You'll barely notice anything but the screen with the Samsung QE55Q85RAT 55 inch QLED 4K HDR Smart Television.

Thin bezels, a holding plinth and clever concealment of attached wires combine to ensure that the picture is the only thing that stands out.

This model comes with a transparent cable and One Connect Box, so that all leads can be neatly grouped together and positioned out of sight.

The One Invisible Cable is accompanied by a bending cover, which holds it in place on the stand after it's connected to the relevant port at the back of the TV.

The One Connect Box has relevant ports that the television does and can place external devices as icons on your home menu, forming an entertainment hub.

The box has four HDMI ports, two USB slots, IR Out, Audio Out, ANT IN, component, AV, LAN, digital audio out and ex-link connectivity.

Consoles, Blu-ray players, media players and streaming sticks can all be linked together through this method, although there's also a smart interface to call upon.

That contains Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube, all of which are broadcasting more and more in 4K. The Universal Guide is made up of user and current trends.

You should never be short of something to watch or do and the screen need never be blank, with the wealth of options in Ambient Mode.

Your décor can be matched with the background setting and Linear dots uses the QLED capabilities to transmit artistic designs.

Personal photos will look like they've never done before with Mono matt, which uses clever filters, while the light grid has options like neon for a cool look.

The time and date can be displayed on a colourful background, the television can become your own gallery or a work of art, composed by well-known figures.

That's alongside the pin-sharp colour, clarity and contrast contained in the moving images that make Samsung's QLED products so great.

Quantum dot LEDs beam through the LCD back panel for brightness of up to 1,500 nits which are controlled, in clusters, by 96 dimming zones for precision lighting.

Blacks are deeper and whites appear more highlighted, with over a billion colours and shades additionally through 10-bit depth and 100 per cent volume.

The high dynamic range abilities of Quantum HDR 1500 can reproduce peak luminosity to the last detail, for a wholly realistic viewing experience.

This is paired with life-like surround sound, with engaging audio that is perfectly in sync with the picture, thanks to digital alignment.

All footage can be upscaled to 4K quality through the Quantum Processor, which contains artificial intelligence and machine learning.

A Quantum Dot Display uses small conducting nanocrystals just nanometres in width. When these nanocrystals are exposed to light they emit different colours dependant on their size. A result of using nanocrystals compared to a traditional LED display is they produce far more vibrant and brighter colours giving the display a much richer picture.
