Samsung Electronics is ready to introduce a new generation of smart TVs for 2021. The new series is known as Neo QLED and two brand-new Neo QLED smart TV models labeled QN900A and QN90A have already been announced ahead of CES 2021. They combine a new light source – Quantum Mini LED – with a new Neo Quantum picture processor that was optimized specifically for Neo QLED.

The QN900A is an 8K smart TV boasting an Infinity One design with almost no bezels. The QN90A is a 4K model, and both take advantage of features such as Samsung Health, Super Ultrawide GameView, and Google Duo.

Quantum Mini LED technology features incredibly thin micro layers filled with LEDs that are one-fortieth the height of conventional LEDs. The technology allows for ultra-fine control of the LEDs and prevents blooming.
