8K AI Upscaling is proprietary Samsung technology to produce picture and sound quality compatible with 8K, regardless of the original source quality or format. "We're thrilled to introduce the Q900R to consumers and are confident that they will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound on our new 8K-capable models". It will feature 8K-ready enhancements, including 8K resolution panel capable of 4,000-nit peak brightness, Quad-HDR 8K support, and 8K quantum processor. There is now no pricing or availability information available for neither LG's nor Samsung's 8K TV. The firm is yet to reveal the price and the availability details of the TV.

Flaunting the level of detail showcased in the new-launched TVs, Samsung says that the appliance features a resolution that is 16 times greater than full HD resolution and four times greater than 4K resolution. Whether a user is watching content through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or even mobile mirroring, the Quantum Processor 8K recognizes and upscales the content to appear in 8K quality. Additionally, the Q900R boasts enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control courtesy of its Direct Full Array Elite feature. Yesterday, Samsungs hometome rival LG announced the first 8K OLED TV for the consumer market. Brian Kwon, the president of LG Home Entertainment Company explains: "LG's first 8K OLED TV is the result of technological achievement and the next evolutionary step in display technology".
