Last 12 months’s S95B QD-OLED (quantum dot) TVs from Samsung had been an thrilling shakeup for the buyer market and gave LG and Sony some lengthy overdue competitors. But the S95B sequence was restricted to simply 55-inch and 65-inch fashions — as a result of these are the one TV sizes that Samsung Display manufactured QD-OLED panels for. It’s model new expertise, in any case.
But solely a 12 months later, we’re going greater. Samsung’s just-announced S95C QD-OLED TV will add a bigger 77-inch mannequin along with the earlier sizes. Every TV maker claims that customers are more and more choosing bigger and bigger units, so this was the plain factor to do as Samsung builds out its OLED popularity.
The S95B was a superb TV, and the QD-OLED panel marked a reliable enchancment over standard OLED when it comes to colour luminosity and perceived brightness. But Samsung handled its share of software program bugs and has launched many firmware updates and fixes for its first OLED TV in years. Some clients additionally acquired barely bent TVs.
It sounds just like the S95C will get even brighter than the S95B; the next-generation panel may even include different advantages like improved general sturdiness, and it’ll use much less energy. HDTVTest’s supremely educated Vincent Teoh put the new 77-inch display through some tests and got here away impressed by the panel’s potential.
Samsung at all times highlights the gaming chops of its TVs, and the S95C is not any exception. The response time talked about beneath is similar as LG’s OLEDs, however Samsung nonetheless has the advantage of having Microsoft’s Xbox cloud gaming app on its Tizen OS. That software program nonetheless hasn’t made its option to different TVs.
With a 0.1- millisecond response time and as much as 144Hz refresh charge, S95C eliminates ghosting – on- display screen blurs when photographs fade reasonably than fully disappearing — and provides calibration and visualization choices not discovered on different televisions. The S95C’s cloud gaming assist with Gaming Hub is peerless, from the world’s first 4K assist for NVIDIA GeForce NOW to availability of Microsoft Xbox, Utomik, and Amazon Luna.
The firm additionally claims that “for the first time on an OLED TV, Samsung OLEDs come with AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro certification for the ultimate OLED gaming experience.” It’s a warfare of buzzwords and certifications with LG at this level; one factor you clearly gained’t get from Samsung is Dolby Vision gaming, although HDR gameplay works simply high quality.
The S95C is not any slouch on the sound entrance both. It’s outfitted with a 70-watt 4.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Pricing and availability information ought to comply with over the approaching weeks and months. Samsung undercut Sony’s QD-OLED TV final 12 months, and I’d count on the corporate to keep up comparable costs this day out. Count me very curious on what that 77-inch mannequin finally ends up promoting for.
