For most people, the TV is the focal point of their lounge, so choosing the right one is crucial. If you want a set that shows off content with an unparalleled level of detail and precision, while also making a great centrepiece for your living space, Samsung (opens in new tab) has just the thing…
Because its TVs use QLED technology, they harness the power of Quantum Dots. These are tiny semiconductors that are only a few nanometres in size. They allow each individual pixel to emit its own light, and are capable of generating incredibly bright, vibrant colours, making for stunning brightness levels and superb contrast, making for an altogether more immersive viewing experience.
But picture quality is just half the battle.
The Frame: Less a TV, more a work of art
The Frame is the most design-forward TV of recent years. As the name suggests, it resembles a picture frame, and can even be hung near-flush on the wall just like a painting thanks to its Slim Fit Wall Mount that comes in-box. Don’t want to wall-mount it? No problem. You can also purchase the sleek Studio Stand that’s perfect for showing it off.
It has some seriously home-upgrading features, too. When not showing TV or movie content, it can display works of art or beautiful photographs on its screen, making it a virtue even when you’re not watching. And you can personalise The Frame even further with a choice of over 40 bezel colours available to purchase, so you can match the other picture frames in your collection, or you could choose to coordinate it with your home decor.
Of course it’s no good having a work of art if it’s blighted by a ball of cable spaghetti spilling out of it. The Frame has just one 5m near-invisible cable from the TV to Samsung’s acclaimed One Connect Box. This sealed unit houses all the cables, keeping them out of sight, so they don’t detract from the viewing experience.
The Frame comes in seven sizes: 32, 43, 50, 55, 65, 75 and 85 inches. Whether switched on or off, intended to stand out or blend in, The Frame is the TV your home has been waiting for.
Neo QLED 8K QN900A: Taking QLED into the next generation
For the ultimate in picture quality, look no further than the Samsung QN900A Neo QLED 8K TV. Its Neo QLED technology is even more advanced, leveraging Mini LED backlights. Because they’re smaller than standard LEDs, there can be more of them, which increases the number of independent dimming zones. The Quantum Matrix Technology PRO state-of-the-art technology precisely controls these LEDs to give greater control over the brightness levels, and hence greater contrast. Add in Samsung’s AI-powered processor that uses deep learning to adjust the picture output on the fly, and you’ve got pixel-perfect contrast unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
But the picture smarts don’t end there. Samsung has slimmed down the bezels to give the QN900A an edge-to-edge Infinity Screen. With less border to catch your eye, you’re more drawn into the on-screen action. And with its Anti-Reflection Screen, you won’t be distracted by any glare. It’s just you and whatever’s on-screen.
The resolution is 8K, which is double that of 4K sets. Admittedly 8K content is a bit thin on the ground at the moment, but it means this set is future-proofed, so when it does become more widely available, you’ll be ready.
It’s a high dynamic range picture too, thanks to Samsung’s HDR10+. This enhances the difference between the light and dark parts of the picture, with more gradual steps in between. That means brighter whites, blacker blacks, and more dark detail than ever before.
Of course, visuals are only half of the viewing experience. And the QN900A doesn’t disappoint in the audio department, either. It features Object Tracking Sound Pro – 10 speakers fire sound from every angle including the centre of the screen, making for a truly immersive audio experience.
It also features the same One Connect Box, meaning no tangled cables in sight.
The QN900A comes in three big-screen sizes: 65, 75 and 85 inches. It’s the perfect TV for early adopters and those on the bleeding edge.
Extra sound for less
Samsung is also running a promotion at the moment, giving you up to £300 off selected Q-Series soundbars when bought with any TV. A soundbar is the quick and easy way to upgrade your TV’s sound while taking up less room than a surround sound system. And with this deal, it’s now more affordable than ever.
