Samsung announced its latest QD-OLED TV, the Samsung S95C, at CES 2023, but we still don't know its release date and price and other information. However, we can infer from the release time of its predecessor, the S95B, that this new model may also be released in the spring or early summer of this year.

Samsung S95C TV Review: Picture Quality​

Since the release of Samsung's first QD-OLED TV S95B in 2022, the new panel has been attracting consumers' attention with its impressive picture performance.

OLED panels have always been the first choice for many users when choosing a TV with excellent picture quality, and the QD-OLED made by Samsung combines quantum dot technology with OLED technology, so it can combine the advantages of both to provide even better picture performance.

As you may already know, the pixels of an OLED are divided into three sub-pixels: blue, red, and green, which combine to produce white light. Due to its self-illumination property, each pixel has its own light source without affecting each other, so bright pixels and black pixels can be displayed separately, providing nearly infinite contrast. However, because the panel's pixels are limited by the energy absorption of its color filter, it has a limited peak brightness.

To address these shortcomings, QD-OLED panels were created. Quantum dots do not lose light energy when performing color conversion as they do when passing through a filter, thus enabling a brighter screen than a regular OLED TV.

According to Samsung Display, the new QD-OLED TV in 2023 will be able to reach a peak brightness of more than 2,000 nits, which is promising. It will also compete with new OLED models from other brands, such as the LG G3 (Check LG G3 TV Review), which is also making an appearance at CES 2023. The S95C is equipped with Samsung's Neural Quantum Processor 4K, which improves the content you watch and optimizes the quality of the image.

Compared to last year's S95B, this year's QD-OLED has a thinner panel and offers the One Connect Box for neater device connectivity management. As a result, it will not disappoint you with its appearance. The slim panel can sit flush with the wall when wall-mounted, and of course, you can use the stand to place it on a tabletop, and it blends in nicely with a variety of home environments.
