OnePlus TV effect: Samsung QLED Frame TV gets price cut

After finding success in the flagship smartphone segment, OnePlus forayed into the premium TV category with the launch of the new Android TV-powered Q1 and Q1 Pro television series on September 26 in India.

Within hours, consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced to offer discounts on recently launched Frame QLED TV during the upcoming Flipkart Big Billion Days sale this weekend. The 55-inch Samsung Frame QLED TV will available for as low as Rs 84,990 against the launch price of Rs 1,19,999 and it can be noted that this offer is valid for a limited time (September 29-October 4). 

Also, if the consumer doing pre-paid transactions through credit cards, debit cards and net banking will get instant cashback of Rs 5,000.

Samsung Frame TV comes with proprietary intelligent 4-core Quantum Processor 4K powered display, which can instantly upscale content for sharper details and refined colors. The processor comes with 1.7 Gigahertz clock speed and creates an adaptive experience on the big LED screen.

Also, it boasts  Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology, 120 Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ that brings all pictures with natural colours. The Frame is one of Netflix's recommended TV for the ultimate viewing experience, which the OnePlus TV is not. The latter is expected to support Netflix with a software update in the coming months.

Samsung Frame TV can connect wirelessly with a wide range of smart devices and make them work together with the SmartThings App and One Remote Control.  It also comes with built-in AirPlay 2 feature and users can stream or share content from Apple devices without any cords. Also, it supports  Bixby and Google Assistant and users can change channels, adjust the volume, control playback and more with just the voice commands.

It also comes with motion and brightness sensors. When a person is nearby, the motion sensor detects the presence and turns the TV display into artwork. When there is nobody in front of the TV, it turns off to save energy. By detecting ambient light, the brightness sensor automatically balances the screen’s brightness and colour tone for natural illumination. 

Considering the features and the price cut, Samsung Frame TV is a smart buy.
