Before buying an 8K TV it is necessary to take all the time to better evaluate the features that you want most
As we know, the technology applied to TV has made great strides in recent years. The latest frontier in entertainment is represented by 8K televisions that offer four times the resolution of current 4K televisions. Unlike early 4K TVs, which often had prohibitively expensive prices, 8K TVs are starting to drop in price, thanks to a more affordable cost for mid-range consumers.
Best 8K Smart TVs: the best on the market
In this article, written in collaboration with the experts of Consigliopro.it, we will recommend the best models currently available on the market, plus everything you need to know about the technology of 8K televisions and how they work, to make a thoughtful and aware.
LG 86QNED996QB Smart TV 8K
The LG is an impressive 8K TV, with great picture quality, amazing sound quality and great value for money. This is a large TV with an 86-inch screen and is HDR10+ certified, which means it can play HDR content.
The color accuracy of this TV is excellent, as are its brightness levels. This is guaranteed by LG’s quantum dot and nanocell technology which offer more refined and purer colors than any other TV on the market.
Artificial technology, supported by the very powerful a9 gen5 8k processor, allows upscaling to 8k: that is, it automatically transforms videos with lower resolution, transforming them into the highest possible quality. The mini LED backlighting is extremely effective with the Precision DimmingPro+ patent, this guarantees high brightness and a much higher contrast than the average.
The audio sector is first-rate with Dolby Vision IQ (Precision Detail) and Dolby Atmos. This allows for a more immersive audiovisual experience found in Dolby environments such as the cinema.
Last feature, the spearhead of the LG brand is represented by the very fast app management software, and the pointer remote control. A magic wand that turns the remote control into a pointer mouse. The model is available in the 65,75 or 86 inch version.
SAMSUNG Neo QLED QE85QN800BTXZT
The Samsung Neo QLED QE85QN800BTXZT offers an incredible visual experience with 8K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate supported by proprietary Quantum Matrix Pro technology. It has an ultra-slim design with a minimal bezel Neo QLED screen for a more immersive viewing experience . The TV is Smart TV with voice control, so you can use your voice to ask Alexa (or google assistant) to change the channel or volume. It also supports HDR10+, also equipped with the incredible 8K Neural Quantum processor that allows the images of each source to be transformed into the extraordinary 8K definition, thanks to the integrated advanced artificial intelligence. Ambient mode automatically adjusts brightness, contrast and color temperature depending on whether the room is dark or bright. This reduces eye strain and saves energy, reducing power consumption by up to 20% compared to traditional LCD TVs of a similar size. The model is available in the 65,75 or 85 inch version.
LG has once again set the bar in television technology with the world’s first 8K OLED TV, LG 75NANO996. A true work of art, this stunning 75-inch screen offers a resolution so clear and crisp, you’ll feel like you’re looking through a window into another dimension.
The exceptional picture quality is due to the use of LG’s OLED display technology. Unlike traditional LED backlit TVs that create light from behind the screen, OLED displays produce their own light source at every pixel location on the screen, resulting in perfect blacks and infinite contrast ratio for an unmatched viewing experience. The result? A spectacularly realistic image, with true-to-life colors, like no other camera on the market today!
AI technology and Upscaling
High-resolution TVs such as 8k have developed artificial intelligences such as Samsung’s AI Neural Quantum Engine and LG’s ThinQ AI technology that allow a more immersive viewing experience thanks to them, with intuitive and easy-to-use functions that improve playback of the contents. These high-end TVs feature AI Scaling and AI Color, which use the power of artificial intelligence processing to improve picture quality, resolution and screen clarity. In fact, also thanks to deep learning (automatic image enhancement technique) it is possible to enjoy images incredibly rich in detail, with natural colors and with improved brightness levels, even in lower resolution multimedia sources (for example full hd or 4k ), which are thus more appreciable, especially on larger screens, such as those offered by today’s 8k TVs.
8k: next generation visual experience
8K is the next generation display technology that offers a huge increase in resolution over 4K. In fact, an 8K television has a pixel density four times higher than that of a 4K television, which makes the image clearer and sharper, with greater detail and realism.
8K uses 8192 x 4320 pixels to create images, which translates to 33 million pixels, which is 25 million more than 4K, providing even more detail than full HD (1920 x 1080). This means that even when viewed closely, the image will appear incredibly detailed and lifelike.
With these new screens, it will be really difficult, even up close, to identify the pixels with the naked eye. This guarantees a visual sharpness never seen before, which opens the door to a new era of home theater strongly oriented towards realism.
Ever thinner and more elegant designs
These latest generation Smart TVs offer not only extraordinary visual quality but also displays with ever thinner and more elegant designs. The frames are increasingly refined or even absent in some cases, the lines and colors simple, clean and delicate. The weight also benefits, thanks to the use of increasingly smaller production processes, for an overall increasingly minimalist look.
Ever faster operating systems
A world of entertainment increasingly within reach, in fact, thanks to ever faster and more advanced operating systems, it is possible to access all the most famous streaming services active in Italy and around the world.
Voice control, and access to home automation is standard in this price range. It is possible to control the TV with the voice using Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Samsung Bixby 2.0 to turn on, turn off or change channels. They can also be used as real smart PCs, with the ability to surf the web, install apps or even games to your liking.
Before buying an 8K TV it is necessary to take all the time to better evaluate the features that you want most. You will have to choose the one with all the most important features for you, from the dimensions, to the applied technology up to the audio quality, and I recommend, always watch your wallet.
