More details have been announced for the company's upcoming 8K display.
To coincide with the IFA 2018 tradeshow in Berlin, Samsung has fully revealed its new Q900FN QLED 8K TV. Though pricing has not been detailed yet, the 85" display is set to launch in the US in October (65", 75", and 82" screen sizes are also planned for other regions).
"At Samsung, we've worked tirelessly over the years to move the industry forward when it comes to premium picture quality, and the introduction of the Q900FN with 8K AI Upscaling is an integral component as we look to the future of displays," said Jongsuk Chu, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "We're thrilled to introduce the Q900FN to consumers and are confident that they will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound from our new 8K-capable models."
The Q900FN features support for real 8K resolution, HDR10+ playback, and 4,000 nit peak brightness capabilities. In addition, the TV includes AI-powered 8K Upscaling technology and Samsung's 8K Quantum Processor to upscale lower resolution content from any source to 8K. Likewise, the panel offers Direct Full Array Elite local dimming for superior contrast and black levels. And like other QLED models, the TV uses quantum dot tech to provide DCI-P3 WCG support and 100% Color Volume.
Meanwhile, the display also includes several lifestyle and smart features like support for Samsung's One Remote, Ambient Mode, The One Invisible Connection cable, SmartThings, and the Universal Guide.
Samsung will demo its new TV and audio products at the company's IFA 2018 booth in Berlin from August 30 to September 5.
