Is Augmented Reality(AR) And Virtual Reality (VR) Is Different ? : Find Answer Here

07:02 Add Comment
With so much exciting innovation happening in smartphone technology, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are often confused, even though they have very different practical functions and uses. We've broken down the main differences so that you know the most important things about your new favorite phone features.



What Is Virtual Reality:

Virtual Reality places you in a virtual, computer-generated world. This requires you to wear a headset, either placing custom built-in screens in front of each eye, or by using a VR-enabled smartphone like the ASUS ZenFone AR. The phone clips into the headset and presents your eyes with a split screen view that gives virtual reality its rich, 3D perspective.

How it works:

Apps can determine when you move your head in any direction using the accelerometer in your phone, and GPS locates you in the virtual reality you’re seeing. And with headphones, you can hear sounds as if they are coming from different directions, giving you a completely immersive experience and making you feel like you've been transported somewhere new.

What can you do with it?

VR is a great technology for experiencing events and seeing places that you can’t physically get to. For example, it can be used for watching a virtual concert, walking through a distant museum, and visiting pretty much anywhere in the world. All this is made possible by Google’s Daydream platform.

There are heaps of Virtual Reality apps in the Google Play Store, but if you want to ease your way in and experience VR for the first time, check out Google Cardboard which contains lots of demos and mini-games to help you find your virtual bearings for the first time.

Now What Is Augmented Reality The ?

Augmented Reality superimposes the virtual world onto the real one through a smartphone screen, such as the ZenFone AR, or through wearable tech such as Microsoft’s Hololens. Technically speaking, Augmented Reality projects content over the real world, whereas Mixed Reality content interacts with the real world. However, as these technologies become more popular, “Augmented Reality” is becoming a catch-all term for both augmented and mixed reality technologies.

How it works?

Google’s Tango platform supports AR experiences and refers to the set of sensors and computer vision software that enables AR apps. Essentially, the phone has to be able to “see” and understand spaces like humans do. To do this it must be able to track motion, perceive where it is in relation to the physical surroundings, and perceive depth.

What can you do with it?

In terms of gaming, AR allows you to play with other people in the real world because you can see and interact with them. You can find a host of amazing apps to check out on the Google Play Tango Store, but perhaps one of the coolest apps is Dinosaurs Among Us, which brings incredible, 3D dinosaurs into your kitchen, office, or wherever else you want them.

VR and AR are opening up a vast array of new experiences for technology lovers, so take the plunge and try it for yourself! So this is all about what you need to know about Augmented Reality(AR) And Virtual Reality (VR) Differences. If you like share it and have any query do comment below. Thank you for reading.

Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA : Good Daily User Device

07:30 Add Comment
Asus has been introducing many laptop models along with their smartphone series. Asus slowly but steadily raising up in top line laptop manufacturers in Indian market. Asus has introduce diversified product portfolio with High end, mid-range and budget friendly product line-up. This time we have received Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA for review. We will look into more in details in sometime.

Asus ZenBook Flip UX360 as the name tells 360, this device is combination of tablet and laptop brought into single device. What it means? Well it means this device have touchscreen lid that can flip around. 



Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA Design:

Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA is not as sleek, stylish and light weight as their predecessor’s line-up. This device have touchscreen lid and keyboard that, they have to rest against each other when the two halves are flipped around. When lid is flipped to a certain angle it will activate tablet mode automatically, yes unless you manually turn it off.

Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA have 13.3 inches with 16:9 spect ratio LED backlit Full HD (1920x1080) 60Hz Glare Touchscreen. On the back side of the lid Asus have their logo in the middle. Well on other end of the device have all connectivity options. On left hand side you will find USB 3.0 port, sd card slot, status LED followed by volume rocker buttons and power button respectively. While on right side you can see power inlet, USB 3.0 port followed by type C port micro HDMI port and 3.5 mm audio jack respectively. Asus provide a USB Ethernet dongle and another Micro-HDMI to full-size HDMI adapter in the box, which are both much needed for smart TV and other devices connectivity.


