Samsung TV Lineup 2022 – Range & details

Samsung’s new TV portfolio will be available in stores starting in April 2022. Like in the past year, the models mainly include QLED and Neo QLED TVs. Apart from that, the South Korean electronics manufacturer continues to focus on an 8K series and has revamped its lifestyle TV “The Frame”. A real novelty that has not been seen before is a cautious jump on the OLED bandwagon, which the company has avoided for so long.

QD-OLED Lineup

What characterises this product line? After a long period of reticence, Samsung has finally joined the OLED segment and not only expanded its own range with the Samsung S95B QD-OLED, but also made its debut in the field of self-luminous pixels at the same time. However, not without first adjusting the existing technology.

Premium TV

S95B Series

The Samsung S95B combines an OLED layer with Quantum Dots to create a fantastic picture. Colours look richer and the picture is brighter than conventional OLED models.

This makes it a great TV for movie and series fans. Furthermore, you hardly have to worry about reflections and the viewing angle is wide enough to gather the whole family in front of the TV.

However, Samsung still does not have support for Dolby Vision. However, the S95B still offers a wide range of features for gamers. Not only does the QD-OLED have four HDMI 2.1 connections, but also the Samsung Gaming Hub.

Cloud gaming is a big priority for the company, so you can start playing directly on a controller without the need for a console. The TV also offers a good foundation for sound and smart apps, although you should improve the sound with external devices.

Neo QLED Lineup

What characterises this product line? The so-called Neo QLED TVs from Samsung use panels based on mini-LED technology. This product segment is made up of UHD models, which have been established on the market for some time, on one hand, and 8K or UHD-2 TVs, which are still struggling with a difficult situation, on the other.

Midrange TV

QN85B Series

If you’re looking for a modern, mid-range backlit TV with a good price-performance rating, the QN85B could be just the model for you. Based on mini-LEDs, this device offers comparatively good brightness, making it ideal for rooms with rather bright lighting conditions and for use throughout the day.

Compared to its predecessor, Samsung has upgraded the QN85B and now provides four HDMI ports in the 2.1 version. Otherwise, the TV is equipped with all the important connections, including a twin tuner, USB recording and PVR.

However, the useful One Connect Box, which reduces cable clutter, is reserved for the 4K and 8K top-of-the-line models. As usual, audio performance tends to take place in a relatively limited frequency spectrum and should therefore only be considered as a temporary solution. This is why we recommend a soundbar solution that is compatible with the eARC standard.

QN90B Series

For those who can make slight concessions in terms of peak brightness and save a few euros on the purchase price, the Samsung Neo QLED QN90B is a good choice.

This model is almost identical to its big brother QN95B, but it lacks the practical One Connect Box as a additional interface solution.

Apart from that, its maximum brightness is “only” 1800 nits. Even with that, the panel is still bright enough and generates more than enough HDR brilliance on the screen.

Nevertheless, the QN90B offers excellent picture quality thanks to the mini-LED technology and the well-working local dimming. Movies and series will look stunning on this TV.

PC gamers, however, will have to be satisfied with a 120 hertz panel, as the 144 hertz frame rate is reserved for the flagship model.

QN95B Series

The perfect choice for those looking for a particularly bright TV is the Samsung Neo QLED QN95B. With a peak brightness of around 2200 nits, the QN95B offers a precise display and extremely high luminance.

The South Korean electronics manufacturer has also given its flagship a 14-bit HDR mapping to create an authentic cinema experience. In addition, the QN95B is very stable and still shows a clear reproduction even from an inclined position to the screen.

Thanks to the freely positionable One Connect Box, tangled cables are a thing of the past, and the native Dolby Atmos speakers set the mini LED TV apart from many of its competitors.

For gaming enthusiasts, the QN95B offers a wide range of features, including four full HDMI 2.1 ports with ALLM, FreeSync Pro, G-Sync and a Gamebar. Unfortunately, Dolby Vision is not part of the Samsung-labelled TVs.

The QN95B’s 144 hertz panel also allows it to be used as a second monitor on a computer. In summary, the Samsung Neo QLED QN95B is an excellent choice for particularly bright lighting conditions in the room and high expectations of colour brilliance.

QN700B Series

Let’s get straight to the point of the entry level model from Samsung’s 8K range. The main difference compared to the larger models is the HDMI standard in combination with the refresh rate. This means that you will find neither 120 hertz nor version 2.1 on the HDMI ports of the QN700B.

Although the resolution is generally more than sufficient, full-fledged next-gen gaming is still not possible on this basis. For that, the priority of the console manufacturers would have to be distributed differently. Nowadays, however, it is no longer just the resolution that is decisive. Apart from that, the smallest model with a power of 60 watts also has the “slimmest” sound system.

Moreover, the so-called Object Tracking Sound Lite feature is the only way to achieve three-dimensional surround sound, as this TV cannot reproduce dynamic motion-based sounds. If you want to use the full potential in this area, you should at least consider a good soundbar solution with a subwoofer.

QN800B Series

In comparison to the flagship model Samsung QN900B, you will notice some differences when you take a closer look at the data sheet of the QN800B. For example, the device of the upper mid-range 8K class only has Quantum HDR 2000, which results in a lowered peak brightness.

Unlike the QN700B, Samsung’s mid-range 8K solution is already equipped with a 120 hertz panel based on the current HDMI 2.1 standard. This has advantages in motion handling and allows you to use practically all next-gen features if required.

Apart from that, the output power of the speakers has been reduced by a total of 20 watts. However, the lower output of the sound system should not be too important for a TV in this price range, since a full-fledged home cinema system is recommended here anyway.

In addition, compared to its big brother, the QN800B only offers the OTS+ function for sound tracking of objects on the screen.

