Designed by the Bouroullec Brothers, the elegant profile of the Samsung Serif TV looks beautiful from any angle. Turn the blank screen into a design piece with Serif Ambient Mode*, displaying decorative content. It boasts a cinematic 4K UHD picture with the billion colour shades of Samsung’s QLED technology and Q HDR, and the picture adapts for optimum visual and audio quality. Control all compatible devices with One Remote Control, and you can access a world of online entertainment via Samsung's Smart platform, and interact by voice with Bixby, Alexa and Google Assistant built in.

360° Design by Bouroullec Bros
With timeless design by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the profile of the Samsung Serif TV forms a capital ‘I’ shape that looks beautiful from any angle. Its slim body broadens at the top to form a flat surface, atop an elegant, free-standing metal stand.

QLED technology
Utilising quantum dot technology, QLED TV takes light and turns it into breath-taking colour. 100% colour volume is achieved (DCI-P3 standard measure), for a realistic picture of rich, authentic colour of over a billion hues.

HDR powered by HDR10+ expands light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, so this model's picture gets closer to real life. The supreme brightness levels of QLED technology enables you to experience the full potential of the latest HDR standards.

Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes.
