Samsung 24 Apr 2013

Samsung has announced its new Smart TV line-up that responds to consumer demands for premium design, smarter features, superior picture quality and larger screen sizes. Samsung’s 2013 Smart TVs allow users to enjoy a more seamless, integrated and immersive entertainment and viewing experience.

This year’s line-up builds on its 2012 success where Samsung sold 53 million units and continued as the worldwide TV leader for the seventh consecutive year. Samsung has also been TV leader in Singapore for seven consecutive years.

“Consumers in Singapore are demanding more from their TV and AV products in order to achieve the ultimate home entertainment experience,” said Irene Ng, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd. “We are offering a brand new Smart Hub, which offers a simpler, more intuitive way for consumers to discover and organise the content they love. By partnering various content producers including MediaCorp, SingTel and StarHub, we offer additional content choices for consumers in Singapore. In addition, the new upgradeable Evolution Kit makes Samsung Smart TVs timeless TVs.”

Quality Local Apps and Redesigned Smart Hub for the Ultimate Lean-back Experience

Samsung is providing consumers with a simpler way to embrace the discovery of new content and experiences with a completely redesigned Smart Hub. The 2013 Smart Hub provides consumers with an easy way to organise and navigate personalised content through an updated interface and dynamic thumbnail previews within three newly designed panels:

  • Apps: Easily access and edit downloaded Samsung Apps
  • Photos, Videos & Music: Access personal content stored on various AllShare devices in one place
  • Social: View popular video content shared across social channels

The new Apps panel of Samsung’s Smart Hub allows users to display up to 30 app icons on one page, which users can customise so that they can access their favorite apps easily.

In addition to the 2013 Smart Hub, Samsung will provide more high quality content for consumers in Singapore with:

  • mio TV PLAY – Brought to you by SingTel, the mio TV PLAY app brings users explosive box office movies, as early as three months from cinematic release, to the comfort of your own home
  • Toggle – Toggle is your personal entertainment service that goes beyond the television set, bringing entertainment, news and information to viewers across multiple devices. The service is available online, on smartphones, tablets and connected TVs, allowing viewers to stay engaged wherever they are
  • TV Anywhere – The StarHub TV Anywhere App gives users access to a Video-on-Demand content and Live TV channel streaming service on Samsung Smart TVs. Users will have access to content such as ‘live’ sports events, movies, TV series and top Asian dramas

“TV Anywhere allows our StarHub TV subscribers to view their favourite channels across multiple screens, according to their subscription plan,” said Lin Shu Fen, Vice President of Home Solutions, StarHub. “By allowing our customers to access StarHub TV content without the need for a set-top box, the app provides a true TV Anywhere experience on their Samsung Smart TVs. In addition, it allows us to reach out to a bigger group where any owner of Samsung Smart TVs can rent titles from our on-demand store which contains over 500 hours of marquee Asian content by household names such as TVB.”

“With the upcoming Toggle connected TV app, viewers have one more exciting way to enjoy MediaCorp’s extensive portfolio of dramas, original productions and our quality selection of movies and series, both on linear channels and on-demand. This is in addition to online, smartphone and tablet devices that Toggle is available on today,” added William Lee, Senior Vice President, Convergent Media, MediaCorp Pte Ltd.

Enhanced Smart Interaction for the Most Advanced TV Experience Ever

In 2012, Samsung launched the industry’s first TVs with voice and motion controls. This year, Samsung is giving consumers a more instinctive and intuitive way to navigate and control the Smart TVs.

With Smart Interaction, the new Samsung Smart TV’s Motion Control technology can now recognise two-handed gestures. Apart from navigating and moving the cursor, users can now flip pages, zoom in and out of pictures, ‘Like’ a social media posting and rotate an image – all with their bare hands. There is also an upgrade on its Voice Control feature, where it now recognises 390 commands, compared to 55 commands in the previous models.

New in 2013, Samsung’s Face Recognition feature enables the TV to automatically scan and recognise a user’s face to log into Smart Hub and Skype accounts faster than before. With an enhanced recognition rate, users can simply log in by standing in front of the TV’s built-in camera, all without the hassle of typing in their ID and password.

Samsung Evolution Kit — Delivering Smart TV Feature Updates

Samsung is delivering on its promise to offer its customers a way to stay up-to-date with the latest technology. Available on the ES7500 and above 2012 Smart TV models, the Evolution Kit offers both software and hardware updates that include access to the 2013 Smart Hub and other Smart features, and upgrades the TV’s dual-core processor to quad-core, resulting in faster internal processing speeds.

