If you have ever desired to showcase your smartphone contents on a TV the exact way you have it on your mobile device, then Samsung’s latest 43-inch quantum-dot TV may cater for your unusual desire
Apparently, there is a new TV by Samsung that can rotate about 90 degrees so that you can easily rotate it vertically to achieve a portrait mode that will offer you the same view as your smartphone. This latest masterpiece is one of the company’s 2019 TV lineup, also known as Sero- a 43-inch quantum-dot TV that’s part of Samsung’s Serif and Frame QLED family. The company claims it came up with the idea by studying the habits of millennials, who it says love their smartphones.
The idea of the quantum-dot is for users to have a bigger screen that can project the same view as from their mobile devices, instead of having to forcefully rotate to horizontal or landscape mode. This way, you can just mirror your smartphones and keep at your presentation as it is in most cases. Otherwise, imaging, having a huge screen that mirrors your messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat and the rest. Amazing right? I guess yes.
Samsung added that the TV’s portrait mode could also be suitable for viewing photos and visiting “shopping sites with comments on the bottom.” The company also argues this orientation might improve web browsing in general.
“Samsung will continue introducing screens that respect personal consumer tastes,” said display president Han Jong-hee.
Other Sero specs include 4.1 channel audio, a built-in 60-watt speaker system, and a microphone for operating Samsung’s AI assistant Bixby and issuing voice commands. It’s also likely to be 4K. Like The Frame, The Sero can show images, widgets, and other information when in standby mode.
The Sero is set to launch in Korea next month for 1.9 million won, which is around $1,600 0r ₦575248 (contrary to the $16,000 some sites reported). No word on whether it’ll ever make its way to the US.
