Just bought a Samsung 4K TV? This CES 2017 news will probably make you want to return it

SAMSUNG announces its new range of 4K QLED TVs at CES in Las Vegas and these new tellies represent yet another major leap forward.

 

Samsung has just lifted the lid on its next generation of 4K TVs and these look set to take home entertainment to a whole new level.

The new Q9, Q8, and Q7 series TVs include QLED technology with the all-new lineup from the Korean tech firm offering dramatically improved colour performance.

Samsung says that its new QLED TVs are capable of reproducing 100 per cent colour volume.

This means they can express all colours at any level of brightness.

For example, a leaf can be perceived as different colours from yellowish green to turquoise, depending on brightness of the light.

Samsung QLED TV display can capture even subtle differences in colour pertaining to brightness. This kind of colour detail cannot be easily depicted in the traditional 2D colour space models.

This breakthrough is a result of Samsung’s adoption of a new metal Quantum Dot material – making it possible for the TV to express a significantly improved range of colour with much greater detail compared to conventional TVs.

The new Quantum dots allow Samsung QLED TV to express deep blacks and rich detail regardless of how light or dark the scene is, or whether the content is being played in a brightly lit or darkened room.

With its metal alloy Quantum Dot technology, brightness no longer has to be compromised to boost colour performance, which is also maintained regardless of how wide the viewing angle may be.

“With the QLED TV, we’ve solved problems that everyone – and every home – has experienced; cable clutter, thick wall mounts and a slew of devices sitting right under the TV,” said Dave Das, Senior Vice President of Consumer Electronics Marketing for Samsung Electronics America.

“With our 2017 lineup, the focus remains where it should be—the content on the screen —not everything surrounding it.”

The improvements to design and usability in the QLED TV series include a single, transparent ‘Invisible Connection’ cable, through which all of the peripheral devices can be gathered and connected to the TV.

This is in addition to the ‘No-gap wall-mount’, which makes it quick and easy to affix the TV flush against the wall.

Or, for those who prefer not to mount the TV, Samsung is offering two new stands designed to elevate and showcase the QLED TVs as beautiful home accessories all by themselves.

Consumers can choose either the ‘Studio Stand’, which resembles an easel with a painting, or the sleek ‘Gravity Stand’, which when attached to the TV, resembles a contemporary sculpture.

There’s no word on price or launch date for the Q series but we’ll update this article as soon as we hear more.

The news comes as Samsung are reportedly set to unveil brand-new functionality for its Smart TVs during an announcement at the CES expo in Las Vegas.
