In 2021, the company expanded its range of models with the addition of a new line of 4K UltraHD Samsung Neo QLED TVs. This is a further development of QLED TVs. They are equipped with mini LED lighting and the new Neo Quantum processor. This tandem, according to Samsung, allows the TV to produce sharper and clearer images and enhances the detail of bright and dark scenes compared to previous generation TVs.
As the name suggests, Mini-LEDs are significantly smaller than traditional LEDs. For consumers, this reduction translates into higher contrast, faster response times and a slimmer form factor compared to Samsung’s 2021 lineup of conventional LED-backlit LCD TVs.
Samsung’s Neo QLED TVs are enhanced for gaming too. They have refresh rates up to 120Hz, compatible with Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X. They also work with AMD FreeSync to avoid screen tearing and shake on compatible AMD computers. Plus automatic gaming mode (ALLM) reduces output latency. How do the 2021 Samsung Neo QLED TVs differ from each other?
In the materials below, we will compare the 2021 Samsung Neo QLED TVs. There are 5 models in the line, and in order to understand which one to choose, you need to have at least a general idea of the differences between the different series of Samsung Neo Cooled 2021. Those wishing to buy Samsung Neo QLED will help the table below.
Samsung Neo QLED 2021 TVs differences
We do not include Samsung’s designer models The Frame, The Serif, The Sero, and Terrace in this comparison. We will review the Samsung TV series QN900A , QN800A, QN95A / QN94A, QN90A / QN91A / QN92A / QN93A, QN85A / QN87A. All 2021 Neo QLED TVs from Samsung have 100 percent color gamut. All support HLG and HDR10 + high dynamic range standards.
All Neo Cooled have Q-Symphony technology that synchronizes TV and soundbar speakers. All support SpaceFit Sound, a technology that adapts sound to your room, and AVA, an active voice amplifier. Samsung Neo QLED is based on Tizen 6.0 OS with voice assistants Alexa, Bixby and Google Assistant.
The Motion Xcelerator Turbo + option enhances the clarity of motion in all Samsung Neo Cooled models. It is the same for everyone to use the Solar Remote with a light-rechargeable battery. All other parameters and options have numerical differences. We will now reveal these differences in Neo QLED.
Panel resolution and type
The two older series in the Neo QLED lineup Samsung QN900A and QN800A have 8K resolution, i.e. 7680 × 4320 pixels. The remaining TVs are 4K Ultra HD. 3840 x 2160 pixels. All TVs under review have a pure 10-bit color depth. All series are based on the VA matrix , which, in comparison with IPS, provides a high contrast. In contrast, the QN85A series uses an ADS matrix , which is a subspecies of IPS. This is the main difference between the Neo QLED 8 series.
Neo QLED TVs support Quantum Matrix technology. With nearly 40 times the number of backlight LEDs, the highest precision control of Quantum Mini LEDs is required. Therefore, the NeoQLED line uses the new Samsung Neo Quantum 8K and Neo Quantum 4K processors. The finished result is a bright saturated picture.
The Samsung Neo QLED audio difference concerns OTS technology and sound power. OTS – Object Tracking Sound is Samsung’s proprietary audio technology. It delivers object-oriented sound that moves in sync with the action on the screen.
The accuracy of the implementation depends on the number of TV speakers. The QN900A series TVs use the OTS + Pro version. The QN800A, QN95A, QN90A series and their offshoots use OTS +. The QN85A uses just the OTS version.
In terms of connectivity, the 2021 Neo QLED TV is the same as the 2020 QLED TV. The differences between the Neo QLED 2021 series are in the use of either “invisible” connection through the One Connect module, or “visible” physical ports. Moreover, Invisible One Connection is supported in the QN900A and QN95A series, but it may appear in the QN800A series, depending on the region.
