Samsung unveils invisible QLED TVs

  • Samsung's 2018 QLED TV lineup will include Bixby to be smarter than ever before

Aside from the nice look, Ambient Mode will also display temperature, news headlines, personal photos, and other information.

One of the key features in the new QLED TV is an "Ambient Mode" that mimics the pattern on the wall behind the TV to create a visual effect to make the TV blend into the surroundings - making it nearly invisible.

Sitting at the top of the QLED tree are the Q9F and Q8F, both are flat screen TVs and available in sizes from 55 - 88-inches, but more importantly they are the only two models to receive Direct Full Array (DFA) technology.

Sure, Samsung showed off its MicroLED wall and 8K consumer TV at CES this year, but what about TVs for the rest of us?

Mr Mahdi told 9NEWS: "Our 2018 QLED range is created to bring Australians together to enjoy the best TV experience we have ever offered". One Remote Control applies to NU7400 and higher models. The FALD feature can also be found in the Samsung's QLED lineups. Those details were scant in Las Vegas, but now the company is ready to talk about its QLED lineup.

Samsung has introduced "ambient mode" which allows a TV to "blend" into the wall.

All QLED models benefit from HDR10+ compatibility, which is an open standard created to work in a similar way to Dolby Vision, by telling the screen how bright or dark it should be on a frame-by-frame basis.

For example, apps running in the background of Android P will not be allowed to access the phone's microphone or camera. It can even enable a "fused camera stream" that auto-switches between two or more cameras.

To set up the feature, you'll need to take a picture of the mounted TV via the corresponding Samsung SmartThings app.

Before you mount the TV, just snap a photo of the wall you're hanging it on, and once it's up you can set that as its wallpaper.

In short, Samsung's clever new Ambient Mode tries to prevent the TV from looking like an ugly black box. As Dave Das, senior vice president and general manager of consumer electronics product marketing for Samsung Electronics America, revealed, over 50 percent of the TVs sold by Samsung are 65-inches or larger. They also act as a centralised hub for Samsung's SmartThings smart home platform, giving users on-screen control over all SmartThings-compatible gadgets.

The new 2018 flagship Samsung QLED TV series is the Q9FN. These are actually features that we've seen expanded quite a bit in nearly all premium 2018 4K TVs from several brands and Samsung is no exception.

We're used to turning televisions off when we're not actively enjoying content, but Samsung wants to change that with Ambient Mode to make its massive displays less conspicuous. These UHD TVs include features such as 4K UHD and HDR picture capabilities, clean cable solutions, slim design and Smart TV capabilities.

Go big or go home is a pretty classic Aussie phrase and it applies across nearly all of Samsung's range with most of their models available in a massive 75 inches which according to Samsung Australia Head of Product AV Hass Mahdi is in response to customer demand. The Q9F would come in 75 and 65-inch screens, and the Q8F in 55, 65 and 75-inch. These models reflect consumer demand for larger screen televisions for a more impactful, immersive home viewing experience.
