Samsung has just revealed its 2021 lineup of MICRO LED, Samsung Neo QLED, lifestyle TVs, monitors, and soundbars at its virtual Unbox & Discover event. As people spend more time at home, Samsung’s latest innovations let consumers get the most from their screens—allowing them to work efficiently, communicate effectively, and explore their personal passions.
A look into Samsung’s 2021 MICRO LED, Samsung Neo LED and lifestyle product lineup
Samsung first introduced MICRO LED technology back in 2018 in the form of “The Wall”. It is a configurable system of modules that can reach an astounding 292 inches for an experience like no other. With its inherent flexibility, “The Wall” requires professional installation in the home or office.
Now, Samsung has made it possible for MICRO LED technology to fit into the traditional TV experience with no need for professional assembly and installation. MICRO LED is available in 110-inch and 99-inch sizes globally beginning at the end of March; an 88’’ size is launching this fall, and a 76-inch is on the future roadmap.
MICRO LED can become 4 screens in one through 4Vue (Quad View) which allows users to watch up to four sources of content simultaneously.
Samsung developed Samsung Neo QLED to enhance the viewing experience, no matter what you are watching. The Samsung Neo QLED viewing experience is defined by Samsung’s Neo Quantum Processor and new Quantum Mini LEDs which are just 1/40th the size of conventional LEDs. This allows for ultra-fine light control.
With deep blacks, bright lights, and upscaling technology smarter than any Samsung TV has ever offered, Samsung Neo QLED delivers an ultra-realistic picture.
Samsung is also the Official TV Partner of Xbox Series X in the United States and Canada with their Samsung Neo QLED and QLED TV offerings. Samsung claims that their Neo QLED and QLED technology let you see virtually every detail with incredible 4k clarity, a silky-smooth 120 frames per second, and a low 5.8ms response time.
On top of that, Samsung has also 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 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 (which are usually only available on gaming monitors) to the TV.
For those with a passion for fitness, Samsung Neo QLED brings Samsung Health, a comprehensive fitness and mindfulness platform launched in the spring of 2020. Samsung Health helped users stay fit last year with partner apps for every style of fitness and health, along with seamless connectivity to mobile devices and wearables.
Users can also access Smart Trainer through Samsung Health which uses AI to help analyse your posture and provide real-time feedback to improve your form as you follow instructional videos. Users will need the use of an optional camera though to fully utilise Smart Trainer.
In 2021, Samsung Neo QLED’s 8K models (QN800A and QN900A) will be available in 65-inch, 75-inch, and 85-inch sizes, while the 4K models (QN90A and QN85A) will reflect an even wider selection, starting at 50-inch.
Samsung also revealed their new lifestyle TV line. The Frame features more original artwork through new partnerships in the Art Store like NAVA Contemporary and Etsy. It also includes AI-based auto-curation technology that recommends over 1,400 pieces of art from world-renowned institutions based on your selections. The Frame also features increased photo storage space from 500 megabytes in 2020 to 6 gigabytes in 2021, so you can store up to 1,200 photos (all) in UHD quality. The Frame is now slimmer too at just 24.9mm thick, about the same depth as an actual picture frame.
Samsung has also introduced new ways to customise the Frame with accessories such as the Slim Fit Wall Mount to five bezel options and more from third party providers. There’s also My Shelf, a new accessory that lets you create a tailored wall with personal touches to compliment your screen and décor. It can be attached to the 55 inch, 65 inch, and 75 inch Frame sizes, and will be available in four different colours: beige, white, brown, and black.
Next on the list is the Premiere, the industry’s first triple laser projector with 4K resolution. it features a minimalist design, with rounded edges and a fabric finish. Not only that, Samsung will be offering rollable screens optimised for the Premiere later this year on its official website.
Samsung also introduced the Terrace, an outdoor TV that s weather-resistant, with an IP55 rating to protect against water and dust. The Terrace is available in 56-inch, 65-inch, and a new 75-inch Full Sun model is coming in time for summer. Panel protected up to 6 hours in sunlight at 700 watts and 104 degrees Fahrenheit; brightness may decrease to protect panel with other high temperature and sunlight conditions.
Samsung also introduced a new lineup of monitors. These include Samsung’s Smart Monitor, their first “do-it-all” monitor which incorporate the functionalities of a monitor and a TV. The Smart Monitor is compatible with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wireless DeX, and Apple AirPlay 2, letting consumers work from anywhere without needing to connect to a PC. Next, is a new Odyssey G9 gaming monitor with a Quantum MiniLED display and 1000R screen curvature.
Samsung also introduced the Samsung Interactive Display FLIP 75-inch, a digital whiteboard you can write, draw, and edit on. The Flip features optimised 4K picture quality and easy-to-read visuals and come in either 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch variants.
Apart from TVs and monitors, Samsung also introduced the 2021 Q Series soundbar lineup which includes exclusive Q-Symphony tech, syncing audio from the Samsung TV to deliver enhanced 3-dimensional sound. Dubbed the Q950A, Samsung’s new soundbar boasts the industry’s first 11.1.4 channel sound, a Bass Boost feature and the Tap Sound which makes the soundbar easier to connect to your Samsung device. Furthermore, the Q950A works with multiple voice assistants, including Amazon Alexa and Bixby.