While in the tablet mode you can still use all switches and connectivity ports in the device. Speakers are at the bottom of the device. Asus ZenBook Flip UX360 is bit difficult to grip since it is heavier and keyboard deck have sharp edges that make is bit uncomfortable to hold it, especially while you are using Asus ZenBook Flip UX360 as tablet mode. 



Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA have Asus zenmark concentric circle design on metallic unibody of itself which look decent. Just one thing more Asus should have added is backlit keyboard which is more useful during the low light or night time. But keyboard get deactivated automatically when you flip hinge to certain angle.

Well while using tablet mode Windows automatically flip the display as per the device orientation. Switching between laptop and tablet mode totally seamless, though the bulk of the ZenBook Flip makes tablet mode comfortable only if you can rest it on your lap or knees. Overall thickness is 13.9mm and weight is 1.3kg which is great for a laptop, but not for a tablet.

Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA Specs and Performance:

The screen has a resolution of 1920x1080 that is Full HD with 13 Inches of screen\tablet size. Intel’s HD Graphics 515 comes integrated into the processor, which should be enough for everyday tasks. The screen is bright and crisp, but because of the glossy surface we have to pump the brightness up to compensate for reflections. Thanks to the CPU’s dedicated video acceleration hardware we have never faced any issues playing HD, Full HD and 4K content on this device. There’s also Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1, plus a 720p webcam integrated with this device.

Asus launched the ZenBook Flip in India with an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor. Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor is one of Intel’s low-power Core M models in the sixth-generation. There’s 4GB of RAM and either a 128GB or a 512GB SSD - our review unit had the 512B SSD. The ZenBook Flip is quick to boot smoothly for us with 6 seconds of boot time. Programs launch without any fuss, and heavy operations are carried out easily thanks to SSD integrated with this device

You get Windows 10 Home basic preloaded with Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA. Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA have a bunch of Asus apps including Asus WebStorage, Asus Giftbox, and several small utilities to control things. One new addition is Asus HiPost, which intercepts anything you copy to the Windows clipboard and syncs it to an Android phone running the same app which doesn’t seems to be of much use.

The speakers turned out to be capable of producing considerable volume levels. While on Voices in videos came out clean and distinct, with minimal distortion. 

Pricing And Final Words:

ZenBook Flip UX360CA 128GB SSD is available on Amazon at 56000/- INR while 512GB variant is available at 96000/- which seems to be bit overpriced. If you want some good hybrid device with performance upfront than this is the good choice for you. SDD perform well and reduce boot-up and IO time so it perform any task. The games are also playable well with minimal graphic on board. For normal users who want laptop and tablet both this is the best choice for you to use. Just one time heavy load on pocket. 

So this is all about ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360CA. If you have any questions or query do let us know in comment section below. If you like this then share on your social media clicking on button below. Stay tuned for more. Thank you for the reading.

Asus Zenfone Live : Compact And Light Weight

10:31 Add Comment
In this article we are going to review Asus Zenfone Live. Which is easy, compact and light weight device that we have received till now. As per Asus this device is named as Live, specially for Apps like Facebook and Instagram where we required some quality video and pcis to upload. But for a given price range Asus have Redmi 4A and Redmi 4 as strong contender in the market. Let's have look what Asus has packed in Zenfone Live.


Build And Design:

It has become a common trend to upload what's going on live on social media platform like Facbook, Instagram and other social apps these days. But the thing keep bothering users is quality of uploaded video or picks. So here Asus has tried and made an attempt for capture market for this strong hold. But frankly speaking this is a rally big disappointment from Asus this time. Even though build quality of the device is very premium and device have metallic unibody design. Zenfone live looks more less similar to iPhone.


On the front of the screen device, starting from top Asus Zenfone Live have LED notification light followed by LED flesh, speaker grill followed by 5 megapixel camera with laser and ambient light sensor. Blow it device have 5 inches IPS LCD display. At the bottom of the device it have 3 capacitive buttons.


Well starting from the top of the device it have 3.5m  audio jack and noise cancellation mic. While on the bottom it have speaker, Micro USB charging port and mic. Device is powered by DTS sound enhancement drivers for excellent sound experience the same as Asus Zenfone Ultra.


