ith our new Ambient Mode, you can elevate your living room with decorative content, useful information and your own photos, You won’t notice the TV on the wall as it blends perfectly with your décor, and it can even play a bit of light background music.*If we are to go back in 2017, OLED definitely came out on top. However, due to its pricing, some manufacturers are still not hugging the OLED technology. One, in particular, is Samsung. This giant Koren manufacturing brand still plans on sticking to its QLED weaponry, with its huge reveal of 2018 range largely being a refinement of what we saw last year.

With the latest 2018 QLED range of Samsung, the most notable addition of their 2018 QLED TVs are direct, full-array backlight for the top model in the range, the Q9FN and Q8FN. This addition will introduce localised contrast control while further increasing the display brightness.

With this, it seems that Samsung is focusing more on improvements to colour with an increase in luminous efficiency of 5% thanks to some of their changes in their production of quantum dots. Their focus will also be on HDR, with every QLED except the Q6FN (more information below) now hitting at least about 1500nits. Samsung refers to these two developments as Q Colour and Q HDR respectively.

What’s more is that 2018 comes with the addition of Samsung’s new entry-level QLED model, the Q6FN, which is already available in sizes ranging from 49in to 82in. All of which should help QLED take the fight to OLED to budget consumers as well as on the entry-level stage.

Samsung QLED TVs

Similar to how Samsung run their market in 2017, QLED will still be the leading technology and product of the brand’s TV line again in 2018. These models are expected to start appearing in shops towards the end of March.

Quantum Dot Technology

Q Colour

Samsung Quantum Dots are basically nano-sized, cadmium-free, that is finely tuned particles that turn light into brilliant billion plus colours that are produced by the display of QLED TVs.
Quantum dots are inorganic particles that resist wearing out according to Samsung.

Ambient Mode

The 2018 QLED TVs now features the new Ambient Mode. In this mode, the TVs can elevate your living room with decorative content, useful information and even with your own photos. You won’t notice the TV on the wall as it blends with your décor, and it can even play a bit of light background music.
