Samsung has announced the pricing and availability of its new QLED range of smart TVs that offer better picture quality and an all-new user interface to make them even easier to use.
There is new technology under the hood for the Q9, Q8 and Q7 panels that make up the range to offer greater brightness, more accurate colour expression and an elegant design.
At the heart of the new TVs is Samsung’s Quantum dot alloy material that allows the panel to produce deeper blacks, improved clarity and colour accuracy.
This Samsung QLED range is also the world’s first TV to be certified with 100 per cent colour volume which means colours can be expressed accurately at any level of brightness.
This is ideal for Australian customers who live in bright open plan homes.
Samsung’s Q9 panel can generate luminance as high as 2,000 nits – the brightest TV the company has ever produced while the Q8 and Q7 will produce 1,500 nits.
And thanks to the Quantum dot technology brightness doesn’t need to be compromised to achieve impressive colour performance.
On the design side, Samsung’s new QLED panels also deliver in the style department and customers again have the choice of flat and curved models.
The Q9 and Q7 have flat screens while the Q8 is elegantly curved.
The TV’s Smart Hub interface has also been improved so that switching between sources, live TV, online content and on-demand services is as easy as changing channels.
The TV can automatically recognise a new device when it is connected and name it on your source list so you don’t have to remember what HDMI input it was plugged into.
Cable management has also been addressed with the new QLED TVs whether the TV is mounted or resting on an entertainment unit.
When mounted the TV has a no gap wall mount for quick and easy installation and a clear connection cable that can be hidden in plain sight on the wall instead of having to drop cables down a wall cavity.
When resting on furniture, the TVs cables can run down the back of the TV and through the table top stand.
Samsung’s Q9 series will be available in 65-inch, 75-inch and 88-inch models.
The Q8 and Q7 models will be available in 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch sizes.
The new Samsung QLED range will go on sale from April 17.
