The 8K TV, called the Q950, has a screen-to-body ratio of almost 99%, which means that the front of the TV is almost entirely screen, with the exception of a slim “chin” along the bottom. Samsung says it has the largest screen-to-body ratio on the market.
Beyond being nearly bezel-less, the TV is only 15 millimeters thick.
The TV appears to be the result of a new chip Samsung announced in January 2019. The chip is able to deliver 8K resolution without the need for extra components, allowing for new TV designs with ultra-slim or nonexistent bezels.
Here’s another look at the TV. Look how thin these bezels are:
The Q950 is the same Samsung TV leaked by German tech site 4K Filme last week. 4K Filme said the photos were accidentally leaked by Samsung US itself, and were discovered via some internet sleuthing.
All of Samsung’s 2020 8K TVs are also getting some upgraded smarts, including a “digital butler” that will control home devices, a built-in health tracking feature, and the option to use Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant to set moody screensavers or control the TV. Plus, Samsung is adding multi-view to the new TVs, which means you can share your phone’s screen on the TV along with whatever you’re watching, either in side-by-side mode or picture-in-picture — Samsung says there are 14 different possible configurations.