Designs come to life on Samsung Smart TVs

In collaboration with Raffles Design Institute (RDI) for Samsung Fashion Steps Out (FSO) 2013, Samsung will be displaying the colourful and vibrant designs created by students from RDI on its 2013 Smart TV lineup at three upcoming roadshows along Orchard Road. These vibrant and effervescent designs, created on the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 LTE, can also be seen adorned on trees along Orchard Road from 28 March 2013 to 12 May 2013.

With increasing consumer demand for larger screen sizes, specifically in Singapore, where the proportion of LED TV sales of 46″ and larger screen TVs have more than tripled since 2010 with almost 61,680 larger LED TVs sold in 2012[1] , Samsung will also expand the number of models available in 60 inches” and above.

Highlights of the 2013 features include:

  • Samsung Smart Hub: Three intuitive panels help consumers manage and navigate different types of content, which are displayed as thumbnail images so it is easy to select and watch the content on the big screen.
  • Advanced Smart Interaction: Available on the F7500, F8000 and F8500, use everyday language and casual gestures to find content or command and control the TV.
  • Content and device convergence with Multi-Screen features: Samsung’s Smart View allows consumers to move their content seamlessly between devices in real-time; AllShare connects the TV to compatible mobile devices wirelessly and creates a smart centre for media and whole-home automation. Users can also mirror their TV content on compatible Samsung GALAXY tablets and phones.
  • Evolution Kit: Owners of flagship Samsung 2012 Premium TVs from ES7500 upwards will be able to update their TVs with the latest Smart TV features simply by slotting in this Evolution Kit without having to buy a new TV.

Samsung Series 6 F6800 LED TV

With the F6800 LED TV, enjoy stunning Full HD 1080p in both 2D and 3D modes and picture quality that is crisp, clear, and breathtakingly life-like. Equipped with Samsung’s Wide Colour Enhancer Plus, the F6800 LED TV enhances hues by expanding the colour range for a more vivid experience especially beneficial when watching older film productions and non high-definition content.

Designed to look like a modern work of art, the F6800 LED TV delivers a premium look and feel. Through a transparent frame, the sides of the TV looks like it were constructed from a sheet of glass. Measuring just 0.24 inches, the narrow bezel encasing the screen is super slim and allows the TV to merge smoothly with any surrounding area. An ambitious new design for 2013, the TV stands on two branch shaped posts, which uses tension support to give it strength while also minimising space.

The F6800 LED TV is available in 40″, 46″, 50″, 55″ models at an RRP of $1,599, $2,149, $2,649, $3,499 respectively.

Samsung Series 7 F7500 LED TV

The F7500 LED TV features Samsung’s Ultra Clear Panel, offering Full HD 1080p and stunning picture quality even with reflective light. Ultra Clear Panel absorbs most ambient light, virtually eliminates reflections and also helps make colours more vibrant with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow detail.

With a Clear Motion Rate of 800Hz which offers a stunning level of motion-clarity, the F7500 LED TV is also equipped with a quad-core processor so consumers can toggle between apps, online services and on-air TV quickly and easily without missing a moment of their favourite entertainment.

The innovative design of the F7500 LED TV, a CES 2013 Design and Engineering honoree, exudes an air of sophistication that adds elegance to any home.

For an exceptional picture quality, the new F8000 LED TV is equipped with Micro Dimming Ultimate which offers brighter, more vibrant pictures with richer colours, deeper black levels and higher contrasts.

A CES 2013 Design and Engineering honoree, the stunningly crafted F8000 LED TV exudes a luxurious futuristic feeling with a pristine black mirror encasing the back of the TV and a contrasting polished glass finish at the front. With the flat surface of the screen securely joined to the curved silver stand at the bottom, the F8000 LED TV looks as if it is floating from the front where the arc stand is barely visible.

The F8000 LED TV is available in 55″, 60″, 65″ and 75″ models at an RRP of $4,899, $8,999 and $13,999 respectively.

Samsung Series 8 F8500 LED TV

An integrated retracting camera subtly complements the overall design.

The F8500’s premium design does not compromise on picture quality or performance. Similar to the F8000 LED TV, the premium F8500 LED TV features a quad-core processor for seamless multi-tasking.
