Samsung unveils 8K QLED TV

LG shows the world's 8K OLED TV at IFA 2018

LG shows the world's 8K OLED TV at IFA 2018

The TV will also be able to run at this resolution at a peak brightness of 4,000 nit, said Samsung.

Let's get into the specs: this is a massive 88-inch TV with 7680 x 4320 resolution, which feels like too many pixels to really be looking at.

In regards to OLED technology, LG explains: "with OLED TV shipments in the market expected to double in 2018 and reach over nine million units by 2022, LG will continue to increase the OLED share in its premium TV portfolio and drive large scale consumer adoption of OLED TVs".

The 8K sets will only be available in 65-, 75-, 82- and 85-inch screen sizes, which makes sense since even Superman's peepers would struggle to notice any difference in picture quality between 4K and 8K on smaller screen sizes.

Could Your Forehead Wrinkles Be A Sign of Heart Disease?
They say that doctors should use wrinkles as a "red flag" for heart disease and offer extra checks to those who look raddled. Individuals were given a zero for no wrinkles, while those who had numerous deep wrinkles were assigned a score of "three".

And for video quality that may not seem up to the 8K challenge, they also contain 8K AI upscaling tech powered by AI.

"Whether a user is watching content through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB, or even mobile mirroring, the Quantum Processor 8K recognises and upscales the content to appear in 8K quality", said Samsung. Additionally, the Q900R boasts enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control courtesy of its Direct Full Array Elite feature. This gives users the purest colour accuracy to date. For example, the TV recognizes and analyzes a number of connected entertainment devices like audio devices connected via optical cable with One Remote, then auto switches the TV's image source and audio output for an optimized viewing experience. LG is introducing the first 8K OLED TV at the show, reports DigiTimes.

Samsun'gs new 8K QLED range will be available globally from September onwards. "We're thrilled to introduce the Q900R to consumers and are confident that they will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound on our new 8K-capable models".
