Samsung is the latest TV maker to unveil new models at CES 2017 with its QLED line. While the brand is promising improved picture quality, the most notable feature is its stunning design. Samsung will drop its SUHD line in favor of its new QLED sets that feature HDR, better viewing angles and increased color reproduction. Today’s announcement is no doubt in response to LG’s dominance in the high-end TV market with its OLED displays.
The new design will allow consumers to mount these TVs directly onto your wall. A new proprietary mounting system provides very little gap between the back and your mounting surface. Additionally, there are two new stands made from aluminum and stainless steel that lends itself from Samsung’s Serif line. A new cable management system reduces clutter with a nearly “invisible” connection between set-top box and TV. This happens with a new cable Samsung has developed that is almost clear like a fiber optic cable. Final pricing has yet to be unveiled, but we know that each TV will have the usual smart functionality and a variety of inputs.

“With the QLED TV, we’ve solved problems that everyone —and every home—has experienced; cable clutter, thick wall mounts and a slew of devices sitting right under the TV,” said Dave Das, Senior Vice President of Consumer Electronics Marketing for Samsung Electronics America. “With our 2017 lineup, the focus remains where it should be—the content on the screen —not everything surrounding it.”
