Samsung’s 43-inch 4K “The Sero,” which means “vertical” in Korean, can be pivoted between horizontal and vertical orientations – just like a smartphone or tablet. It’s designed for social media apps like TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and more. The orientation technology connects seamlessly with users’ mobile devices to smoothly and naturally display content in traditional horizontal formats, as well as vertical formats designed for mobile consumption. The display was made available in South Korea last year, and Samsung is set to expand The Sero’s availability to several global markets in 2020.

The rotating stand boasts an integrated 4.1-channel, 60-watt speaker system, while providing ample vertical clearance to prevent the TV from hitting the floor whenever it pivots into portrait mode. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
