Outline

TVs are usually designed by developing the LED panel first, followed by designing of the exterior in accordance with the panel. With D8000, we simultaneously worked on design and panel development, resulting in an innovative process where the panel itself becomes the exterior. The panel shield is no longer hidden by the bezel. Instead, it is exposed on the exterior. When the TV is turned off, the bezel and screen become one. When it is turned on, the user's level of concentration is enhanced to provide an emotional user experience.

Evaluation

With this product, Samsung elevated its determination to make the frame as thin as possible and give maximum priority to the display to an even higher level than in other televisions from its current range. Despite the fact that the frame is so extremely thin as to be “invisible,” the television still projected an overwhelming aesthetic impact that made us want to look at it in spite of ourselves.
