You remember Samsung’s Serif TV? What a design nightmare that was, eh? (Yes, I really found it hideous.) Luckily not all of Samsung’s TVs will look like that. This Smart Docking TV design for Samsung really pushes design in the right direction. Not just another good looking TV, the new design debunks the whole “wedge design” trend and takes the opposite road to make a TV that looks like it could seriously kick ass. The new design has a valley running around the rim of the TV, this not only enables easy docking of your smart-device, but also acts as a complete end to end speaker design, giving the TV some serious Audio cred!
Another sensibly brilliant direction was to reveal all ports by keeping them on the front. USB, HDMI, RC, and a few other ports are all front facing, celebrating connectivity, rather than shrouding it. Isn’t that just brilliant?!
