Super OLED technology reportedly eliminates the need for a color filter as the OLED pixel unit comprises self-emitting RGB sub-pixels laid directly on the display panel, each emitting its own light. The technology is also able to differentiate varying degrees of blacks and shadows, so that users can enjoy detail even in the darkest of scenes for the ultimate TV experience.

"Samsung has had a long and successful history of creating innovative OLED products, including mobile phones, digital cameras and tablet PCs. Today, we are proud to extend our OLED leadership to the TV category with this spectacular 55-inch Super OLED," said Hyunsuk Kim, executive vice president, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "By incorporating true-to-life picture quality with ultimate speed and vividness, Smart Interaction, Smart Content and ultimate thinness, Samsung is delivering the ultimate TV today."

The Samsung Super OLED TV features reportedly vivid and true-to-life picture quality in both 2D and 3D, with significantly improved color accuracy compared to conventional LED TVs. Since light output on the Super OLED is controlled on a pixel-to-pixel basis, better blacks and whites can be achieved.

Further, the Samsung Super OLED offers faster response times than LED, virtually eliminating motion blur even in the fastest-moving scenes.

By using Voice Control, Motion Control and Face Recognition features to complement the remote control, users can turn the TV on or off, adjust the volume or activate selected apps through speech. They can also use voice to activate the search function in the web browser and "tell" the TV what they are searching for.

The Super OLED's built-in camera recognizes movement in the foreground to enable intuitive control, and two unidirectional array microphones recognize voice at an accurate rate.

The Samsung Super OLED TV is equipped with Samsung's new dual core processor, which allows users to run multiple apps simultaneously for a faster, uninterrupted experience, as well as a smoother web browsing experience.

Samsung's AllShare Play offers a way for users to access, manage and share content through cloud storage and access that content on supported smartphones, tablets, cameras, computers or TVs, regardless of their location.

The Samsung Super OLED TV will be available commercially worldwide this year.
