The Neo QLED technology will be found on Samsung’s flagship TV line for 8K (QN900A) and 4K (QN90A)

Samsung announced their new Neo QLED TV at CES 2021 on Monday, January 11. 

The Neo QLED TVs become the brand’s flagship TV tech, replacing the QLED TVs of the past. The technology will be found on Samsung’s flagship TV line for 8K (QN900A) and 4K (QN90A) models. 

Physically, the LEDs found on the Neo QLED TV sets are said to be smaller, specifically 1/40 of the height of a conventional LED. This allows for finer control of the LEDs, lessening the problem of blooming wherein light leaks from one LED to another, resulting in a washed out image quality. The technology will also enable improvements in HDR (high dynamic range) imagery. 

8K Neo QLED TVs will also have additional premium audio features such as “Object Tracking Sound (OTS) Pro” whose “dynamic sound corresponds to the movement of objects on screen,” and “SpaceFit Sound,” which “analyzes the installed TV’s physical environment and outputs immersive sound tailored specifically to your space.”

The new TVs will also come with Samsung Health Smart Trainer, which allows the TV to analyze your exercise session with a webcam, and super ultra-wide aspect ratio (32:9) support. 

Samsung also introduced the 110-inch micro LED TV, which has a 99.99% screen-to-body ratio. Samsung’s first micro LED TV was introduced in 2018, called The Wall. Micro LEDs use individual self-illuminating diodes as opposed to a backlight running through a color filter used in traditional LED TVs. This action is said to result in enhanced brightness and better color accuracy.

Prior to their CES 2021 presentation, Samsung also previewed their TV lineup for 2021 at an online event called First Look a week ago. – Rappler.com
