Samsung’s consumer-friendly version of its huge The Wall screen will eventually be available in a more reasonable 76-inch version, you know, for those of us whose homes can’t accommodate 110-inch TVs.
Samsung today announced the smaller version of MicroLED TVs during its big Unbox and Discover event. While the 76-inch MicroLED will be available “in the future,” the company said the 99-inch and 110-inch versions of the TV will be available closer to April. (It will also sell an 88-inch version of the TV, and that size is scheduled to launch in the fall.) Samsung formerly Announced sizes beyond the rather limiting 110-inch version of its MicroLED-powered TV at CES earlier this year.
In exciting news for people watching Frame, Samsung’s most popular TV, the TV will get a huge storage boost in its 2021 models with a 500MB increase of storage to 6GB (which Samsung says supports storage for about 1,200 UHD images). The company will also introduce a new Frame accessory later this year for its 55-, 65- and 75-inch frame sizes called My Shelf. It will ship in beige, white, brown and black and is intended to help Samsung’s technology better integrate into your décor. Think of it as a kind of display board to display your TV alongside other works of art or objects.
But that’s not all the TV news that Samsung has thrown at us today. Samsung is also rolling out a new full-sun version of its Terrace TV in a 75-inch size closer to summer.. Meanwhile, the Frame and all Samsung Q70A 4K TVs and above will offer AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for console and PC gaming, a bonus for serious gamers.
And speaking of gaming, the company’s Odyssey gaming monitor this year will come equipped with Quantum MiniLED enhancements and the company’s Quantum Matrix technology. Additionally, Samsung said that its QLED is the official Xbox Series X TV in Canada and the US, as was the case with Xbox One X in the past. The company’s 2021 Neo QLED 8K, Neo QLED 4K, and QLED 4K TVs are now available for purchase or pre-order.
Lastly, AirPlay 2 heads to Samsung’s funky rotary Sero TV, stand that in practice sounds eerily familiar to some recently deceased streaming service. According to Samsung, iOS devices can be paired with the Sero to “automatically rotate the TV screen based on the horizontal or vertical orientation of the phone.” It’s as if even in death, Quibi still manages to find a way. Apple Quibi + will be supported “soon,” according to the company.
