Samsung has long been at the forefront of TV tech, and Samsung Neo QLED – its latest technology – pushes the envelope even further. Combining brilliant whites with plenty of dark detail, and sound that follows you around the room, they make watching a film a truly immersive event.
They’re all available at Currys PC World. And with the TV schedules packed with thrilling dramas this autumn, there’s never been a better time to buy a new TV.
In with the technology
Samsung’s Neo QLED is a real breakthrough in terms of TV tech. Without getting too technical, it’s a screen technology that harnesses the power of Quantum Mini LEDS, which are 40 times smaller than normal LEDs. Because they’re smaller and finer, they’re more precisely controlled – in other words, the TV’s brains can tell sections of the screen to react in a certain way (going darker or brighter, say) with pin-point precision.
The result? Ultra-focussed luminance and a greater difference between light and dark sections of a scene (what’s known as contrast).
As a side benefit, because the Quantum Mini LEDs are so much smaller, they allow for slimmer screens, meaning the TVs themselves can be more stylish and discreet.
Samsung Neo QLED technology builds on Samsung’s Quantum Dot used in its standard QLED sets – this has previously set new standards of vibrant brightness and colour. Samsung Neo QLED takes it to a whole new level. By bringing in ultra-fine highlights and deeper blacks, it adds a phenomenal level of depth to your on-screen picture. Paired with Samsung’s state-of-the-art AI-powered Neo Quantum Processor, it fine-tunes brightness and sharpens contrast for an entirely mesmerising viewing experience. Those moody dramas have never looked better.
Samsung QN95A Neo QLED 4K Smart TV
If you want the best of the best, look no further than Samsung’s QN95A. It features Samsung’s Quantum Matrix technology, which controls the ultra-fine, super-sharp Quantum Mini LEDs with surgical precision. Coupled with the AI-powered processor, it delivers epic contrast levels, for the most engrossing 4K viewing experience yet.
Also on board is Quantum HDR 2000 powered by HDR10+. This digs up a phenomenal amount of detail in every shot, and thanks to HDR brightness, it will appear in true-to-life quality with rich contrast and remarkable contrast. HDR10+ also means every frame is optimised, so every second of every film looks just as the director intended.
And it’s all powered by the Samsung Neo Quantum Processor 4K. Think of this as the brains of the TV. It constantly tweaks the picture and sound to ensure that they’re constantly optimised, meaning brightness and contrast are always looking their best. It also upscale the resolution of what’s on screen to 4K, while AI sound is constantly adjusting the audio output to account for any noise in your room.
Samsung QN94A Neo QLED 4K Smart 4K TV
Or maybe you would prefer the Samsung QN94A? This TV boasts the same Samsung Quantum Matrix and Quantum HDR 2000 powered by HDR10+ technologies, and (like the QN95A) combines them with an Ultra Viewing Angle with Anti Reflection Screen (wide viewing angle on 50’’ QN94A). This anti-glare screen absorbs reflections, so you can see every moment from every angle, without the sun’s rays or reflections from your room lights intruding on the action. Perfect for those bank holiday afternoon movies.
The audio is also a real head-turner, thanks to Object Tracking Sound Plus. Eight speakers built into all four sides of the TV create truly immersive 3D audio that really travels around the screen. You’ll follow every chop of a helicopter’s blades as it flies overhead, and hear every roar of the crowd from every seat in the house.
Samsung QN85A Neo QLED 4K Smart TV
Some of these features aren’t only found on the top-of-the-range models. Samsung’s QN85A TV packs many of the same features as its brethren, but costs much less. It offers Samsung’s Quantum Matrix technology and Neo Quantum Processor 4K, along with Quantum HDR 1500 powered by HDR10+. This is a slightly scaled-down version of that found on the other two models, but still delivers remarkable HDR brightness, bringing you rich blacks, bright whites and deep contrast. It also has the same HDR10+ tech, which optimises every single frame so it looks as good as it possibly can.
It also has Wide Viewing Angle with Anti Reflection – this reduces reflections to make the on-screen content much, much clearer, while Object Tracking Sound uses six speakers in the sides of the TV to track audio across the screen, delivering a truly immersive audio experience. Add Samsung’s bestselling Tizen operating system, with its abundance of apps and customisable Smart Hub, and you’ve got all the TV you ever need.
