Samsung’s 2023 Neo QLED and Lifestyle TVs Certified as First Screens To Reconnect Users With Their Circadian RhythmBy Samsung Newsroom
Samsung Electronics today announced that its 2023 Neo QLED1 and Lifestyle TV2 lineups received the ‘Circadian Rhythm Display’ certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), a leading electrical engineering certification institute in Germany. The certification underscores Samsung’s commitment to developing technology and products designed with consumers top of mind.

This certification recognizes that Samsung TV’s Eye Comfort mode provides an optimal viewing experience for consumers spending more time indoors by automatically balancing light exposure and color temperature to mimic natural outdoor light.
The circadian rhythm has a cycle of inhibiting melatonin secretion for dynamic activities during the day while activating its release for a comfortable sleep at night. Melatonin is a hormone known to help you sleep well.
VDE’s certification validates the benefits of Eye Comfort mode on users’ circadian rhythm by measuring circadian stimulus at different illuminance levels and assessing the impact on melatonin suppression. The certification process complies with the Circadian Stimulus method based on the research results of the Lighting Research Center in the U.S.
This is one of many verifications Samsung TVs have received representing ongoing efforts to put users and their experience front and center of product design. Previously, Samsung TVs have received ‘Eye Care’ certification from VDE and ‘Glare-Free’ validation from UL, along with ‘Pantone Validated’ and ‘SkinTone Validated’ certifications from Pantone, both signifying that certified Samsung screens satisfy the organization’s color accuracy standards.

October might seem early for next-gen Galaxy S leaks, but that isn’t stopping them. Samsung can’t keep any secrets, and with the Galaxy S23 launch event likely coming between January and March next year, it’s officially leak season. Moreover, the Galaxy S22 hasn’t been the hit Samsung needed, and now the iPhone 14 and Pixel 7 are available. With that in mind, seeing more Galaxy S23 design leaks is not surprising.
The Galaxy S23 design leaks started popping up online a few weeks ago. It happened soon after three of the four iPhone 14 models hit stores. Those leaks indicated that the Galaxy S23 would look similar to its predecessor. But they also implied that Samsung would bring the Galaxy 22 Ultra rear camera design to all three Galaxy S23 variants.
Rather than a camera island holding the triple-lens cameras on the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus, Samsung will go for independent protrusions for each camera. That’s what the company did with the Galaxy S22 Ultra last year.
Like any smartphone leaks, the renders we saw in late September can’t be confirmed. We have to wait for Samsung to announce the Galaxy S23 series. But the closer we get to that announcement, the more leaks we’ll see, which will either corroborate or deny the early ones.
Well-known leaker Ice Universe surfaced images of purported Galaxy S23 case models. They seem to confirm the rear design of the handset.
The Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, and Galaxy S23 Ultra in the photos above all feature similar camera module designs. Again, each lens has its protrusion rather than being part of a continuous metal frame. We always expected this design from the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Samsung applying the same design to the Galaxy S23 and the Plus indicates that Samsung might be going for a more uniform design language.
The fact that case makers are already producing accessories for the Galaxy S23 handsets further suggests there’s some validity in these rumors. However, the cases do not contain actual Galaxy S23 variants. Instead, they have paper phones in them.
There’s still one thing that Samsung can’t do to make the Ultra look more like the regular Galaxy S23 phones. The former will still have more rectangular corners than the smaller ones. That’s because the Galaxy S23 Ultra is a Note device. It features a built-in stylus, so the top and bottom sides of the phone have to be flat. As a result, the corners can’t curve like on the Galaxy S23 and Plus models.

It’s typically a matter of when, not if, an upcoming smartphone will leak in full ahead of the official reveal. On Tuesday morning, press renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 leaked online. We had a good idea of what Samsung’s next-gen foldable phones would look like already, but now the final designs are floating around online.
Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4 press images leak
First up is a rather blurry press render of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 from MySmartPrice. According to the site, the leaked image above comes from an industry insider. At a glance, the new phone looks virtually identical to its predecessor.

