Since the Bordeaux LCD (2006), the technological leaps that tech leader, Samsung has consistently doled out—often in the role of progenitor—have been astounding at every turn.

The 2019 QLED 8K arrives as a stunning addition that induces lavish sighs. And why not? The ultimate TV experience resides here. Three years after the QLED saw its world premiere, it has become a fixture as “favourite” by both consumers and connoisseurs. Continual customer-focused innovations will do that.

And now, to the specs:

Aside the staggering 8K resolution, the TV is buoyed by a Quantum processor 8K responsible for a rounded Artificial Intelligence feel. Per manufacturers, the new processor is the product of thirty years of “experience in semiconductor technology and unique hardware technology,” making it possible for the device to instantly spruce up even pictures of a lower resolution to 8K quality. It shows.

The QLED 8K also comes fitted with Quantum HDR, Direct Full Array, Quantum Dots-assisted Colour Volume 100%, and Ultra Viewing Angle features that see to immaculate colour expression, stimulate “deeper depth” that lead to an entrancing, “true-to-life” experience (line up 33 million pixels).  

Especially now—and particularly due to how constantly advanced technology is shoved into one’s face, there is an improved capacity to appreciate nuance—and therefore, a searing appetite for it. The QLED 8K meets this precise need: even during black scenes, subtle detail become apparent to the eye, thanks to what manufacturers term as an inch-perfect “backlight zoning control of the Direct Full Array” that fine-tunes light precisely. An added feature is the Ultra Black Elite quality that dispels reflections that impede one’s viewing experience.

Because of the light Concentration and Uniform Light layers, it is actually possible to see the exact same picture, at the exact same quality, from every screen viewpoint.  

A Smart TV worthy of its name, the QLED 8K arrives with a Universal Guide, Bixby on TV, and Intelligent Home functions. Per Samsung, the electronic opus is also compatible with Apple AirPlay2—and will soon support that particular system.

Unsurprisingly, the QLED 8K arrives in a design that is a winner, too. In 2020, not only must technology be progressive, it must also be contained in forward-looking style. That means grace. That means thinness. That means exquisite aesthetics. That means wireless. All boxes ticked, then. The highlight: No Gap Wall-Mount that sees to it that the TV sits seamlessly with the rest of the setting within which it’s been placed.

Finally, the QLED 8K promises 3D euphony. While optics are core to an immersive visual experience, sound an essential piece of the puzzle. In its analysis and optimisation of sound (tailored to the user’s habits, time of day etc), the product delivers a majestically ambient sound. The Q series Soundbar that accompanies the TV also gels perfectly both in design and function (it launches Dolby Atmos and DTS:X).

The closing verdict is this: t’s not only safe to describe the new QLED as a consummate audio-visual experience, it’s also overwhelmingly apt.
