The Samsung QE55Q950RBTXXU 55 inch QLED 8K HDR Smart Television was their smallest set at the resolution when released.

Those wanting to experience the mind-blowing 4320p resolution, with over 33 million pixels at work, at a more compact size can now do so.

That amounts to nearly 33.2 mega-pixels, which are incredibly detailed yet individually indistinguishable to the human eye.

The harmony between the contrast, colour and high dynamic range sources ensure that they become almost invisible to sight.

Seeing is believing and images that are perfectly-lit, exceptionally bright, wonderfully coloured and realistically defined are captivating.

Clarity is unparalleled in 8K with brightness levels that cannot be reached by anything less, for home entertainment that is simply stunning.

The Direct Full Array 16X backlighting system positions a screen-sized amount of LEDs straight behind the picture, which shine through the liquid crystal display.

A huge number of concentrated LED areas enable Ultimate 8K Dimming, creating 480 local zones that make for amazingly precise illumination.

This can reach up to 4,000 nits of brightness, so that every colour holds up in ambient light and enables high dynamic range to widen the gamut.

The Ultra Wide Viewing Angle and Ultra Black Elite functions ensure picture precision in every corner of a room, with no glare or reflection.

There's 100 per cent colour volume, a match for the movie makers in the DCI-P3 digital projection scene, with over a billion to choose from.

The dynamic metadata produced is matched to millions of formulas to create the finest texture, definition and detail possible.

HDR 4000 tailors this for subtle and true-to-life reproduction, reaching standards met by most film studios, with every frame optimised to perfection.

There's little in the way of native 8K footage, but the Quantum Processor chip is on board for upscaling of lower definition picture sources.

The processor creates missing pixels as is necessary and meshes them with the real ones, refining and sharpening footage so it has the density and depth of the 8K standard.

Supreme Motion technology eliminates any judder from fast-moving sequences, so the action remains free-flowing and crystal clear.

The surround sound system is comprised of a powerful subwoofer, two twitter and a pair of main speakers, with Dolby Audio compatibility.

The artificial intelligence contained in the Quantum Processor makes it presence felt in all areas of picture and sound handling, along with the smart platform.

The upscaling should be of great interest to gamers, who can play in 8K despite the specification limits of their console, with low input lags.

Samsung's Universal Guide uses the AI to deploy machine learning of personal preferences and user trends, to gather content which may be of interest.

A Quantum Dot Display uses small conducting nanocrystals just nanometres in width. When these nanocrystals are exposed to light they emit different colours dependant on their size. A result of using nanocrystals compared to a traditional LED display is they produce far more vibrant and brighter colours giving the display a much richer picture.
