Samsung’s LG-made OLED TVs are coming to Europe with a less confusing name… sort of

Samsung confirmed at IFA 2023 that its first OLED TVs to  function LG’s WOLED panels might be coming not solely to the US however to Europe too (through The TVs will reportedly be out there in 77- and 83-inch sizes. Earlier this 12 months, Samsung dedicated to shopping for extra OLED panels in a deal with LG in an effort to present cheaper, bigger screens to clients. There might be two fashions out there with the LG-made panels – an 83-inch sized set referred to as the S91C, which can begin from €5,000, and a 77-inch S89C, priced at €3,500. This set can be out there within the US for $3,599.Although each fashions will use WOLED panels, they won’t function micro lens array (MLA) expertise, which is used within the LG G3 and is what gives additional brightness to a common WOLED panel. In phrases of options, each could have HDMI 2.1, Dolby Atmos and HDR 10+ help. They is not going to function Dolby Vision, which follows Samsung’s standard sample. We mentioned our ideas on these fashions not too long ago, feeling the S89C would trigger chaos in Samsung’s lineup as this mannequin quantity would solely be used for the 77-inch WOLED mannequin and never the 83-inch S90C, which additionally used a WOLED panel. Now the 83-inch has obtained a new mannequin quantity, the S91C, it begs the query: has this solved or difficult the mannequin quantity situation? Analysis: Samsung struggles with mannequin numbers It is smart that Samsung has given its two WOLED TVs completely different fashions. It’s given a larger mannequin quantity for a larger display screen (the 77-inch set is the S89C and the 83-inch is S91C) to attempt to assist differentiate the 2 units. However, when QD-OLED options in increasingly more of  the very best TVs, it appears confusing that Samsung has named one of the WOLED fashions the S91C, because it implies that this set has surpassed the Samsung S90C – a TV that we rated very extremely in our evaluations. As an instance of a extra logical mannequin lineup, Sony named one of its finest WOLED TVs the A90K, however named its QD-OLED mannequin (thought of as superior) the A95K. This simply exhibits to us what Sony believes is the hierarchy of its TVs. But Samsung has gone in opposition to this, with the 83-inch WOLED S91C utilizing a increased sequential determine to  the QD-OLED S90C. Samsung’s try to make the introduction of WOLED TVs into its lineup extra seamless is admirable however the S91C nonetheless causes confusion, ignoring the normal hierarchy of good to higher to finest TVs. Considering QD-OLED will bypass OLED as the very best OLED TV expertise, it appears odd that the Samsung S90C sits under a common WOLED TV, the S91C. You may additionally like
