Samsung’s 2021 TV Lineup featuring Neo QLED 4K & 8K Displays

This article will focus on Samsung’s new QLED models which are split between two different series: The standard QLED models which have been on the market for a few years now, and their newest addition, the Neo QLED displays.

For 2021 Samsung has introduced new panel technology that features their new Neo technology which the company claims will improve picture quality by using Quantum Mini LEDs that are about 1/40 the height of a standard LED found in a typical LED TV. Smaller LEDs will allow for more LED zones for better local dimming control. This should result in better contrast and deeper black levels as well as a brighter picture and better color reproduction.

Samsung has a new Quantum Matrix Technology for its Neo QLEDs, which it says will help reduce blooming. However, I have seen initial reports that blooming is still an issue with the QN90A, yet it has been improved over previous model years.

Samsung’s Neo QLED displays will consist of 4K and 8K models.

The 8K models are the QN900A and QN800A.

The QN900A available in 65” ($4,999.99), 75” ($6,999.99), and 85” ($8,999.99) screen sizes.
