The Neo QLED TV lineup is made for now. Complementing their vivid picture quality, they feature a premium Infinity One Design and Object Tracking Sound Pro that ensure that the TVs look and sound incredible from every angle. Neo QLEDs also carry Samsung’s award-winning Tizen operating system, which ensures that the smart TV features are seamless and intuitive. Samsung’s TV design has always been geared towards providing users with cinema-like viewing experiences. With Neo QLED, you get a truly immersive TV viewing experience with the depth and vividness of real 8K, which has 16x more resolution than full HD.

Additionally, through the Samsung ecosystem this experience has been amplified even more. Samsung Neo QLED automatically recognises your office PC1, letting you conveniently access and work on office files from your home TV. You can connect your smartphone with Samsung DeX2 to enjoy a more expansive, more comfortable view of your workspace. You can even work together with colleagues on Microsoft 365 documents3 — right from your TV. With Google Duo built-in, you don’t have to rely only on emails, texts or other documents to communicate. Instead, with a simple press of a remote, you can instantly video chat4 with the whole team at the same time. Whether you need to connect with an office or a classroom, you’re there, even from the comfort of your living room.

“With the right technology, we’re ready for a better, brighter future through technology personalised for you, AI to improve your home life, and innovation that makes a real difference in all you do. The 2021 Neo QLED TV is an amazing new addition to an ecosystem of connected and intelligent devices that enhance the TV experience in exciting new ways,” says Nivash Ramsern, head: visual displays at Samsung South Africa.

Samsung’s ecosystem ensures that your complete comfort is always at your control. There’s no need to interrupt the work or entertainment. You can use the SmartThings app to control connected devices from your living room with your TV. With the SmartThings dashboard, you’ll enjoy the seamless power to monitor and control all of your SmartThings devices for a totally connected home. Additionally, an increasing number of gamers look for large screen displays with high-end picture quality when shopping for a TV, and Samsung continues to be a leader in the TV-focused gaming experience. In fact, Samsung Neo QLEDs received an industry-first ‘gaming TV performance’ certification from VDE in Germany5.

Samsung and its designers will continue to challenge themselves to create products that provide users with leading functionality and a design that captures the true essence of TV viewing. Neo QLED is the future and it’s set to bring South Africans together in a whole new way.

The Neo QLED TV will be available in the following lineup:
