QD-Oled and Neo Qled: our first impressions of Samsung TVs to come, the difference between Qled and OLED | Samsung ch_fr


The biggest difference between the Qled and the OLED lies in small particles called quantum dots (quantum points). These are lit by a backlight allowing them to diffuse their colors. QLED already holds the title of world color champion. The television thus offers better contrasts and an ultra -deep black. In addition, the colors have practically all their precision and their intensity regardless of the angle of view. What is more, in case of high light, colors can also appear more precisely thanks to this change. This means that it is possible to watch a film in the colors imagined really by the producer. Not exactly the same, but almost. QLED can therefore represent the whole spectrum of colors and crest luminance, that is to say 100% of the volume of colors.

QD-Oled and Neo Qled: our first impressions of Samsung TVs to come

As announced during these 2023, Samsung continues to develop its Neo Qled range while expanding its offer of OLED TV. We were able to take a look at some of these references during an event organized by Samsung. The brand’s brand new smartphones and connected smartphones and connected objects gathered Galaxy Book 3 Ultra, But also a pair of televisions that will soon arrive on the market.

The Samsung showroom allowed us to approach the next brand’s next flagships in terms of televisions. We were able to see the new QD-Oled TV, namely the Samsung S95C, as well as two Neo Qled references with an 85-inch 8K TV (the QNA900C), and a more modest 4K TV with the Qn90c also equipped with A mini-LED backlight.

S95C: Samsung refines his OLED recipe

Let’s start with the highlight of the show, which is none other than the QD-Oled second generation TV from the Korean manufacturer. This year, Samsung widens its range with a total of six references against only two last year. This is first explained for the addition of a new diagonal of 77 inch to those existing (55 and 65 inches) as well as a division of the offer through two ranges with the OLED S90C and L ‘OLED S95C.

To summarize, the OLED S90C takes up the elements of the last year model (the S95B) and remains delivered without ONECONNECT box. The S95C will be well equipped with the famous box which allows you to have only one cable to be connected to the TV and therefore to enjoy a slightly finer television and an installation could not be cleaned and easy.

Despite everything, one thing seems obvious after having observed the S95C in preview: Samsung seems to have worked on different points to make S95C the high-end model par excellence and make it even more efficient. However, it is necessary to take this assertion with tweezers, for the simple reason that we could not see the S90C next to the S95C, but the image of the latter risks making jealous for at least two reasons. First of all, next to the NEO Qled televisions equipped with a minled backlight, the S95C seemed just as bright as these.

Of course, it depends a lot on the chosen image mode and the adjustments that were made upstream, but it is clear that the elevation of the brightness is on the program. If a high luminosity is only useful in some cases, for example to watch TV in the middle of the day in a well exposed room or bring out a maximum of details in the high lights in HDR, it seems clear that the S95C will be a very Good student on these two points. This is to be added to another element, very impactful to view content in most situations: reflections management.

The reflectance of the OLED slabs has always been, until recent improvements, a large weak point for this display technology on TV. For once, the S95C was placed back to the bay window in the Samsung showroom, which does not help to get a precise idea of ​​the capacities of the slab of the slab. However, it seems to be a notch above what Samsung produced last year with its S95B; We look forward to checking this with our usual test conditions in a room bathed in light with a window that we generally find well placed when it comes to testing OLED televisions (see for example our LG A2 tests or Sony Bravia XR-55A83K).

In the end, our first impression on the S95C is excellent. Samsung’s QD-Oled TV wins an Oneconnect case, benefits from a fine and premium design and above all displays an image without common measurement with the best LCD televisions on the market: the image benefits from a large wealth in colors, of explosive brightness and above all of an unequaled depth with intense blacks. If our impressions about the anti-reflection filter is confirmed, then the S95C would be without too much trouble as one of the best televisions of the year. We will talk about it in a few months when we could have tested it, and obviously compare it to the competition with the LG Display Meta slabs. In the meantime, Samsung has unveiled the price and availability of its OLED FLAGSHIP, it will take € 2,499 for the 55 inch, € 3,299 model for that of 65 inches, and no less than € 4,799 for the most generous diagonal 77 inch.

NEO QLED TV: a generation without blooming ?

Difficult to answer the question of blooming by having seen the televisions in action for a few tens of minutes at most, nevertheless Samsung continues to push its minled backlight in its entrenchments by increasing the number of diodes and, therefore, the number of zones local gradation. The fact remains that the manufacturer also continues not to communicate the information related to backlighting, we therefore do not know the precise number of diodes or local Dimming areas.

