Samsung reveals pricing of its 2019 QLED TVs and soundbars
Samsung has announced the pricing and availability of its 2019 home entertainment range which includes 8K TVs, its 4K QLED TVs and the line-up of soundbars.
There are now more screen sizes to choose from with even more that are 75-inches and above.
The 2019 Samsung QLED TVs offer improved picture quality, wider viewing angles, a more intuitive user interface and new design elements.
“Our 2019 home entertainment range has been designed for Australians who want the best combination of picture and sound quality, smart TV capabilities and design,” says Jeremy Senior, head of consumer electronics at Samsung Australia.
“Samsung Electronics has been the world’s number one TV manufacturer for 13 consecutive years.
“During this time, our TVs have continued to raise the bar in an effort to deliver the best in home entertainment.
“Big screen TVs have become the norm in many Australian homes and with bigger screens comes the need for clearer, more detailed pictures. We need to continue to deliver a premium picture quality to match the size of these televisions.
“We’re excited to be the first to bring 8K technology into Australian homes through our QLED 8K range delivering detail, depth and immersion like never before.”
Samsung has improved its Quantum Dot technology which can handle bright rooms and still maintain colour integrity.
Also onboard is HDR10+ and Ultra Bright technology which looks after contrast and colour.
Brightness has been optimised to handle typically sunny Australian homes with Anti-Glare technology knocking out all the reflections.
On the Q80 TVs and above, Samsung has included wide viewing angle technology so the colour and brightness maintains its quality even when you haven’t scored the plum spot on the couch.
On the Q75 and above models, viewers will enjoy the Direct Full Array Elite which controls the backlight for real time adjustments to enhance the black levels and rich colours.
There is a deeper layer of intelligence on the 2019 Samsung TVs which make use of the Quantum Processor with AI.
A result of that innovation will include Intelligent Mode to adjust screen brightness, sound and volume.
AI Upscaling is another standout feature which uses a massive database to create a formula to detect and restore edges and recreate unique textures while reducing picture noise.
Samsung’s smart TV platform can automatically recognised connected devices like Blu-ray players, set top boxes and gaming consoles instead of leaving customers guessing which input is which.
The TVs will also work with Bixby, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and will also have Apple’s AirPlay 2 in the second half of the year via a software update.
Samsung’s 2019 TVs will also allow viewers to access their iTunes movie library through a new Apple TV app.
There is even more functionality for the Samsung TV when no one is watching TV with an improved Ambient Mode which can display information, images and even recreate the wall it is mounted on.
There are also no more messy cables thanks to Samsung’s One Clear Cable on select models which brings in your sources and power in a single cable.
Samsung’s new Q70 soundbar combines numerous innovations and provides a satisfying audio experience to compliment the viewing experience.
One is Acoustic Beam technology and object-based sound to deliver Dolby Atmos and DTS:X from a single soundbar.
Samsung’s Adaptive Sound also has 4K HDR10+ pass through and the ability to pair wireless rear speakers on every soundbar in the line-up.
Samsung’s TVs will go on sale on April 1 with the following retails prices below.
