Samsung will not release 3D TVs in 2016

3D was the next big thing in the television industry a few years ago, and 3D TV became a whole new category. Now, 3D is just another feature with major brands including Samsung and Vizio pulling their 3D TVs out of the market.

An anonymous source at Samsung has mentioned that the TVs released by the company in 2016 will not even support 3D. Some 2015 models from the company will still support 3D, and so will some models from Sony and LG. The company is moving towards virtual reality with its Gear VR headset and 360-degree camera, the Gear 360.

Samsung has focussed on releasing more 4K SUHD TVs with HDR capabilities in 2016, and the company is expected to bring second-generation Quantum Dot displays that will offer even better picture quality.
