Samsung announces S95C and S90C OLED TV models, Premiere 8K projector

Samsung has announced its next generation of QD-OLED TVs for 2023, and they will come in two variants and three sizes using Samsung’s next-gen OLED panel.

The 2023 lineup includes the more affordable S95C and S90C and will be the successor to last year’s S95B, which received excellent response from reviewers and customers. The new models feature 55-inch and 65-inch sizes as before, but Samsung will now also introduce a new 77-inch size, which is becoming increasingly popular with buyers.

Both models feature Samsung Display’s next-generation quantum dot OLED panel, which was also seen on the Odyssey OLED G9 launched yesterday. This new panel has a claimed maximum brightness of 2,000 nits, although that’s only achievable in a 3% window, with a traditional 10% window test hitting 1,500 nits. Samsung panels also use a standard RGB subpixel layout instead of the WRGB layout used by LG panels, which can lead to color saturation issues and round black artifacts. Despite the increase in brightness, Samsung still claims reduced power consumption to improve panel efficiency.

Between the S95C and the S90C, the main difference is in the design. The S95C has a slimmer design thanks to Samsung’s One Connect Box, while the S90C has a bigger bulge on the back thanks to all the built-in connectors.

Both types of TVs support a 144Hz refresh rate and the Samsung Gaming Hub feature. They are also the first OLED TVs to be certified with AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro for variable refresh rates and in-game HDR.

Along with QD-OLED models, Samsung also announced 8K and 4K Neo QLED LCD models with micro LED backlights and Samsung’s new Neural Quantum Processor with 14-bit processing and AI upscaling. There are also new Micro LED models for 2023, ranging in size from 50 inches to 140 inches.

The company also announced an 8K variant of its ultra-short-throw laser projector, the Premiere 8K, which can project a 150-inch image. The Freestyle mini projector also gets an updated model for 2023, with a new Smart EDGE blending feature that lets you overlay two Freestyle projectors to create a 21:9 widescreen image without manually aligning them. This model will also include the Samsung Gaming Hub.

All pricing and availability information will be revealed at a later date.
