Samsung’s QLED family continues to grow unstoppable in 2021 with another of its outstanding models, the Samsung Q80A. It is an excellent option to enjoy the remarkable quality of its 2021 panels but without reaching the expense of other models such as the Samsung QE65QN95A . This model has the main novelties and gives us 75 ″ images in 4K resolution. Its Direct Full Array rear lighting system shows scenes that bet on detail and that overflows its capabilities with HDR + and HDR1.500 certification.

Design and materials

Open your senses to new audiovisual experiences with its narrow bezel design. Boost your moments in front of the sofa with a greater immersion in the contents. The thickness of these bezels is 0.9cm, being one of the most compact frame models on the market. Thus, the Samsung QE75Q80A provides a screen area of ​​96% of the entire front area. Its measurements are 1670.6 x 1036.2 x 316.8 mm and it has a weight of 40.3 kg (data with base). Therefore, we will have to make a place in the living room for this large 75 ″ QLED TV.

Compact design and suitable for wall mounting

Its base mixes plastic and metal to offer good stability, it is not very large and leaves enough space for the placement of a sound bar. Additionally, this Samsung 75Q80A can be wall mounted with a 400 × 400mm VESA mount. Its back uses plastic with a simple texture to give a neat look. The connections are placed on the left side, with easy access if the Samsung QE75Q80AATXXC is placed on a VESA mount.

We verify that it does not have the Samsung One Connect connection box seen in other models such as the Samsung 50LS03A . However, the thickness of the TV is still very good at 5.4 cm . That also facilitates the integration of the television in the living room furniture and much more if we decide to place it on the wall. It includes a remote control with a microphone and that also allows its recharging using solar energy, a point to avoid the unfortunate use of batteries.

Image quality

The first thing we have to highlight in the Samsung Q80A is its 75-inch VA QLED panel. Direct Full Array technology brings out all the charms of the TV with an intelligent backlight system. The QLED 4K processor with Artificial Intelligence processes the received images and manages the lighting in a realistic way. This achieves a high level of fidelity to the original content, with dazzling light areas and deep blacks.

Its performance is also evident with its support for HDR10 + and Quantum HDR 1500 content. It has a high level of brightness to show much more realistic scenes and an outstanding level of detail. Therefore, we check how the images are faithful when different light sources and a dark area are mixed. Added to all this is its 100% color volume with Samsung’s Quantum dot technology. Covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space to provide a faithful experience with prominent colors.

HDR10 + support for vibrant and exciting images

Therefore, with the Samsung QE75Q80A we immerse ourselves in a vivid and detailed experience. An experience to share with the rest of the members of the household with its wide viewing angles. The Wide Viewing Angle maintains the intensity of the colors no matter where we are sitting on the sofa. It also adapts to the different lighting conditions in the room thanks to the built-in sensors, automatically adjusting the brightness and contrast of the television.

Cinema and much more

Samsung strives to satisfy cinema consumers, but also home gamers . Forget the usual 24-inch monitor in the bedroom and discover the characteristics of a QLED TV like this Samsung 75Q80A. Open your eyes to enjoy the fluidity of Motion Xcelerator Turbo + technology. Play frantic games without blur thanks to the improvement of frames  and the optimization of scenes up to 120Hz in 4K resolution.

Another of the most interesting features of this Samsung QE75Q80AATXXC lies in its AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support. One of the most sought after performance improvements by gamers by offering an image free of visual errors such as breaks or flickers. Additionally, it improves high dynamic range results and provides low latency.

Connectivity and sound of the Samsung 75Q80A

Complete section of connections that does not lack anything. It has a total of 4 HDMI 2.0 ports, with corresponding ARC and eARC compatibility for sound bars. It also incorporates 2 USB 2.0 ports for DTT content recording and multimedia playback. We complete with the 5GHz WiFi connection, DLNA and Bluetooth 5.2. In addition, we have the most common voice assistants such as Alexa, Bixby and Google Assistant.

Sound also plays an important role in a rich audiovisual experience. Therefore, Samsung QE75Q80A has a 2.2.2 ch configuration and a total power of 60W. The bass is deeper than in other televisions thanks to its specific drivers. In addition, we can enjoy a sound optimized to space with its SpaceFit Sound technology. But it also identifies surrounding noises and adjusts the volume automatically so you don’t miss a single line of dialogue.
