samsung’s latest QLED TV features fewer cords, a voice assistant and — most notably — samsung ambient mode. it’s cooler than it sounds.

TVs used to stand out like beautiful, alien boxes at the center of our home. somewhere along the way, their luster was lost, and now, TVs have largely become giant, techy eye-sores — the best of which are thin and sleek, and a little unnecessary. here, samsung has created a TV that is thin, sleek, practically invisible and potentially useful, but still not as useful as a computer.

it’s seamless wall-mount and lack of cords creates a simple frame for the home



with an easy-app assisted set-up, the new television becomes a shape-shifter, blending in with surrounding colors and patterns. the result, as you see here, is a nice, subtle focal point for your wall — a TV that doesn’t just take up unnecessary space when you’re not using it.
