OLED vs QLED ?
We’ve taken quite a bit of time to discuss OLED technology brought forward especially by LG. Samsung took its chances with a proprietary Quantum Dot technology, but starting with 2017, it will be marketed under QLED.
Designed to be flagship models, newest Samsung models are targeted upon stealing the slice of pie from LG – a strong player based on OLED technology. Both brands aim their products at those whom wish for the best picture quality there is.
Newest TVs of 2017 provide enhanced native contrast, richer color palette and better viewing angles, especially on curved-screen models.
Regarding Smart TV, Samsung will still use Tizen, which shall be upgraded to maybe include a dose of artificial intelligence – a tendency that’s catching up with more and more TV brands.
While they might not be quite there with actual QLED, Samsung QLED TVs (you might just as well call them Quantum Dot for now) are getting really close in terms of picture quality.
Special mentions go for Q7 and Q8 models – the flagship units of the Korean producer.
QLED TVs were featured just a few days ago at CES 2017, a show where every producer tried to prove its position in terms of concept technologies and gadgets. More about CES 2017 here.
