Forget LCD: Quantum TV is here

We've heard of quantum physics but how about a quantum TV?

Samsung’s new super skinny 4K Quantum Light-Emitting Diode (QLED) TVs are promising ‘true to life’ images that will revolutionise the display industry.

Its new army of 2017 Smart TV’s, including the QLED TV series - Q9, Q8, and Q7 - saw the light of day at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Korean TV maker Samsung's new Quantum dot technology allows the screen display even subtle colour differences at their true level, whether its 50 shades of black, pink or yellow.

The new QLED 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV's promises to reproduce 100 per cent of the DCI-P3 color space accurately, and marks a "major paradigm shift in the visual display," declared HyunSuk Kim, Samsung's head of Visual Display.

The uber bright Smart TV’s will be hitting our shores later this year, Samsung Australia confirmed although no confirmation of dates or prices. However, its likely they won't be cheap considering Samsung's 4K TV’s start at around AUD$2,000.

The other standout feature of the new Quantum Tv's is one single cable – the ‘Invisible Connection’, through which all peripheral devices can be gathered and connected to the TV, so no cluttered mess at the back.

There’s a choice of two stands - ‘Studio Stand’, which make the TV look like an painting on an easel, or Gravity Stand, which look like a sculpture rather than a 4K TV. There also a gap free mount if you want to stick it on the wall.

As well as the Smart Remote, the new QLED’s can controlled via smartphone or tablet.
