After making its debut at IFA Berlin in September, Samsung has announced its QLED 8K TVs will be launched to the Australian market in 2019, at its exclusive press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Samsung unveiled a 98-inch QLED 8K TV model – it’s largest yet – which is joined by 65-, 75-, 82-, and 85-inch models.
Embedded with the Quantum Processor 8K chip, the 2019 line-up features Samsung’s proprietary AI-based technology that can recognise and upscale any content, regardless of the native resolution, to near 8K quality.
Other 2019 Samsung Smart TVs will offer an improved AI algorithm that leverages subscription services, favourite content and TV viewing habits, while the Universal Guide makes it easier for users to find the perfect show. Users also have more options to find and control content with their voice by using new Bixby and AI Remote, as well as control their Samsung TVs through Amazon Echo and Google Home.
Samsung also announced it will offer iTunes movies and TV shows and Apple AirPlay 2 support on 2019 TV models. Support on 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will be made available via a firmware update. In an industry first, a new iTunes movies and TV shows app will debut exclusively on Samsung Smart TVs.
