Design and connectivity
This Samsung TV stands out mainly for its floating frame-type stand. It is a trapezoidal base of very small thickness that is located in the center, as we used to see on monitors. Its color is silver, something that is also unconventional for TVs. This support is attached to the panel by a thick trunk that is anchored to it in the lower area.
When we have the TV with the stand on we see that weighs 21 kilograms and measures 782.3 x 1226.8 x 256.5 mm. This, although it may not seem like it, is robust and capable of offering a more than enough stability for a diagonal of 139 cm of exhibition.
And although the Samsung QE55Q83B looks perfect like this, I have to remember that you can always get rid of the support to stay with a panel, so 706.1 x 1226.8 x 55.9mm and 18kg that you can hang if you have a VESA 200 x 200mm. In this way you can choose at what height, exactly, to place it. The color of the casing is titan Black, although this is only seen in the profile and the back, because on the front we find a design without the four frames.
As a final detail, comment that Samsung introduces its 2002 echo remote that is charged with a small solar panel or via USB.
