Samsung makes more than half of all 8k TVs released in 2019




Samsung’s director of the Visual Display component, Han Jong-hee, announced at a press presentation that Samsung will be carrying more than fifty percent of all 8k TVs released in 2019 the Samsung label.

Han Jonghee said in the Samsung headquarters to a group of journalists that “more than half of the premium TVs sold this year with 8k are made by Samsung,” writes ZDNet . By 2022, a total of five million 8k TVs should have been sold.

Samsung is serious about televisions with an 8k resolution; by March, Qled TVs with 8k resolution should be available in sixty countries. It concerns televisions with image diagonals of 55, 65, 75, 82, 85 and 98 “, reports news agency Yonhap based on the words of the CEO.

The CEO also commented on the lack of content for televisions with an 8k resolution. “Displays have to come first, followed by content, and the reverse almost never happens”. According to Han, more and more 4k and 8k content will follow as soon as 5g networks in South Korea and the United States become a reality. He also pointed to the processors in 8k TVs that with the help of artificial intelligence are able to scale up content in lower quality to 8k.

In addition to Qled TVs with 8k resolution, such as the already released Q900R where quantom dots are used, Samsung also uses micro-technology. Han indicated that his company will first release microled TVs for commercial parties. The company will then determine its strategy for the mass market based on how consumers value the technology and the capacity to deliver the products at competitive prices.

With microled technology, as with oled TVs, the individual pixels can be switched off, so that perfect black reproduction is possible. The tricky thing about microled TVs is that they are formed by millions of small LEDs; it is not easy to make them small enough so that they are automatically suitable for use in the living room.

A year ago, Samsung already showed The Wall, a huge 146 “-microled television, which was so large because otherwise the 4k resolution could not be achieved.” On the eve of the last electronics show CES , Samsung showed the successor , a 4k television with a screen diagonal of 75 “which is in principle suitable for home use.
