Author/Designer/Actor, Twinkle Khanna at the launch of Samsung QLED 8K TV at DLF Emporio, New Delhi said, “I remember the days when we would have to build cabinets to hide our TVs because they would be big. It’s great that Samsung has been listening to its consumers and technology finally looks pleasing to the eye. I love the fact that this TV is thin and smart enough to blend into the wall – it can actually mimic the design of the wall you put it on. I can’t wait to upgrade from my current Samsung 4K TV to an 8K one. I am going to use it as my personal photo album.”
HC Hong, President and CEO, Samsung SouthWest Asia said, “The very first product by Samsung Electronics was a television. At that time, we used to be newcomers. Today, we are tagged as the world’s number one TV manufacturers. Our aim remains the same – it’s to innovate and give our consumers the very best. We have the world’s largest mobile factory in Noida, India. We have the world’s largest experiential centre in Bangalore, India. Bangalore is also the place for our first cinema LED screen. And today, we are proud to present the world’s first 8K QLED television to our Indian friends.”
When asked by Khanna which Hindi movies he likes to watch, Hong said, “Let’s see – I liked 3 Idiots. I also enjoyed PK. Today, I heard about Padman – your husband’s movie. I am very excited to watch it.”
Samsung's 2019 QLED TV line-up comes packed with the power of Bixby along with other voice assistants like Google Assistant to access content through voice commands. These TVs are designed to double up as interactive wall feature that blends in with the interiors. The TVs will be available at all Samsung Smart Plazas, leading consumer electronic stores and across online platforms, including Samsung`s official online store Samsung Shop, Samsung said.
