The world of TVs will soon get a new addition as Samsung has unveiled a production-ready model of its soon-to-be-released ES9000 OLED Smart TV.
The precursor of the ES9000 model shown off recently by Samsung was actually boasted to the public by the South Korean tech giant back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Take a look at it in these pictures.
Here’s also our coverage of the unveiling back in January where Samsung touted its OLED TV as the future of televisions.
OLED allows for better picture quality as individual organic light emitting diodes of the panel are lit up eliminating the need for a backlight. As a result the TV panel also consumes less energy and is very thin. It also offers fast response times eliminating what is called motion blur wherein the panel cannot keep up with fast-moving scenes.
Nonetheless, The Associated Press says that the new Samsung TV will be costly. Early adopters should get ready to part with $9,000 when Samsung releases the ES9000 OLED TV this second half of the year. This – pictured below – will be what you’re getting though and the bragging right of being one of the first owners of a LED TV in the whole world.
However, you may wait for three years if that price is too stiff as Samsung predicts the OLED TV will be mainstream then.
Other notable features of the Samsung ES9000 OLED TV are Smart Interaction (voice and gesture control), Smart Content (no need to explain that one as this is a smart TV capable of browsing the internet after all), Smart Evolution (upgradeable dual-core CPU), and Dual View technology (simultaneous 2D and 3D content viewing).
