Image Matrix Tech on Sky News: Samsung 2023 QD-OLED prices

Published

on

In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we took a look at the OLED TV market in 2023. OLED TVs have set the benchmark for television technology over the past decade – but not all OLEDs are the same.  Samsung has Quantum Dot OLED panels and LG WOLED panels – that have an extra white sub-pixel to make them brighter. The Samsung QD-OLED does not need an extra white sub-pixel.
Samsung launched its new QD-OLED TVs this week. The Samsung S95C and S90C are now available in 77 inches. This is impressive considering the first models were only released last year.

Samsung OLED has earned the honour of being the World’s First Pantone-Validated HDR OLED. The TVs are verified to accurately produce 2,030 Pantone colours and 110 skin tones. I noticed improved natural colour with the new Samsung OLED modes.  But while colour and brightness are Samsung’s strengths – I’ll be testing motion before my review is complete.

AFTER A DECADE OF DOMINANCE ARE LG OLEDs UNDER PRESSURE?

Yes they are but what we’ll see in a few weeks is set to blow us away. LG OLEDs are already very good but they are always chasing brightness – a weakness of traditional OLED. So keep an eye out for the G3 with MLA technology, or Micro Lens Array. This increases the brightness without using more power. So LG is tweaking its legacy tech to get great results. What this means for consumers is value in 2022 TVs. I’m testing LG 65 inch CS model right now – it’s going for $2500. 2022 models are still amazing value because the tech is mostly up-to-date.
