SALT LAKE CITY — Have you ever wished your TV could rest on its side like a big smartphone? Samsung’s got you covered.

The Verge recently reported on Samsung’s new quantum-dot QLED Sero television, which is designed with millennials and smartphone users in mind. The 43-inch TV is mounted on a navy blue stand and can pivot between horizontal and vertical orientation.

The Sero will also feature a 4.1-channel sound system and Bixby voice assistant functionality. According to Engadget, it’s likely to include a 4K display.

According to a press release from Samsung, the TV is intended to encourage owners to stream social media, video, images and music to a larger device. Other lifestyle-oriented QLED TV sets mentioned include “The Serif,” which has a shelf on top, and “The Frame,” a TV capable of simulating paintings and photographs.

Some Twitter users seem interested in the experimental idea, if a little baffled that it’s happening.

The Sero will be up for sale in South Korea in May and will cost 1.9 million won (about $1,630, down from an accidentally reported $16,000). Engadget reports that Samsung has not committed to bringing the TV to the United States.
