The launch of Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs has ushered in a new era of Intelligent Display. QLED TVs achieve crisp details, seamless connection to users’ favorite content via smart features, and a beautifully simplified design that discreetly harmonizes with any space or lifestyle.
In Samsung’s first TV launch of the year, the company unveiled the 2018 QLED TVs to media representatives, partners and invitees at the First Look event, hosted at the American Stock Exchange in New York on March 7. The event not only introduced Samsung’s future vision for the TV, but also gave attendees the opportunity to get hands-on with the newest range of 2018 QLED TVs. The exhibition featured interactive experience zones where visitors could enjoy true-to-life picture quality, Ambient Mode, SmartThings integration with Bixby, and an ever-so-subtle Invisible Connection.
Take a look at the event highlights below.
