Neo QLED technology: What is it?

The Neo QLED technology is essentially Samsung’s way of describing its Mini LED technology on its 4K and 8K flagship TVs. Samsung describes the new technology using 1/40 the height of a conventional LED for backlighting. “Instead of using a lens to disperse light, and a package to fix the LED in place, the Quantum Mini LED has incredibly thin microlayers filled with many more LEDs. Quantum Matrix Technology enables ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs, preventing blooming—and allowing viewers to enjoy the content as it’s meant to be seen.” Also Read - Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus spotted in new 'Phanton Green' color online

In layman’s English, the Neo QLED packs smaller LED light sources without any lens for backlighting. Compared to the conventional LED backlighting, Mini LEDs help with better-localized dimming, improving the contrast as well as brightness.

Samsung has not revealed the prices yet but the microLED technology could make these limited to the ultra-premium segment for now.

Samsung also revealed new models for it’s The Frame series televisions. The new model is now much thinner than the outgoing model and offers customers a choice of bezels in five colors and two styles. Samsung offers a subscription service to its TV Art Store that gets you access to over 1400 art pieces.

Solar remote controller

Samsung is going all-in on its intentions to go green and one of the ways it is doing so is by eliminating the need for AAA removable batteries. The new remote controllers for Samsung smart TVs in 2021 will have a rechargeable battery built-in and include a solar panel for recharging the battery. Samsung says the panel can charge the battery in both outdoor as well as indoor lighting. The controller is made of recycled plastic. Samsung says the remote can help save 99 million AAA batteries over the course of seven years.