QN900B Series

The latest addition to Samsung’s 8K series, the high-end top model Samsung Neo QLED QN900B operates on a base load of mini LEDs. This technology enables greater precision based on separately controllable light zones in the TV’s panel.

Powering this process is the Neural Quantum Processor 8K, which operates within the slim body of the luxury TV. Samsung’s Infinity One design approach makes the display edge almost invisible and allows the TV to almost disappear with an extremely small stainless steel frame and a razor-thin panel with a depth of barely more than 18 millimetres.

Quantum Matrix technology, also found in other models, provides a high peak brightness. This feature increases the number of illumination levels fourfold and therefore the so-called tone mapping of 12 to a full 14 bits.

As a result, a more precise control of different brightness areas within a scene on the screen is possible. The integrated 6.2.4 channel sound system with 90 watts and Dolby Atmos creates a virtual, three-dimensional sound impression.

QLED Lineup

What characterises this product line? The QLED family offers more affordable mid-range models and is also interesting for gaming enthusiasts who are already satisfied with solid but comparatively low-priced entry level options.

Entry Level TV

Q60B Series

The Q60B is one of the most affordable TVs that Samsung has to offer. This is enough to cover some of the current features such as HDR10+ Adaptive, OTS Sound in the Lite version and Q-Symphony.

So-called Dual-LED technology once again provides two colour temperatures in order to be able to adapt the picture as optimally as possible to the displayed content.

In terms of gaming, you will have to do without a few things. These include HDMI 2.1, 120 hertz and the Samsung Gaming Hub. Accordingly, the option of streaming games directly to the screen via cloud gaming without a console is also not available. The low-priced QLED TV is also rather modest in terms of sound.

Only a 2-channel solution with 20 watts is available ex works. Of course, this does not create a real cinema feeling. At least the aforementioned OTS feature creates a virtual surround sound environment.

Entry Level TV

Q70B Series

With the Samsung Q70B, you get a wide range of gaming features. Starting with the 120 Hertz display, a fast input response of about 5 milliseconds and the four HDMI 2.1 connections. Compared to its predecessor, the Samsung Q70A, this TV is really well designed for gaming.

To further enhance the gaming experience, VRR via FreeSync, Nvidia G-Sync and Auto Low Latency Mode are also on board. Dolby Vision is not supported, however. Although the Q70B’s backlight is sufficiently bright, only edge dimming is used as the technology.

In other words, the illumination is not as precise as in the mini-LED models of the Neo QLED series. The viewing angle is also somewhat limited, so you should not sit at an incline in front of the screen, otherwise the picture quality will visibly decrease.

However, the motion handling benefits from the high frame rate of the panel and displays content cleanly and smoothly. Overall, the Samsung Q70B is a good choice for gaming fans who are not willing to spend a lot of money on high-end devices.

Q80B Series

The top model from the QLED series comes into your room with the Samsung Q80B. Using a Full Array panel based on Direct-LED, this TV achieves a comparatively good black level and high contrast at the same time.

To be precise, we have to distinguish between the VA panel, which you’ll find in the 50- and 85-inch versions, and the lower-contrast, but viewing-angle-stable IPS versions in the 55″, 65″ and 75″ inch sizes.

Although the HDR performance is not outstanding, it is acceptable for a TV in this price range with a peak of 800 nits. In terms of sound, the model uses 2.2-channel speakers, which with an output power of 40 watts ensure sufficient dialogue clarity, but do not put cinematic audio performance in your ears.

To benefit directly from the real advantages of native Dolby Atmos sound, we recommend choosing an external sound solution. Gamers among you who generally prefer next-gen features should avoid the small version of the Q80B. Samsung has only installed a 60 hertz panel here.

In addition, you will find features such as a game mode via ALLM, FreeSync Premium Pro and a quick response time of around 10 milliseconds on the screen.

Lifestyle Lineup

What characterises this product line? In terms of design and lifestyle, Samsung 2022 is once again stepping up to the plate. The Frame is one of the best-known so-called picture frame TVs available in this category, and aims to integrate itself into your interior design in the best possible way again this year.

Midrange Design TV

The Frame 2022

With “The Frame 2022”, the South Korean manufacturer is launching an additional revised version of its design TVs. Compared to its predecessor, the model from the 2022 line-up has a matt anti-reflective coating and an included wall mount in slim-fit design.

The device can be customised by replacing the black bezels with various coloured covers. Artworks from a variety of categories can be downloaded via the Samsung Art Store and displayed using the so-called Art Mode.

Another option is to integrate your personal works on the TV by app. However, you will have to make compromises in terms of picture quality, as there are no mini-LEDs or local dimming function.

Nevertheless, “The Frame 2022” has a native refresh rate of 120 hertz and HDMI 2.1 ports, which makes it a good gaming TV if you need it to be. Like its predecessor, its intended for buyers who value a coherent interior design but still do not want to do without a TV device.

UHD Lineup

What characterises this product line? This year, Samsung is offering conventional, meaning basic UHD devices with the BU label. These TVs are designed to be easy on the wallet and still bring a solid picture performance to the floor.

Budget TV

BU8079 Series

If you generally don’t have a lot of money or are simply looking for an affordable model in relation to its size, the Samsung BU8079 could be an option worth considering.

However, you will have to do without some functions with this model. In terms of picture quality, it can’t hold a candle to the higher-end QLED and NEQ QLED series. On the other hand, you can get the BU8079 in sizes up to 85 inches.

Considering the comparatively low price, this TV at least offers decent contrast thanks to the VA panel, even if the viewing angle is limited as a result.

True HDR brilliance is not available but with an appropriate offer, you can get a lot of television for relatively little money.
