4K 100Hz Ultra HD QLED TV, Quantum Processor 4K, Full LED Local Dimming and HDMI 2.1

Unlike the 2021 vintage QLED Ultra HD 4K Q80A TV series with four models, the Samsung Q80B has five diagonals, Samsung QE50Q80A (50 ”, 127 cm), Samsung QE55Q80A (55 ”, 140 cm), Samsung QE65Q80A (65 ‘ ) ‘, 165 cm), Samsung QE75Q80A (75’ ‘, 191 cm) and Samsung QE85Q80A (85’ ‘, 216 cm).

Samsung Q80B, full LED locally dimming backlight system

Before going any further in the presentation of these televisions, you should know that the Q80B monitors are key specimens in the line of the Korean manufacturer, between the QLED models and the QLED Mini LED. To sum up, they send most of the specifications for the Samsung QN85B models, but without the Mini LED backlight, here replaced by a Full LED Local Dimming system. If the philosophy remains the same, with diodes placed behind the LCD panel, there are significantly fewer of them, the same for the number of zones (48 according to our information).

Samsung Q80B, focus on design

The design of the Q80B vintage 2022 series, called Q Stylish, remains identical to the Q80A vintage 2021 televisions. overall elegance. Note that the thickness of the TV is greater than for those from other series that Full LED Local Dimming backlight system requires.

Of course, there is no One Connect box on the Samsung Q80B TV, the connection is available directly on the TV, on the back.

Samsung Q80B, main specifications

In terms of specifications, the Samsung Q80B Ultra HD 4K QLED TVs have a built-in 10-bit and 100 Hz LCD panel with a PQI 3800 fluidity index (PQI 3200 at 50 ”). They also benefit from the Quantum Processor 4K processor, which blends Machine Learning and Deep Learning processes for a total of 16 artificial intelligence modules (compared to 20 on the higher TV series) at work for even better picture quality.

As a reminder, the Deep Learning process is based on a neural model, that is, without human intervention (as opposed to Machine Learning) in the learning of the processor. This independently decides the necessary changes to the image processing algorithms to regain optimal quality from a degraded display.

Another enhancement is the EyeComfort Mode feature, which, when connected to the Internet, subtly changes the brightness and color temperature of the image according to the time of day, for optimum viewing comfort at all times. The latter, for example, reduces the blue light emitted in the evening to promote sleep in sensitive people.

Samsung Q80B, top light at 1500 nits

Although the Q80B monitors lack a Mini LED backlight system, their maximum light output is still excellent at 1500 nits. This is a more than interesting element for an unprecedented HDR experience, knowing that the Q80B monitors handle HDR10, HDR10 +, HDR10 + Adaptive and HDR HLG.

Unfortunately, the Q80B monitors do not have the QLC (Quantum Light Control) coating with an extremely low reflectance index (reflections are almost non-existent). On the other hand, they benefit from an enlarged viewing angle via Ultra Viewing Angle Technology (inaugurated in 2019).

Samsung Q80B, Adaptive Sound +, AVA, OTS and Dolby Atmos

The audio section is also in the spotlight on the Samsung Q80B TVs. The first concerns the OTS process. This has a total of six speakers placed on the back of the screen (2.2.2 system) for a total power of 60 watts. Good news, the compatibility of Dolby Atmos tracks is fine.

For the rest, we find the Q-Symphony 2.0 feature. The latter, in the presence of a connected Samsung Q-Series 2020/2021/2022 soundbar, consists of utilizing the television speakers in addition to those on the soundbar to magnify the sound reproduction, its size and spaciousness. .

Until then, when a soundbar is connected to a TV, the speakers from the latter are then disconnected. With the Q-Symphony system signed by Samsung, they remain active and contribute greatly to the perceived sound enhancement with a configuration up to 11.1.4 depending on the connected soundbar. And the demonstration we have witnessed really demonstrates the effectiveness of the process and its relevance. Namely, if the soundbar is connected wirelessly to the television (via Wi-Fi), the control of Dolby Atmos audio tracks is of course also delivered wirelessly.

The Adaptive Sound + feature, an evolution of Adaptive Sound that is still able to adjust the TV’s sound settings in real time according to the displayed image, now takes into account the listening room. Otherwise, the AVA (Active Voice Amplifier) ​​function is still required, intended to automatically cover new noise in the TV environment. For example, a boiler or a vacuum cleaner, which will be covered by an increase in volume controlled directly by the TV. Do not panic, the TV lowers the volume, automatically always when the noise stops.

Samsung Q80B, Multiview function

Another improvement, the Samsung Q80B 4K Ultra HD QLED TVs offer simultaneous on-screen display of two contents with the MultiView function through as many windows: the first with the signal from a TV channel or a source connected to the TV ; the other with the screen on a smartphone by the user or coming from a gaming console or even the internet (see picture below). There are many viewing options, from classic PIP to viewing two adjacent windows.

Good point, the HDMI 2.1 standard is required with VRR, Freesync Premium Pro, ALLM, HFR 4K / 120 and eARC compatibility on the four inputs. And to activate the mirroring mode between a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and a Samsung Q80B TV, simply, thanks to the Tap View feature, tap the second one with the first one and you’re done.

Samsung Q80B, Amazon Alexa, Bixby, Google Assistant and new Tizen

In 2022, on the one hand, the Tizen interface will radically change to increasingly advanced ergonomics, to give content an honor on the other. Samsung is currently working with Internet access providers to develop IP TV applications so you can enjoy it directly from a Smart TV and eliminate the need for a TV decoder. Orange TV would thus be available with a Login / mdp such as. myCanal.

The Bixby Voice Assistant is still available, as is Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. And it’s easy to switch from one to the other via the menu. In the connection menu, we should mention the Wi-Fi 5 feature, Bluetooth 5.2 and AirPlay 2 compatibility plus many communication features (Google Duo for video calling for example) or the ability to work on these Microsoft documents via the cloud on the TV screen.

There are also 16/9, 21/9 or even 32/9 viewing modes for video game enthusiasts with PC connectivity and Game Motion Plus mode. As a reminder, the latter (adapted for video games, as the name suggests) is very interesting as it allows you to activate the motion compensation process of the TV with games while maintaining a fairly low input layer. Without forgetting the new remote control, still solar powered, but able, by 2022, to be recharged by RF (radio frequency). Thus, the zapper utilizes your box Wi-Fi to constantly recharge.

Of course, the SmartThings feature is still there. The group’s IoT platform (Internet of Things or Internet of Things) is compatible with Android and iOS and with hundreds of devices from other brands (Arlo-type surveillance cameras, Amazon Echo or Google Home-type smart speakers, Philips Hue-type connected light sources , connected lock …). Samsung Smart TVs are thus able to fit into the most modern interactive ecosystems with a great advantage, directly linked to their DNA, the ability to display a lot of information on their screen: the face of the person who just called front door, the contents of the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator, messages from the robotic vacuum cleaner or even from the washing machine when the cleaning or washing cycle is completed. The television thus becomes the preferred interface for accessing the features that Smart Home equipment offers.
