Samsung’s 2022 lineup of Neo QLED TVs and soundbars set to hit our shores

Note: This article was first published on 14 April 2022.

Mark Kim of Samsung introducing the 2022 range of TVs coming to Singapore.

We first got a glimpse of Samsung’s 2022 TV range during CES 2022. So, the lineup of 4K and 8K QLED and Neo QLED displays aren’t exactly a surprise. But, while last year saw the Q series soundbar make its introduction here early this year, this year, we have three!

 

New features enhance the Neo QLED experience

The 2022 Neo QLED 8K is their flagship QN900B series and has all the bells and whistles you’d expect to see included from CES 2022. The QN900B series will come in 85-inches, 75-inches, and 65-inches.

We spoke about Shape Adaptive Light technology in January along with Real Depth Enhancer and they are combined here with the new Neural Quantum Processor 8K with its 20 independent neural AI networks to deliver the ultimate image for viewing, in terms of clarity, brightness, and image depth in these QN900B Neo QLED 8K TVs.

But it is sound where these excel, coming with Object Tracking Sound (OTS) technology and true Dolby Atmos. OTS helps audio follow an object around on screen. For example, a person talking in a crowd, or a jet flying through a canyon will have the right sound follow it as the object moves across the screen. True Dolby Atmos is delivered via the new top-firing speakers built into the TVs.

Multi-View brings everything you'd want to watch together at a glance.

Other goodies included in them are the ability for Multi View, with the largest QN900B TVs able to simultaneously show up to four different streams of content at once. There is also the Game Mode with the much-touted GameBar so you don’t need to pause the game to access certain gaming functions like the map.

But these aren’t the only displays or even the only Neo QLED 8K displays from Samsung.

There are four more in two models, the QN800B and QN700B, each with two models that come in 75-inch and 65-inch displays respectively.

Not the only game in town

But Neo QLED 8K displays aren’t the only visual goodies coming to Singapore.

For those of us who are discerning viewers without a wallet to match, there are new Neo QLED 4K TVs coming.

A total of eight Neo QLED 4K TV displays are divided into three model series.

The Samsung One Connect box that helps hide all the wires.

The QN95B has three display sizes that come in 75-inch, 65-inch, and 55-inch displays. The QN90B only comes in a single 50-inch display while the final QN85B series has four display sizes that come in 85-inches, 75-inches, 65-inches, and 55-inches.

More than mere accessories

But Samsung sees TVs as more than something used for entertainment. They can also be used as lifestyle statements.

Samsung has three lifestyle TVs, the Frame, Sero, and Serif. This year, the new models feature an anti-glare, matte display that reduces light reflections, allowing users to see what is shown on the screen clearly. Samsung says that the paintings shown will be more realistic than ever before.

Samsung has quite a range of lifestyle display products.

During our hands-on, we were shown how the Multi-View feature could potentially allow a user to watch multiple streams of content at once. For example, watching up to four football matches at the same time during the World Cup using multiple streaming sources.

The Frame will come in five display sizes, ranging from 75-inches down to 43-inches in size.

The I-shaped Serif now has a new matte frame to accompany its matte display and will come in 55-inch and 43-inch display sizes. The Sero only has a single display size of 43-inches.

The company is tying up with local design house Commune so your Frame can change its look to suit your lifestyle.

Those who purchase the Frame can purchase access to 1,600 pieces of art from galleries around the world for S$6.99. They can also purchase the artwork for themselves for S$27.90 if they decide to forgo the monthly fee. This year, Samsung has partnered with the National Gallery to offer 10 pieces of digital artwork from the institutional gallery dedicated to promoting Singapore and Southeast Asian art for users to admire at home.

There are also new accessories to personalise these even more to suit your lifestyle. This year, these include:

  • Auto-Rotating Wall Mount and Stand: users can choose to view their TV in portrait or landscape modes, depending on the orientation of their artwork.
  • SlimFit Cam: The SlimFit Cam is an ultra-slim and detachable camera that can be positioned on top of the TV and used for video calls if the TV is used as a second display.
  • Exclusive bezel designs for The Frame: Samsung Singapore has partnered with Singapore-based furniture design and lifestyle company, Commune, to create a series of new bezel designs in different colours. This will be available from Q3 2022.
  • Bespoke Carrier for The Freestyle: Samsung Singapore collaborated with local fashion label Pedro, to launch a one-of-a-kind carrier for The Freestyle. This will be available from October 2022.

Not forgetting the importance of sound

The Q990B delivers 11.1.4 channels of audio. Who knew there could be so many! Image source: Samsung.

Samsung is introducing three new soundbar series with refreshed designs with technology enhancements to provide a more immersive, three-dimensional audio experience.

The three models of the top-of-the-line Q series are the Q990B, Q800B, and Q600B. The Q990B features wireless rear speakers and true 11.1.4Ch sound, providing a complete audio experience by reproducing all action on the screen and delivering audio in 11 different directions. Samsung also says that the Q Series soundbars are the first in the world to come with Wireless Dolby Atmos connectivity, a wireless Smart TV-to-soundbar connection that allows both the display and the soundbar speakers to produce Dolby Digital audio experiences without using additional cables.

Moving on, the B550 and B450 models in the B-Series are both 2.1 channel soundbars with Dolby Digital and DTS. The main difference is in the power output and type of DTS support.

The Ultra Slim is the only series to have a single model but is also the only to come in two colours (black and white). The model is a 3.1.2 channel soundbar with Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual:X support. It also connects via Wi-Fi and BlueTooth.

Singaporeans have the chance to get either the Q800B or Q600B for free if they sign up or re-contract a two-year 2Gbps Fibre plan with StarHub. They will also get a free Smart Wi-Fi Pro router worth S$399, as well as being able to enjoy free Disney+ and Netflix Premium subscriptions. This promotion will be available from 14 April, for a limited time only.
