It’s official, there will be Samsung OLED TVs in the Korean manufacturer’s 2022 catalog! The Samsung S95B OLED TVs will be available in 55” and 65” from May. On the menu: QD-OLED panel, ultra-thin LaserSlim design, Quantum Neural 4K processor, new Tizen 6 platform and Dolby Atmos.
You may have forgotten, but Samsung has already sold OLED TVs. It was in 2012 and 2013, at the same time as LG. However, Samsung quickly abandoned this technology, in particular due to high production costs and issues with its OLED panels.
Ten years later, Samsung is returning to the OLED TV market with a very promising new range: the Samsung S95B series. It is positioned at the top of the Samsung 2022 4K TV lineup. It will sit alongside the recently unveiled Samsung Neo QLED Q95B series.
So far, the Korean giant has leaked very little information about this new Samsung OLED S95B TV range. These Samsung 2022 OLED TVs feature an ultra-slim design (LaserSlim) and benefit from the manufacturer’s cutting-edge technologies. We therefore find a Quantum Neural 4K processor and the new Tizen 6 platform. For audio, the Object Tracking Sound and Q-Symphony features are included, with support for Dolby Atmos. Enough to enjoy a very immersive sound experience.
Finally, the connectors include four HDMI 2.1 ports compatible with 4K 120Hz. The VRR (FreeSync) and ALLM gaming functions, as well as the game toolbar are expected to be included.
Samsung does not reveal any information about the OLED display used. But the mention of Quantum HDR OLED technology on a famous American online sales site leaves no doubt. The Samsung OLED S95B range therefore features a QD-OLED (QD-Display) panel, also used by Sony in the Sony A95K range. The manufacturer specifies that it benefits from an OLED brightness booster and perceptual color mapping. The goal is to display very bright images as well as ever more realistic colors.
With this range of Samsung S95B OLED TVs, is the Korean giant able to compete with the latest generation OLED TVs such as the LG OLED C2 and the LG OLED G2 TV ranges? Can it also stand up to Panasonic OLED TVs, Sony OLED TVs or even Philips OLED TVs? To be continued…
The Samsung OLED S95B range of televisions will be available in 55” (139cm) and 65” (164cm) from May 2022. No price has yet been announced for the French market.
