Samsung South Africa has announced its 2019 TV line, including new QLED 4K and 8K, available at select retailers nationwide.
The 2019 QLED line-up features more screen size options, stunning picture quality enhancements, dazzling colours from every angle, exciting new design elements and intuitive smart TV upgrades.
Samsung SA Director of Consumer Electronics, Reginald Nxumalo said this year’s line-up is our largest screen size offering ever.
“We design Our 2019 QLED line for users who want the best combination of picture quality, smart TV capabilities and design.
It brings together innovative feature enhancements and exciting content and service partnerships to deliver a ground-breaking viewing experience and unprecedented value,” said Nxumalo.
The 2019 Q80 and Q90 feature ‘ultra viewing angle’ technology, which restructures the TV’s panels, so the back light passes through the panel with lights onto the screen.
In addition, Q70, Q80, and Q90 models offer direct full array technology that uses a panel featuring concentrated zones of precision-controlled LEDs.
These LEDs adjust to display deeper blacks and purer whites, delivering stunning images with the pristine contrast.
Nxumalo said the Q900 Series 8K TVs incorporate Samsung’s proprietary Quantum Processor 8K, which up-scales lower resolution content to crisp 8K although allowing playback of native 8K content.
“This year’s models also use the Quantum Processor 8K that optimises audio and video to the specific content on the screen.
It can create an even more detailed sound experience by tailoring the audio settings to the specific layout of the room,” added Nxumalo.
He said Samsung’s new QLED 4K models also feature their own proprietary Quantum Processor 4K.
It can use AI up-scaling to deliver improved brightness, picture quality and sound optimised for each scene.
