In time for the new school year, Samsung presents the new Samsung Flip WM85R. We were lucky enough to test this device exclusively in advance. The high quality of the 85" display paired with practical functions offer optimal conditions for interactive and collaborative learning, especially in schools or universities.
This is also a great advantage in everyday school life, as different areas or tasks can be worked through directly on the display and are visible to the whole class.
Another advantage of the new display size becomes clear especially in larger meeting rooms. The 85 inches offer a fantastic picture in 4K, so that even small details are visible to every participant in the room.
By combining it with a height-adjustable display stand, you can adjust the height of the touch display individually. Especially in schools, this allows you to create a balance between the different body heights of the students.
New design - Better contrast in the school environment!
The smaller models were equipped with a white, slightly greyish chassis. The model here was the classic flipchart. The new Samsung Flip 2 WM85R, on the other hand, has a black metal frame.
Especially when mounted on a wall in classrooms, the separation between the frame and the wall becomes clear and the Smart Board is an excellent substitute for a blackboard.
Like the frame, the pen has now also been designed in black. In our test, however, it was clearly recognisable that the natural writing feeling still exists. As before, the pen has two tips of different thicknesses to suit every situation.
Ready to go - more time in the classroom
Particularly in the education sector, time is always very tightly timed and leaves little room for manoeuvre. Thanks to the extremely fast operational readiness of the Samsung Flips WM85R, lessons can start immediately and time can be used for important tasks. It only takes a few seconds for the device to be ready for use.
Proven features - Smart interaction in the classroom
Besides the changed display size and the new design, the Samsung Flip WM85R offers the same features as the previous models:
- Miracast: The Miracast feature in particular offers an extremely wide range of applications in everyday school life, such as wirelessly sharing a screen or simply streaming content.
- Format templates: With the integrated format templates, for example, grade sheets, lesson plans, maths notes or timetables can be stored directly on the display as a background. This saves an enormous amount of time, especially when preparing lessons.
- Web browser: With the integrated web browser, you do not need a separate PC to surf the web. This is an extreme advantage, especially in classrooms or small meeting rooms.
