CES 2022 hasn’t officially started yet, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from announcing a pack of new MicroLED, mini-LED, and QLED TV models.
At the top of the line is the new model of MicroLED TV, which Samsung says uses 25 million micrometer-sized LEDs to perfectly control the display’s backlighting. It’s a continuation of The Wall that Samsung announced a few years ago at CES, and will be available later this year in 110, 101, and 89 inches for more money than most of us can afford. .
Getting down to a more reasonable level, Samsung is also launching a number of new mini-LED TVs as part of its Neo QLED TV line. The big changes for this year are a new feature called Shape Adaptive Light Control which allows TVs to have better control over flowering and an upgrade to 14-bit backlighting for more luminance points.
Inside the televisions, Samsung’s Neo Quantum processor will be used with an object depth enhancement feature that will better separate foreground and background objects and the new user interface of the TV. ‘Updated home screen that features a number of changes including… um, an NFT store for some reason.
In addition to his doomed to success NFT store, the new home screen user interface also features a section for cloud game streaming services (GeForce Now, Stadia and Utomik) – a potential precursor to Samsung’s cloud gaming service which was announced at the Samsung Developer Conference 2021 – and an Ongoing Watching section that will help you get back to what you were watching when you turned off the TV.
Speaking of games, Samsung says its latest generation of flagship displays will be able to support 4K / 144Hz for next-gen GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce 30-Series cards released last year. Samsung unfortunately won’t help you get your hands on one, but its TVs will support the higher refresh rate for people lucky enough to get their hands on one.
Fancy something more sophisticated? The Frame 2022 has you covered
While MicroLED and mini-LED TVs will absorb the majority of the news cycle during CES, it’s worth noting that Samsung’s most sophisticated display is also getting a facelift for 2022.
Namely, the next version of The Frame TV will offer a new matte screen with anti-glare, anti-glare and anti-fingerprint properties that will be able to counter bad lighting and stray children who will want to touch the TV with their backs turned.
As in previous years, the Frame will be available in sizes ranging from 32 to 85 inches, with final price and release date details to be announced later this year.
That being said, we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s all Samsung is going to announce this week, so be sure to come back with us on Tuesday after Samsung’s opening press conference.
