8K has to be the future of everything from video games to video entertainment. We have discussed 8K multiple times in the past and we hope that there will be a time when PC’s will pioneer 8K like they have with 4K.
Well this time around things are different. Samsung has decided to step into the 8k game alongside LG, Sony and other manufacturers. We all know how good samsung are at making UHD OLED displays found in their smartphones. Samsung as always is going all out for their first ever 8k TV.
Samsung Electronics will officially unveil its first 8K TV, the Q900R QLED 8K, at this year’s IFA event in Berlin. The TV will be available in 65, 75, 82 and 85-inch models and will have an advanced never before seen 8k AI upscaling technology so you never have to worry about those jagged edges on your favourite TV shows anymore.

Samsung believes that as time passes people tend to prefer TV’s with even larger sizes and just last year Samsung sold over 16million units of TVs above the 65 inch mark. This makes for an even bigger excuse to push 8K in for consumers because with great sizes come great pixel counts.
Now for the new intelligent AI, Samsung claims that it will allow us to watch just about anything in extremely neat 8K resolution now they claim that this best suits to the video’s native resolution being 4K but works well with HD, FHD and UHD.
The 8K OLED will be available in stores from end of September 2018. Here is what they have to say about it.
“At Samsung, we’ve worked tirelessly over the years to move the industry forward when it comes to premium picture quality, and the introduction of our QLED 8K with 8K AI Upscaling is an integral component as we look to the future of displays,” said Jongsuk Chu, Senior Vice President of Visual
The TV will house over 30 million pixels and with that amount of pixels packed into a 65 inch display the human eye, even up close won’t be able to tell each pixel apart from the other. This will allow pictures to look even more realistic and live.
This step by Samsung will further push GPU manufacturers for 8K and will also encourage other brands to adopt 8K for the future. PC gamers as a whole are desperately waiting for 8K to become the norm and for 8K monitors to come out. If the survey is correct, it’ll be no time when 8K displays will roll out from every different brand out there.
