Get lost in the action
Samsung’s QN65Q80A delivers a rich, realistic picture that combines 4K detail and the precise illumination of a full-array LED backlight with local dimming. The panel’s localized lighting produces bright highlights and excellent shadow detail that will make movie nights a joy.
Samsung has put some effort into sound quality, too. The Q80A’s built-in 2.2.2-channel speaker system includes dedicated up-firing speakers that help create a more immersive sound experience. And its Object Tracking Sound technology uses AI-based software to match the TV’s sound with the movement of objects on the screen.
Samsung’s QLED sets are known for bright, vivid colors that pop off the screen, even in the brightest of rooms. HDR content is going to look great, but you don’t need a premium signal to enjoy excellent picture quality.
The Q80A’s Quantum Processor 4K uses Machine Learning to upgrade the picture for all kinds of sources. Content is analyzed scene by scene against its built-in database of images to create a sharper picture with lifelike texture and detail.
The Q80A has a lot in common with the pricier sets in this year’s Samsung lineup, including some great gaming features like 4K at 120Hz. It also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) via AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro for smooth, tear-free graphics and stunning HDR detail.
Game Mode is automatically activated thanks to ALLM support to reduce input lag for lightning fast response time. You can also make real-time adjustments to your settings using the dedicated pop-up menu called Game Bar.
Smart control options
Samsung’s already excellent remote got an eco-friendly upgrade this year. The new SolarCell Remote™ has a built-in solar cell that is sensitive enough to keep the battery charged using the basic indoor lights in your home. This simple change could keep millions of batteries out of the landfill and save you a trip to the store.
Like prior Samsung remotes, this version makes it easy to control all your connected devices. It also has a button to activate your choice of included voice assistants: Bixby, Google, or Alexa.
