Samsung’s new 8K TV has 14 different screen layouts and Adaptive Picture
I can’t afford this TV.
Our phones have been doing it for years – looking at the lighting in the room to adjust the screen to reduce glare and improve the picture. Now, Samsung’s new 8K TV lineup (which will release in 2020) sets out to do the same, along with some other nifty features.
TVs continue to get bigger and this 8K TV definitely is for the crowd that believes that bigger is better. “8K resolution has the potential to transform our industry. Screens over 75” are the fastest growing segment in the market, and that segment is where 8K resolution matters the most,” said Joe Stinziano, Head of Consumer Electronics Business at Samsung Electronics America.
The 2020 QLED 8K lineup features almost zero bezels and Adaptive Picture
These TVs are thin (obviously) but also all but remove any bezel around the edge. But that’s just the beginning. In addition to 8K, the TV will use AI to down-convert 8K before up-converting it again on the display.
