Samsung’s 8K TV model has an almost borderless design and the ability to upscale 8K images with good AI. 

Not competing in thickness with OLED models from LG or Sony, Samsung equips the Q950TS TV with an ultra-thin screen border, only 2.3 mm, making the display 99% of the front. From a distance, this TV model looks borderless. The advantage of the new design is that the viewer will focus more on the visual part. Samsung once said that it can make TVs with thinner bezels, but it will make it difficult to transport and install, especially large screen models, 65 inches or more. 

When viewed from the side, the Q950TS model does not look thick, even though it is 15 mm thick. The frame is perforated to dissipate heat and also create a highlight for the product. 

The back is designed to be minimalist, the compact base is slightly tilted back. The back side does not have any connection ports. Samsung only uses an ultra-thin optical cable to connect to the One Connect box – an external accessory that contains the TV’s connection ports. 

The smart remote has a metal housing that matches the design of the TV. Simplified control of buttons, supports voice control with both Vietnamese.

Q950TS uses Tizen operating system developed by Samsung, supports virtual assistant Bixby, Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant. The TV easily connects to Android, iOS smartphones and smart devices in the home via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. The TV interface can be divided into two parts to both view content and monitor information from the mobile screen.

The Q950TS uses HDR 10+ standard quantum dot technology, illuminated by a full-array LED system with 480 separate zones and local dimming to control dark areas. 

In terms of display quality, QLED 8K presents good images with high brightness, more than OLED TVs, especially white tones. The TV showed deep and uniform blacks in most of the frame. Thanks to the full aray LED system, the light is better controlled, there is no light leakage like on TVs using border LEDs in frames with high brightness difference between bright and dark areas. With dark scenes, objects appearing in the frame are also automatically brightened, but without affecting the black of the dark areas. As the viewer moves from the center of the screen to the sides, the color and contrast are almost unchanged. The TV has a wide viewing angle, equivalent to the existing OLED models on the market.

However, the Q950TS still has its downsides. Specifically, with images that only appear small dark areas, the dark areas will not retain the depth of black but turn slightly gray. In addition, too high a brightness will affect the colors in colorful images. To overcome, users can use the intelligent lighting and contrast adjustment feature according to the environment. The TV will automatically increase or decrease the light to get the best picture according to the surrounding environment. At this point, QLED has not yet surpassed OLED in controlling light, contrast as well as keeping details in dark areas in some scenes.

The strength of the product lies in the ability to process images. The lack of 8K content is well handled by Samsung thanks to AI technology and the new generation Quantum processor. The AI ​​technology on the Q950TS is a form of machine learning – the TV learns and improves the picture over time and the user’s viewing preferences. The more viewing time, the faster the processing speed and image quality will increase. Image sharpness and noise are improved to the maximum.

With the same content, the image on Samsung’s 8K TV is noticeably more detailed and clear than a regular 4K TV. However, users should choose image sources with HD quality or higher for the most effective upgrade.
