Television technology, unlike smartphone display technology, can get a little more complex for the end user to decode. Samsung, popular in the television and display business, launched its line of QLED TVs in India. QLED or Quantum Dot LED can be understood as an upgrade over the existing SUHD or Super Ultra HD television display technology. First unveiled at CES 2017, the new range of Samsung QLED TVs have debuted in India with prices starting at Rs 3,14,900. But what is QLED display technology all about and how does it work? Here s our quick guide on Samsung s new display technology. Also Read - Samsung now lets you make an appointment to shop at its stores, book demo via WhatsApp

Samsung has blended its Quantum Dot color technology with existing LED technology to introduce QLED. To give a brief outline, the Quantum Dots are tiny particles that are smaller than DNA, and millions of times smaller than the diameter of human hair. When exposed to blue light, it emits different colors brightly. So displays using Quantum Dot technology are capable of reproducing real and life-like colors compared to conventional displays. Additionally, the Quantum Dot displays have a longer life span. Samsung used the Quantum Dot technology in its 2016 line of SUHD televisions as well.

When combined with the LED technology, QLED offers HDR brightness levels between HDR1500 and 2000, which basically translates into crisper picture and color reproduction. With the Quantum Dot technology, there is 100 percent of color volume enabled in the new Samsung QLED TVs.

How does QLED work?

As explained above that QLED is essentially a combination of Quantum Dot and LED, the technology places a layer or film of quantum dots in front of a regular LED backlight panel. It is worth mentioning that conventional displays have an 8-bit panel, however, the SUHD or Smart Ultra HD (4K) TVs have a 10-bit panel.

When this 10-bit panel is layered with the Quantum Dot Colour technology, it results in 64 times more color expression of conventional panels, which results in 1 billion different colors. These dots are capable of turning light into color. The blacks appear darker and the whites are brighter because there is no color overlapping or merging of details. This helps produce the true-to-life UHD effect. ALSO READ: Samsung Marshmallow launched, it s not the Android update, but a parental control app

If one talks about the 2017 edition of Samsung s QLEDs, the particles have been tweaked in the third-generation. The particles now have a new metal alloy and a new metal alloy shell which allows for an even enhanced color reproduction.

QLED vs OLED

If one compares the QLED with the OLED technology, the key difference is in the color reproduction through the use of light. In OLED TVs, the spectrum of light is broad, resulting in more color mixing and blurry details. This is much more controlled with the Quantum Dot color technology as the light spectrum is narrow, which also disables color overlapping for real-life effects.

While OLEDs can also produce darker blacks, the QLEDs can produce brighter whites in comparison. This is effectively gauged with HDR content where brightness levels enhance color reproduction, thereby enhancing user experience.

What is Samsung offering?

Samsung launched five QLED models in India – Q7, Q7F, Q8, Q8C, and Q9. Prices of these televisions start at Rs 3,14,900 and go all the way up to Rs 24,99,900. Available for purchase later this month, Samsung is also giving away its newest flagship smartphone Galaxy S8+ to consumers who pre-book the QLED TV between May 2 and May 21. The color on offer for the Galaxy S8+ is Gold.

Talking about the display sizes of the new line of QLED TVs; the Q7, Q8, Q8C, and Q9 will be available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch panel sizes, whereas the Q7F will be available only in 55-inch and 65-inch panel sizes. ALSO READ: Why the Samsung Galaxy S8 at Rs 57,900 is not really-expensive

In terms of design, the new Samsung QLEDs feature an almost bezel-less display design and come with OneRemote which allows users to connect with other peripherals without manually programming the remote controller. There is also a new Smart View app that allows for better mobile-to-TV experience.

The new QLED TVs from Samsung are further equipped with an Invisible Connection cable which basically means there is just a single optical cable to blend seamlessly with the interiors of a given place. While these televisions feature a No Gap Wall-mount, Samsung also has a range of TV stands to choose from.
