Samsung Rolls Out 4K Midrange QLED TVs for 2023

Samsung QLED TV

Following up on their 2023 NeoQLED and QD-OLED TV announcements, Samsung continues to slow-roll the pricing and availability of their new 4K QLED TVs. 

The next step in Samsung’s 2023 TV rollout is their midrange QLED models. Most consumers don’t understand the differences between OLED, QD-OLED, Neo QLED, and QLED so it’s easy to understand why people are having a difficult time deciding which technology to invest their money in.

A QLED TV is an LCD-based TV. This means they have an LED backlight and images are viewed on an LCD display panel. However, it adds another component, a sheet of Quantum Dots (that is where the “Q” comes from). The Quantum Dot sheet is placed between the LED backlight and LCD panel to improve color.

Feature Spotlight 

In addition to their display resolution and image display technology, here are some brief feature highlights for Samsung’s midrange QLED TVs. 

Display Resolution: All Samsung QLED TVs have 4K UHD display resolution – 3840  x 2160 pixels = 8.2 million pixels (8 megapixels).

LED Lighting: Instead of the miniLED backlighting, Samsung incorporates in its Neo-QLED TVs, their QLED midrange TVs use either standard-size LEDs in a Full Array backlit panel (Q80C) or Dual LED lighting (Q70C, Q60C). 

  • Full Array backlighting using standard-size LEDs provides good control of bright and dark areas of the screen but is not as precise as the mini-LED backlighting used in Samsung’s Neo QLED TVs.
  • Dual LED is a variation of LED edge lighting consisting of two LED strips, one that emits warm light (yellow) and another that emits cool light (blue). The two strips alternate light output to support a slight improvement in color in combination with the Quantum Dot layer. However, instead of Full Array local dimming, Frame Dimming is used which does not provide precise control of light and dark object detail. For the consumer, Dual LED supports a slight improvement in color balance at the sacrifice of deeper blacks and whiter whites. 

HDR: HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG HDR formats are supported. Samsung TVs do not support Dolby Vision.

Quantum Processor: Content on screen is upscaled with detailed precision to 4K.

Gaming Hub:  Allows gamers to play games from Xbox and other game streaming partners with no downloads, storage limits, or console required. In addition, Game Bar 3.0 provides several gameplay setting options.

Smart Hub: Entertainment, Gaming, and other entertainment content options available all in one place, including Samsung TV Plus. The Hub also provides access to major streaming services with access to a lot more via the Samsung TV app store. In addition, the Hub makes content recommendations based on individual viewing preferences.
