Samsung The First Look 2021: Neo QLED and Micro LED TVs, No Charge Remote and Other Future Technologies (Most Importantly, Explained On GIFs)

Each year at CES, Samsung unveils a new line of TVs and showcases its most advanced

technologies.This year, due to well-known events, the presentation with the modest name The First Look 2021 (literally - "first look") took place online. And this time we were shown something much more than updating the TV line. During the 45-minute presentation, not only the key TV series of 2021, including design ones, were shown. But also a new, next, technological breakthrough in TVs, comparable to the transition from monochrome TVs to color, the emergence of LCD TVs or more advanced TVs based on inorganic diodes or quantum dots. This is a new series of Neo QLED TVs with flagship 8K QN900A TVs and 4K QN90A TVs. And also a new series of Micro LED TVs, the older models of which will have diagonals of 99 and 110 inches. For our, the world's most curious readers, we have selected all the most important and interesting from the presentation.

Neo QLED

Samsung calls NEO QLED a quantum leap (hereyou can also see a clear play on words - this is the development of quantum dot panels) in television display technologies. Instead of traditional LEDs with a diffusing lens, the new TVs use Quantum Mini LEDs, which are 40 (!) Times smaller in height. They are housed in incredibly thin micro layers, allowing for much more precise control over the flow of light, making the picture clearer thanks to a 12-bit brightness scale with 4096 gradations instead of 10-bit in previous generation TVs. The technology itself is called Quantum Matrix.

The heart of NEO QLED is the Neo Quantum processor.It uses 16 neural network models and deep learning technologies to upscale images to 4K and 8K resolutions. And it processes the image in real time, additionally working with image noise, blurring, black contrast and detail.

The TVs have a frameless Infinity One design, these are thin panels with a connection block in a special Attachable Slim One Connect Box stand.

It is an elegant and simple solution for all externalwired connections to the TV. It folds down to wall mount your TV. In this case, of course, the connection cable still remains, although it is not visible in the presentation.

Micro LED

Micro LED technology used to be used onlyto create commercial panels (for concert halls and outdoor advertising). In 2021, Samsung is launching its first consumer TV models using it. It allows you to create large TV diagonals up to 110 inches. Micro LED is thinner than human hair. The TV uses 24 million of these self-illuminating inorganic LEDs, each individually dimmed to provide a bright and clear picture. Micro LED TVs have a frameless monolithic screen design that occupies more than 99% of the front panel.

Solar Panel Remote Control

Samsung's 2021 TVs will have a new onesolar powered remote control. It will be able to charge the built-in battery indoors from daylight or lighting lamps, but for reliability there is also a microUSB charging connector. It's surprising why no one has thought of such a decision before. Samsung estimates such a remote will prevent 99 million AAA batteries from wasting over seven years. To create it, a new production process was introduced, which includes 24% of recyclable materials, in particular, plastic bottles.

New sound technologies: Object Tracking Sound (OTS) Pro and SpaceFit Sound

In addition to the image, of course, it was not withoutnew technologies for sound processing. Object Tracking Sound (OTS) Pro allows you to track the movement of objects on the screen, accompanying them with corresponding changes in sound.

SpaceFit Sound analyzes the TV environment from physical objects using special sensors and adapts the TV sound to the surrounding space, taking into account the characteristics of the room.

Samsung Health and Smart Trainer

Samsung Health app got toTVs, helping to monitor health. The function for TVs is called Smart Trainer. It requires a connected camera to analyze the user's posture in real time during exercise, acting as a personal trainer.

Game Bar and Super Ultrawide GameView

Samsung has prepared a separate surprise forgamers - it's no secret that today TVs are often used to play games on a huge screen. Gamers have a dedicated Game Bar menu, FreeSync Premium Pro support for smoother picture quality, and a dedicated Super Ultrawide GameView mode that lets you switch your TV to ultra-wide gaming monitors, allowing you to capture more of the frame just the way the game's creators intended (and, accordingly, get an advantage in the game).

Computer on TV

The dream of working remotely is connecting to MS Office365 via your TV web browser to create and edit documents. This requires the Easy Connection app and a Samsung account. All that remains is to connect a keyboard and mouse to the TV, and you can work remotely by connecting to your working Windows computer.

4Vue (Quad View)

Another advantage of the large diagonalMicro LED TVs can become 4Vue or Quad View mode, which allows you to simultaneously connect to the TV up to 4 different image sources. For example, a common scenario is to play on one screen and watch the broadcast of its passage on the other.

Televisions for Everyone: Features for Visually and Hearing Impaired People

The 2021 Samsung TV ideology includesthe slogan Screens Everywhere. Screens for All. That is, screens are everywhere and screens for everyone. For example, Samsung smartphones have had a screen adaptation mode for people with visual impairments who perceive colors incorrectly for ten years already. Now these opportunities are coming to televisions.

Samsung TVs appear in 2021avatar sign language translator. A technology that combines sound recognition and the creation of avatars in real time (it's not for nothing that we have tested all these emoji in smartphones for several years, helping to train neural networks, now these technologies will serve humanity).

By connecting a camera, the TV will be able to recognize commands made in sign language.

In 2021, Samsung TVs will haveautomatic subtitles that recognize the sound on the screen (not just voice). And in 2022, the company undertakes to launch a voice guide for the visually impaired in different languages.

Eco-friendly packaging: now not only houses for cats

New packaging idea that transforms into homesfor cats, got a great sequel. First, Samsung is eliminating the use of inks applied to the box to make it easier to recycle corrugated board.

Secondly, cardboard boxes are used to create many other toys:

Projection Laser TV

Finally, the last of the presented novelties,which is of interest is a projection TV that is placed at a distance of 10 centimeters from the wall with a screen and allows you to create an image with a diagonal of up to 130 inches. There are no specific details about him yet.

Now it remains only to wait for all these new products on sale in order to appreciate all these, sometimes incredible, capabilities of modern televisions.
