Samsung Electronics Launches QLED TV Series in Singapore
The QLED TV Series offers consumers an enhanced viewing experience, ushering in a new era of innovation for Samsung’s televisions
Singapore – April 11, 2017 – The long wait is finally over as Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today launched its spectacular new QLED TV line-up – the Q7F, Q8C and Q9F – and the new Samsung Sound+ Soundbar (MS6501). First unveiled at CES 2017 where it won more than 20 notable awards including four CES Innovation Awards, Samsung's QLED TV Series offers a plethora of features, including improved colour performance and enhanced Smart TV offerings. More importantly, it promises to give living spaces a major overhaul, with new design concepts allowing consumers to personalise their own homes.
"The launch of the QLED TV Series in Singapore signifies our continued commitment to bringing the latest and most innovative technology to consumers," said Steven Koh, Director, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore. "With even more Smart TV features and a dramatically improved colour performance, the QLED TV Series will provide consumers with a state-of-the-art centrepiece within their homes while giving them an unbeatable viewing experience."
Impeccable Picture Quality
QLED TVs have achieved breakthrough performance in terms of picture quality with the capability to express 100% colour volume (DCI-P3). This means they can accurately reproduce colours at any level of brightness with even the subtlest nuances visible at their peak luminance. Colour volume represents how accurate colour can be expressed at different levels of brightness. For example, a leaf can be perceived as different colours, from yellow-green to turquoise, depending on the brightness of light. This capability ensures that QLED TVs deliver the most vivid and realistic images, true to the original picture.
Further validating this milestone, Samsung has also received verification from world-class testing and certification association, Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker, for its ability to reproduce 100% colour volume (DCI-P3) for its Q7F, Q8C and Q9F series QLED TVs. This verification is a mark of QLED TV's ability to provide consistently high quality picture to consumers. The 2017 line-up of QLED TVs has also been certified by the UHD Alliance as ULTRA HD PREMIUM™, meaning that the QLED TVs meet or exceed strict performance levels for 4K resolution, high-dynamic range, and wide colour spectrum.
Besides astounding colours, contrast level is essential to give consumers the perfect viewing experience. The new Samsung QLED TVs can express deeper blacks and whiter whites regardless of how light or dark the scene is, or whether the content is being played in a brightly lit or dark room. Consumers can experience bold details with optimal contrast in all conditions with the QLED TV's advanced HDR feature.
Furthermore, the QLED TV delivers this level of performance no matter where the viewer is sitting, offering consistent colour and quality from any viewing angle.
Samsung's Smartest TV Yet
This year, Samsung is focused on the continued evolution of its much-lauded Smart TV capabilities, offering consumers the simple, unified user experience that they desire for all their entertainment content – wherever and whenever they want it.
With the enhanced Samsung One Remote, consumers can control devices from a single TV remote controller, the One Remote, removing the need for multiple controllers, thus reducing clutter. Complemented with voice control capabilities and an intuitive design with just a few buttons, One Remote allows consumers to access essential television functions and content quickly and comfortably.
Smart View App
The Smart Hub interface has also been extended to smartphones through Samsung's new and improved Smart View app, which now provides a comprehensive overview of all available Smart TV content on the screen of their compatible mobile device. With the improved Smart View app interface, consumers can now use their compatible mobile device to select and start their favourite live TV programs and video-on-demand services on their TV.
Consumers can also wirelessly send content from their compatible mobile device, such as personal videos and photos, to their QLED TV in original resolution, allowing them to continue using their mobile device for other tasks while connected.
Personalise Your Living Space
The Samsung QLED TV is more than just a TV – not only does it deliver the ultimate viewing experience, it has been beautifully and thoughtfully designed to seamlessly blend in with living spaces as a state-of-the-art masterpiece. Consumers will not have to deal with cable clutter and thick wall mounts thanks to the design of the QLED TV.
Clean Cable Solution
The QLED TV comes with a single, transparent 'Invisible Cable' which runs to the One Connect box, through which all the external devices can be gathered and connected to. Consumers will no longer see messy wires coming out from the TV and it also reduces the hassle of having to reach behind the TV to plug and unplug cables all the time.
360o Boundless Design
With a uniformly thin body and a nearly bezel-less frame, the QLED TV looks breath-taking from every angle. In addition to the clean cable solution, the introduction of the 'No-Gap Wall-Mount'1 allows the TV to be mounted as close to the wall as possible, which makes the TV appear seamlessly flushed against the wall. Installation is easy and fool-proof, so you can enjoy your favourite show in no time!
Customise Your QLED TV with Exquisite Accessories
For those who prefer not to mount the TV, Samsung is offering two new stands designed to elevate and showcase the QLED TVs as beautiful home accessories all by themselves. Consumers can choose either the 'Studio Stand1', which resembles an easel with a painting, or the sleek 'Gravity Stand1', which when attached to the TV, resembles a contemporary sculpture.
This year, Samsung is offering a new Premium UHD Line Up – MU8000 and MU7000 series, curved screen and flat screen respectively. This line-up features strong picture quality and equally smart features as the QLED TV. The Premium UHD TVs also come with strong HDR features, allowing viewers to experience bold contrast. Equipped with the One Connect box and coupled with the Samsung Clean Cable Solution, it gives consumers not only an enhanced picture quality, but also keeps consumers' living spaces clutter-free.
New Sound+ Soundbar Delivers Incredible Sound with Less Room Clutter
The new Samsung Sound+ Soundbar, MS6501, is Samsung's first soundbar which embeds a subwoofer directly into the primary unit, ensuring that deep and detailed bass is packed into one body. The MS6501 delivers powerful home cinema sound on premium TVs, without the need for a separate sub-woofer, perfect for homes that have space constraints.
With the new MS6501 Soundbar, Samsung audio has applied 'Distortion Cancelling' technology which reduces sound alterations to deliver crystal clear sound. The connection with the TV is now easier than ever, with both units able to be powered on by a single power source, removing overall clutter around the TV. Installation is simple through an optional mounting bracket1 which seamlessly attaches the Sound+ Soundbar onto the TV.