The two screens that we have seen at work represent what Samsung has the best to offer in terms of Neo Qled. First with the Qn900c and its 8K definition which is more suitable in order to make the most of an 85 -inch diagonal as is the case here, as well as with the Qn90C which is positioned as a minled 4K TV top of the line. Apart from the promised developments in image processing and interface, it is above all the multiplication of local gradation zones which seems to be on the agenda on these premium televisions. The objective ? To eliminate as best as possible the effects of blooming that is generally encountered when a light object is diffused on a dark background.

Always more complete from year to year, the Tizen interface still wins new features, especially in terms of gaming as we can see here with the Qn90c © Matthieu Legouge for Clubicic

Last year, we could see that the blooming was not yet completely eradicated on the model that Samsung had sent us, namely the Neo Qled Qn90b. We still perceived “A slight blooming of objects that appear on uniform funds […] on the verge of perceptible in most cases”. Naturally, we expect better this year, but apart from the very detailed image and the rich colorimetry of these models, we have not been able to detect if Samsung was really able to eradicate this phenomenon with its new Neo Qled range. Again, only our test protocols will clarify our judgment when we can get their hands on one of these models. To be continued !

1: Either you have done this article with an AI, or you are bad in French, is incredible the number of faults in this article with badly placed words or downright not the right words.
2: Fortunately we know the context, namely that it is Samsung (High Tech domain) and not Aubade or Shein, with S95B S95C models, we would have said that we were exposed to good supporters Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi

Performed … badly placed … models … either … or … aubade … for a lesson donor !

It should be noted that the Samsung screens and all their products are not compatible Dolby Vision which is the professional standard used in the cinema.
Because Samsung does not want to pay the license, they prefer HD10+ (a standard they have tried to put forward in vain) that almost no one uses.
It would be nice to specify it in the articles.

Possessor of a 65S95B, I can only advise you on this high -end model, which is clearly sloppy. Already there is the dealership of Dolby Vision as well as DTS, then come:
Netflix which broadcasts in HDR and not HDR10+, the result is often too dark films even with the brightness to the maximum, it is much better in SDR … This is the reason for the importance of Dolby Vision
In the evening by turning on the TV, you take a beautiful flash of light in the face (hello eyes !), You have to wait a 10 seconds for the brightness to lower
The WiFi network which puts several 10 seconds to connect to the start with a 5 -meter box in the same room and 50 cm from the ground
Tizen 6.5 is a nest with advertisements/elements suggestions that cannot be removed, the bone sometimes freezes 4 to 5 seconds and lack of responsiveness
The movement compensation system sold as incredible, LAG during the 1st second during certain scenes/plans changes
The absence of figures on the remote control and access to these virtual figures on the TV is not reactive, the unimportant zapping system when you want to quickly jump a whole series of channels. By dint of wanting to purify everything by removing touches, it becomes less practical
The noise of the keys on the remote control is quite noisy/cheap, it is to wonder if the keys will not one day take off
I had bought this television for its brightness greater than the competition, it fell in the course of forced automatic updates (however deactivated), I really have it bad
To manually change from source, I am not telling you the obstacle course with a large number of submenus
To avoid marking, there is a pixel shift that can be seen as the nose in the middle of the figure with a much thicker black band on some sides and when a pixel offset is carried out, it is seen ..
Voice research is sometimes in cabbage after a number of consecutive uses ..
As a reminder, the 65S95B was launched around € 3,500 … which nevertheless looked top on paper and according to tests

Thank you, customer feedback is precious, I think I will stay at Panasonic when my 2008 plasma make the soul “one day”.

JA confirms the statements of 06jerem. After buying a US55JS9000 to DisPort Box .Fall down after 5 years and not repairable because more parts provided. 2000th in C… I therefore buy a 65S95B and I must say that I bitterly regret this purchase. The television does not respond very badly at the first minute. offers a 10 -minute stop to say Improve Improve, but nothing different .and the worst that he offers it every time. So each time you have to cancel otherwise it does it automatically .Vocal assistant this stew. etc., etc . So finished Samsung for my part .

Why do a full article on Samsung and not others ?
They are on the grounds on the OLED, they did not want to believe it and as said @Manumike their slab are not compatible with Dolby Vision.
Samsung like LG (and the Chinese too) invade the market of models +/- Good, there is only that on the shelves … But not Sony or Panasonic which have very interesting models (with LG tiles!), especially the Pana TVs which are compatible with all Dolby Vision, HDR10+, Dobly and DTS standards for sound … but not accessible for all budgets.

