Samsung launches more affordable Q700T 8K LCD TVs

31 Aug 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung's new Q700T LCD TVs are the most affordable 8K models from the company to date, starting at £2000 for a 55-inch model.

Samsung Q700T 8K TVs

Ahead of the semi-cancelled IFA 2020 show in Berlin this week, Samsung has unveiled a range of more affordable Q700T LCD TVs with a scaled-down zone-dimming LED system (Direct Full Array 12x versus 24x on Q800T) – even fewer zones than Q90T/Q95T that we found underwhelming. The company is characterizing the new sets as "entry-level 8K", They will be available in 55- and 65-inch versions. Samsung said that the TVs will support AMD FreeSync and VRR as well as many of its 2020 features such as Object Tracking Sound+ for improved audio and Hollywood's Filmmaker Mode.

Samsung's other high-end models for 2020 are equipped with a single HDMI 2.1 port (HDMI4). We are chasing confirmation this week as Samsung will be hosting an "IFA" live-stream.

Samsung Q700T 8K QLED LCD

The LCD TVs will be marketed as 8K "QLED" due to the presence of a quantum dot film behind the LCD panel. Quantum dots can help expand the color gamut. The TVs come with Samsung's Tizen operating system and access to streaming apps such as Disney+, Netflix, HBO, and the Apple TV app. Samsung was an early mover on 8K technology but a dearth of 8K content and tough competition from high-end 4K TVs has made 8K a hard sell. Research firms including Omdia (IHS Markit) have slashed sales forecast for 8K TVs repeatedly. Samsung Q700T is available now in the UK in 55 and 65 inches for £2000 and £2700. Details regarding the US have yet to be announced but we expect Samsung to comment on wider availability later this week. Additional specifications can be found below.
