It connects to other devices thru two USB ports, HDMI 2.1, HDMI-CEC and RJ45 (1EA)/Ethernet port. The included Height Adjustable Stand stand supports tilt, pivot (cockpit mode) and height adjustments. It supports several wall mounting standards like 200 x 200, 300x300, and 400x400.

It comes with four corner speakers and two central woofers that produce a 60W 2.2.2 channel audio system.

Samsung says that the massive 1000R curve with the large 55-inch size can 'overwhelm' the user's senses that can produce an adrenaline-fueled experience. It has a Cockpit Mode where users can use the Height Adjustable Stand to tilt and turn the screen.

Powering the display is Samsung's Quantum Matrix Technology which controls the densely packed LEDs. It features 14-bit processing and 'sophisticated' lighting management technology that work together to offer 16,384 black levels.

Lastly, it is running on TizenOS and it measures 46.3 x 43.4 x 15 inches and weighs 91.5lbs with the stand.
