A new day, a new product is unveiled to cater to the millennial generation. Samsung has just released details of a vertical TV, which is being touted as ideal for viewing your Instagram feed on the big screen.
Measuring 43 inches, the TV is called The Sero, which translates from Korean to the rather creative name of “The Vertical.” Through its mirroring function, users can synchronize their mobile’s screen using NFC.
The Sero’s biggest selling point seems to be that it caters to the large portion of social media content that is shot in portrait.
Should you wish to use it as a conventional TV, it can also be rotated back to landscape (horizontal) on its stand.
With its sleek minimalist design, plus 4.1-channel, 60W speakers and compact navy stand, Samsung clearly seems to be aiming at the younger generation, with the TV functioning as a music streaming hub and being aesthetically pleasing doing so.
The Sero is due to first be released in Korea in late May 2019. The price tag is set to be ₩1.89 million, which is approximately $1,630. As of writing, there has been no announcement as to when it may be sold in the US or its price point outside Korea.