On the back panel of the device is made of fully metallic unibidy which have camera and single tone LED flash in left side top most corner, followed by Asus logo on the center below.


On the left side of the device have SIM card trey which support hybrid SIMS and on right hand side it have volume rocker button and power button.


Overall device looks very premium and feels very light weight at the same time. Device screen size is also 5 inches which is best for single hand users.


Specs And Performance: 

Asus Zenfone Live comes with 5 inches IPS LCD display supporting 720p(HD) resolution. Colors produce by this device is very sharp and have good extreme viewing angles. Display look bright in sunlight and screen is visible clearly at the maximum brightness in direct sunlight. Device runs on Android 6.0.1 that is old version of Android OS. But looking at the other device in this price range this tend looks common. Asus have their own UI called ZenUI running on top of Android OS, which provide lot of customization to the users. Device also comes with preinstalled blotwares including that of Asus apps too. But here you do the work around as uninstall or disable the apps that you are not going to use.

Asus Zenfone Live comes with 2GB of RAM memory and 16 GB of ROM memory which is disappointment from Asus end. Since 16 GB of internal memory, user hardly get 10 GB for actual usage. On the other hand device support hybrid SIM hence you cannot use dual SIM. Asus should have given separate memory card slot in Asus Zenfone Live. As long as RAM size is considered it is still manageable. The downfall for this device is Media-core Snapdragon 400 SOC which inspite of having decent specs, device does not able to perform well. Asus Zenfone Live comes with 4 core processors having 1.2 GHz speed, supported by Adreno 305 GPU. This is just entry level processor which bring down the device performance and processing capabilities. You can not perform heavy multitasking on this device and device tends to heatup once you start with gaming or task that require heavy processing power. 

On gaming front we have tested basic games like NOVA legacy which is handle well by device like Asus Zenfone 3 Max powered by Snapdragon 430 SOC, but in case of Zenfone Live it started well in beginning but after loading the game we can see the constant frame drops in the device. As mentioned earlier processor is the downfall for this device. This decision of Asus for selecting this processor has affected all aspect of device.

Well while using this device call reception was very much good. We can hear the voice of other person on the call loud and clear. Even noise cancellation mic does it's job well. Even while using the speaker for the call produce sound well but produce some distortion during the high volume voices. On the connectivity area device have all basic connectivity option like Bluetooth, WiFi, Hotspot, 4G VoLTE and so on. It does not have NFS and IR blaster which commonly comes with flagship devices. 

Well when it comes to camera Asus has disappointed us again. Even thought they made this phone for photography this smartphone not even at par what it meant for. It sports a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus and a 5MP front camera with f/2/2 aperture, 82 degree wide angle and a LED flash.

Well if we talk about front camera it is 5 megapixel front shooter with Laser sensor and LED flash. LED flash is little more intensive for your eyes when you are in dark room or place, otherwise it does it's job well what it  meant for. Images taken are usually good but when it's comes to low light even though using a flash images are average.

Device takes good images in natural light condition but start to lag when you use the camera for long. Since device is equipped with weak processor the image quality affected very much. Even though Asus pixel master try to compensate for producing some quality output but in low light case and indoor photography it fails to do so.

Here are some camera samples:

NOTE: Click on the image to view in it's original size





Well if we talk about battery life, its 2650 mAh. The device goes well with it. It last for almost a day with extreme usage that device can handle. Charging is also fast enough. Device get's charged within One and half hours. If you talk about the price range of this device seems to be bit overpriced as per configuration. Asus Zenfone Live priced at 9,999/- INR which is roughly around 155 UDS.

Final Words :

Well as per our opinion Asus Zenfone Live is really not expected product from Asus. If Asus has chosen some good processor like Snapdragon 435 still perform well for this price and specs. Frankly speaking you want some good quality and value for your money then this is not your cup of tee.

So here is all about newly launched Asus Zenfone Live. If you have any query then comment below. If you like do share on social platform using buttons blow the article. Stay tuned for more. Thank you for reading.

