Samsung showcased 2021 model TVs, including Nano QLED, Micro LED and Lifestyle TVs, at the online event ahead of CES 2021. Meanwhile, he shared the eco-friendly approaches and innovative features of its new TVs. One of the interesting innovations is the Eco Remote remote control, which is charged with solar energy.
As a technology developed by the company and will be used for the first time, Samsung TVs will be equipped with a solar-powered remote control in 2021, which can be charged via indoor lighting, outdoor lighting or USB. According to the company, this will prevent 99 million AAA battery waste in the next 7 years. In the production of these controls, Samsung introduced a new production process with recyclable plastic bottles and the recycling rate at the controls was 24 percent.
In addition, Samsung will try to reduce its environmental footprint worldwide and systematically in television production. The company will also explore ways to lower energy costs for consumers and use greater amounts of recycled content in all TV series.
On the other hand, the South Korean company will use the previously award-winning “Eco-Friendly Packaging” design in all 2021 Lifestyle TVs and most Neo QLED TV series for 2021, taking into account the feedback from its consumers. He says that with this sustainable solution, approximately 200,000 tons of corrugated boxes will be re-evaluated annually. While the writings and images on “Eco-Friendly Packaging” will be minimized, the use of oil-based colored printing inks traditionally used in TV packaging will be discontinued and the waste rate will be reduced.
Accessibility features in 2021 Samsung TVs
The 2021 Samsung Accessible Features, now fully available on the 2021 QLED and Neo QLED models, use artificial intelligence technology and the latest technological advancements to bring more users to enjoy the TV experience at home. The 2021 series, along with new features such as Caption Moving, Sign Language Zoom and Multiple Audio Output, enables hearing-impaired or visually impaired users to enhance their viewing experience according to their needs and preferences. Samsung also aims to expand the scope of its Voice Guide feature by 2022. This function guides people who are hard of hearing or partially sighted. Samsung also stated that it will continue to develop new AI features in the coming years to further increase the accessibility of Samsung TVs.
