Samsung Armani LCD TV
Samsung today unveiled a new premium LCD TV designed by Giorgio Armani in 46 inch and 52 inch sizes at the Milan International Furniture Fair in Italy. The TV features a four-mode lit power switch with the two companies' logos on the front, a remote with backlit buttons, and a smaller "pebble" remote with several essential buttons. Pricing was not immediately available, but Samsung confirmed that the smaller TV would ship in Europe, Korea, and Russia in mid summer, with the 52-inch version shipping late-summer.
The glass-fronted TV features 100Hz Full HD and HDMI connectors, and several other of Samsung's high-end features.
The announcement comes after Samsung unveiled an update to its Armani phone.
