Samsung will be holding an event in New York City on March 7th, 2018 where they will showcase their 2018 4K QLED TVs. This “First Look” event promises to show-off the 2018 lineup of 4K QLED TVs the company wants you to buy. According to Forbes, the new range of 4K QLED TVs will be named the Q6, Q7, Q8, and Q9. This rolls over from last years naming convention. We reviewed the 65″ Samsung Q8C and we came away very impressed with what Samsung is doing with QLED.
Most average consumers are fairly happy with either their Samsung 4K QLED TVs or the competition’s alternative OLED TV offerings. As with any industry, there is the crowd who have invested in one or the other and defend their chosen technology tooth and nail. Both platforms offer a great picture, vibrant color, and an overall wonderful user experience. It will be interesting to see what Samsung has up their sleeves for this round of TVs.
The company said, “Throughout the continuous evolution of its technology, Samsung always designs its products around the lifestyles of its customers. The new QLED TVs will do this in brand new ways for 2018.”
The First Look event will be held at the American Stock Exchange in Manhattan and yours truly will be in attendance. I fully expect that Samsung’s virtual assistant, Bixby, will be a big part of the new TV software. Samsung really pushed the idea of connecting everything through Bixby, from your Galaxy S9 and Samsung fridge to your smart lights and new 4K QLED TV.
Whether or not you like Samsung’s TVs, be sure to stay tuned for more coverage come March 7th and 8th at the First Look event!
