Samsung’s midrange QLED 4K TVs are getting a dual-LED backlight to improve contrast and colours

Samsung’s midrange QLED TVs are getting a dual-LED backlight to improve contrast and colours

Another new feature coming to select 2020 Samsung QLED TVs is a Dynamic Spectral Dual LED backlight that improves contrast and colour accuracy.

Simply put, this dual-LED tech, which is present in the new Q70T and Q60T QLED 4K series and lifestyle series like The Frame, uses LEDs with two different colour temperatures (5000K and 20000K) for the backlight unit.

Versus typical LED-lit LCD TVs that use LEDs with a fixed colour temperature, Samsung says its dual-LED implementation enables the TV’s BLU to vary the colour temperature until it finds one that best suits the content.

Light leakage is also reduced, which translates to a 27% increase in contrast in Movie mode.

In addition, Samsung says that it’s now using a film to cut down infrared and heat emitting from some of its screens. More specifically, this new thermal management solution is found on 75-inch and above QLED models.

In terms of lineup, the Q70T and Q60T QLED 4K TVs sit below the Q80T and Q95/Q90T. The more premium models come with other niceties such as Direct Full Array backlighting and Object Tracking Sound. As they're all QLED TVs, standard QLED features such as 100% colour volume, Quantum Processor 4K and Ambient Mode are available across the board.
