A further development of Quantum Dot technology, the company promises much improved brightness (quoted at between 1500 and 2000 cd/m2), superior coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, superior colour volume performance (meaning that colour reproduction is maintained across all brightness levels), and critically, better off-axis viewing performance, which has always been a sore point of LED LCD displays - especially Samsung's favoured PVA type. Samsung Electronics introduced at CES 2017 its new "QLED" quantum dot LCD TV lineup featuring the Q9, Q8, and Q7 model series.

This week Samsung showed off their newest TV display technology with their first QLED television.

The design has enhanced as well, now user can mount a Samsung QLED TV smack up against the wall. It's a fair bet that some of the features such as Samsung's Sports section, which allows you to quickly search for relevant sports content that interests you and even send reminders to your Samsung smartphone, may be toned down a little or missing entirely when the new TVs launch in Australia.

Samsung Electronics has announced that its new range of Quantum Dot televisions will be available in the United States from February.

Follow along with TWICE at CES 2017!

While CES 2017 doesn't officially kick off until tomorrow, a number of companies are getting an early start and showcasing new products before the show formally starts. There is a possibility that these TVs will be released by spring of this year. The secret blend of herbs and spices in these reengineered dots up to improve everything from color fidelity and contrast to viewing angles.

At its heart, it is still LCD technology, admittedly with a full array backlight like Panasonic or Sony's top screens, and Quantum Dot does produce great colours and brightness - but not necessarily better than the former's technologies do.

Building off the concept of a "blended" devices that better encapsulates viewers' lifestyles, the firm also revealed a gapless wall-mount system that allows the TV to be hung and adjusted even after it's been put in place. User experience (UX) of "smart hub", which can control peripherals with a remote control, is now expanded to mobile. And that's saying something considering that last year's SUHD with Quantum Dot TVs were already pretty freakin' bright and colorful. Samsung's QLED sets don't have this problem: an extremely wide viewing angle provides a clear picture no matter where you're sitting. Samsung is also now claiming that its QLED TVs can cover essentially 100% of the DCI color gamut used by essentially all current Ultra HD Blu-rays. Music will also make recommendations in the Preview section from its eight music app partners including Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster, Deezer, Sirius XM, Vevo, Melon and Bugs.

New for 2017 is a Sports function that lets you enter your favorite teams and receive notifications when their games air live (unfortunately, it doesn't automatically program your DVR too).
