The Samsung S95B QD-OLED TV will release in 55″ and 65″ variations (same as Sony’s version using the same Samsung panel). The 55″ version is listed on Amazon for $2,199 USD ($2999 AUD) for the 55″ and $2,999 USD ($4,000 AUD) for the 65″. Given this technology is meant to be superior to LG’s OLED it’s definitely cheaper than expected, when compared to the LG C1 OLED.
Similar to that of LG OLEDs, the side profile is extremely thin at the top and gets bulky near the bottom where all the HDMI ports and such are. Samsung is calling this “LaserSlim”. The TV will have 120Hz capability and four HDMI 2.1 ports. As with other models in the 2022 range, it has Samsung Object Tracking Sound, uses the Tizen platform for its OS and also has Dolby Atmos. The TV is powered by a Neural Quantum Processor that is also built into the Neo QLED models.
QD-OLED technology is supposed to combine the best parts of both LED and OLED technology. It’s very complicated technology but basically to dumb it down, QD-OLED uses a blue OLED layer between the standard Samsung QLED technology to somehow retain those black levels with the brightness that we’ve come to expect from Samsung’s high-end QLED TVs, which should hopefully result in a brighter image.
We don’t have local release details for the S95B QD-OLED TV yet, but as soon as do, we’ll let you know. It’s definitely an interesting time for TVs and with Samsung getting into the OLED game, no doubt LG will start feeling a little bit more pressure as they’ve been able to dominated that market for 5+ years now.
