Samsung has been the number one brand in the global TV market for ten consecutive years since 2006, selling over 427 million TVs. Throughout the past decade of its TV manufacturing history, Samsung has acted much more like a start-up meeting risks head on, never slowing down the pace of challenge and creativity.
With the 2006 launch of the three million unit-selling R7 (‘Bordeaux’) TV, followed by the ToC (Touch of Color, or Crystal design) TV, the Full HD 3D TV with the world’s first 3D screen, to today’s immersive Curved UHD TVs, Samsung has created products that successfully anticipate, understand and meet consumer needs. Significant industry milestones include the creation of the 29.9mm world’s slimmest TV in 2009, the 110-inch world’s largest UHD TV in 2013 and the 105-inch Curved UHD TV in 2014.
As a result of Samsung’s continuing exploration to find the better ways to enjoy TV, smart TVs became a mainstay in homes around the world. In 2010, Samsung opened the world’s first TV application store and adopted the smart TV user interface – Smart Hub – a year later in 2011.
Samsung’s 2016 Smart TVs make it easier for consumers to discover and access all their favorite content and services, from TV and movies to games and program information, all in one place. The Samsung Smart Control remote serves as a single control unit for nearly all devices connected to a Samsung Smart TV, eliminating the need for multiple remote controls.
At CES 2016, Samsung announced the latest SUHD TV with Quantum dot display – featuring the world’s only cadmium-free, 10 bit panel Quantum dot technology. Quantum dot is a next-generation display material that uses nano-size semi-conductor particles to express dazzling brightness, a broader range of colors and the most accurate color representation of any display material.
“Over the last ten years, our TV sales and rate of innovation have been buoyant and are born from our ongoing desire to offer the best in technology, content and services,” said Hyun Suk Kim. “As we move into a new era, in which the TV experience is more immersive and spectacular than ever, we will not lose sight of the values and consumer understanding that has helped us earn our longstanding market leadership.”