Zenfone 3 Max Review

05:51 Add Comment
To address the issue of battery life that is associated with almost all android devices Asus has introduced Zenfone Max series. This series provide user with an extra battery juice for lasting it longer than usual. Last year we have seen Asus Zenfone Max (2015) introduce with 5000 mAh battery. Not only that but Asus kept that series to the low and affordable price range under 10K.

After few month Asus come up with advance version of Asus Zenfone Max 2016 which was same as it’s predecessor, only difference is packed with more powerful processor serving long battery life. Now with Zenfone 3 series they have brought this to mid-range series. With their Zenfone 3 series Asus has again introduced new device that we are reviewing today here named as Zenfone 3 Max (ZC553KL).

Also Read : Reasons To Select Zenfone 3 Max As Your Smartphone Device

Zenfone_3_Max_(ZC553KL)
Zenfone 3 Max (ZC553KL)

Asus ZenFone 3 Max design and build :

Asus has launched Zenfone 3 Max in 2 variants they are : 
The design of this device is the first element that attract your attention.Device is very slick and have round curved edges and it's metal aluminum unibody provide sturdy feel when you hold the device. It's look and feel premium and the grip is ergonomic having buttons lined up nicely against our thumb. 

This device have 5.5 inches Full HD(1920 x 1080) IPS display. Device have vivid and sharp display, produce crisp and sharp images and icons. You can see screen clearly even in direct sunlight. Zenfone 3 Max have very thin bezels which make the device easy hold and use. Even if you think screen size is too large to handle, you can always user one hand mode. The only thing bit disappointing about this device is there is no scratch protection on the device screen, which is usually seen for the device in this price range.


On the front top of the device it have 3.5 mm audio jack. Font 8MP wide angle camera and light ambient sensor. On left hand side corner it have LED notification light. 


On the other hand back of the device, it have 16MP rear camera accompanied with dual tone dual LED flash light and laser sensor. Just blow the rear camera Asus has placed fingerprint sensor. Beside back of the device is made of metal aluminum unibody provide good grip, but sometime even though it make device bit sleepery from the hand.


Well on the front bottom of the device it have Micro-USB charging slot 2.0 which is kind disappointment for us. Beside charging slot device have Mono speakers that producing really loud sound that can be heard in busy areas too. The phone ships with a headset, a 10W charger, a data cable, and an OTG cable. You also get 100GB of Google Drive space free for two years as a promotion.

Specification And Performance :

Let's start with screen. The device have very sharp IPS Full HD display panel which produce vivid and sharp colors even in direct sunlight. Zenfone 3 Max is hybrid SIM device which means you can either use it as dual SIM cards or single SIM with memory card with 4G VoLET support. If you use memory card you can expand external storage upto 128 GB. Zenfone 3 Max comes with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. Zenfone 3 Max equipped with Android 6.0.1 that is Marshmallow running Asus customized ZenUI 3 on top of it. 

Processor of this device is seems to be the weakest point. We were expecting this device will be equipped with Snapdragon 615 but it actually packed with Snapdragon 430 SOC. This means you can experience the stutter or lags when it comes to famous gaming titles or heavy multitasking. But gain with Snapdragon 615 comes with issues of heavy heating problem this must be the cause Asus has avoided using that SOC. Even though Asus has tried to compassionate for using entry level processor by providing game Genie to improve performance of the device. But that too does not seems to be helping much.

You can use it to answer incoming calls, launch the camera app, or take a picture - but you can’t use it to lock apps. The bigger issue here is that fingerprint recognition was often not quick. It did misread fingerprints, which is flagged by a slight vibration, but it seemed more to do with the hardware not being able to authenticate fingerprints quickly. The issue was intermittent but was really frustrating when we ran into it.

Zenfoen 3 Max have single-band Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, FM radio, and GPS. There’s 4G support on Band 1, 3, 5, 8, and 40 in India as well as VoLTE. All connectivity medium works well on the device. Even 4G and VoLTE works very smoothly without any problems.

