The self-emitting RGB sub-pixels are laid directly on the colour display panel, so no colour filter is required.

As you'd expect on a flagship TV, you get the full suite of smart TV functionality through Samsung's Smart Hub. And the built-in S-recommendation feature recommends content based on the owner's viewing habits.

And you needn't worry about the ste becoming obsolete: it's compatible with Samsung's Evolution Kit so can be upgraded as new features become available.

LG was the first to bring its curved OLED TV, the 55in LG 55EA9800, to the UK earlier this year.

Hands on: Samsung curved OLED TV
