The displays offer four times more pixels than 4K standard displays and new Quantum Processor 8K processors with AI technology. The Quantum Processor processor uses AI technology to enable users the ability to re-create and upgrade the image content to 8K standard.
The QLED 8K TV is equipped with exclusive AI Upscaling technology to upgrade any content format up to 8K equivalent quality. There’s an inbuilt Bixby Virtual Assistant available on all the models which allow users to access their desired content via speech on Samsung’s “Universal Guide” hint function. The TVs additionally come with an Ambient Mode which blends in with interiors for a bezel-less experience.
Building on the Ambient Mode’s ability to blend in with home interiors, the TV is connected to its power source and other inputs through One Invisible Connection and One Connect Box which will be visible against a blank wall.
