Samsung has whipped the covers off its lineup of 2018 TVs, just a day after LG did the same. Along with some OLED devices, the flagships of the range are built with Quantum dot light-emitting diode (QLED) display technology, and the entire line varies in size from a modest 40 in up to a monstrous 88 in. Since they can take up so much living room real estate, Samsung has also packed in a few new features to let the TVs earn their keep even while not in use.
This is the second year in a row where QLED displays have headlined Samsung’s TV lineup, after the company first unveiled the technology at CES 2017. In these systems, wedged between the LED backlight and the LCD screen is a layer of metal alloy quantum dots, which can reportedly reproduce 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, and provide better contrast and brightness.
