Samsung unveiled The Sero more than a year ago, but now reports the start of sales for the Dutch market. The most striking feature of the 43-inch television is that it can be tilted from a horizontal to a vertical position and back. This should make the TV suitable for displaying images from smartphones such as holiday videos shot vertically.

To connect Galaxy smartphones to the TV, users can tap their device against it. Android smartphones must have the SmartThings app from Samsung for the combination with the TV. The resolution of the device is 3840×2160 pixels. With regard to HDR playback, HDR 10+ and HDL are supported, although it is not clear from the specifications what the maximum brightness is.

The Sero also includes a 60W 4.1 channel speaker system, three HDMI interfaces and two USB ports. An Ethernet port is not present, but the TV supports wireless connections via 802.11ac or WiFi 5, and Bluetooth 4.2.
