Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced the launch of its flagship line of 2018 QLED TVs, Premium UHD TVs, UHD TVs and AV products, the next generation of home entertainment products that enhances the TV-viewing experience like never before. The 2018 QLED TV line-up features Direct Full Array backlighting technology and a stylish Magic Screen  for spectacular picture quality and seamless design. The 2018 Premium UHD and UHD TV line-up also comes with impressive features that are sure to enhance the quality of consumer lifestyles. The clear and immersive sound systems from the latest AV products also elevate home entertainment to a whole new level.


“The new 2018 TV and AV line-up is designed to provide total immersion, enhancing the quality of life for consumers while ensuring ease of use,” said Steven Koh, Director, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “As Samsung is always committed to bringing the latest and most innovative technology to consumers, the new line-up of televisions and audio products certainly leverages on new technologies to provide consumers with a breath-taking viewing experience.”


Stunning Picture Quality


There is a hidden director behind all 2018 Samsung QLED TVs, giving breath to QLED’s proprietary features and allowing them to come alive in delivering extraordinary picture performance. The Q Engine – the powerful processor behind QLED’s spectacular picture quality, with its brilliant data analysis and tuning processes, creates the most life-like images in impressive colour, clarity, contrast and HDR on the Samsung QLED TVs.


This year, Samsung continues to champion technology advancements by further enhancing the use of Quantum Dot technology, the tool that drives 100% colour volume  that reproduces pure and natural images on QLED TVs. The proprietary metal alloy shell not only enables greater colour accuracy and higher peak brightness, but also protects the screen from burn-in. This confidence in product quality has led Samsung to offer a 10-year burn-in free warranty for all QLED TV purchases.


The 2018 flagship Q9F series creates impeccable picture quality with the Direct Full Array backlighting technology, allowing consumers to view stunning images with pristine contrast. The technology uses a panel with zones of smartly controlled backlighting that adjusts automatically to deliver deeper blacks and purer whites, reducing blooming and halo effects while enabling dramatic contrast. This ensures that the screen is illuminated accurately, providing consumers with the perfect viewing experience.


This year’s QLED TVs also use Ultra Black, a sophisticated anti-reflection technology, together with HDR Elite powered by HDR 10+ to ensure that every intricate detail can be enjoyed from almost any angle, under all lighting conditions. The screens have the ability to go up to 2,000 nits  of brightness level, allowing consumers to view even the tiniest details in striking contrast comfortably in a brightly-lit room.


With such astounding picture quality, the QLED TVs promises to deliver high level of performance no matter where the viewer is sitting, offering consistent colour and quality from any viewing angle.


The TV That Blends In


One Invisible Connection 2.06

Consumers no longer have to worry about cable clutter with Samsung’s simple solution. The new One Invisible Connection 2.0 is a slim cable that integrates power cable and data lines that were previously separated, connecting it to the One Connect box and harmonizing the TV with the surrounding’s aesthetics. Available for up to 15 metres, the One Invisible Connection 2.0 enhances consumer lifestyle by providing flexibility for TV placement in homes instead of having to place their TV near data or power outlets. By plugging devices into the One Connect box instead of the back of the TV, wire clutter will be reduced, providing consumers with a world of opportunities to finally design their space the way they want it.


Magic Screen

In addition to delivering the ultimate viewing experience, the Samsung QLED TVs are also thoughtfully designed to seamlessly blend in with consumer homes and living spaces. For wall-mounted TVs, the Magic Screen can mimic the pattern on the wall behind the TV to create an astonishing visual effect in which the TV blends seamlessly into the wall. In addition to the seamless integration with living room spaces, the Magic Screen also provides useful information throughout the day – from playing music to weather updates.


Spend Time Watching, Not Searching


With the intuitive Samsung Smart Hub, consumers can experience entertainment through a faster, easier and more intelligent way. They can now dive straight into their favourite content through a simple navigation with recommendations from their favourite Apps. With the One Remote control, consumers can easily manage their different devices, which will be automatically recognised and labelled through the Auto Detection function, and need not fumble around to connect to the correct connection port.


Easy Set Up

The new SmartThings mobile app offer consumers an effortless set-up when setting up a new TV, saving significant amount of time for them to jump right into their favourite shows.
