Samsung Details Pricing & Availability for 2018 QLED 4K Ultra HD TV Lineup

Additionally, Samsung said its massive "The Wall" TV will become available in August. But the capability that's sure to excite the design-minded set is one that no television has done before. There are some similarities across the entire range, like Ambient Mode where the display will mimic the wall color or pattern behind it (like a chameleon) so the TV blends into your living room rather than looking like a black mirror when there's no programming running to it.

The rather thin "One Invisible Connection" cable can be up to 15 meters in length (that's almost 50 feet) and can be neatly tucked away in carpet crevices and the like.

This year, you're going to see bigger televisions and at times TVs that you don't even know are there - that's the vision from Samsung who have just announced their 2018 TV range in NY. Said QLEDs will be available in sizes from 65- to 88 inches. The Q8F and Q9F models share what Samsung is calling a Direct Full Array backlight, which means you can expect better black levels. An impressive framework of precisely controlled LEDs delivers pristine contrast across all images displayed onscreen.

Bixby is also integrated into the new TV line, letting consumers control their screens by just speaking to them.

This week, the Big 12 Tournament will commence, and this year feels like anyone could come away with the title. Baylor and Kansas State are among the Last Four Byes, which means they will avoid play-in games.

All the models have Ambient Mode.

One cable - up to 15 meters (49 feet) long - is all it takes to link the TV and AV data, and is also a help to breaking the cord clutter that every home suffers from today. The cable is designed using Teflon, which is resistant to high heat and known for its durability. Comprising five series, Samsung's TV offering this year will be smarter than ever before thanks to the inclusion of its Bixby voice assistant and the SmartThings platform. The TV will understand spoken natural language and quickly search for content, and with will be able to can sync their Galaxy smartphone to their TV for easier setup and access to functions including program guides, remote control and video sharing between screens.

You'll find that new DFA technology on only the high-end models - the Q9F and Q8F - but QLED should be improved all around across the range. Samsung still hasn't given up on pushing curved TVs, as each series will be sold in both flat and curved versions. "Premium UHD models are the NU8500 and NU8000, and UHD models are the NU7100 (75", 65", 55", 50", 43", 40") and NU7300 (65", 55").

The company also highlighted its modular design - which Samsung first touted this year at CES 2018 with The Wall and available finally later this year -which means TVs can be shaped in nearly any dimension needed, with each component, or screen, powered through micro LED technology. The company said the latest models will help Samsung tap deeper into the premium market, claiming its TVs accounted for around half of the market in the segment past year. These models reflect consumer demand for larger screen televisions for a more impactful, immersive home viewing experience. Starting with the United States on March 18, the TVs will reach major markets. For more information on Samsung's TV lineup, please visit
