Samsung Electronics to Welcome Zero-Bezel TV at 2020 CES
Last updated on August 29th, 2020
Samsung Electronics has come up with the plan to launch the world’s first frame-less QLED TV at the biggest consumer electronics show, 2020 International CES. The Zero-Bezel TV is being launched measuring 65 inches or more. The number of models planned for release has not been finalised as of yet.
Sources claim that manufacturing partners include Shinsegye Engineering and Taehwa Precision. The exact pricing of the device is still unknown. A report released by The Elec claims that Samsung recently trademarked the term “Zero-Bezel”. A German site 4KFilme has released the first look of the TV.
There are speculations that the TV will support a 4K resolution, that is considered standard in smart TVs. Moreover, the 8K resolution might have HDR. Rumours about the name of the TV run mainly around Q900T and Q950T, supposedly having Samsung’s QLED display technology.
The South Korean multinational announced today that the US has granted certification for its high-quality dot liquefied emitting diode 8K TVs. The US-based 8K Association, which approved the certification is a cross-industry group directed towards facilitating the growth of the 8K ecosystem.
The QLED 8K TV is designed to deliver 16 times the resolution of a full HD TV, that modifies flat images into a profoundly deeper experience. Speaking about the certification from 8K Association, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, Hyogun Lee said, “We are proud to be one of the founding members of the 8K Association and to have our new lineup of QLED 8K TVs certified by the program. Our goal is to provide consumers with the ability to easily identify premium 8K displays from other devices when making purchasing decisions. Home entertainment and TVs are important investments for many of our consumers, and we hope that the 8KA Certification Logo will help guide them.”
Earlier today Samsung Electronics stopped some semiconductor production at its Hwaseong chip complex in South Korea post a minute-long blackout yesterday. Due to some issue with a regional power transmission cable, the company cut electricity and halted several DRAM and NAND flash chip production lines. Citing industry sources, Yonhap reported that full recovery is expected in almost two-three days.
The incident led to losses worth millions of dollars. Although, sources claim that there has been no direct damage. A similar power cut in 2018, at the Pyeongtaek chip plant led to estimated losses of about 50 billion won. As per an analyst, the recent incident might curb the hike of Samsung Electronics’ large chip inventory.
Having a lot in store for 2020, Samsung’s launch of Zero-Bezel TV and its Neon AI is sure to attract Samsung lovers.