Let's check some benchmarking scores of the device:



Above are the result of Antutu 6.2(On left side) and GeekyBench4 which also seems kind of average that is above the entry level processor can perform. As we can check Nenamark score for FPS (Frames per second ) it plays and records video very nicely and smoothly. We hardly find any lags in that case. But yes if you want to play 2K or 4K video in this device you better use SW decoder in MX player.


Camera :

When it comes to the camera then Asus has done remarkable job in it's Zenfone 3 series. Asus has revamped the camera quality form their last 2 series and improved on it. It provide it's own camera module software called Pixelmaster does some excellent job when it comes to clicking photos.

Videos look really good thanks to the vibrant display, and the phone handles videos just fine, at up to 1080p. Audio performance is particularly good through wired and wireless headphones. The volume can get really loud with punchy bass. The AudioWizard app lets you play around with equalizer settings in order to fine-tune the sound. There’s electronic video stabilization for video but only at 720p resolution.

Asus Zenfone 3 Max comes with 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP wide angle front facing camera which takes really good pictures.

Here are some samples:

Battery Life:

Battery life is what this device is meant for. It provide the good battery life but not as good as it was expected. Since this device is using entry level processor, Asus Zenfone 3 Max was expected to be perform much better. For heavy user battery will last for more a day, and for moderate and low usage users 2 days. Standby time for this device is excellent.

Pricing:

Asus Zenfone 3 Max is being price at 17,999 INR in India. This device available in both online as well as offline. But the price is another backlog for this device. Since you can get device with higher performance SOC at this price range. Even if you compared this price to it's predecessor then too this price range seems odd, can say kindly high priced device.

Verdict :

Asus Zenfone 3 Max has some really good features in terms Display, Camera, Audio,Battery Life and call quality. The only thing disappointing is processor and heavy multitasking. Even though they have used entry level processor they should have priced this device some where in 10K-15K range. 

Pros Of Zenfone 3 Max :
  • Sharp , clear and vivid display.
  • Good Design and build quality.
  • Excellent camera quality.
  • Good audio quality.
  • Good Battery life
Cons Of Zenfone 3 Max :

  • Over priced device.
  • Lags and Stutters on gaming and heavy multitasking.
  • Hybrid SIM slot used.
  • No gorilla glass protection.
  • Fingerprint sensor bit iffy.

Well overall we have faced only one glitch while using this device that this device do get heatup while charging which is usual case with Asus fast charging. It will take around 2 Hours to charge the device completely from Zero to Hundred percent.

Honor 6X Review : Dual Lense Camera Device

00:16 1 Comment
Recently Dual lense camera setting has become the trend in smartphone world. After success of Honor 5 and Honor 8 now Honor has launched dual camera setup device called Honor 6X here we are going to review this device and share our experience with you guys. So let's get started.

If we talk about Honor 6X according to the price range it have solid contenders in the market to compete with like Moto 4G and strong contender like Redmi Note 4. Here I will discusss about various aspects of Honor 6X offer. Let's get start with it.


Design and Build :

Honor 6X seems to be design very well and slip and have premium finish. Metal unibody case with stylish curve make appearance of the device attractive and unique. But device grip also differ with you  way of handling it. Device can easily slip out of your hands and curs are nice for look but for grip doesn't help much. Especially people having sweat problem in their hand, I will suggest them to buy one back cover for it.



Honor 6X comes with 5.5 inches of screen having full HD display with good viewing angle, provide good color for user. Text and icon are display and videos playback is very good as well. Color display brightness is adequate for outdoor usage and screen is visible very well to operate the device in direct sunlight.



Honor 6X have Hybrid SIM tray which can accommodate dual SIM cards or one SIM and memory card in second slot. on the right of the device have volume rocker and power button which is standard design we have seen in Honor's devices. Well coming to bottom of the device have Micro USB port for charging the device (bit downside of Honor 6X) along with microphone and mono speakers. On the top of the device it have  mm audio jack and mic.



On the back of the device it have dual camera setup and single tone flash on right of the device. Below camera it have fast and smooth fingerprint sensor followed by Honor log and Huawei branding at the bottom of the back. On the front it have front camera folowed by light ambiant sensor and LED notification. Below the screen panel it have Honor logo.

