Under the tagline of “More Wow than Ever”, this year’s lineup showcases the latest innovations in premium audio and visual performances, gaming experiences, smart connectivity and sustainability initiatives for homes of all sizes. Samsung will also introduce more larger-sized TVs (75-inch and up) this year.

In a recent consumer survey conducted at the Samsung TV Tech Fair[1]:

  • 57% of respondents staying in a HDB flat and 51% staying in a condominium felt that a 75-inch TV was too big for their living rooms.
  • However, following a demonstration of optimal TV viewing distance[2], 84% of respondents living in HDBs and 90% of those living in condominiums are convinced that a 75-inch TV would fit in their living room.

“We understand that technology should empower and enhance people’s lives, not complicate them. For homeowners in Singapore, the TV continues to be a staple for entertainment in their living space – be it for streaming or gaming. Our recent study conducted at the Samsung TV Tech Fair showed that respondents clearly underestimated the size of their living rooms. As such, Samsung is introducing a larger size option for our OLED TV line, as well as continuing larger sized screens for our premium Neo QLED and QLED lineup,” said Steven Koh, Senior Director, Consumer Electronics Business (TV/AV), Samsung Electronics Singapore.

“Beyond making large screen sizes and premium picture quality more accessible than ever, openness and connectivity are also key for our 2023 range. Consumers can expect a holistic device experience tailored to what they need and want out of their connected home with our SmartThings capabilities,” Koh added.

A complete entertainment experience is not only delivered through visuals, but also through audio experiences that bring viewers closer to the action.

APPENDIX : SAMSUNG’S CONNECTED AND SUSTAINABILITY APPROACHES

1 – True, One Samsung Experience
Samsung’s 2023 TVs will be equipped with Smart Hub[9] – the centrepiece of the connected home experience that brings together Entertainment, Ambient options, and SmartThings all in one place. Committed to the need to make smart device connectivity easier and more intuitive, users can connect to and control various SmartThings supported devices and appliances from their 2023 Neo QLED TV[10].

With the SmartThings Zigbee & Matter Thread One-Chip Module built directly into the TVs, there is also no need for users to purchase a separate SmartThings dongle. SmartThings seamlessly syncs and offers easier control of compatible Samsung and third-party appliances and IoT devices, enhancing convenience through connectivity.

2 – Eco-conscious practices that make life easier and better for users
Earlier last year, Samsung announced its new environmental strategy, a comprehensive effort to join global efforts to tackle climate change.

Samsung is leading the way with three innovative approaches to sustainability: Turning carbon dioxide (CO2) into recycled materials, using fewer materials, and upcycling products and packaging.

  • Samsung’s 2023 TVs, monitors, and remote controls use recycled resin made of at least 50% recycled materials.[11]
  • In addition, Samsung has made significant efforts to ensure it is offering sustainable packaging from the box to the wrappers.
  • Samsung has also developed AI Energy Mode that helps users monitor energy consumption and usage patterns, putting them in control of themselves. AI Energy Mode feature even analyses the content playing on the screen to reduce power consumption without distracting one from the content.
  • Samsung’s third generation SolarCell Remote uses fewer materials and is more compact. It is also free of licensing, allowing any manufacturer to join Samsung on the journey in making the world a more eco-conscious place.
