Samsung TV 2023: The latest on the 4K and 8K Neo QLED, QLED and Crystal UHD TVs

2023 has just started for the electronics industry things kick off with the Consumer Electronics Show. Samsung were present showing their latest TVs for the coming year.

These include brand new 8K models as well as new entries in their Neo QLED, OLED and Micro LED TV ranges.

The announcement at CES broadly covered what to expect from Samsung in 2023, so we’ve picked out the highlights worth paying attention in this range guide. You’ll also find on this page models, sizes and features for the TVs that Samsung launched in 2021 and 2022 that are still available, as well as collated all the latest prices too.

If you’re after a new Samsung TV and want to know more about what’s available, you’ve come to the right place.

New Samsung TVs for 2023

Samsung has always been a big believer in offering a wide portfolio of TVs for any customer, and the 2023 range offers their most bumper range of options yet.

The onus for its 2023 TVs appears to be on “enhanced connectivity and personalized consumer experiences” in the aim to simplify consumers everyday lives with “multi-device integration” through Samsung’s smart platform SmartThings. Expect to see a big push in terms of home interconnectivity and Samsung TVs being at the centre of the smart experience with Matter and HCA support arriving in 2023.

New 8K and 4K models

Samsung new 2023 8K models

Really, we’re here for the new TVs and there’s a suite of Neo QLED 4K and 8K models that will hit the market later this year.

A new feature is the algorithm that’s powering Samsung’s new Auto HDR Remastering. It makes use of AI deep learning technology to “analyse and apply real-time HDR effects on SDR content on a scene-by-scene basis”, transforming SDR content to create a brighter, more immersive performance.

Expanding Micro LED and QD-OLED models

Samsung New Screens MicroLED

Although Samsung insists on calling its QD-OLED models OLED for marketing reasons, we’re sticking with QD-OLED as they are quite different to traditional OLED screens. You can read our explainer for more on those differences.

Regardless, Samsung is beefing up their QD-OLED line-up with a new 77-inch model that’s been rumoured for the last several months. The 77-inch model is said to be able to hit 2000 nits of brightness in the right conditions, though expect that to be less so with everyday viewing (above 1000 nits).

The QD-OLED line-up is reportedly made up of a more affordable S90C series and a premium S95C (which includes the 77-inch set). Other features Samsung mentioned for their OLEDs include 144Hz refresh rate, along with certification for AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro for smoother, swifter PC gaming.

The Micro LED series stretches from 50- to 140-inches, though this screen is not bound by size or shape as it is modular, so it can be made as big or as small as your set-up requires. No mention of price for either the Micro LED or QD-OLED TVs, but we’ll find out closer to launch at around spring time.

Upgraded Gaming Hub

As part of its refreshed Tizen interface, Samsung introduced its Gaming Hub and it is taking the idea a few steps further with a few upgrades planned for 2023.

Those upgrades include MiniMap Sharing that enables players to see a mini map of what they’re playing at-a-glance, while the Virtual Aim Point is designed for first-person shooters to give players a more obvious crosshair for the ‘perfect shot’. Sounds like cheating to us…

Those are the main highlights from Samsung’s CES show. We’ll be adding 2023 product models and specs as and when we get them. For now, you can look below at the Samsung TVs still on sale from 2022 and 2021, as well as links to reviews for more detail on them.

Samsung TV 8K Neo QLED 2022

The Samsung QE75QN900B 8K TV
Samsung QN900B 8K Mini LED


Samsung’s flagship 8K features a range of improvements on what came before it, the Shape Adaptive Light technology proving especially potent in creating a more three-dimensional image.

As per usual it’s capable of a staggeringly bright 8K image with HDR content, the Infinity screen is another elegantly gorgeous design and the OTS+ sound system does a fine job of creating a big soundstage with accurately placed effects on screen. There are still issues with backlighting, despite the Mini LED panel and it does need good quality sources to shine, but this is one of the most high-performing LCD TVs available. It’s a great showcase for what LCD technology can do.

