In the recent news, Sony has announced the world’s first quantum dot OLED TVs for consumers, kicking off its 2022 lineup with a high standard. The corporation’s existing OLED TV sets employ LG Display panels, adjusted with Sony’s processing technology.
Samsung Was Also Rumored to Launch Quantum Dot OLED TVs
However, the upcoming flagship Bravia XR A95K TV will enclose a Samsung Display-manufactured QD-OLED panel. The TV will come in 65- and 55-inch sizes, both with 4K resolution. Samsung Electronics was also rumored to unveil quantum dot OLED TVs at CES 2022. However, those rumors were confirmed to be groundless, leaving Sony in the limelight.

Quantum dot OLED TVs have been in development at Samsung Display for years and the latest tech could become a middle step between classic OLED and Samsung’s own MicroLED displays. QD-OLED blends the best features of OLED such as indefinite contrast and flawless blacks with the advantages of quantum dot LED TVs such as enhanced brightness and more striking color reproduction at higher brightness.
Sony Will Continue to Source Display Panels from LG Display
Moreover, Sony will continue to source display panels from LG Display for its other quantum dot OLED TVs models for 2022 — the A90K and A80K. Aside from the one-of-a-kind panel, the A95K will come with a striking stand that can put the TV either in a front or a back position. The tricked-out stand can also be elevated to place a soundbar without blocking the view.
The A95K will come with four HDMI inputs — two of them being full HDMI 2.1. All of the firm’s most recent quantum dot OLED TVs will support 4K gaming at 120Hz refresh rates, auto HDR tone mapping when connected to a PlayStation 5, and auto low latency mode. The TVs will also have a varying refresh rate out of the box instead of a software update like previous models.
