At the IFA press conference, Samsung announced that the new quantum LED TV range is equipped with various 8K-ready enhancements such as Real 8K Resolution, Quantum HDR 8K for high-end visual quality and Quantum Processor 8K powering faster and smoother performance.
In addition to a new 8K engine Samsung has released a 'Real 8K Resolution engine, a Q HDR 8K and an 8K Quantum Processor. The TV will also be able to run at this resolution at a peak brightness of 4,000 nit, said Samsung. Thus far, no pricing has been detailed by either company. This is what generates four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV and 16 times more pixels than a full HD TV.

Since there is no video content available in the market that has been produced at 8K quality, the artificial intelligence function will process lower quality videos and bring them up to a level compatible with 8K.
Samsung didn't want to feel left out with the South Korean giant unveiling their first 8K QLED TV that is coming soon, with the Q900FN and its minimalistic design and great built-in features. This can work with multiple sources, including streaming, HDMI, USB, mobile mirroring and set-top boxes. It also comes with a slew of features like multiple device connectivity, and an ambient mode that showcases lovely images, weather, news and more on the screen.
