Samsung South African's product manager for visual displays, Nivash Ramsern, talks to Stuff's editor Craig Wilson about the company's latest 8K QLED TVs.
Samsung’s smart TVs have been awfully smart for an awfully long time, but now it’s time for something new and different: Samsung’s 8K QLED TVs.
The Korean company unveiled its 8K QLED TVs at a media event in Johannesburg today, and as expected, they're not going to come cheap.
If you haven’t jumped onto the 4K bandwagon, your time might be running short. LG and Sony have taken some time at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to show off their spiffiest 8K TV sets. But, in contrast to the fact that that many pixels on a smaller screen is kinda pointless, all of these super-high res TVs are also pretty super-sized. As will be, we expect, their prices w...[Read More]
OLED panels might be a must-have for top-end TVs, but you could be in for a long wait until you’ll be able to get a Samsung set equipped with the tech. A new report from the OLED association has predicted Samsung won’t be ready to launch an OLED TV until at least 2017. When it does, though, it’ll be a seriously high-end set. In order to stand out from LG and Panasonic, which are already selling (o...[Read More]
LG might have accidentally revealed the existence of an 8K iMac. In a press release hyping up 8K and discussing its own 98in 8K TV, the South Korean tech giant mentioned that “Apple has also announced that they will release the iMac 8K with a super-high resolution display this year”. LG manufactures the 5K display used in Apple’s existing 5K Retina Display iMac, so naturally the ...[Read More]
This year promises to be the one in which 4K finally becomes affordable for the masses, but Sharp’s already moving beyond it towards 8K. The Sharp Aquos Beyond 4K Ultra HDTV, revealed at CES yesterday, uses some technical wizardry to, as the name would suggest, go beyond 4K. While it has a standard 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160, the display also contains 66 million sub pixels – which, a...[Read More]
4K is the coming thing, but it seems that LG is going to be doubling that resolution for their star players at the upcoming CES event set to take place in Vegas next year. According to a CNET report, citing “LG insiders”, the South Korean company has made arrangements to get an 8K 55-inch TV set to Las Vegas. The TV, which is apparently codenamed ‘Mabinogion’ is said to fea...[Read More]
A lovely fellow by the name of K-putt has, through the use of a graphics mod, made it possible for us the see the how gaming might look in two or three generation’s time (for consoles, at least). K-putt tweaked Crysis 3’s main Windows program to let it run in 8K resolution, or more specifically, 8 000 x 3 333. For those keeping score that’s about 13 times more pixels than a standard HD image and t...[Read More]
