We take a look at Samsung’s stunning 2023 range of TVs unveiled at CES

Tech Guide took a sneak peek at the Samsung 2023 range of Neo QLED and OLED TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

At this year’s show, Samsung’s main CES booth at the Las Vegas Convention Centre was centred around the story of connectivity and sustainability and had hardly any of Samsung’s products.

The stand was showing off some near-future technology like in-car innovations as well as the new SmartThings Hub which can bring together a household of smart home products into one platform to make it easier to control.

The Samsung TVs and appliances were on show inside two huge ballrooms at Caesar’s Palace and that’s where Tech Guide went to take a closer look at the exciting new range.

The flagship of Samsung’s TV range is still the Neo QLED range which is available in 4K and 8K models.

Onboard is Samsung’s proprietary algorithm for its Auto HDR Remastering.

It uses AI and deep learning to analyse the image in real time and turn Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) content into High Dynamic Range (HDR) content.

The upscale was really impressive as was the picture quality and brightness of native 4K and 8K content.

There is even more 8K content on the way with interest from streaming services to offer 8K in the near future.

The new TVs are also a Smart Things Hub so it can sync devices for easier monitoring and control.

You’ll also be able to see a 3D map view which so you can have a bird’s eye view of your home and all the Smart Things devices at a glance.

A new feature called ChatTogether allows users can take part in a live chat group to react and share their thoughts with people watching the same content.

ConnectTime makes it possible to take your video calls from connected devices on the TV and then transfer it back to a smartphone when you move away from the screen.

Samsung is also expanding its 2023 OLED range with three sizes – 55, 65 and the new ultra large 77-inch models.

The Samsung OLED TVs we saw were super thin – the 77-inch model is thinner than your phone and 65-inch is the thickness of an Australian $2 coin.

All of Samsung’s OLED TVs have Quantum Dot technology onboard.

That’s the same technology developed for the company’s Neo QLED TVs, along with Neural Quantum processors to maintain the core strengths of the OLED technology while improving brightness and colour accuracy.

These screens also have a 144Hz refresh rate and inherit all of Samsung’s smart features including the Samsung Gaming Hub.

And for the first time Samsung OLEDs will include AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro certification to make it a high-quality option for gaming.

Samsung’s Premiere short throw projector will now be available in an 8K model and support a maximum screen size of 150-inches.

One of the hits of last year’s show was Samsung’s portable Freestyle projector.

The new model is even better and has a new Smart Edge Blending features which means users can connect two of the devices and watch content in a ultrawide 21:9 configuration.

So if you have one you can invite a friend over to watch the game or a movie on an even grander and wider scale.

And you can’t even tell where the pictures meet.

Set up is a breeze – aim both Freestyles at the wall and take a photo at the markings created by the projectors and the SmartThings app magically blends them together in a few seconds.
