The new Soundbar line comes with Samsung's signature Q-Symphony technology, which enables both the TV and the Soundbar to work simultaneously, resulting in a fuller surround sound. The device also features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology, which offers a complete 3D audio flow around the listener.
All the devices will also support Amazon Alexa to help facilitate hands-free control. They also come with a Game Mode Pro setting which automatically detects when the TV is connected to a gaming console.
The high-end HW-Q950T & HW-Q900T and models will also feature premium fabrics from Danish textile brand Kvadrat, adding to the visual appeal of the devices. Earlier in July, Samsung had launched the HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T models in the US.
The T Series Soundbar features Dolby Audio and DTS Virtual:X technology to help create a theatre-like atmosphere in the living room itself, without the need of additional speakers. If the TV is compatible, the T Series can be connected to it using a HDMI cable or via Bluetooth. Also, two different mobile devices can be connected to the T Series Soundbar at the same time using Bluetooth.