On the right side, we can see a number of folded Z Flips. The Z Flip 4 will reportedly come in lavender, cream, black, and blue colorways. The back of the Z Flip 4 will once again feature a dual camera setup, but rumors claim the new model is getting a 2.1-inch cover screen. That would be a touch larger than the 1.9-inch cover screen of the Z Flip 3.
Finally, the report notes that the Z Flip 4 will feature a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, a 3,700mAh battery, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a 12-megapixel primary camera and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, and support for 25W fast charging.
Higher-quality leaked images
The same morning, Evan Blass (@evleaks) shared even higher-quality press images of both the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 on 91mobiles.
In the Z Flip 4 press render from Blass, it’s easier to see the hole-punch selfie camera:

It’s hard to gather much from a shot of the phone when it’s unfolded, but Blass claims that the phone will be available in Phantom Black, Beige, and Gray Green. We can also make out the metal shell of the phone and the side-mounted power button with a fingerprint sensor:

Image source: 91mobiles/Evan Blass Previous rumors have suggested that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature a 7.6-inch main display, 6.2-inch cover screen, a triple rear camera setup (50MP+12MP+10MP), Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 12GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of internal storage.
In addition to a recent spate of leaks, Samsung has also seemingly confirmed the date of its next Galaxy Unpacked event. The company tweeted out this series of cryptic images on Monday hinting at the date of its next major product reveal:
If you solve the puzzle, it offers up the following number: 081022. That would translate to August 10th, 2022, which just happens to be the date that Evan Blass shared on Twitter on Monday morning. We’ll finally see the new foldables on that date.

2022 Samsung QLED and Lifestyle TVs Recognized By Top Global Certification Institutes For Eye Comfort, Safety and Color AccuracyBy Samsung Newsroom
Samsung Electronics today announced that its 2022 QLED and Lifestyle TVs have been recognized by leading global certification institutes for eye safety and color technology. The news comes as the company announced its newest QLED and Lifestyle TVs at CES 2022.
The 2022 Samsung Lifestyle TVs won the ‘Eye Care’ Certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE) in Germany, one of Europe’s largest technical-scientific associations with more than 36,000 members. The certification applies to Samsung’s 2022 Lifestyle TV models including The Frame, The Serif and The Sero. The screens are evaluated on various categories, including ‘Safety’, ‘Gentle to the eyes’, flicker level, uniformity and color fidelity.

The new Lifestyle TVs were assessed for safety from blue light emission and melatonin inhibition levels based on a light hazard classification method set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Samsung’s 2022 Lifestyle TVs satisfy the IEC’s standards for screen flickering, which can cause eye fatigue or headache for viewers. They were also recognized for excellence in color fidelity and picture quality uniformity, both elements of which contribute to eye comfort level while watching TV.

Samsung’s 2022 Lifestyle TVs1 were also verified as ‘Glare-Free’ by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a leading independent safety science company. UL’s verification validates the ‘Glare-Free’ claim by assessing the products against Unified Glare Rating (UGR) testing standard set by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). Samsung’s new Lifestyle TV models use a new Matte Display with anti-glare, anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint properties to deliver the optimal brightness and provide the best picture quality without glare.
Reflected Glare, which determines whether the objects on a TV screen are visible even when external light is reflected on the surface Discomfort Glare, which determines whether a TV screen is too bright Disability Glare, which determines whether a TV screen is overly bright when watching TV in a dark room
These glare assessments were calculated based on test results of watching TV in both 300 lux, which is equivalent to a brightly lit work area, and in 150 lux, which is usually the value for a dimly lit work area.

Additionally, Samsung’s all new 2022 QLED models received the world’s first ‘Pantone Validated’ certification from Pantone, the world-famous brand in the global color industry and creator of the Pantone Matching System (PMS).
These models receiving this recognition from Pantone include all 20 newly released models – 15 QLED TVs in both 4K and 8K and five monitors. Samsung’s 2022 QLED TV line-up was recognized for its accurate expression of 2,030 Pantone colors and newly added 110 skin tone shades.
“As TVs become more of an entertainment hub in the home, there’s an increased demand for screens with top-tier picture quality that minimize eye strain,” said Seokwoo Yong, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “This recognition from leading global institutes validates our technology that delivers best-in-class images along with the most comfortable watching experience.”