AI that responds to an AI (the same visibly given the faults)

Not to defend, but to confirm the impression of dedeeded, the article is painful to read, and this from the first sentence (pursuing is a transitive verb, so we continue a development, and not we continue to develop !)).
The rest is of the same ilk, a lot of heaviness in style, which makes unpleasant reading.
So no need to mock DEDEEDED for his faults, because in the end, it was not he who wrote the article.

Ba me I have a 50 -inch neo qled 2021 bought on the Samsung Shop for 2 years and I must admit that it works rather very well no worries as reported on the different messages WiFi Bluetooth Top Image Surb Image Easy Easy Mode Perfect Perfect Mode Good no dolby vision but given the poverty of the content in any case for me I watch a lot of films and series in HDR and it farts it stings the eyes and lights the whole living room the Windows 10 PC connected in HDMI in HDR also in native resolution 3840×2160 60 htz which also uses me to watch films because where I agree is that no DTS and that for a license of ten euros per screen is abused on the part of Samsung they should also leave the user the possibility of being able to buy it as for Dolby all of this is just a story of codecs.Anyway, me who comes from a Sony Bravia with recurrent breakdowns and a lot of problems a lamentable after -sales service I am for the moment very happy with my purchase hoping that … like whatever


Qled is Samsung’s new TV technology. Thanks to the quantum dot perfected technology, the QLED TV produces an image that immerses us in a visual universe of an unequaled richness: pure, stable and precise bright colors, details of great wealth thanks to a higher level of contrast and a crest luminance up to 4000 nits.

It is easy to present its characteristics. Take the example of a blockbuster. A dark object is in an even darker corner. Difficult to recognize it on a classic TV. Thanks to the HDR capacity and the rate of contrast that we obtain today and which is up to twice as high as for the previous generation, we can clearly see in this thriller where the danger is.

The biggest difference between the Qled and the OLED lies in small particles called quantum dots (quantum points). These are lit by a backlight allowing them to diffuse their colors. QLED already holds the title of world color champion. The television thus offers better contrasts and an ultra -deep black. In addition, the colors have practically all their precision and their intensity regardless of the angle of view. What is more, in case of high light, colors can also appear more precisely thanks to this change. This means that it is possible to watch a film in the colors imagined really by the producer. Not exactly the same, but almost. QLED can therefore represent the whole spectrum of colors and crest luminance, that is to say 100% of the volume of colors.

What is the oled?

OLED means organic light emitting diode. This TV technology therefore refers to a type of electroluminescent diode. Its particularity is that it is responsible for the light intensity and the representation of the images of the TV in which it is integrated. No additional light is necessary.
The image quality of televisions equipped with this lighting technique is excellent because the OLED light source and the imagery is one. It is thus possible to obtain a particularly deep black. The colors are powerful and vibrant. The excellent values ​​of black and contrast of OLED screens are the main characteristics of this technology.

The points of QLED and OLED

Like Qled televisions, OLED televisions can represent 4K resolution, and even 8K resolution for QLED televisions, and are therefore absolutely in tune with the times. The current smart TV generation has another advantage. The screens can be fixed very close to the wall and require only one cable to be connected to any additional device such as, for example, a UHD-Blu-ray player or a game console. No more cable tangles !

The differences between inorganic Qled and organic OLED

The letters q and o, yet so similar to the eye and in the ear, are no less at the origin of notable differences. As always, light and price, although in a lower proportion, make the difference. Regarding OLED technology, after about 20,000 hours of operation, there is an organic degradation of colors and brightness. It’s much shorter than for Samsung Qled technology. QLED technology works with inorganic particles and has a longer lifespan than OLED organic technology. This means that colors and brightness remain almost unchanged even after several years. Regarding OLED screens, the light intensity decreases very quickly for certain colors.

The loss of brightness often very fast often weighs very heavy in the scale. Because the image is not only blurred, mate and dull, it also loses its visibility. In short, the image becomes always darker.

But the big difference between the two systems really lies in this point: OLED, due to its nonexistent backlight, is obviously rather used in dark projection rooms and in well -defined corners in electronics stores. But a normal living room has windows and we love sunlight. So he is sometimes clear, sometimes dark. And this is where the Qled scores points. Despite a bright environment, it is possible to have contrasting images of exceptional clarity thanks to the high crest luminance.

Image persistence effects ? See for yourself !

The reduction in brightness can cause these famous image remanery effects on OLED TV. With the following video, you can check if your TV produces image remanence effects and make sure to enjoy a better image.
