Samsung prices 2022 4K, 8K, Neo QLED TVs, pre-orders begin

Samsung has released its official pricing for its 2022 line-up of 4K and 8K Neo QLED TVs and pre-ordering for these new models is now available via Samsung’s website. The TVs include the 8K Neo QLED QN800B and QN900B, 4K Neo QLED models, an update to The Frame 4K TVs, and the somewhat surprising inclusion of Samsung’s first QD-OLED TV, which Samsung is simply calling “Samsung OLED (S95B).”

Editor’s note: Shortly after announcing that pre-order had begun on these TVs, Samsung reached out to Digital Trends to let us know that the prices provided for the Samsung OLED TV were incorrect. This article now reflects the new, lower prices.

Samsung OLED TV

2022 Samsung OLED TV S95B front view.

Let’s start with the surprise: Samsung’s first QD-OLED TV. Not that it was a surprise that Samsung made the S95B (its official model designation), but it was a surprise that the company decided to make the formal launch of this TV a mention buried among its other 2022 models in a press release about pre-orders.

Regardless, here’s what we know.

The Samsung OLED is a 4K resolution TV that uses the company’s LaserSlim design. It will be available in 55- and 65-inch sizes, just like Sony’s recently announced A95K QD-OLED TV. It’s powered by the company’s Neural Quantum Processor 4K, and Samsung says it features an OLED brightness booster and perceptional color mapping to deliver “brighter, more accurate highlights and the most realistic, lifelike colors.”

The smart TV functionality will use Samsung’s  Tizen OS, much like the other smart TVs in Samsung’s portfolio. It will have Samsung’s Object Tracking Sound, which makes for a more realistic sound experience, and Q-Symphony, which lets Samsung TVs and soundbars share the audio duties. The Samsung OLED TV will be Dolby Atmos-capable.

  • Samsung OLED TV (QN65S95BAFXZA), 65-inch: $3,000, pre-order available now, available mid-April
  • Samsung OLED TV (QN55S95BAFXZA), 55-inch: $2,200, pre-order available now, available mid-April

Samsung 8K Neo QLED TV

Samsung 2022 QN900B 8K Neo QLED TV.

Samsung’s 2022 8K Neo QLED TVs will be available in three models: The QN900B, QN850B, and QN800B. All models are equipped with the company’s Neural Quantum Processor 8K with AI, which not only supports native 8K content, but can also upscale other resolutions like 4K and 1080p Full HD to near-8K quality. Owners of Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 will be able to pair their phones to the new TVs and watch 8K recorded video in full resolution.

As it did with previous Neo QLED models, these TVs use Mini-LED backlights for better brightness and contrast. New for 2022 is 14-bit processing, and a supported 144Hz refresh rate when viewing 4K content (QN900B only). All models get an anti-reflective layer to reduce distractions.

Using stainless steel, the TVs are impressively thin: 16.7mm for the QN900B and 18.7mm for the (QN850B, QN800B).

The QN900B features a powerful 90W 6.2.4-channel sound system, but it also supports the first built-in wireless TV-to-soundbar connection that supports Dolby Atmos, when paired with a compatible Samsung soundbar.

Samsung 4K The Frame TV

For 2022, Samsung’s popular, art gallery-inspired The Frame TV gets a new anti-reflective matte finish. Samsung says the new surface “goes well beyond reducing glare and reflections to improve the viewing experience.” As on previous The Frame models, when the TV is off, it can showcase users’ favorite art. But with the new display’s light scattering surface irregularities, the company claims that it can create the appearance of texture in the art, “whether that be the look of real vellum or the experience of canvas.”

The matte finish screen will also be available on Samsung’s 2022 Serif and Sero lifestyle models, which it plans to release soon. The Frame continues to offer Samsung’s Art Store, which now makes content easier to find, with subscriber access to more than 1,400 pieces of art. And, as promised from CES 2022, you’ll also be able to browse, buy and display NFTs through the platform.

Rounding out the changes for 2022, The Frame gets an upgraded sound system with new top speakers for a more immersive audio experience, an included slim wall mount, and Samsung’s new SolarCell remote.

Samsung sneaks a QD-OLED TV into CES 2022

The TV business is a tricky one. The business of a tech journalist covering TVs? It's trickier still. Case in point: In the midst of Samsung's other CES releases, Samsung snuck a brand-new TV technology into CES 2022 right under my nose. I'm supposed to know about this stuff ahead of time.

So what is this new TV? What is QD-OLED? What is QD-Display? And how in the world did Samsung pull a fast one on me? The answer is part tech and part inside baseball -- but all of it is important.

Sony claims mini-LED superiority with 2022 8K and 4K TVs
Sony 2022 Bravia XR TV lineup.

For Sony's TV ambitions, 2022 is looking like a banner year. Not only has it become the first company to bring a QD-OLED TV to market (the Sony A95K), but it is also branching out into mini-LED backlighting for its non-OLED flagship models, the 8K resolution Z9K, and the X95K, a 4K model. And naturally, Sony believes its version of mini-LED is better than the competition, thanks to a new version of its XR Backlight Master Drive and improvements to its Cognitive Processor XR technology.
Better mini-LED?

Why is Sony so confident that its min-LED TVs are better than TCL's mini-LED models, Samsung's Neo QLED TV, and LG's mini-LED QNED models? Apparently, none of these competitors are applying sufficient algorithmic control over their backlights, according to Sony, which results in less-than-ideal picture quality.

Samsung looks for an ‘Age of Togetherness’ with new Frame, Neo QLED TVs
Samsung Micro LED 2022.

Samsung kicks off CES 2022 doing what Samsung does best -- taking its line of many televisions, already great in their own right, and kicking things up yet another notch. Smarter, brighter, better, easier to use -- all the things that make a TV more than a TV in an era in which we're spending more time in front of the TV than ever.

On the front side of things is a new home screen, "a testament to our vision for the future of TVs." Samsung is paring things down to three main hubs -- a Media Screen, a Gaming Hub, and Ambient Mode. They're mostly self-explanatory. If it's something you're going to watch (via Samsung's built-in apps, anyway), you'll get to it from the Media Screen. The Gaming Hub gets you into your cloud-based gaming services and consoles and works with existing third-party controllers and headsets. And the Ambient Mode makes it easier than ever to have something pleasant on the screen when you're not actively watching or playing something. That includes art, or photos, or even NFTs, because it's 2022 and it's all about non-fungible tokens, apparently.
