Model names for Samsung's 2021 TVs have leaked, indicating that the South Korean company will launch 8K and 4K "QLED Neo" LCD TVs with miniLED, a refreshed 'The Frame', and more (via 4KFilme.de).
Samsung's 2021 TV line-up
Model names along with size classes were briefly listed on a Samsung support page for Czech Republic but were later removed. They provide us with a good indication of what to expect in 2021.
Samsung is apparently planning to launch QN900A and QN800A. We expect these to be 8K LCD TVs and successors to the current Q900TS and Q800T 8K models. As usual, the 'Q' refers to "QLED" while the 'N' may refer to "Neo". Together, these could form "QLED NEO" as reported by FlatpanelsHD.
Previously, Korean media reported that Samsung is planning to introduce miniLED-based LCD TVs in 2021, and we believe that QN900A and QN800A will be among the first. The new 8K TVs will be available in 65, 75, and 85-inch sizes, according to Samsung's support page.

New 4K LCD TVs
There are also new QN95A, QN90A, and QN85A ranges. We expect these to be 4K LCD TVs with miniLED backlight. These will be available in 50 to 85-inch sizes, according to Samsung's support page.
TCL launched the first LCD TVs with miniLED backlight in 2019 and LG has announced that it is planning to introduce its first LCD TVs with miniLED backlight sometime 2021.
Lastly, there are new Q80A, Q70A, Q60A, and The Frame 2021 (LS03A) as well as UA9000/AU9000 and UA8000/AU8000 ranges, as registered with the Korean Communications Commission (here). These are mid-range models and we expect them to be 4K LCD TVs with edge LED.
Samsung has officially announced that it will introduce HDR10+ Adaptive and its first LED TV in 2021.
Samsung will reveal its plans for 2021 at its First Look event on January 6 and at an event on January 11. However, if past years are any indication we will not be getting many specific model or technical details at the launch events.
