Samsung launched its new OLED TVs at the 2013 International CES and the 55-inch KN55F9500 with its high picture quality and revolutionary Multi-View feature seems promising.
The KN55F9500 OLED TV features voice control and streaming media and it is also the first to feature Samsung Multi-View, which uses 3D display technology to show two viewers (each wearing active 3D glasses) different content simultaneously.
The Multi-View feature works on both 2D and 3D, and even delivers stereo audio to the viewer with the help of tiny speakers built into the glasses. There's also Smart Evolution Kit Connector support, and a new version of Motion Control gesture recognition that can better track hands held at up to 45-degree angles. However, the 3D glasses are optional and can be purchased for $99.
The Multi-View feature will be welcomed by most, especially couples as one partner can watch his favorite sport on ESPN while the other half can enjoy a movie or a television show on any other channel.
The KN55F9500 Smart TV engine will pack in a A15 Quad-Core 1.35GHz processor.
Samsung also compared the technology of its OLED TVs with LG's OLED White TV technology per a CNET report.
"LG's White OLED system uses color filters to give you the RGB spectrum, making it closer to an LCD as the white OLED acts as a kind of backlight. In comparison, Samsung uses three OLEDs of red, blue, and green per pixel, which could mean an increase in the number of colors it is capable of," noted the CNET report.
Availability and pricing of the Multi-View KN55F9500 are yet to be announced. The TV looks promising with what it has got on offer. However, with competition from rivals like LG, it remains to be seen if Samsung's revolutionary feature can tilt the scales in the company's favor.
