The following is a succinct guide for the Samsung QLED TV line for 2018. Samsung had huge success in 2017 with its Quantum Dot-toting LED LCD TVs. The company managed to provide crazy levels of luminance and saturation, although it was stuck with edge-lit LCD designs. The technological limitations affected the 2017 models so how did the 2018 products overcome them?
Available with 4 different screen sizes, 55,65, 75 and 85 inches, this model brings back backlighting, thus not relying on edge lighting. The peak of brightness is offered at 2000 nits and you will be offered the full array local dimming feature which provides hundreds of dimming zones.
This means that Samsung seriously tackled the lightning management problem. The panel includes black and anti-reflection filters, as well as a prism-like structure which improves viewing angles. Samsung’s LED / LCD tech is closer to OLED’s black levels.
This one comes in 55 and 65 inches and it represents the only one in the QLED range that comes in a curved shaped. It resembles the previous model, however, its brightness level is only 1500 nits. It loses the FALD feature, being bottom-edge lit. It keeps Q9FN’s advanced dimming algorithms and black filters.
Three versions are available: 55, 65 and 75 inches. This QLED won’t have you spending a fortune on its services. It provides the same brightness as the previous model and the 75-inched version is completely new.
Five versions are at your choice, from 49 to 82 inches. It used to be that the 6 Series would be most budget-friendly versions. Now they offer you a way of buying a QLED TV without digging too deep inside your pockets.
