  • - Hey, it's Chris Welch to The Verge here at CES 2020,

  • and we just saw Samsung's line up of TVs

  • for the coming year.

  • Now the company has two very different ideas

  • for their flagships this time around.

  • On one side is the Ultra Premium fancy 8K TV

  • with a barely-there bezel,

  • and on the opposite end is what called the Sero,

  • which rotates vertically?

  • (upbeat music)

  • So the Sero is designed for Millennials and Gen Zers.

  • It's got a 43 inch screen.

  • And it's not Samsung's nicest TV,

  • it's QLED, so it's got quantum-dot HDR color, that's great.

  • But it's meant for mobile first customers,

  • so you pair it with your Android or iPhone.

  • It does support AirPlay too, which is really great to see.

  • And you can rotate it vertically and open any app you want.

  • Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat,

  • it's whatever might work vertically you can do on this TV

  • without ugly black bars on the sides.

  • So if you have a Samsung phone like the Galaxy S10

  • or the Note 10 you just rotate your phone

  • and the TV turns automatically.

  • If you have an iPhone you have to use the button

  • on the remote but you can still do it,

  • it just takes a bit more time.

  • So the Sero has a built in base at the bottom

  • which also houses a speaker system,

  • can't take it off, this TV cannot be wall mounted.

  • So that's one disadvantage.

  • Samsung says the Sero is part of its lifestyle TV lineup

  • with the frame and the Sero.

  • So it's designed to kind of blend in

  • with your surroundings and your decor.

  • So when you're not streaming TikTok videos,

  • you can put a clock on there or your personal photos

  • or even artwork.

  • There's no pricing or availability on the Sero just yet,

  • but it'll be here this year at some point

  • in the US and globally.

  • Now let's upgrade a bit to the ultra fancy 8K QLED TV.

  • Now you've probably heard about this by now,

  • it has barely-there bezels

  • that when you're standing at a normal distance,

  • you really can't even perceive,

  • it looks like just a floating display of glorious sharp,

  • 8K,

  • content.

  • But, therein lies the problem,

  • 8K still lack any real content at all.

  • So Samsung has a lot of AI upscaling

  • and other stuff that it says will improve 4K

  • to look more 8K-ish.

  • And so that's what you've got for now.

  • There are plans to maybe stream 8K at some point this year

  • but that's all still very much in the air.

  • So I wish Samsung would have put that same design,

  • those super slim bezels in a 4K TV,

  • which would have made a lot more sense

  • for your average customer.

  • But if you want the beautiful design,

  • they've got to buy into 8K.

  • So the Q950 comes in three screen sizes,

  • 65 inches, 75 inches and 85 inches,

  • and in all three, the front is covered by 99% display.

  • So it's your content and bezels that again,

  • you can barely even tell are there.

  • Just like the Sero they're still unknowns,

  • price, release date.

  • We don't know those details quite yet,

  • but we should know more in the coming months.

  • Now thankfully, there are a lot of good software features

  • coming to all of Samsung's 2020 TVs,

  • those includes Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa

  • built right in if you don't like Bixby,

  • now you can just choose one of those.

  • And also Samsung is putting a big focus on privacy.

  • It's telling you what data it collects

  • what it tracks about your viewing habits,

  • all of those things.

  • Trying to be more transparent

  • when people are more concerned

  • about this stuff than ever before.

  • We're out here in the neon lights

  • of Las Vegas all week long.

  • So keep it locked on The Verge's YouTube channel

  • for all the latest tech, TVs

  • and whatever else pops up at CES 2020.
