Samsung announced today that its Neo QLED and QLED TVs for this year will feature new gaming capabilities. The company's new TV lineup was introduced earlier this month along with its other premium displays.
The Neo QLED models, in particular, feature Super Ultrawide GameView that's designed to let you choose between the 21:9 or 32:9 aspect ratio when playing a game. This variable aspect ratio is also available on Samsung's new Q70A TV and later models.
These TVs also include a Game Bar where you can check input lag or connect a headset. Samsung promised an immersive audio experience, thanks to the Game Object Tracking Sound feature that enables its QLED TVs "to project audio around the room corresponding with onscreen action" using artificial intelligence.
In addition, the Neo QLED and QLED TVs boast a 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and lag time less than 5.8ms. And just like LG's new range of monitors for gamers and creators announced at CES 2021, Samsung's 50-inch Q90A and other QLED TVs with screen sizes 55 inches and larger feature AMD's FreeSync Premium Pro technology for a "true HDR console" experience.
There's no word on when these TV models will be released or how much customers will have to shell out. That said, Younghun Choi, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung, vowed that the new enhancements will "unlock the full power of next-gen gaming" on the premium TVs.