Samsung QN800B Rushmore


The step-down 8K model from Samsung is cheaper and isn’t as bright with regards its HDR performance (a max of 3000 nits compared to the QN900B’s 4000).

Nevertheless, it’s still produces a corker of an image with native 8K content, offers a wide range of features suitable for gaming at ultra-high def resolution and the design is another elegantly slim effort that’s easy to hang on the wall. Like the QN900B it does suffer from backlighting issues and there are limits to its upscaling when dealing with lower resolution content.

read our review of the Samsung QN800B

Samsung QN700B 8K


The entry-level 8K model in Samsung’s 2022 line-up sees brightness drop to around 2000 nits maximum but it is the cheapest 8K TV that Samsung offers.

It boasts a similar design as the models above but it doesn’t the same processor, packing the Neo Quantum Processor 8K Lite version. It appears that the set’s upscaling, contrast performance is not as strong as either the QN800B and QN900B, and viewing angles aren’t as wide either.

Samsung TV 4K Neo QLED 2022

Samsung QE65QN95B Neo QLED Mini LED


Sitting at the top of Samsung’s 4K tree is the QN95B. It shares some features with the 8K models in that it supports the OneConnect feature whereby all the connections, power and processing is stored in a box that clips on to the back of the TV’s stand.

Like all the Neo QLED TVs, the QN95B supports Mini LED backlight, the Infinity One slim screen design, Dolby Atmos audio and 2000 nits of peak brightness for HDR content. We found this TV delivered absolutely spectacular HDR images, taking LCD tech to another level for film fans and gamers. There are issues, notably the smart system isn’t as helpful as intended, there are still traces of blooming at wider angles and there’s no Dolby Vision support either.

Samsung QE55QN90B Suicide Squad Harley


The QN90B is the step down model from the QN95B and as is per usual from Samsung, there are a few performance and design downgrades to note.

The Mini LED panel doesn’t feature the same number of local dimming zones, so contrast and black levels are slightly affected. It also doesn’t come with the OneConnect box, though that doesn’t appear to have affected the slimness of the TV (which is slimmer than most OLEDs).

Like the QN95B, the QN90B puts in a vibrant HDR performance, though at times there’s so much brightness that it can be overwhelming in terms of picture accuracy. Gaming is excellent with class-leading levels of latency and upscaling of lower quality sources is good. The Tizen smart interface is an area of improvement, especially in terms of responsivenss.

Samsung QE55QN85B Tenet


Another Neo QLED and, you guessed it, the performance is not as strong as the models above it, but the caveat is that this model is available at a more affordable price.

The main differences lie in the design: the stand is different (a central, smaller pedestal), which should make it easier to position on furniture with smaller footprint. It’s not available in as many sizes (there is no 50- or 43-inch model), the viewing angle technology is not as wide, and it only has OTS sound instead of OTS+ (which adds side-firing speakers).

This is another TV we tested and we praised its elegant looks, performance with current-gen game consoles as well as its bright, vibrant and mostly detailed pictures. Where it falls down is in its ability to discern detail in black tones, making them look rather formless and the same.

Samsung TV QLED 2022

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Samsung-Q80B-Neo-QLED-1024x647.jpg


The Q80B marks the divide between Samsung’s Neo QLED and QLED TVs, the QN80B falling into the clutches of the latter.

That means there’s no support for Mini LED backlight technology but it does still boast a Direct Full Array screen, so while it may not have as many dimming zones, it has enough to be able to offer reasonable control over black levels and brightness for its price. Brightness is quoted at 1500 nits.

The design is different, mostly in terms of the pedestal it stands on. The processor at its heart is the step down Quantum Processor, so we wouldn’t expect upscaling to be as comprehensive. This TV does have Samsung’s ‘basic’ Smart Calibration feature, though, which pretty much sets up the picture in accordance with the environment it’s in. Game-wise this boasts a similar set of features, with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro among the options for gamers.

Samsung Q75B QLED


The Q75B has a different stand and there’s no mention of peak brightness, which is confirmation in itself that it’s not as bright as the Q80B.

