Samsung’s 2018 4K TV Lineup

See What’s New for 2018

Samsung recently had its official unveiling of its new 2018 TV product lineup. This year’s models will be spread across 9 series and feature the flagship QLED TV models and an expanded lineup of UHD, Premium UHD and Ultra-Large Screen TVs.

Feature highlights of the 2018 lineup include:

Direct Full Array

The Q8F and Q9F QLED TVs offer Direct Full Array (DFA) technology. Direct Full Array uses a panel with zones of smartly controlled backlighting that adjust automatically to deliver strong contrast, deep blacks and pure whites.

Smart TV, featuring Bixby built-in intelligent voice assistant (QLED and Premium models)

The QLED line’s smart capabilities offer revolutionary ways to set up the TV and find content. Effortless Login uses the new SmartThings app to drastically reduce the time it takes to set up a new TV. The new Universal Guide enables consumers to navigate across supporting streaming services and live TV through one intuitive menu. And with Samsung’s intelligence platform, Bixby, consumers can use voice commands to bring up their favorite shows and control compatible devices.

Ambient Mode (QLED and Premium models)

Ambient mode provides useful information throughout the day – even when consumers aren’t actively watching movies and TV. It can play music as well as display news headlines, traffic reports, and weather updates. For wall-mounted TVs, Ambient Mode can mimic the pattern on the wall behind the TV to create an astonishing visual effect in which the TV blends seamlessly into the wall.

One Invisible Connection (QLED models except Q8F)

The new One Invisible Connection is one slim cable that combines both consumer’s power and AV data to the TV. Available up to 15 meters, it frees consumers from having to place their TV near data or power outlets.

Series Info:

The flagship QLED TVs consists of the QF9, QF8, QF7 and QF6 series, with screen sizes ranging from 49 to 82 inches.

Samsung’s premium UHD displays consists of the NU8500 and NU8000, whereas the standard UHD models include the NU7100 and NU7300 displays.

All QLED and premium models are supplied with Samsung’s One Remote which automatically detects and controls all your connected devices and content. This remote also features voice recognition.
