These are the 2020 Samsung QLED TVs that support HDMI 2.1, 4K @ 120Hz and eARC

According to FlatpanelsHD, Samsung has confirmed that both its 8K and 4K QLED TVs this year will feature HDMI 2.1.

The presence of HDMI 2.1 on the 2020 Q950T and Q800T QLED 8K TVs isn’t surprising — after all, last year’s Q900R also had it. However, this year’s models support more HDMI 2.1 features.

For instance, both Q950T and Q800T support HDMI eARC, something that’s missing on the Q900R. 8K @ 60Hz is also supported, so too 4K @ 120Hz. The latter is enabled by Fixed Rate Link (FRL), a new packet-based protocol used in the HDMI 2.1 spec for higher-resolution, higher-bandwidth signalling.

For the QLED 4K models, the Q95T, Q90T, Q80T (55-inch and up) and Q70T (55-inch and up) will also come with a full-bandwidth HDMI 2.1 port. Yup, like their 8K siblings, there’s only one HDMI 2.1 port, which is a bummer if you’ve multiple HDMI 2.1 devices.

Otherwise, the aforementioned QLED 4K TVs can also do 4K @ 120Hz, support FreeSync VRR, Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and eARC. With NVIDIA G-Sync support hopefully on its way, they’re pretty much ready for high-end gaming PCs and next-gen consoles.
