At CES last year, Samsung unveiled its QD-OLED TV line, promising a brightness level that was higher than that of LG, its archrival, and other OLED TVs. However, it was only marginally brighter than LG OLEDs at the time. Yesterday, LG unveiled its 2023 OLED TV lineup, which is said to have peak levels of around 1,800 nits and up to 70% more brightness.
Now, Samsung Display has announced that its 2023 QD-OLED TV lineup will have a peak brightness of up to 2,000 nits, potentially surpassing LG and moving closer to Mini-LED TVs, if the information is accurate. That is because of a brand-new Samsung Display QD-OLED Panel that makes use of Samsung’s IntelliSense AI and a brand-new OLED material called “HyperEfficient EL.” Samsung Display claims that the televisions will also have more accurate colors and use less energy.
Additionally, a wider range of sizes will be available for the new TVs. This year, you will be able to buy 49-, 55-, 65-, and 77-inch televisions, whereas the 2022 S95B only came in sizes of 55 and 65 inches. Tizen OS, HDR10+ (probably not Dolby Vision once more), Bixby, Alexa, and SmartThings are among the other features that the company has yet to reveal. Pricing and availability have also not been made public, but we should find out more in the coming days at CES 2023.
