Four years after submission The Wall at CES 2018Samsung is preparing to take MicroLED technology into the mainstream. At CES 2023, the company announce MicroLED models will be available in 50, 63, 76, 89, 101, 114 and 140 inches, greatly expanding the amount of choice available to consumers when it comes to new display technology. Samsung has not provided pricing and availability information for the expanded line, but the company claims that the new models are the most affordable MicroLED TVs yet. Since a few of the sets are smaller than any of the MicroLED TVs Samsung has made in the past, you also won’t need to pay for a professional to install them in your home.
Samsung claims that its MicroLED line will set the standard for picture quality in 2023. And based on the 76-inch model’s features, this isn’t just a brag from the company. The set features a 240Hz variable refresh rate and 2ns response time. It also provides 20-bit black detail for “intense” contrast.
Samsung is also promising upgrades to its Neo QLED clusters, starting with the new flagship of the line. The QN900C features an 8K Quantum MiniLED backlit panel capable of a maximum brightness of 4000 nits. As with Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED sets, the QN900C features a 14-bit backlight. However, the TV offers better contrast thanks to the company’s 8K Real Depth Enhancer Pro tweak. Samsung is also promising improved picture quality when watching older movies and TV shows thanks to the inclusion of its new Auto HDR Remastering algorithm, which can automatically apply HDR effects to standard dynamic range content.
For those who prefer a 4K set, there is also the QN935C. Samsung’s new flagship 4K phone features a redesigned power board that eliminates the need for an external connection box and allows for bezels less than 20mm thick. The QN935C also features high-performance amplifiers, allowing the kit to reproduce Dolby Atmos audio without a dedicated amplifier. You can use both the QN900C and QN935C as a smart home hub thanks to the fact that Samsung’s entire 2023 Neo QLED line will have integrated Zigbee and Matter Thread modules.
Last year’s CES saw Samsung launch its new phone QD-OLED technology. This year, the company is expanding its line to introduce additional models, including an all-new 77-inch model. Such as Previously announcedThe 2023 QD-OLED TV line will deliver up to 2,000 nits brightness thanks to the inclusion of Samsung’s new “HyperEfficient EL” OLED material and IntelliSense AI. Samsung says its newer panels are also more energy efficient and support 144Hz refresh rates. In addition, the company has gone to great lengths to get AMD FreeSync Premium Pro boards certified. Samsung has not announced pricing and availability for its QD-OLED line. Expect these details to come in the coming weeks.
