Samsung is here with its latest line-up of TVs for India. In the year 2018, the company debuted its 43-inch less pricier version of the Frame TV. Following that, now the brand is set to make advancements to its flagship QLED, mid-range UHD, and ‘Make for India’ Concert series of TVs. To further the line-up of these devices, Samsung has not only introduced one or two TVs. Instead, the company has increased its UHD line-up from 10 models to 16 models and its QLED line-up from 6 to 8 models. The UHD line-up starts at the price tag of Rs 64,900 while the second one starts at Rs 2,45,000. Both the series of televisions are accompanied by Samsung’s One Remote and S-Voice.
Following the trends happening in the tech world, Samsung is updating its hardware and software alike to match the recent times.

The feature will work, even when the TV is switched off. The television will click a photo of the wall behind it via Samsung’s SmartThings application. This photo will be used to create a similar pattern on the screen. The Smart Things app will also enable users to pair their devices with other IoT gadgets, also they will be able to project their smartphone screens onto the TV.
