Samsung Displays:

Per our previous Samsung article, they already released that they would launch their new CJ79 curved QLED monitor at IFA 2018 but more display news was released today at IFA 2018 Berlin. Samsung introduced the Q900R QLED 8K, complete with 8K AI Upscaling.

Another display Samsung announced is The Wall, a Micro LED screen designed for enterprise and out-of-home viewing environments. Complete with self-emitting display technology and a modular design, The Wall is fully-customizable to give users the freedom to decide how to incorporate the display in their space.

Samsung Mobile Devices:

The Galaxy Note9 announced at IFA is said to be Samsung’s most powerful smartphone yet. It was announced earlier this month in New York plus there are already commercials about the Galaxy Note9 but here’s what you need to know per Samsung. The phone comes in two internal storage options either 128GB or 512GB* which can be maximized to 1TB with a microSD card inserted. The Galaxy Note9’s 4,000mAh battery performance enables users to talk, text and play games and its intelligent camera helps users to capture the perfect shot each time. The S Pen, a trademark of the Galaxy Note series has incorporated a Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) function. Evolved into a Bluetooth remote control device, the S Pen now lets users take selfies and control presentation slides – even if the phone is 10 meters away.

Samsung also announced the new Galaxy Watch, which blends the look of a traditional watch with smart technology. Per Samsung the Galaxy Watch’s has an improved battery life of up to 80+ hours which eliminates the need for daily charging. The new addition of LTE connectivity allows users of the Galaxy Watch to now stay connected without being connected to a smartphone.

The Dual Cook Flex oven Samsung announced has brought increased cooking efficiency to meet varying dietary requirements or preferences. It has a flexible door and dual-cook function plus users can cater to each family member’s needs efficiently. The Cooking Guide gives consumers recommendations on which oven to use based on the food ingredients and the type of cooking.

In addition, its AI-powered laundry care Q-rator system serves as a personalized and intelligent assistant, while Laundry Planner minimizes time wasted on washing clothes by allowing users to start and stop laundry according to their schedule.
