Many consumers have yet to even truly adopt 4K Ultra HD, but Samsung is getting ready to unleash the first widely-available 8K TV in the USA this fall, and it's absolutely massive.
Samsung's QLED 8K TVs will be available from the end of September 2018.
The 8K QLED TV also incorporates the existing features already available on other Samsung TVs such as the One Remote, Ambient Mode, One Invisible Connection, Universal Guide, and SmartThings. "At this level of pixel density, the individual pixels composing an image become imperceptible to the human eye-even when viewed up close".
Samsung used the opportunity to point out that 8K resolution 7680x4320 pixels holds 16 times as many pixels as Full HD resolution and 4 times as many as 4K resolution, allowing for more detailed pictures.
Unlike conventional sets that use filters for smoothing, and detail enhancement and restoration processing for greater perceived detail, Samsung's 8K AI upscaler technology (delivered by the company's proprietary Quantum Processor 8K) is based on "machine learning" and can cleverly learn (and store in its database) what processing tools to use depending on the content type. In addition, the Q900R features Direct Full Array Elite for enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control, and also 100% Color Volume, enabling users to witness billions of shades of color for the purest color accuracy to-date. Samsung's new QLED TVs boast of up to 4000-nit brightness and supports HDR10+ technology as well. The company did not comment on HDMI 2.1 either but we are chasing details. There is no word as to when these will be coming to India.
"LG's first 8K OLED TV is the pinnacle of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology" said Brian Kwon, president of LG's home entertainment business. The TV is up for display at IFA in Berlin, and as mentioned, pricing and availability is not yet announced.
