Samsung has unveiled its Q950 zero bezel 8k flagship TV at CES 2020. Utilising an Infinity design, the screen’s bezel has actually been reduced to just 2mm, making it all but invisible from a typical viewing difference.

The stunning new model heads up an expanded range of 8k screens from the brand, and paves the way for a wider, cheaper selection of 4k UHD models.

Even though the Q950TS has a full array backlight, it’s only 14.9mm deep. It also manages to incorporate a multi-driver speaker array. This 4.2.2 speaker configuration has drivers placed top, bottom and on the sides, and uses object tracking for soundstage steering. Automated audio calibration is handled by a microphone in the remote control.

The Q950TS will be supported by the Q800T series, with screen sizes from 55-inches upwards.

The brand’s new 8k screens will introduce enhanced upscaling for 4k and HD sources, using new neural network Deep Learning processing. Benefits include enhanced texture creation, noise reduction and detail restoration.

None Samsung’s 2020 screens support Dolby Vision, however they do boast refined active tone mapping, which is applied to both HDR10 and HDR10 plus on a frame-by-frame basis.

Samsung engineers have also improved contrast and peak HDR brightness, by adopting new power management techniques for the backlight array. The company says this allows for a boost of 20 per cent over its 2019 models.

The Q950T also introduces Q-Symphony sound. This allows the set’s speaker system to work in conjunction with a 2020 Samsung soundbar to create better sonic immersion with Dolby Atmos, 5.1 and stereo sources.

The new Samsung 4k QLED 2020 TV range comprises the Q60T, Q70T, Q80T and Q90T, which offer scaled performance benefits, including 4k Quantum upscaling.

Both the Q60T and Q70T utilise a Dual LED backlighting technique devised for edge-lit QLEDs. Two different LED colour temperatures improve contrast, with better black levels and improved viewing angle.
