The Xbox One X is coming and with it comes 4K TV support. So who better to partner with than Samsung? Samsung today announced that their QLED 4K TV lineup is the official 4K TV of the Xbox One X. While we have yet to experience 4K gaming ourselves, we can imagine how this is going to look. With the Xbox One X offering up 4K gaming, Samsung is hoping many gamers will consider upgrading their current TVs to Samsung’s QLED TV’s.
“The arrival of true 4K UHD gameplay on Xbox One X this Fall gives gamers the perfect reason to upgrade their television,” said Eddie Combs, Vice President of Marketing for Samsung Electronics America. “If gamers are looking for a TV that delivers premium 4K HDR picture quality with industry leading design and smart functionality, then the QLED TV and Xbox One X are an unbeatable 4K gaming combination.”
“Xbox One X will bring true 4K gaming to console players for the first time with 40 percent more power than any other console,” said Mike Nichols, Corporate Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Xbox. “Samsung’s QLED 4K TV is our favorite way to play Xbox One X, and we’re thrilled to join forces with Samsung in the U.S. to deliver immersive 4K gaming experiences to our fans.”
Samsung is certainly known for offering up some of the best TV technology on the market so it makes sense Microsoft would partner with them. While the Xbox One S supports 4K video playback, the Xbox One X will support 4K gaming playback so now is the time to market 4K to gamers as well.
Samsung’s QLED TV takes Quantum dot technology to the next level with advancements in light efficiency, stability and a wider color spectrum. The QLED TV can express accurate color and achieve 100 percent color volume – providing a more realistic gaming experience just as the content creators intended. In addition, the QLED TV’s 4K HDR Elite features rich, deep black levels and bold contrast that displays hidden detail as it was meant to be seen.
For gamers, the QLED TV provides an unparalleled 4K HDR gaming experience. It leverages Quantum Dot technology to bring even the smallest graphical details to life in perfect color. And with 3-step image processing, the QLED TV features an exceptionally low input lag of less than 20 milliseconds to provide a seamless experience on even the most demanding multiplayer games. Meanwhile, a lifetime guarantee against burn-in means that gamers will never have to worry about potential display damage that could distract them from the next mission.
Samsung’s Smart Hub has been expanded to offer an even more intuitive and unified experience, directly via the QLED TV. By simply connecting Xbox One X, the TV automatically recognizes the console and sets up the Samsung One Remote – which now supports more devices and offers voice control capabilities across more Smart TV features. Just by saying “Game Mode” into the One Remote, users will have immediately optimized their audio and video settings for gaming. Paired with the latest Smart View App – available on Android or iOS mobile devices – users will enjoy their very own personalized Smart Hub.
Additionally, Samsung introduced new design elements that can fit into any home – regardless of the interior aesthetics or setup. The all-new Invisible Connection cable allows placement of the console elsewhere, with a single connection to the TV. Consumers can now reclaim their living room space once occupied by set-top boxes, external streaming devices and video game consoles with a single optical cable that brings all devices together in a clean, orderly manner. Additionally, Samsung has also introduced the No Gap Wall-mount which brings the TV flush against the wall, closer than ever before.
Samsung’s 2017 QLED TV lineup is available now at Samsung.com and at retailers nationwide.
