Unlike the 2021 vintage QLED Ultra HD 4K Q80A TV series which has four models, the Samsung Q80B has five diagonals, the Samsung QE50Q80A (50 ”, 127 cm), Samsung QE55Q80A (55 ”, 140 cm), Samsung QE65Q80A (65 ‘). ‘, 165 cm), Samsung QE75Q80A (75’ ‘, 191 cm) and Samsung QE85Q80A (85’ ‘, 216 cm).
Samsung Q80B, Full LED Local Dimming backlight system
Before going further with the presentation of these televisions, be aware that the Q80B screens are an important specimen of the Korean manufacturer’s range, among the QLED models and the QLED Mini LED. In summary, they send out most of the details of the Samsung QN85B models but no Mini LED backlighting, replaced here with a Full LED Local Dimming system. If the philosophy remains the same, with diodes placed behind the LCD panel, there are even fewer of them, equal to the number of zones (48 according to our information).
Samsung Q80B, focus on design
The design of the Q80B vintage 2022 series, dubbed the Q Stylish, remains the same as the Q80A vintage 2021 televisions. Note that the thickness of the TV is larger than from other series, Full LED Local Dimming backlight system requires.
Of course, there is no One Connect box on the Samsung Q80B TV, the connection is directly on the TV, on the back.
Samsung Q80B, main details
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Q80B Ultra HD 4K QLED TVs include a native 10-bit and 100 Hz LCD panel with a PQI 3800 fluidity index (PQI 3200 at 50 ”). They also benefit from the Quantum Processor 4K processor that combines Machine Learning and Deep Learning processes for a total of 16 artificial intelligence modules (compared to 20 in the higher TV series) to work for better quality in the image.
As a reminder, the Deep Learning process is based on a neural model, i.e. there is no human intervention (unlike Machine Learning) in processor learning. It decides on its own the necessary changes to image processing algorithms to recover the best quality starting with a degraded display.
Another improvement is the EyeComfort Mode function which, once the television is connected to the Internet, slowly changes the light and color temperature of the image according to the time of day, for the best viewing comfort of all. weather. The latter, for example, reduces the blue light emitted at night to improve sleep in sensitive people.
Samsung Q80B, peak brightness at 1500 nits
Even if the Q80B’s displays lack a Mini LED backlight system, their peak light performance is still good at 1500 nits. This is an even more interesting element for an unprecedented HDR experience, knowing that the Q80B screens handle HDR10, HDR10+, HDR10+ Adaptive and HDR HLG.
Seriously, Q80B screens do not have a QLC (Quantum Light Control) coating with an extremely low reflectance index (reflection is virtually nonexistent). On the other hand, they have benefited from the increased viewing angle through Ultra Viewing Angle Technology (inaugurated in 2019).
Samsung Q80B, Adaptive Sound+, AVA, OTS and Dolby Atmos
The sound section is also in the spotlight on Samsung Q80B TVs. The first is about the OTS process. It has a total of six speakers placed behind the screen (2.2.2 system) for a total power output of 60 watts. Good news, Dolby Atmos track compatibility is already in place.
For others, we see the Q-Symphony 2.0 function. The latter consists, in the presence of a connected Samsung Q ‑ Series 2020/2021/2022 soundbar, to take advantage of the television speakers in addition to the soundbar to increase its sound reproduction, magnitude and spatialization. .
In fact, until then, if a sound bar is connected to a TV, the speakers will later no longer be connected. With the Q ‑ Symphony system signed by Samsung, they remain active and have contributed greatly to the visual improvement of audio with configurations up to 11.1.4 depending on the soundbar connected. And the demonstration we’ve witnessed really demonstrates the effectiveness of the process and its relevance. That is, if the soundbar is connected wirelessly to the television (via Wi ‑ Fi), the handling of Dolby Atmos soundtracks is of course also provided wirelessly.
The Adaptive Sound + function, an evolution of Adaptive Sound that is still able to adjust TV audio settings in real time according to the displayed image, is now considered the listening room. Otherwise, the AVA (Active Voice Amplifier) function is still required, intended to cover the new noise around the TV, automatically. For example a kettle or a vacuum cleaner that can be covered with a volume increase is controlled directly on the TV. Don’t panic, the TV will turn down the volume, automatically constantly, when the noise stops.
Samsung Q80B, Multiview function
Another development, the Samsung Q80B 4K Ultra HD QLED TVs offer simultaneous on-screen display of two contents with MultiView function through so many windows: the first with a signal from one TV channel or another source connected to TV; the second with a screen on the user’s smartphone or from a game console, or even the internet (see photo below). There are many display possibilities, from the classic PIP to the display of two adjacent windows.
Good point, HDMI 2.1 standard is required with VRR, Freesync Premium Pro, ALLM, HFR 4K/120 and eARC compatibility on four inputs. And to activate the Mirroring mode between the Samsung Galaxy smartphone and Samsung Q80B TV, all you have to do, thanks to the Tap View function, is touch the second first, and you’re done.
Samsung Q80B, Amazon Alexa, Bixby, Google Assistant and new Tizen
In 2022, Tizen’s interface will change radically for more advanced ergonomics on the one hand, to give pride of place to the interior on the other. That is, Samsung is now working with Internet access providers to develop IP TV applications that allow you to enjoy them directly from a Smart TV and eliminate the need for a TV decoder. Therefore, Orange TV can be accessed with a Login/mdp like myCanal for example.
Bixby voice assistant is still available, as are Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. And it is possible to easily switch from one to another via the menu. In the connectivity menu, we need to mention the Wi ‑ Fi 5 function, Bluetooth 5.2 and AirPlay 2 compatibility plus many communication features (Google Duo For example for video calls) or the possibility of working with these Microsoft documents via Cloud on TV screen.
There are also 16/9, 21/9 or even 32/9 display modes for video game enthusiasts with a connection to a PC and the Game Motion Plus mode. As a reminder, the latter (adapted to video games as its name suggests) is very interesting because it allows you to activate the TV action compensation process with games while maintaining a relatively low Lag of Input. Not to forget the new remote control, still solar-powered but capable, by 2022, of being recharged by RF (radio frequency). So, the zappette takes advantage of the Wi ‑ Fi in your box to recharge regularly.
Of course, the SmartThings function is still available. The group’s IoT (Internet of Things or Internet of Things) platform is compatible with Android and iOS and several hundred devices from other brands (Arlo-type surveillance cameras, Amazon Echo or Google Home-type smart speakers, Philips Hue-type connected lights., Connected lock…). Samsung Smart TVs are thus able to adapt to the most modern interactive ecosystem with a huge advantage, directly linked to their DNA, the possibility of displaying a lot of information on their screen: the new human face. or just rang in front. door, the contents of the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator, notifications from the robot vacuum cleaner or even from the washing machine when the cleaning or washing cycle is over. Thus the television has become the preferred interface for accessing the devices offered by the Smart Home device.
