Samsung has used a virtual Unbox & Discover event to showcase its 2021 lineup of Micro LED, Samsung Neo QLED and Lifestyle TVs.

Samsung has claimed the number one global TV manufacturer spot for 15 consecutive years.

Certain to attract more attention this year is Micro LED. In 2018, Samsung introduced Micro LED in the form of The Wall, a configurable system of modules that can reach 292 inches for an experience like no other. With its inherent flexibility, The Wall proved a unique solution for Pro AV installers.

In 2021, Samsung will evolve Micro LED technology into a traditional TV experience. Available in 110- and 99-inch screen sizes globally from the end of March, the brand revealed it is also planning 88- and 76-inch models.

Micro LED can become 4 screens in one. With 4Vue (Quad View), consumers can watch up to four sources of content simultaneously. This might be to watch multiple sports at once,or for gaming.

This year will also see the launch of Mini LED powered Neo QLED TVs. Neo QLED screens trade the traditional LCD backlight for ultra-fine Quantum Mini LEDs. These work with Samsung’s AI-powered Neo Quantum processor to deliver intense blacks, brightest HDR and advanced upscaling. And at just 1/40th the size of conventional LEDs, Quantum Mini LEDs also allow for super slim TV designs.

Samsung Neo QLED’s 8K models (QN800A and QN900A) will be available in 65-, 75-, and 85-inch screen sizes, while the 4K models (QN94A, QN90A and QN85A) will start at 50-inches.

Gamers will appreciate their 4k 120fps connectivity and a low response time, claimed to be 5.8ms.

Samsung confirmed that it has partnered with AMD to develop the first TV with Freesync Premium Pro support for both PC and console games. Additionally, Samsung’s new Game Bar interface helps players quickly monitor critical aspects of play. You can use it to access Samsung’s Super Ultrawide Gameview, which brings ultra-wide aspect ratios, traditionally only available on gaming monitors, to the TV.

Samsung is expanding its Lifestyle TV offering in 2021, through new partnerships with NAVA Contemporary and Etsy. The Frame now has access to more original artworks to match individual tastes. A new and improved Art Store platform boasts a library of over 1,400 artworks from world-renowned institutions. This year’s Frame sets feature 16GB of storage, able to store up to 1,200 images in UHD quality.

Redesigned for 2021, The Frame is now just 24.9 millimeters thick, about the same depth as an actual picture frame. There’s also new ways to mount. A Slim Fit TV Wall Mount allows it to hang it like a real picture frame, while My Shelf, to be released globally later this year, lets users create a tailored wall with personal touches. My Shelf can be attached to the 55-, 65-, and 75-inch Frame sizes.

Also new this year is The Premiere, a triple laser UST projector with 4K resolution. The Premiere joins The Terrace, Samsung’s first outdoor TV.

The Terrace is weather-resistant, with an IP55 rating to protect against water and dust. It is also simple to install, and easy to connect to cable service and a Wi-Fi network. The Terrace is available in 55-, 65-, and 75-inch as well as the option of a IP55 weather rated matching Terrace Soundbar.