There is 4K/120 frame rate support for gaming on this TV, interestingly, as well as FreeSync Premium Pro for PC gaming. There’s no built-in Dolby Atmos support for this screen, and the TV ships with the OTS Lite sound system. This alludes to the TV using a combination of physical and virtual speakers to track audio across the screen.

There’s no Direct Local Dimming present, using Samsung’s Dual LED technology to tackle brightness and contrast. In short, the Q75B won’t be as exact when it comes to displaying black levels or wide-ranging contrast.

Samsung Q70B QLED


Dropping down to the Q70B and we have a screen that’s available in more sizes than the Q70B, so if you truly wanted to go big, then there’s the option to go for the 85-inch set.

Performance and features appear to be line with the Q75B, the only thing that we note is some missing features such as the Smart Calibration and the Mini Map Zoom feature that’s been integrated into the Gaming Hub within the Tizen interface.

Samsung Q60B QLED


We come to the entry-level QLED model for 2022 and the most obvious differences is that this design uses feet instead of a central pedestal (so consider a wide piece of furniture depending on the size). Also, it’s available in a number of different sizes, ranging from 43- to 85-inches.

The processor is downgraded to the Quantum Processor Lite (so set expectations according with regards to its picture performance). There’s no viewing angle technology (sitting head on likely provides the best performance) and for gaming there appears to be no VRR support of any kind.

Samsung Crystal UHD 4K TV 2022

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Samsung-BU8500-Crystal-UHD-1024x655.jpg


The BU8500 is leader of the Crystal UHD pack but expect this set to focus more on value over outright performance compared to the QLED models above it.

Sizes range from 43- to 75-inches, there are just three HDMI ports and the refresh rate is limited to 50Hz. With no local dimming provided, this set uses digital processing to create its sense of contrast and black levels, especially with the Contrast Enhancer feature that darkens black levels and increases the luminance of brighter areas.

Don’t expect this to be big on gaming features, with just ALLM and HGiG HDR support present.

Samsung BU8510


The difference between the BU8510 is both small and significant. It lacks a few picture features (the LED Clear Motion is missing but in our experience that’s no big loss), like all of Samsung’s TVs there’s support for the trio of voice assistants in Alexa, Google Assistant and Samung’s own Bixby.

The significant differences are in the wider stand (which also comes in white), and the number of sizes is fewer; only 43- and 50-inch sizes are available.

Samsung UE65BU8000 Thor Love and Thunder


Last on the block is the BU8000, the cheapest model in the current Crystal UHD line-up. It features the AirSlim design that all the Crystal UHD models feature, which makes it suitable for wall-mounting.

The design differs it that it has feet towards the edges of the screen (again, you’ll want to consider the width of the furniture this screen is placed on), and it comes with just the three HDMI inputs, one of which is placed facing out from the rear, not too helpful when it comes to wall-mounting.

We have reviewed this TV and felt it delivered good value for a 65-inch screen but that’s mitigated by a lacklustre image, sluggish smart TV interface and the fact that Samsung’s 2021 Crystal UHD sets are still available, and in some cases offer better performance.

Samsung Lifestyle TV 2022

Samsung The Frame TV

Frame 2022

Samsung continues with its lifestyle-focused Frame TV series. It functions like any other TV when switched on, but can show pieces of framed art via Art Mode. It integrates the same QLED display tech seen in the standard QLED range, so viewers will be getting a similar level of picture quality.

Samsung The Serif main

Serif 2022

The Serif TV is more for design purists, although it does have a 4K QLED screen. It’s won a few awards including one at the International Forum (iF) Design Awards. This TV offered a colourful picture performance, solid smarts and distinctive design that makes it really good option for interior designs who want something unique in their home. Its HDR performance is limited, and for most people The Serif won’t be the most practical TV to have around.

  • QE43LS05T

One for the cool kid crowd, the Sero is a new lifestyle QLED TV with a unique feature. It can rotate between horizontal and vertical orientations like a smartphone can, so viewers can enjoy a whole range of content that are vertical in scope, as well as catering for normal, landscape content. It’s only available in 43-inch size, but comes with 60W of sound for a 4.1 channel presentation.

