    What doesn't neo stand for? As if QLED wasn't confusing enough

    Neo QLED is the new Mini-LED back-lighting. Basically a lot more dimming zones.. Around 700 or so for the panel.

    I just don't get the point of 8K Tv's. Most people don't even have TV's big enough to utilise 4K properly.

    Got me a 55" Class Samsung Q70R QLED two years ago. Honestly, that's the best TV I ever owned - I literally see no point in an upgrade right now. I can't even imagine how much better an image can get.

    Paired this one with Nvidia Shield TV Pro, for upscaling older movies. The image is insane with Blue-Ray quality videos.

    Agreed Cryo, keep it for a few more years atleast. New German compounds for OLED, and new AMQLED panels from BOE are coming, which will be a much bigger upgrade. This is more of a side grade for Q70.

    I am in the same boat, got C9 two years ago, and I see no reason to upgrade.

    Active Matrix QLED. To what I understand, this panel does not use backlight as a traditional QLED (which only uses Quantum dots for colour filtration). This is true QLED where Quantum dots actually generate WCG (Wide Colour Gamut) light which makes it self-emissive and very similar to OLED, and hence does not require any backlight. So infinite contrast ratio, as many dimming zones as the number of pixels, etc etc.

    I hope this helps.

    That's exciting. That's been tried for so long by samsung. What's the update? Any link to references?

    Hmm... I don't think Samsung tried this. Samsung was trying to use Blue OLEDs as backlight and then using Quantum Dots for filtering that light into Green and red where required, and passing through blue light where needed. BOE is the only one that tried to use Quantum dots as an emissive layer to my knowledge.

    This actually builds Quantum dots into colour conversion layer itself as an active matrix. I am not aware of anyone other than BOE which tried this. Samsung Display only invests in QDOLED at this moment, which is what I explained in previous paragraph.

    EDIT: Grammar

    The new brighter OLED's from Sony(A90J) and LG (G1) are a pretty big jump in picture quality especially in brighter rooms. The Sony model uses the same LG panel but they devised a special heatsink to be able to drive the panel harder so it can get brighter without overheating. The LG G1 is going to make a great gaming screen as it has a load of gamming features like lag reduction and contrast boosting for dark areas etc. These will filter down into lower end models in 2022.

    1300 nits peak on the Sony is promising.

    Not just promised but delivered. All the early testing is showing 1250-1300 nits.

    I really meant trickling down to regular models and knowing OLED isn't stuck at 800 nits.

    Check this video out at tell me if there a "Jump" to G1. Again, it is a sidegrade from C9 to G1. New compounds have not yet been implemented in current gen of OLED panels.

    Additionally, I lose DTS decoding and 48Gbps ports. To gain better motion interpolation, which I don't even use.

    EDIT: RTings have released the A90J review as well, it is in fact less bright than C9 on both real scene brightness and real scene highlights..

    This post really aged like milk.
