Samsung's 55-inch OLED TV Coming to UK This Spring

By - Source: Crave | B 7 comments

Slim, sexy, and scheduled for landing in just a few months' time.

We see a lot of beautiful gadgets at CES each year and this year Samsung's 55-inch OLED was at the top of our list. With it's slim design and minimal bezel, it's hard not to see the beauty in a TV like this. Sadly, at the time, Samsung couldn't say when the device would be launching in the UK -- the company only said that it would go on sale in the second half of this year. Lucky for us, unlike some products that appear at CES only to never be seen again, the 'Super' OLED TV will soon make its way to the United Kingdom.

Crave cites word from Samsung directly in reporting that the 8mm thin television is on its way to the UK this spring. The TV is 3D-capable, and also boasts an integrated camera coupled with what Samsung is calling Smart Interaction Technology. This allows users to control their TV with voice and motion control as well as face recognition.

Pricing has yet to be announced. Still, considering we had originally heard the TV was scheduled to be launched in the second half of the year, we're happy enough just knowing it's coming sooner rather than later. Besides, the price would probably only depress us anyway.

    What's the resolution? I'm afraid it's 1080p since it's a "TV".

    "This allows users to control their TV with voice and motion control as well as face recognition."

    Ahead of Apple, lets just hope Samsung are able to integrate this functionality with good bug-free software/GUI.

    I heard the Samsung's OLED is going to cost more than LG's. I was already leaning towards LG anyway but I think Samsung made a bad marketing choice to go more expensive than their rising competitor.

    I am sick and tired of Samsung keeping it down low with their OLED TV release date. Maybe they don’t even have one ready yet and they're just stalling time. I personally think they are not prepared for the WOLED tech presented by LG.

    "face recognition"? Sounds a bit sketchy to me. Who knows what could happen…so many skilled hackers out there.

    The Samsung OLED looks great. It is going to be an intense competition between Samsung and LG. I think LG might win though because Samsung is supposed to be more expensive.
