Sitting at the top of the QLED tree are the Q9F and Q8F, both are flat screen TVs and available in sizes from 55 - 88-inches, but more importantly they are the only two models to receive Direct Full Array (DFA) technology. It can display news, weather and the time, too. "Further differentiating Samsung's unique TV design, the new lineup also features Ambient Mode, a futuristic solution that allows the TV to blend into the home environment like never before".

The QLED TVs rely on what the company calls its One Invisible Connection, which now integrates the power supply alongside all of the other ports. This marks the first singular cable in the TV industry that can transmit AV high capacity data at the speed of light while also transmitting power. This is not a game changing feature, but it's nice to see Samsung thinking outside the box. Effortless Login uses the new SmartThings app** to drastically reduce the time it takes to set up a new TV.

QLED TVs actually use less electricity because they don't require a backlight system. The new TVs also come with support for Samsung's Bixby assistant, as well as energy-saving features that can help turn off the TV if it doesn't sense a smartphone or a human nearby.

The Q9 and Q8 both come with full-array local dimming; with 9 having more zones, but Samsung does not specify how many are in each. Their release on the company's home turf is slated for mid-April.

HW-N950: With front-firing, up-firing and new side-firing speakers, the HW-N950 Dolby AtmosĀ® soundbar creates an extraordinary cinematic experience that delivers 7.1.4 surround sound.

It's created to work for mounted TVs when users aren't watching a show or movie. The list of features that can be controlled by voice commands via Bixby will continue to expand.

Samsung Creates a TV That Blends Into Your Wall

In response to rising consumer demand, Samsung is reinforcing its commitment to ultra-large screen televisions. As Dave Das, senior vice president and general manager of consumer electronics product marketing for Samsung Electronics America, revealed, over 50 percent of the TVs sold by Samsung are 65-inches or larger.

The company also highlighted its modular design - which Samsung first touted this year at CES 2018 with The Wall and available finally later this year -which means TVs can be shaped in nearly any dimension needed, with each component, or screen, powered through micro LED technology.

The TVs are also packed with a few other nifty features, such as thin cables.

Most people reportedly noticed that the South Korean company's booth lacked mid-range models for consumer displays during CES 2018. It still gets HDR10+ and a 4K resolution, however.

Samsung's 2018 home entertainment line will be available in stores beginning March 2018. The Q7 series will be available in 55 to 75-inch variants, while the Q6F (available in 49, 55, 65, 75 and 82-inch variants) is a brand new model for this year, which on paper at least appears to be an entry-level model.