Honor 6X Specification:

The Honor 6X has SoC developed by Huawei in-house, called the Kirin 655. This octa-core chip processor in four Cortex-A53 CPU cores running at 2.1GHz and four companion Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.7GHz. In terms of graphics, we have a Mali-T830 GPU. This SOC handle the games good enough. This device have rounding off to 57000 which considerably good score looking at the price point. Honor 6X have two variant having 3GB RAM with 32GB ROM and  4GB with 64GB ROM. We have rceived 4GB + 64GB version. 

Device runs on Android 6.0 still now which is bit disappointing since Honor should have release Android 7 for their users. Honoe 6X runs their custom UI called EMUI4.1 on top of Android provide their user with lot of customizations. Notification panel is divided in to 2 tabs notification zone and quick setting or toggle zone. It have single layered interface offer customization from boot animation to themes. The Emergency Services aka SOS menu lets you define a customized text message along with your location coordinates which can be sent to up to three contacts.

Honoe 6X have all the connectivity like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio and VoLTE. Device support hybrid SIM support. Device have all the sensor except that of gyroscope and also miss out dual band Wi-Fi ac which is common in devices now a days. Honor 6X also motivate user for their fitness and maintain their diet using inbuilt app that also count footsteps and also synch the data with Google fit app.

Honor 6X comes with lot of pre-installed app but fortunately it allow you to uninstall the third party apps.

Honor 6X Performance and Camera:

When it comes to performance all device said to be packed with good specs but performance in real-time differs a lot. Honor 6X have inbuilt memory optimizer and management software and it work amazingly well what it meant for. Even with their heavy EMUI honor 6X handle heavy games and application effectively without any lags. We have tried NOVA and Dead Effect 2 which are resource consuming games but works fine on device. 

We love the fact that device does not heatup even after heavy gaming and camera usage. The stock music and video players handle media well. The Honor 6X can play 1080p video files and FLAC audio files. You even get an audio enhancement features when you use headphones, although audio quality good in earphone but speaker audio quality need some improvement. Personally speaking play-list setting need lot of improvement in stock music player like play-list music songs are sorted alphabetically. User cannot create their own preferred play-list in stock Honor 6X music player. 

Now coming to camera section of Honor 6X it have dual lenses setup that allow the user to take object focused photos with Bokhe effect. The primary 12 MP sensor accompanied by 2MP  sensor. Primary sensor focused on object while secondary sensor focused on background to provide battery quality pictures. Rear camera perform well under normal light conditions but front as well as front camera drastically disappoint user under low light conditions. 

Below are some sample sample:

Frankly speaking about battery life it is decent enough to live with it for regular user and last less then a day for heavy user. Honor 6X packed with 3340 mAh of battery juice. Device have support fast charging but lacking for USB type C which seems to be common for devices these days.

Verdict:

Still device does not offer any special out of box feature. Just dual camera lenses is some feature Honor is offering, but on other hand low light condition user will be unhappy with the quality. Beside still Honor does not provide Android OS updates. Still there are many feature lacking that feel bit disappointing like Type C charging, camera performance in low light, hybrid SIM so no true dual SIM. Honor 6X variant 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage for 12999 while for 4GB and 64GB version you have to pay 14999 INR which not good bargain for this.

Beside Honor 6X have strong contender for competition for Redmi Not 4 and Moto 4G Plus. We give this device :

8 Out Of 10

Samsung Redefines TV Picture & Design With the Launch of QLED TV India

05:59 Add Comment
Samsung introduces world’s first TVs with 100% Colour Volume, HDR 2000 nits of brightness and one Remote Control and an innovative design solution called Invisible connection on New Delhi. Samsung Electronics today launched its flagship premium line-up of QLED TVs in India and showcased its innovative TV.



