Samsung today took wraps off their D7000 and D8000 LED LCD sets, each with a bezel that’s just 2/10ths of an inch wide.
The new sets look gorgeous, eliminating those annoying borders, at the same time, display area will get 1-inch larger without the set itself increasing in size from 2010’s models. The LED D8000 has a brushed metal bezel that’s so thin, you really don’t see it unless you’re standing right next to the set. The D7000 still has a thin black bezel with a touch of red color along the edge, but it’s still nearly impossible to see from a distance.
The D8000 offers a 240Hz refresh rate, 2ms refresh rate, and LED backlighting. It’s also got built-in Wi-Fi and Samsung’s newly announced Smart Hub technology. The set ships with a remote control with its own 3″ LCD screen, which can actually stream content to its screen as well. Both sets offer 3D capability using Samsung’s new lighter-weight 3D glasses.
Samsung didn’t reveal release dates or prices for the new displays yet, but I’d assume we’ll hear more in the coming days and weeks.
