Samsung will use its press conference at IFA 2018 to unveil the new Q900R QLED 8K TV complete with 8K AI Upscaling.
Available in four ultra-large screen sizes (65”, 75”, 82” and 85”), Samsung QLED 8K will feature several 8K-ready enhancements, including Real 8K Resolution, Q HDR 8K and Quantum Processor 8K.
To achieve 8K-quality images, the Samsung Q900R features Real 8K Resolution capable of up to 4,000 nit peak brightness – a standard met by most film studios. Q HDR 8K powered by HDR10+ technology is also incorporated to deliver pictures as intended by creators.
Samsung’s proprietary 8K AI Upscaling technology based on artificial intelligence also comes equipped with picture and sound quality to a level compatible with 8K regardless of the original source quality or format. Whether a user is watching content through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or mobile mirroring, the Quantum Processor 8K recognises and upscales the content to appear in 8K quality.
The Q900R also features Direct Full Array Elite for enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control, along with 100 per cent Colour Volume. Smart enhancements, such as SmartThings, add to the Q900R’s convenience factor, while the Universal Guide provides personalised recommendations to easily find live and OTT content on TV.
The new Samsung QLED 8K will be available in the UK from mid-October.
