Samsung Electronics showcased their entire line-up of 8K and 4K QLED TVs including their signature 98-inch 8K QLED Q900R TV at the 2019 Samsung Southeast Asia and Oceania Forum in Singapore with the range slated to arrive at retailers from April this year throughout the region.
Taking centrestage in Samsung’s new line-up of QLED TVs is their massive 98-inch QLED 8K Q900R TV that is as massive as it is powerful. The new 98-inch QLED Q900R 8K TV as well as its smaller 65-inch, 75-inch 82-inch and 85-inch siblings integrate their unique AI-powered Quantum Processor that uses machine-learning to learn and compare millions of images in order to reduce noise, restore edges and to essentially upscale content into near 8K-quality content regardless of the original format which allows you to enjoy your existing movie library in a suitably impressive fashion.
Other refinements common across Samsung’s latest generation of QLED TVs include what they call Ultra Viewing Angle technology to ensure that a more even backlight passing through the panel to allow for better viewing angles which means you’ll still enjoy a full-on viewing experience watching the footy on league night even if you’re stuck in a corner of the living room.
The most powerful QLED TVs in Samsung’s 2019 line-up, in particular the aforementioned QLED 8K Q900R and their 4K Q90R, Q85R, Q80R and Q70R QLED TVs will integrated Direct Full Array tech that puts backlit LEDs behind the panel for precise brightness control on a per-pixel basis. This is combined with algorithms that dynamically analyse the characteristics of each scene in real time to offer richer, deeper and more realistic blacks, real-time brightness distribution and superior colour reproduction.
Another key upgrade to Samsung’s 2019 QLED TVs are HDR10+ content support which uses Samsung’s own picture processing format that allows for better contrast and details on a per-scene basis with movies that supports the format. The new QLED 8K TVs will also support HDMI 2.1 (8K 60P) transmission.
Making another return this year in the new QLED TV line-up is their Ambient Mode from last year’s models that projects a background on the display to make it seem like an animated picture frame or a part of the wall depending on your preferences. This is also paired with their automatic light control sensors that dynamically adapt brightness for optimum viewing whether you’re watching the TV at night or in brightly lit rooms under sunlight.
The new QLED TV range, spearheaded by the massive 98-inch Q900R 8K QLED TV will consist of more than 20 models with 65-inch, 75-inch, 82-inch and 85-inch 8K QLED TVs coming to retail this year across the region in addition to a range of 4K QLED TVs that include the Q90, Q85, Q80 and Q70 series TVs.
