Samsung Flaunts 55-inch ES9500 OLED TV & 75-inch ES9000 LED TV at IFA 2012

Till we see them on retail shelves, it is likely Samsung would showcase its ES9500 OLED TV displays with every available opportunity. And here they’re again at IFA 2012, where nine sets of the 55-inch OLED screens have been dangled from the ceiling to highlight their picture quality and slim form factor. But apart from OLED’s signature sexy-slim panels, deeper blacks, and supposedly ‘20 percent richer color pixels than LED TVs’, Samsung also took this opportunity to showcase their Multi View technology to visitors at the trade show. Available with the ES9500, Multi View essentially enables viewers to choose which of the two videos currently on the screen they want to watch. This is made possible by means of Samsung’s Smart Dual View active shutter 3D glasses, which comes equipped with integrated earphones as well.

Also on display is Samsung’s mammoth 75-inch LED TV, which comes furnished in a ‘luxurious rose-gold finish’. Despite its massive screen estate, the ES9000 actually sports a relatively slim 9mm bezel with enough space to hide a ‘push-up’ camera. Like the current ES8000 flagship model, the ES9000 will feature all of Samsung’s latest toys, and that includes Smart Interaction (voice control, motion control, and face recognition), Smart Content, and Smart Evolution. There’s no concrete word from the South Korean manufacturer as to when the ES9500 and ES9000 will land on our local shores, but rest assured we’ll keep you posted once we find out.

Samsung is also taking the opportunity to show off the world's first motion-controlled Angry Birds game for its Smart TV.

The first motion-controlled Angry Birds game is now available for Samsung Smart TV.

Samsung also has a 70-inch 4K ultra high-definition display on show at IFA 2012. There isn't a lot of news about it because it has been shown since quite a while back. Again, there's no word on when it'll hit the market.
