What to expect from Samsung’s ‘First Look 2021’ event?
Typically, Samsung usually holds a First Look event to unveil new TVs, though the invite hints at more than televisions. Samsung promising to show the “future of the display” through the latest Samsung technologies and “visions.” Details are scant at the moment, but the invite and a series of teasers make it clear that Samsung will go beyond TVs. We don’t know exactly what to expect, but there is a solid chance Samsung might unveil a flexible TV or rollable screens.
To be clear, Samsung has already confirmed that it will offer MicroLED TVs from early 2021. We expect Samsung to launch a series of products – most likely TVs, laptops and monitors – with MiniLEDs. The MiniLED will be the rage this year, and a lot many companies will launch TVs and laptops with this display technology. In fact, Apple is also rumoured to launch new iPad Pros and MacBooks with a MiniLED display.
Samsung is holding multiple press events this month. On January 11, Samsung will hold its CES 2021 conference, followed by an Exynos event scheduled for January 12. The Galaxy Unpacked event meanwhile is scheduled for January 14. We are expecting Samsung to launch the Galaxy S21 range and a slew of accessories during the event.