The ‘TV of Light’, a name given to Samsung QLED TV for its delivery of optimal brightness levels and stunning visual experience, is a new era of televisions and transforming the living room of tomorrow with its focus on the lifestyle TV concept. QLED TVs come with four global first innovations. They achieve 100% Colour Volume, the HDR 2000 functionality brings out hidden details, an Invisible Connection keeps your living room clutter free and One Remote Control offers an intuitive experience. The No Gap Wall-mount and the optional easel-like Studio Stand light up the aesthetics of your home. Fusing a slim, sleek and premium metal body with a nearly bezel-less display, QLED TVs set the tone for exceptional sophistication.



Samsung also showcased its newest innovation – The Frame. Instead of fading to black like a conventional TV, The Frame’s display transforms into a work of art, letting users select from a collection of more than 100 art pieces in 10 different categories, including landscape, architecture, wildlife, action, drawing and more. Paired with numerous options for art layouts and colours, as well as customizable accessory options including interchangeable bezels and an optional Studio Stand, it truly complements the user’s living space.

Here are some official words from Mr. HC Hong, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia, said, 
“Samsung’s QLED TVs are ushering in a new era of televisions, with innovations that are ahead of their time. These televisions reflect our global ambition. Samsung has been the world’s biggest television brand for the last 11 consecutive years. We are also India’s top television brand for the last decade and the most trusted brand in the consumer electronics category.”
 Mr. Rajeev Bhutani, Vice President, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung India said,

“QLED TV, powered by Samsung’s quantum dot technology, provides true-to-life images that no other TV can match. It empowers you to think about the television in a new way, bringing art and entertainment into new parts of your home. The QLED TV is as beautiful when turned off as it is when it’s on and will help us grow the demand for premium TVs as well as our market share in India even further,”

QLED TVs have been designed with the consumer in mind and focus on addressing three key consumer pain points through solutions known as Q Picture, Q Style and Q Smart. Lets see each concept in detail: 


Q Picture: Turns Light into Perfect Colour

The newly-announced QLED TV takes quantum dot technology to the next level with advancements in light efficiency, stability and a wider colour spectrum. With new metal alloy quantum dots, the QLED TV addresses all major aspects of picture quality, including Colour Volume, brightness, bold contrast and viewing angle. QLED TV can express accurate colour and achieves a 100% Colour Volume – the highest in the market today, earning accreditation from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), one of Europe’s largest technical-scientific associations.

QLED TV’s advanced HDR 2000 functionality allows users to see every hidden detail as it was meant to be seen, with no loss or distortion of colour. In addition, QLED TV’s rich, deep black levels and bold contrast provide a consistent viewing experience regardless of a room’s lighting.

Q Style: Design Your Space

The all-new Invisible Connection cable helps manage unsightly cords and clutter with a refined, single cord system. Consumers can now design their space with a single optical cable that brings all devices together, reclaiming the living room space once occupied by set-top boxes and external devices.

Samsung has also introduced the No Gap Wall-mount, which brings the TV flush against the wall, closer than ever before. For those who do not wish to mount their TV onto the wall, there is also a range of Samsung TV stands. Consumers can use the stylish metal stand that accompanies the TV or buy the Studio Stand that is designed like an easel and is an ideal accompaniment for any artist-inspired living space.

Q Smart: Control Devices and Content with One Remote Control

With the Samsung One Remote, consumers can control most connected TV devices with just one remote control. The enhanced Samsung One Remote now supports more devices and offers voice control capabilities across more Smart TV features.

In addition, Samsung’s latest Smart View App allows users to seamlessly share content from their smartphone to the TV. Users can enjoy a more personalized experience with the new ‘Smart Hub’ interface on the ‘Smart View’ app. The Smart View app supports both Android and iOS mobile devices.

QLED TVs will be launched in three series, Q9, Q8 and Q7, in 55 inches (138 cm), 65 inches (163 cm), 75 inches (189 cm) and 88 inches (223 cm), starting May 2017. QLED TVs will be priced between INR 3,14,900 and INR 24,99,900 in India.

Consumers can pre-book their QLED TVs between May 2 and May 21 to avail the special pre-book offer of a free Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Gold). For more details on the pre-book offer, consumers can visit: www.samsung.com/in/microsite/qledtv/
