Yes

Chromecast 1 or Chromecast will do the trick.

OR

If your windows 10 laptop support Intel WiDi and your SAMSUNG Smart TV is WiFi enabled, you can extend the screen of your laptop to the TV without buying extra accessories.

If you want to use Chromecast 2, you need to buy it first.

Without the Chromecast 2 on hand, you can try nothing.

What is the laptop brand and model?

Not all laptops supports WiDi, need Intel CPU and certain WiFi adapters.

Sorry, Lenovo has pulled back the driver for Intel Wireless Display Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad X260.

The possible reason is that the driver will not work after Win 10 update.

I do not have your TV to test. But you can try the built-in feature of Win 10 to see whether you can mirror your laptop screen to your TV. Details are in the link below.
