S95C is Samsung’s first OLED TV with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certification
The Samsung S95C, which is the company’s latest OLED TV, uses a QD-OLED panel from Samsung Display that was announced yesterday. It features a 4K QD-OLED screen with up to a 144Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, and up to 2,000 nits peak brightness. The South Korean firm is using the new HyperEfficient EL material (applied to the blue light emitting layer) and IntelliSense AI to improve the panel’s brightness. For the first time, the company’s QD-OLED TV features AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro certification for tear-free gaming via PCs or gaming consoles.
The new version of the Tizen OS brings improved software features to the S95C.

Other software features include AI Sound Remastering, Alexa, Bixby, Dolby Atmos, Object Sound Tracking+, Q-Symphony (2023 version), and Samsung Health. All new Samsung smart TVs feature a built-in controller for Matter, SmartThings, and ZigBee. The 3D Map View shows all smart devices in your home in a neat map view. The TV is extremely slim, at 11mm (top to bottom).
