Samsung's 4K QLED 2020 TV lineup is now available for purchase in various markets, but while the official spec sheet for these models is fairly detailed, the company failed to specify their exact HDMI capabilities. In other words, it's unclear whether Samsung's 4K QLED 2020 TV series has HDMI 2.1 capabilities. Or at least, it was unclear until recently when Samsung confirmed to FlatspanelHD that its 4K 2020 TV lineup does benefit from HDMI 2.1.

HDMI 2.1 on Samsung's 2020 4K QLED TVs with a caveat

According to the online publication citing Samsung, all of the company's 4K QLED 2020 TVs, including the Q60T, Q70T, Q80T, Q90T, and Q95T have HDMI 2.1 capabilities, but there's a caveat. Although all these models have a total of four HDMI outputs (save for the Q60T), only one of these ports follows the 2.1 specifications.

The good news is that the included HDMI 2.1 port will allow customers to benefit from features such as 4K gaming at 120Hz (via Fixed Rate Link – FRL) when connecting upcoming consoles such as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

However, it's also worth noting that the HDMI 2.1 port is not used at its full potential on all of these models. According to the source, 4K 120Hz via FRL is not available on the Q60T and the smaller 49-inch Q80T model.

Meanwhile, Samsung's 8K QLED TV models including the Q800T, Q900TS, and Q950TS all support HDMI 2.1 and 4K 120Hz FRL.
