Samsung's QLEDs are here.
The Samsung Q Series of QLED LED-lit LCD HDR-capable 4K TVs was launched today. The announcement included pricing for the company's along with a number of other items in its 2017 home entertainment product lineup
AVS Forum members are no strangers to the Samsung Q Series models: The Q7C, Q7F , Q8, and Q9, which were first announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, back in January.
These are edgelit-LED LCD TVs, with the Q7 (available curved or flat) using a bottom-edgelit design, the curved-only Q8 using a top and bottom edgelit design, and the flat-only Q9 using a dual side-edgelit design. All of these TVs are claimed to offer 100% DCI/P3 color volume, which means you'll see richer colors when watching HDR content with wide color gamut—especially tones found in the highlights.
You can preorder now.
