We gathered Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED and OLED TVs’ specs, prices, and release dates. Samsung today unveiled its 2022 line of TVs, including the Neo QLED 8K and 4K displays, an updated collection of lifestyle models, and the return of OLED. While Samsung had previously shown the TVs at CES in January and has begun taking preorders for certain models, the company is emphasizing that it will provide “Screens everywhere, Screens for all” in 2022.
Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED and OLED TVs
Here’s a rundown of what to expect from Samsung this year, as well as the key features to keep an eye out for and when you’ll be able to buy a TV.
Neo QLED 8K
The Samsung Neo QLED 8K TV’s debut last year made quite a splash, thanks to a new “Quantum Matrix Technology” that utilized MiniLEDs (1/40th of regular LEDs) to generate significantly clearer images, brighter pictures, and contrast levels that rival OLED displays.
Samsung’s Neural Quantum Processor 8K with AI has improved this year’s QN900B and QN800B models, which were already noteworthy. It’s a mouthful to say, but in essence, the new processor utilizes 20 neural networks to improve video and audio playback.
On the video side, Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED 8K TVs can upscale non-8K media (including 1080p and 4 K YouTube and Netflix videos) so that consumers may take advantage of the higher resolution panel. The Neural Quantum processor also aids Real Depth Enhancer, an AI feature that can determine the subject of a scene and apply a 3D layering effect. We’ll have to see how realistic it is in person.
The improved refresh rate (from 120Hz), as well as the new 4K UHD TVs’ brighter displays, are two of the most significant improvements. The Neo QLED TVs also have a higher 144Hz refresh rate (from 120Hz) and greater brightness levels. Users should be able to clearly see the complex details in darker and brighter images thanks to 14-bit processing in this year’s Neo QLED TVs.
The 2022 Neo QLED 8K TVs (particularly the QN900B) feature a 90W 6.2.4-channel sound experience, according to Samsung. The top-firing speakers at the rear of the TVs produce an immersive top-down audio experience, with Dolby Atmos built-in. Object Tracking Sound Pro also helps to define where and what the speakers play based on how subjects in the movies move about. The sound of rain, for example, may be heard from the top-firing speakers.
The new Neo QLED TVs are as thin and bezel-less as ever, from a hardware standpoint. For distraction-free viewing angles, each model is coated with an anti-glare finish – a welcome addition that we’ll see on other Samsung televisions in the future.
The price of a Samsung Neo QLED TV will be the same as it is now in 2022, and the size options will stay identical.
The QN900B has a starting price of $5,000 for the 65”, 75”, and 85”, with availability in mid to late April.
The QN800B is also available for preorder, with 65′, 75”, and 85′ sizes priced at $3,499. The items are expected to be delivered by early April.
Neo QLED 4K
The Neo QLED 4K TVs are also getting a redesign this year, and while not as eye-catching or sharp as the 8K siblings, they are nevertheless receiving one. For the first time in the United States, the QN95B will be available for purchase, showcasing Samsung’s Neural Quantum Processor 4K (which upscales non-4K content like how the aforementioned 8K processor does), MiniLED technology, a One Connect Box with One Invisible Connection cable for a clean and unified power hub, and a 144Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth visuals. Dolby Atmos is also included and used by the top channel speakers on each of these Neo QLED 4K models.
On May 23rd, the QN95B will be available for preorder in 55”, 65”, 75”, and 85” sizes.
The QN90B is a direct replacement for the QN90A and comes in 50′, 55′, 65′, 75”, and 85′ frame lengths, with prices starting from $1,599.
The QN85B is a new model that replaces the QN85A and comes in 55′, 65′, 75′, and 85′ sizes, as well as prices from $1,499.
The complete range of Samsung QLED TVs is now available, including the new Q80B and Q60B televisions, which cover everything you need to know about Samsung’s 4K Smart TV experience. The 50″ version of the Q80B costs $999, while the 43″ version costs $549.
The Samsung S95B is the company’s first OLED TV in nine years. The new Samsung OLED television will have brighter (and more accurate) visuals than ever while retaining the inky black visuals that we’ve come to expect from OLED TVs, thanks to its integration of Quantum Dot technology and the same Neural Quantum Processor 4K found in Neo QLED displays. Aside from upscaling lower-resolution material to 4K, the new TV also has an OLED brightness booster and perceptional color mapping.
The S95B is built around Tizen, so switching between channels and streaming services is simple. The TV includes Object Tracking Sound and Samsung’s Q-Symphony technology to produce the most effective audio experience possible.
The Frame will be available in 43′, 50′, 55′, 65”, and 75′ sizes beginning at $999. It’s complemented by The Serif, which will be available in late May in 43”, 55”, and 65” widths, as well as The Freestyle projector – now available.
