Samsung QLED TVs bring 8K to the masses

We hope you are tired of your 4K TVs because Samsung is ready to put new 8K QLED TVs in your living room this year.


When most people think of CES, brand new TVs usually come to mind. The 2019 edition of CES was no different, with all the big players rolling out their newest designs in preparation for release later this year. Samsung, one of the largest makers of LCD panels on Earth, was at the show in full force and made their upcoming 8K QLED TVs the centerpiece of their exhibition.

The Shacknews street team was on hand at the Samsung booth at got a glimpse of the 2019 versions of Samsung’s QLED TVs. It’s no surprise that the 85-inch model stood out from the rest of the pack. The company is making some big promises about the features and picture quality of their flagship TV line and betting that consumers will choose to go with QLED over something like LG’s OLED displays.

The biggest trump cards Samsung has over its Korean rival are 8K resolution and massive screen size. While LG only offers their conventional OLED TVs in sizes up to 75-inches, Samsung’s QLED LCD TVs go up to 85-inches and have the breathtaking 8K resolution to match. The new TVs will also include Apple Airplay and iTunes support.

The company is also promising the best color performance available in a LCD TV as well. HDR content will look its best with such a wide color gamut and the 8K QLED’s full array of LED backlights. This array will allow the Samsung TVs to deliver inky blacks while offering eye-popping HDR highlights. The high-contrast picture pops off the screen. An assortment of smart device integrations also means that the new Samsung TVs can be the command center for your internet-connected home and their Bixby voice assistant can control it all without the end user having to lift a finger. Model information, including release dates and pricing, will be made available in Q2 2019.
