The S95B TV features a 4K QD-OLED panel that delivers excellent color accuracy at high brightness levels. The novelty will be available in two versions: the 55-inch model will cost $2,400, while the 65-inch model will cost $3,500. The TV uses the Neural Quantum 4K processor, which is also used in all of Samsung’s flagship TVs this year. The setup is completed with a high-quality Q-Symphony audio system with Dolby Atmos support. Tizen OS is used as the software platform.

QD-OLED panels have characteristic differences from standard OLED panels. Conventional panels use W)RGB OLED technology, where a combination of light from blue and yellow sources is passed through filters to create red, green and blue sub-pixels and their hues. Some modern televisions also use unfiltered white light sources to boost brightness levels. In contrast, in QD-OLED, blue light passes through “quantum dots” which are used to convert it to unfiltered red and green. As this approach prevents light loss through the filters, the image brightness and energy efficiency of the panel are increased compared to the standard OLED variant. The QD-OLED panel is also able to maintain a high level of color reproduction even at maximum brightness,

As with the rest of Samsung’s TV lineup this year, the manufacturer has updated the QLED 8K and Mini LED 4K models with improved software and variable refresh rates up to 144Hz, plus an anti-glare coating. improved. We also noticed the announcement of the updated Samsung The Frame (2022) TV with a matte screen finish that provides “virtually no glare”. Of course, this will be more noticeable when the TV is showing something in standby mode. The frame (2022) will be available in sizes ranging from 43 inches to 75 inches, starting at $1,000. In the future, Samsung also plans to launch 32-inch, 55-inch, and 85-inch versions of the TV. Most of Samsung’s new products will be available in April, while the S95B model won’t open for pre-order until May.
