Evaluation

The UN55S9C skillfully expresses its novelty as a curved OLED TV. The frame that protrudes from both sides smartly emphasizes its curve, but we rate that it is not exaggerated. We praise that the design realized "a curved panel that is on the floor" which looks easy to do but in fact is difficult to accomplish. This is one response to expressing a new TV. We rate that the design skillfully expresses the novelty.
