WHAT’S NEW: SAMSUNG BEST TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS IN 2021 AT CES 2021

Instead of remote-mounting or ceiling-mounted, Premiere can be positioned a few inches from a wall and projects a large 130-inch image.  The unit’s built-in multi-channel speakers deliver cinematic sound with Acoustic Beam technology. In addition, the projector has received the Samsung Smart TV Tien platform with streaming applications and content broadcasting function. The Premiere offers superior quality home entertainment on the big screen to blend seamlessly with any décor.

QLED TV: QN85A 4K QLED TV (85 “) AND 50” QN90A 4K QLED TV (50 “)

During the quarantine, most of the entertainment moved to cozy home walls. Such circumstances, perhaps, especially pleased gamers who no longer had to look for excuses why instead of going to the movies or other meetings with friends, they prefer to test a new game. Two QLED TVs – QN90A 4K QLED TV (50 ″) and QN85A 4K QLED TV (85 ″) – received the CES 2021 Innovation Awards in the Gaming category. Depending on your settings and preferences, the 50-inch QN90A 4K QLED TV can function as a regular TV that hangs on the living room wall or as a giant monitor. And the 85-inch QN85A 4K QLED TV has everything to optimize your gaming experience: support for ultra-wide 21: 9 and 31: 9 aspect ratios, as well as a unique user interface with easy monitoring and adjustment of settings.

Q950A ТА THE TERRACE

Sometimes some detail is missing for completeness. For such an occasion, there are sound bars that complement the home theater experience with their powerful audio capabilities. This year’s CES 2021 Innovation Awards have won two Samsung sound bars.

MICROLED TVs

The fact that Samsung is finally releasing the highly anticipated versions of its Micro LED TVs is fantastic news. The main snag here is their very high cost, which makes Samsung’s new technologies unaffordable for most users.

Indeed, even though we got a scaled down view of the giant modular displays this year, which the Korean manufacturer considers to be a huge achievement (literally), Microbleeds are still prohibitively expensive for most of us. The question is, is there a more affordable offering from Samsung?

To our delight, it really is. These are equally exciting, brand new Neo QLED TVs.

These premium TVs essentially combine QLED (Quantum Dot Display) technology with Mini-LED backlighting. In short, the Neo QLED uses extremely tiny “new LED” backlights that, instead of a protective layer and traditional LEDs, use a new “microlayer” that directs light through quantum dots. Thanks to Mini-LED technology, Samsung has been able to achieve incredibly bright images while maintaining the relatively low cost of Neo QLED TVs.

Manufacturer’s promise: no picture burnout. Since the small size of the new LEDs means many more elements will fill the screen area, we can expect to see more contrast than last year’s impressive QLED TVs, as well as less noticeable image burn-in.

SMART TV FUNCTIONS

Also recognized at CES 2021 are the smart features that Samsung is introducing into its TVs. The top award, Best Innovation, went to accessibility features across all QLED 2021 models. They help people with hearing or vision problems get the most out of their TVs. In the Streaming category, the Samsung TV Plus video platform was awarded – it provides instant and free access to hundreds of information, sports, entertainment and other channels around the world. And the built-in Multi View mode in all Samsung QLED TVs has won a prize in the category “Software and mobile applications”: it can be used to split the screen into several zones and watch different sources of content at the same time.

The new generation of widescreen TVs offers excellent picture quality, but has yet to justify the high price tag.

The first TVs with a resolution of 16K have already appeared on the market, which in the future may become the standard of quality. TechRadar explained how they differ from 4K and 8K models.

While the standard resolution for TV panels is considered 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) – this is the minimum that should be guided by when buying a new TV. Manufacturers already offer quite a few models with a resolution of 8K (7680 × 4320 pixels), they show a more beautiful and clear picture, but they are much more expensive, for example, the cheapest models in Ukraine are sold at a price of 35 thousand UAH.

Displays with a resolution of 16K have a pixel density 16 times higher than 4K and 8 times higher than 8K. To accommodate that many LEDs on one panel, they have to be made smaller, so everyone must produce as much light as possible to ensure a high-quality picture, so brightness is very important – at least 1000 nits.

In 2019, Sony became the first major brand to introduce a 16K TV to the global market for about $ 877,000. It received an LED display with a resolution of 15360 x 8640 pixels. and a brightness of 1000 nits, providing a very realistic picture thanks to the modular design. Assuming other manufacturers choose the same structure for their 16K TVs, the devices will consist of 16×18-inch square displays with a resolution of 360×360 pixels. each. This will provide a 120Hz frame rate, deep blacks and great contrast.
