Can Samsung 8K TV Eco Mode trick the energy efficiency problem?


In September last year, a new EU energy efficiency regulation shocked the entire 8K industry. The energy efficiency regulation sets the power consumption limit for 8K TVs (and microLED-based displays) so low that none of the 8K TVs currently on the market can meet, meaning the devices cannot be sold in the EU.


According to Forbes, in response to new regulations that go into effect on March 1, Samsung will turn on Eco mode by default for its 8K TVs. In this mode, the brightness and image quality of Samsung 8K TV will be greatly reduced, so that the power consumption will be controlled within the compliance range, and it will be successfully sold in the EU. Of course, users can change to normal brightness mode through some options.