Samsung The Terrace

The Terrace

  • QE55LST7TA
  • QE65LST7TA
  • QE75LST7TA

The Terrace is a TV built for the outdoors. It has IP55 water and dust resistance, high HDR peak brightness of 2000 nits to nullify some of that brightness from sunlight. There’s wide viewing angle technology, useful if there’s more than one person watching and the frame is made out of metal, adding to the set’s durability.

Other include the Tizen-based Eden smarts and HDR10+ support. There’s also a HDBaseT receiver for long distance audio, video and power transmission through a single cable. Fancy a soundbar, too? Samsung has made the Terrace soundbar, which comes with water resistant features.

Samsung TV 8K 2021

Samsung QE65QN900A Doctor Sleep soundbar


The QN900A improved on the Q950TS with more detailed highlights and pitch black levels for increased contrast and 8K sharpness.

The Infinity Screen provides an even more edge-to-edge viewing experience with the built-in lean of the Q950TS gone. With a slim profile (15.4mm), the QN900A is suited for wall-mounting, and the One Connect box that incorporates the connections and funnels power, video and audio can be affixed to the back of the stand to keep it concealed.

Upscaling sub-4K content to 8K has been improved, while peak HDR brightness is very high, briefly reaching 4000 nits (less so for the 65-inch model). Tucked into its slim frame is Object Tracking Sound PRO sound system with 10 built-in speakers to track sound across the screen.

We’ve reviewed the model and said it’s arguably the “most cutting edge TV we’ve ever seen”. It’s still available but quantity appears to be low.

Samsung TV 4K 2021

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Samsung-uk-neo-qled-qn90a-1024x683.jpg


the QN90A is a variation of the flagship QN95A. What’s the difference? Well, fewer sizes (no 75- or 85-inch model), the 50-inch model – like the QN94C – gets OTS Lite sound system, and the viewing angle technology is the Wide not Ultra version – expect colours and contrast to be reduced off-axis compared to the QN95A.

This is the last of the 2021 Neo QLED branded TVs. The QN85A’s picture and sound features see a slight downgrade in specs. HDR performance is said to be less bright, while the audio system is arrayed in a more standard OTS configuration (we’re looking to confirm this).

The design of the stand differs from than the premium Neo QLED models and can accommodate a soundbar (preferably a Samsung one). It remains available in a few sizes, but like all 2021 models, availability is low and in some cases either is a second hand or refurbished model.

Samsung TV Crystal UHD

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Samsung-crystal-uhd-au9000-ue50au9000-1024x683.jpg


Our 2021 ‘Best affordable TV’ winner is still available in a number of sizes and at cheaper prices than before. Value and performance are the main aims here with its Crystal Processor ramping up colour reproduction over 4K UHD TVs, and there’s gaming support with its Motion Xcelerator Turbo feature and the Super UltraWide GameView and Game Bar that enables switching between 21:9 and 32:9 screen ratios.

Otherwise there are the ‘Lite’ versions of the Q-Symphony and OTS audio technologies, so this TV will rely on some digital wizardry for audio.

We’ve reviewed this model and said that it was “excellent with native 4K content, upscales 1080p stuff confidently, and has one of the best smart TV interfaces around.”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Samsung-au8000-ue75au8000kxxu-1024x683.jpg


This entry-level Crystal UHD TV is available in more sizes (70-, 85-inches) than the AU9000 and covers similar ground in terms audio-visual features, but loses the Turbo version of the Motion Xcelerator and Super UltraWide GameView and Game Bar, so it’s a less suitable option if you’re after a new affordable gaming TV.

The AU7100 is the entry-level LED LCD TV for 2021. Aside from the Tizen-based Eden smart interface, there aren’t many smart features (no built-in voice assistants, no Multi View); the visual features are rather standard (Samsung’s PurColor technology) and the audio features are the ‘Lite’ version in most cases. If you’re looking for a cheap, no-frills telly; this would be the one.
