The Samsung Sero TV has an automated rotating display that matches your smartphone orientation. Is it a gimmick or an extension of the mobile age?
We have not reviewed the Samsung Sero, but we can say it is perhaps the TV innovation of 2019 and now finally here at $2,399. Well its on the Samsung website for $2199 and at JB’s for $1995 so shop around for a deal.
The ethos is that traditional smartphone content is portrait (9:16) versus TV (16:9) – or any ratio in between. Samsung found that a lot of audio and video content is shot ‘vertically’ and it simply loses impact when played on a standard TV.
The Samsung Sero (Korean Sero(세로) ‘vertical’) was born as the first TV equipped with an automated rotating display that can switch between horizontal or vertical orientation. It uses a PCT Poster Chamber Design. That means a plate stand rotates the TV so leave room to rotate it.
In GadgetGuy style we need to let you know all the specs before you go to AfterPay heaven (as the mobile age is wont to do). Oh and this is one if the few 43″ 4K TVs in Australia.
