Samsung QE55Q80A 55″ 4K QLED
Samsung QE55Q80AATXXU HDR QLED 4K TV
The 2021 Q80A Series QLED from Samsung features their latest generation of QLED screens delivering stunning colour accuracy and vibrancy driven by a full array backlight that provides excellent contrast by independently controlling the brightness of different parts of the screen to preserve detail of darker areas as well as maintain brightness of lighter parts of the scene simultaneously.
Sound quality has also not been ignored. With Samsungs new AI powered Object Tracking Sound Lite technology which aims to analyse where the sound should be coming from on screen and replicates the positioning using AI processing. This helps to provide a much more immersive sound experience.
The Quantum Processor 4K features Upscaling by taking any content on the screen and enhancing the detail close to that of true 4K, anything from a standard definition to a Full HD source. This is achieved by analysing the information per pixel and using pre-defined algorithms to improve the detail.
This is improved even further by AI (Artificial intelligence) where Samsung constantly tests and improves on the algorithms used to enhance the detail of sub 4K quality in the cloud. By comparing a 4K reference image to a lower quality test image after the enhancement the Artificial intelligence can determine if the algorithm was successful. The benefit of this is when a more successful method is found this can be pushed to your TV via an update seamlessly meaning the upscaling is only going to get better.
The design of the Samsung Q80A Series HDR 4K TV is focused on the premium and luxury. Samsung have included their brand new 3-side boundless design in which the screen covers a very high percentage of the front surface. At a typical viewing distance the thin bezels become a lot less intrusive maintaining focus on the stunning image this TV has to offer.
Also with Samsungs ambient mode the TV is less of a distraction even when not in use, you can opt for a design that blends the TV into the background either matching your wallpaper of choosing from a pre-set design. You can even add additional information such as time or weather to the ambient mode. It certainly beats a black rectangle.
