What is 8K?

A new era in picture perfection

QLED 8K TVs deliver a truly immersive viewing experience, with 4 times the resolution of 4K and 16 times that of Full HD. 8K gets its name from its horizontal resolution of nearly 8,000 pixels, which works out at over 33 million pixels in total, when multiplied by the 4,320 vertical pixels. This allows you to plunge into the detail of every scene, so you don’t miss a thing.

How good is the picture?

True 8K resolution means you experience picture perfection, with stunning depth, detail and over a billion shades of colour. You’ll feel like you’re seeing real life, rather than watching TV. Join your team on the pitch for that goal celebration; or lose yourself in The Upside Down when you watch Stranger Things – it’s the difference between just watching the action and feeling like you’re part of it.

What can I watch in 8K resolution?

Enjoy everything you watch in glorious 8K – even if it’s not filmed in 8K. Samsung QLED 8K TVs include intelligent upscaling technology, which can upgrade the quality of 4K and HD content, with stunning results. This artificial intelligence (A.I.) uses advanced machine learning to generate extra pixels and fill in the gaps. It analyses a database of millions of images to sharpen edges, reduce digital distortion and add extra detail. Discover details you didn’t know existed and relive moments in newfound clarity and depth. After all, just because it’s not 8K, doesn’t mean you can’t experience it in 8K.

Is bigger really better?

Everyone is buying bigger and bigger TVs, but their living rooms stay the same size. With the number of pixels offered by 8K, you’ve got the option to go really big. Our new QLED 8K TVs range from a large 65” to an enormous 98". Though you don’t have to worry about your TV dominating the room, thanks to Ambient Mode 2.0, which turns your TV into a digital canvas, allowing you to display artworks, useful information, your own photos or magically blend it into its surroundings*. Plus, no matter how close you sit to the screen, you won’t be able to spot individual pixels, thanks to the extremely high pixel density. Big has never been so flawlessly beautiful.

*Some features of Ambient Mode require a compatible Android or iOS phone and sufficient space around the TV to operate; it will have varying results on complex wall designs, patterns, and/or unusual colours.
