Samsung Electronics America has announced the launch of the ATIV One 7 Curved, the industry’s first curved all-in-one PC.
The 27-inch curved, Full HD display offers wide viewing angles, drawing users in from nearly anywhere in a room. The product is enhanced by impressive multimedia capabilities, as well as smart connectivity.
The ATIV One 7 Curved will be on display for the first time at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Samsung’s booth from January 6 to 9.
“The arched display of the ATIV One 7, along with top-of-the-line multimedia capabilities for rich sound and easy content sharing across devices, make this model stand out from the rest as the ultimate entertainment desktop,” said Gary Riding, vice president of mobile computing marketing at Samsung Electronics America.
The curved design of the new Samsung ATIV One 7 offers a realistically immersive gaming experience. It draws users in with a Full HD panel, while the 4000R curvature makes the screen feel even larger than its ample 27-inches. Wide viewing angles (178 degrees) make it easy to enjoy the screen from almost anywhere in a room without having to shift focus.
The PC also features a sleek, metallic deco frame and stand.
It has been engineered to offer best-in-class sound, with two dynamic 10W stereo speakers, a surround sound experience with Dolby Sound Effects, and lossless audio transmission through APT-X technology. For movie and game enthusiasts, the Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB of memory let users keep up with fast moving graphics.
Bluetooth Music Play 3.0 allows users to connect and play music from a smartphone through the ATIV One 7 Curved speakers, even if the PC is off. With this feature, consumers can quickly and easily enjoy music saved on smartphones in high-quality sound from anywhere in the home.
Samsung’s new All-In-One features a camera that enables users to video conference in Full HD. HDMI in and out ports allow for easy connections to game consoles and other content sources, while integrated graphics (Intel HD Graphics 5500) ensure smooth rendering of games, videos and other content.
Advanced connectivity and performanceThrough SideSync 3.0, ATIV One 7 Curved users can receive phone calls and text messages forwarded from a Samsung smartphone to the PC. Users can also control the smartphone from the PC screen, mouse and keyboard through SideSync 3.0’s sharing mode, as well as share content between devices with Samsung Link 2.0. This means they can save photos, videos, music and more in the ATIV One 7 Curved’s 1TB flash drive, and then access it from other devices from anywhere in the home.
The 27-inch Samsung ATIV One 7 Curved will be available in the USA for pre-order beginning first quarter of 2015 for $1300.
