Samsung adds 55-inch model to 8K range QLED TV

Samsung has expanded its 8K QLED TV lineup to include 55-inch models.

Announced during IFA 2019, the 55Q950R has actually been available in the UK for a short time as a "soft launch" (including John Lewis here). However, it is now official that the global rollout will happen in September.

Bringing 8K TV to a given screen size is an important step for the technology. Many rivals stick to much larger sizes for 8k equivalents.

It's hard to make smaller 8K OLED TVs, for example.

As with other sizes in the Q950R range (which goes up to 82 inches), the 55Q950R has a screen resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels. It comes with Samsung's patented HDR 3000 technology, with high brightness levels for RVB content.

It also comes with 8K image processing and upscaling to ensure full HD and 4K images match the pixel count well. And, Samsung recently announced that its 8K TVs will support HDR10+ content from various vendors soon.

Four HDMI ports can be found on film sets, along with three USB ports and an Ethernet jack for wired networking. Wireless internet connection included.

The Samsung 55Q950R (55Q900R in the US) is now available for around £3000.
