Televisions are one of the few pieces of tech that, though they get better with each subsequent iteration, they are all still eyesores from an interior design standpoint. But Samsung has just taken a big step forward toward fixing that with their new lineup of 2018 QLED TVs.
They’re calling the technology ‘Ambient Mode,’ which allows the television to blend in with its surroundings by displaying an image mimicking the wall behind it, instead of just appearing as a big black rectangle. It can also be set up to concurrently display pertinent information, such as weather reports or the news, or play music of your choice. To complete the sleek illusion, Samsung has also given the TVs their One Visible Connection – a single super slim wire that combines both power and AV into one barely noticeable cable, enabling you to plug into outlets up to nearly 50 feet away. The TVs also feature dynamic backlighting, Bixby voice control, and range in size from 55 to 88 inches. Prices start at $2,199.
