In an advertisement for Samsung’s conceptually new TV from Samsung The Sero 2020, the main focus is on the fact that the TV can rotate by itself 90 degrees. And to accept the standard position as we used to or vertical, which is more typical for modern smartphones.

What is The Sero TV

Did you know that this TV comes only in size of 43 inches and in fact is a simplified version of a standard TV with a minimum set of features. The main task of The Sero TV is to duplicate the screen of your smartphone on the big TV screen, The Sero works with mobile devices iPhone, iPad and with devices with Android OS.

The built-in electric motor can rotate the TV 90 degrees. Additionally, you can buy wheels and make your The Sero TV easy to move.






Features Samsung The Sero

The Sero TV does not have a LAN port (Ethernet), it can only connect to the Internet via WiFi. Therefore, if you decide to buy such a TV, you should have a good WiFi router. For North America, the TV has an antenna port, 3 HDMI ports, one of the ports supports eARC and two USB ports. USB ports are one standard at 0.5A, the second 1A supports more energy-intensive devices, such as external hard drives. No more ports are provided on the TV. In some countries, such as Europe, the TV has 4 HDMI ports. If you plan to output sound to external speakers, then for this you can use only the HDMI port with eARC. Some users report incorrect operation with some smartphone models. But Samsung honestly warns about this on the site.

The Sero TV screen supports 60 frames per second, has EDGE backlight and local dimming Supreme UHD Dimming (dimming most of the screen, the initial level). Judging by the lack of dual LED backlighting, the screen is of the previous generation, but as many users note in 2020, cheap QLED TVs with dual LEDs are worse than old screens. The technical specifications of the TV correspond to the Q60T.

How much is The Sero and what do we pay for

The cost of the TV The Sero 1999 $ in the USA, Europe 1599 Euro. In Europe, a TV is cheaper by $ 200. A similar 43Q60T TV costs $ 530. The result is we pay $ 1,400 for a plastic stand, speakers and an engine that turns the TV. How much is it, of course yes it is a lot, the cost of the TV is overpriced by at least $ 1000. This is the price buyers pay for owning a new product. The cost of the TV by the end of the year will decrease by $ 500-700. And we can assume that the price of the TV will be about $ 1000.

How The Sero Works

After turning on the TV, if you have chosen the display mode of the smartphone. You will be prompted to download the program from the Android app store or the App Store. Scan the QR code and install the SmartThing application. After this, you can try how the TV responds to the position of the smartphone.

Why Samsung offered The Sero only 43 inches

The Sero is an experimental TV form factor. Samsung decided to see how the market will react to the appearance of such a TV. In case of successful sales, an extension of offers is possible. But we must also take into account the fact that the larger the TV, the more massive the stand must be made. This may cause some difficulties.
