The Curved OLED’s display has been carefully crafted to accentuate its ‘Timeless Arena’ design, whilst also being at the cutting edge of technology thanks both the Multi View feature and the Evolution Kit.

OLED panels consist of thousands of self-emitting diodes that deliver richer and brighter images compared to current TVs. However these require complex production methods. Samsung, with its technology, aims to eliminate the potential for defective pixels, delivering flawless picture quality on the Curved OLED TV.

Timeless Arena’ design

 

The design of the Curved OLED TV is inspired by a ‘Timeless Arena’ which the display is placed within a luxurious frame whose curved shape mirrors the curvature of an arena. Because of this, the panel keeps the distance between the viewer and TV screen the same from almost any angle for a more lifelike viewing experience. The product is also made from premium metals that add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

The Curved OLED TV offers exclusive features and proprietary technology not found in any other products around the world.  Multi View in particular allows viewers to watch two different live TV programs simultaneously. This technology is made possible through the rapid response time of the screen and exclusive 3D glasses with built-in earphones that deliver separate audio to each viewer.

 

Samsung’s Curved OLED TV is also compatible with the Evolution Kit ensuring that the TV is future-proofed and updates allowing the viewer to enjoy the benefits of the latest features that Samsung has to offer, completing Samsung’s ‘future-proof’ premium TV lineup that includes this year’s flagship Smart TVs and UHD TVs.
