Samsung delayed in QD-OLED isn't official. Its just a rumor. There's been many delays and starts over the past 6 months. Let see what samsung displays shows at CES
In 2020, a whole QLED range arrives on the French market, with the usual Hisense approach: making premium affordable. From 50 '' to 65 '', the U8QF and U7QF series are ultra-complete televisions: Full LED without edge, Local Dimming up to 180 zones, peaks of brightness of 1000 nits and integration of the latest HDR standards Dolby Vision and HDR10 + . In addition to Dolby Atmos compatibility, the U8QF series includes a JBL soundbar for more powerful sound.
The market is wide open for them to come in and eat Samsung’s lunch with Sammy likely to be into its third year running with the same core technology (trying to cover it up with “8K”). Hopefully HiSense or TCL decide they want those millions.Never trust Hisense when it comes to the EU product range. Never.
Should be a no brainer on Sonys side. PS5 will support HDMI 2.1I'm not yet convinced HDMI 2.1 will appear this year. LG could again be the lone HDMI 2.1 screen provider (with some questions remaining over support for true 48 Gbps). None of the the advance press releases I have seen have mentioned HDMI 2.1 apart from the LG 8K one. Tellingly the LG 2020 soundbar press release only mentions eARC and not HDMI 2.1 (which would be needed for 48 Gbps pass-through). Would be happy to be proved wrong (a 2020 Pansonic OLED with Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and HDMI 2.1 would be great) and not long to wait now for the answer.
