED TVs, a slimmer version of The Frame art TV, a solar-powered remote, a game status screenan AI-based personal trainer and new soundbars — but there were a few new announcements.

As CNET reported today here are some of the highlights:

A new size of MicroLED TV, 76 inches, will debut “in the future”. It will be the smallest size yet, coming in below the 88-, 99- and 110-inch dimensions already announced. MicroLED is Samsung’s highest-end, most expensive television. The company plans to announce pricing closer to April, when its 110-inch MicroLED goes on sale in the US. For a ballpark, that TV sells for the equivalent of $156,000 in Korea.

A new dedicated TikTok app is already available in the UK and coming to the US soon. On most TVs TikTok’s vertical (portrait mode) video will be displayed with fill-in bars to either side. On Samsung’s controversial The Sero, which can rotate between landscape and portrait modes using a built-in motor, it can display it without bars. The same goes for 32- and 43-inch versions of The Frame, which can be set up in portrait mode, too. A new AirPlay integration for Sero that enables iPhones to automatically rotate it between portrait mode and landscape when you flip your phone. The feature was already available for Android phones.

The Samsung Sero is so weird — why are it’s speakers so good?

A new accessory for The Frame, Samsung’s TV designed to mimic wall art, called My Shelf. It’s a custom, well, shelf, designed specifically for the TV, with customizable panels to fit the wall space. It’s available in beige, white, brown and black and works with the 55-, 65- and 75-inch sizes. The company also revealed that internal storage on The Frame 2021 will be 6GB, “allowing for storage of ~1,200 ultra hi-res images.” Earlier versions had 500MB.

A new “full sun” 75-inch version of The Terrace outdoor TV, coming this summer. Details weren’t available by press time, but it’s safe to assume it will be brighter and/or employ improved antiglare screen material.

Samsung’s Smart Monitor, a work-and-play model which it announced in November 2020, is now available. Its smarts include built-in connectivity so you can work or school from the cloud without the need for a separate PC, as well TV features so you can seamlessly move into the entertainment portion of your day.
