Samsung Unveils 2021 Neo QLED, MICRO LED and Lifestyle TV Lines
If you’re in the market for a new television, you are definitely going to want to check out these new TV offerings from Samsung, which they unveiled today virtually ahead of CES.
Neo QLED Takes a Quantum Leap in TV Display Technology
Samsung is introducing a new Neo QLED display technology to its flagship 8K and 4K models. They’re taking QLED to the next level enabled by new light source, Quantum Mini LED, that’s precisely controlled by Quantum Matrix Technology and Neo Quantum Processor, a powerful picture processor optimized for Neo QLED.
Samsung designed the Quantum Mini LED to be 40x smaller than a conventional LED. Instead of using a lens to disperse light, and a package to fix the LED in place, the Quantum Mini LED has incredibly thin micro layers filled with many more LEDs.
Quantum Matrix Technology enables ultra-fine & precise control of the densely packed LEDs, preventing blooming, and allowing viewers to enjoy content as its meant to be seen. Neo QLED increases the luminance scale to 12-bit with 4096 steps; this helps make dark areas darker and bright areas brighter, resulting in a more precise and immersive HDR experience.
And Neo QLED benefits from Samsung’s proprietary, powerful Neo Quantum Processor with enhanced upscaling capabilities. By using up to 16 different neural network models, each one trained in AI upscaling and deep learning technology, the NQP can optimize picture quality to 4K and 8K picture output regardless of the input quality.
Samsung’s 2021 Neo QLED 8K features a new Infinity One Design – a nearly bezel-less screen providing an even more immersive viewing experience in a sleek design and form factor. And Neo QLED 8K’s attachable Slim One Connect box – an all-new cable management system that can be attached to the TV’s back—allows for an easier install and cleaner aesthetic.
The 2021 Neo QLED 8K also packs in several premium, room-filling audio features, like Object Tracking Sound Pro’s dynamic sound corresponds to the movement of objects on screen, and SpaceFit Sound analyzes the installed TV’s physical environment and outputs immersive sound tailored specifically to your space.
Lastly, Samsung’s 2021 Neo QLED 8K and 4K models offer smart features that expand the role of the TV and help users meet their changing needs when it comes to fitness, entertainment and the home office.

Opening A New Era of Breathtaking Picture Quality and Design with MICRO LED
In 2021, the promise of Micro LED comes home. With the new MICRO LED line, Samsung has made Micro LED available in a traditional TV form factor for the first time, bringing users a breathtaking visual experience on an ultra-large next-generation screen.
Available in 110″, 99″, and smaller sizes by the end of the year, the new MICRO LED line uses micrometer-sized LED lights to eliminate backlight and color filters utilized in conventional displays. It is self-illuminating, producing stunningly lifelike colors and brightness through its 24 million individually controlled LEDs. And with a Monolith Design defined by over 99% screen-to-body ratio, all you will see is the breathtaking picture quality.
Samsung has innovated its Smart TV features to take advantage of the new MICRO LED line’s massive screen. For example, consumers can use the 4Vue (Quad View) feature to comfortably watch up to four different content sources simultaneously on one screen. Viewers can connect multiple external devices to keep up with multiple playoff games at once, or stream a walkthrough while playing a video game—all in stunning quality and size.
Finally, the new MICRO LED’s dynamic audio experience is just as immersive as its visuals. With Majestic Sound, it delivers breathtaking 5.1 channel sound with no external speaker—transforming any room into a luxurious home theater.
Enhancing the Award-Winning Lifestyle TV Portfolio
Samsung is also making enhancements to its 2021 Lifestyle TV line with new design and form factors to reflect the changing interests and tastes of consumers. Since launching in 2017, The Frame has redefined the television, transforming displays into stunning works of art, with over one million units sold.
The 2021 version builds on The Frame’ innovative legacy, offering even more customization in a slimmer form. The Frame is about half as thin as previous models, mirroring the depth of a traditional picture frame. New attachable bezel options come in 5 color options and 2 different customizable styles (Modern and Beveled) to match the aesthetic of your room.
With a subscription to The Frame’s all-new Art Store, consumers will be able to enjoy 1,400+ carefully curated pieces. Samsung’s new AI-based auto-curation technology better analyzes individual consumer preferences to recommend artwork.
With near-endless options for customization, Samsung’s lifestyle TV portfolio including The Frame, The Serif, The Sero, The Terrace, and The Premiere immediately upgrade the décor of any home.
