Samsung has upgraded its QLED standard with the new generation Q8C QLED TV, making OLED technology very difficult.
Samsung’s secret weapon QLED Technology has brought OLED to life. Everyone was surprised when it was long talked about the future of TV technology as OLED Technology. Samsung has also strengthened its leading role in the market by developing the QLED technology. So, it is said that the developed technology will bring the end of OLED Technology.
The new generation of QLED televisions is among the smartest televisions on the market. It is immediately apparent that Samsung is making too many efforts to make the devices easy and fast. The revamped Smart Remote control can be used much better with the next generation Smart Hub. However, with the Smart View application developed by Samsung, mobile devices can also be included in this ecosystem. It is a well-thought-out feature that users can have additional information about the Smart View application.
- Lighter and thinner (2.57mm)
- Self-lighting pixels
- More convincing blacks
- Faster refresh rate (0.001ms)
- Judder and blur-free
- Only found in three screen sizes: 55, 65 & 77-inch
- Muted brightness (1,000nits)
An important feature of the Q8C series, which is available in 55, 65 and 75-inch screen sizes, is that the design has been revisited. There is a 4.2 booster system in this area that can reach 60 Watt output power and is acclaimed for its high sound quality. More importantly, Samsung has developed different concept designs for different living rooms.
In addition to presenting different foot designs with modern, classic and new generation designs, users also have the option of wall hanging apparatuses. The rear side of the Q8C, which has a curved structure, is completely closed. Connection entrances pass through the feet and almost do not appear.
- Brilliant whites
- Ultra-bright (1,500nits)
- Variety of screen sizes between 49-88-inch
- Not as slim (25.4mm)
- Overly bright
- Less convincing blacks
- Slower refresh rate
However, a connection cable that is almost invisible has also been developed. Called the Invisible Connection Cabel, this connection cable is virtually invisible because it is transparent and slim, as televisions destroy the cable gland we used to see in the back. This is a huge advantage especially for users who want to mount a television wall. This 3-meter-long cable communicates with the One Connect Box connection box, which houses all the inputs and outputs. The advantage of this connection box is that you can keep it where you want it. It is also a well-thought-out feature that your intelligent commander does not need to see this box. You can even keep the box in this cupboard. One Connect Box features 363 x 115 x 34 mm and features three HDMI, three USB, optical audio inputs, WLAN, Bluetooth, CI-Slot, Cable / DVB-T2 and two satellite inputs. Samsung also designed an optional 15-meter-long cable for users with very large rooms.
Screen Size: 55/65/75 inch
Panel Type: Curved
Resolution: 3840 × 2160
Brightness: 1500 Nit
Inputs: HDMI, USB, LAN, Composite, Component, CI +
Speaker: 60 watts 4.2 channels
An important feature of the intelligent controller is that it can do a lot of work with very few keys. This metal-like control can also control different devices at the same time. However, he can also perceive the voice commands. So you can control the Q8C with your voice.
When you look closely at the Samsung Q8C, it is immediately clear that the quality of the material is at the top. A similar situation applies to the workmanship of the device. Samsung is offering a very high-quality product to its users and it seems to pay much attention to this criterion.
Quantum Dot difference
Samsung wanted to make a difference with SUHD on top-of-the-line TVs. Those who remember. With Full HD resolution, the picture quality on TV is unbelievably high. Then we met with Ultra HD, 4 times better than FullHD. Ultra HD, also called 4K, was not enough for Samsung, and the SUHD concept turned out to be counterproductive. The S in front of the UHD was set for televisions that feature HDR technology, which offers a rich color spectrum and a high brightness. Samsung has developed Quantum Dot technology to protect this quality.
In Quantum Dot technology, particles in microscopic dimensions are placed inside the LCD screen. These particles are accurate and vibrant colors at maximum brightness. Thanks to this change, which is one of the essential conditions of HDR technology, the difference in the quality of the films is immediately apparent.
The 2018 series using Quantum Dot is on Samsung TVs, so the model number is preceded by the letter Q.
Image quality, functionality, and design make a difference
The biggest advantage of OLED technology is that each pixel can move independently and become a light source. This is not the case with QLED technology. Samsung develops the existing LCD technology and acquires Quantum DOT technology, bringing the image quality to a higher level. QLED technology, which has a very wide spectrum of colors, offers vivid and true color fidelity on this side.
Samsung is very ambitious in this area. The Q8C, a curved television, reaches 100% DCI-P3 color depth. This means that the Q8C with QLED technology has a color depth in cinema standards. This technology takes image quality to the next level thanks to its 1500 Lumen brightness and 5000: 1 contrast (Q-Contrast) value.
He’s not finished. The Q8C also supports HDR technology, also called HDR. Thanks to the HDR10 + standard, HDR movies downloaded from the Internet and Ultra HD Blu-Ray content can be displayed without any degradation in quality.
The Q8C makes a big difference with the fact that it is 50% brighter than the 2016 models, and it also reaches a wide range of visibility at the same time. This is an important feature. Because the brightness of the color can change when you look at the television image directly or from the side. The Samsung Q8C, with its wide viewing angle, minimizes this difference and allows everyone to watch the same image evenly. For example, the black color is not greyish and remains black.
In our experiments, we saw that the Q8C produces a rich and sharp image. The increased sharpness that we see in similar products and disturbs the user is not experienced in this product. The Q8C certainly does not break the line at high performance and high quality. Whether it is a dark environment or the brightest environment, the Q8C always maintains the same quality.
Samsung has created a high-performance QLED product portfolio with the 2017 series. The Q series, which achieves excellent image quality with high brightness and vibrant colors, knows how to make a difference in its design, functionality, and flexibility. We also have to say that the possibility to choose between Invisible Connect Cabel and different foot designs adds a very different air to this product family. The Samsung Q8C, which distinguishes itself among similar products, is definitely a product that should not be ignored.
