Samsung Electronics has announced its new lineup of QLED TV series – Q9, Q8, and Q7 and the company is claiming that these are the finest available TVs in the market.
Banking on latest technology — currently not deployed by any TV maker — Samsung said that these new TVs are set to change how viewers watch and experience moving pictures.
Announced at CES 2017, Samsung showcased its latest QLED TVs at Samsung MENA Forum in Singapore during the weekend.
Samsung QLED Vs Conventional TVs
- QLED offers truer colors than ever
- No color saturation even at higher brightness levels
- No viewing difference at narrow angles
Samsung’s Best Picture Quality – Ever
The new lineup offers dramatically improved color performance, displaying DCI-P3 color space accurately and – in another world first for Samsung, QLED TVs are capable of reproducing 100 percent color volume.
This means TVs can express all colors at any level of brightness – with even the subtlest differences visible at the QLED’s peak luminance – between 1,500 and 2,000 nits.
For a layman, colors of our usual TVs distort when we increase brightness. This is not going to happen with Samsung’s QLEDs.
This breakthrough is a result of Samsung’s adoption of a new metal Quantum Dot material – making it possible for the TV to express a significantly improved range of color with much greater detail compared to conventional TVs.
The new Quantum dots allow Samsung QLED TV to express deep blacks and rich detail regardless of how light or dark the scene is, or whether the content is being played in a brightly lit or darkened room.
Samsung QLED TV can also generate peak luminance as high as 1,500 to 2,000 nits, with no impact on its ability to deliver accurate and impeccable colors.
With its metal alloy Quantum Dot technology, brightness no longer has to be compromised to boost color performance, which is also maintained regardless of how wide the viewing angle may be.
Committed to Solving Consumer Pain Points
Samsung’s QLEDs come with new design features which resolve some of the most significant TV viewer pain points.
With the QLED TV, Samsung tried to solved problems that everyone — and every home — has experienced; cable clutter, thick wall mounts and a slew of devices sitting right under the TV.
The improvements to design and usability in the QLED TV series include a single, transparent ‘Invisible Connection’ cable, through which all of the peripheral devices can be gathered and connected to the TV.
This is in addition to the ‘No-gap wall-mount’, which makes it quick and easy to affix the TV flush against the wall. Or, for those who prefer not to mount the TV, Samsung is offering two new stands designed to elevate and showcase the QLED TVs as beautiful home accessories all by themselves.
Consumers can choose either the ‘Studio Stand’, which resembles an easel with a painting, or the sleek ‘Gravity Stand’, which when attached to the TV, resembles a contemporary sculpture.
Samsung’s Smartest TV ever
In 2017, Samsung is focused on the continued evolution of its much lauded Smart TV offering, giving people the simple, unified user experience they want for all their entertainment content – wherever and whenever they want it.
For example, with the Samsung Smart Remote, consumers can control most connected TV devices from a single source, with one device.
This year, the ‘Smart Hub’ interface has been extended to smartphones through Samsung’s new and improved ‘Smart View’ app, which now provides a comprehensive overview of all available content on the app’s home screen. Thus, consumers can use their mobile device to select and start their favorite live TV programs and video-on-demand services – on their TV, through the ‘Smart View’ mobile app. Consumers can also choose to receive alerts on their mobile devices about their favorite content, regarding for example, show times and availability.
Samsung also introduced two new Smart TV services, including ‘Sports’, which shows a customizable summary of a customer’s favorite sports team and its recent and upcoming games, and ‘Music’, which can identify songs as they are being played live on a TV show, among many other features.
Availability and Pricing
Samsung has said that its QLEDs will be launched next month in Paris. We can expect these TVs to hit Pakistani stores after April 2017. Samsung didn’t say anything on the prices as of yet.
