Sony announced the Master Series A95K, the world’s first QD-OLED 4K TV, at CES 2022.
It will be available in 65-inch and 55-inch versions later this year.
Compared to existing, conventional OLED TVs, which are currently known to provide the best picture quality, the company claims that the new TV would provide improved colors and viewing angles.
Instead of using a yellow and blue OLED composition to create white light, the A95K uses a revised manufacturing technology that combines a blue OLED base layer with red and blue quantum dots, giving the device its QD moniker.
According to the company, the new technique generally produces deeper and more saturated colors in bright areas, while OLED TVs tend to produce paler and less brilliant colors in certain areas.
What’s more, the QD-OLED display provides more vivid colors on both sides of the screen, allowing for a longer viewing distance.
It’s worth noting that Samsung has been working on a QD-OLED display for several years, which would be between the brand’s OLED and MicroLED screens, but Sony’s design will be the first to hit the market this year.
The design offers four HDMI inputs, two of which are HDMI 2.1 capable, as well as a trademark stand with adjustable front and rear positions, among other features.
