About the Samsung QN65QN85A
Mini LEDs deliver a punchier picture
Mini LEDs deliver a punchier picture
In recent years, top-of-the-line LED TVs have used an advanced type of backlight called full-array with local dimming (FALD) to deliver great picture quality. Samsung's 2021 Neo QLEDs take this already sophisticated panel technology to the next level by using Mini LEDs that are about 40 times smaller than conventional LEDs. That gives the QN65QN85A a much slimmer panel and more striking picture than the Q80A, which is the FALD series right below it in this year's lineup.
Samsung pairs the QN85A's dense array of tiny LEDs with their Quantum Matrix technology to deliver incredibly precise light control for wide contrast and more realistic shadow detail. It can also reduce “blooming” — or those pesky halos you sometimes see around bright objects on dark backgrounds.
Lifelike color and detail
Samsung's QLED sets are known for bright, vivid colors that pop off the screen, even in the brightest of rooms. HDR content is going to look great, but you don't need a premium signal to enjoy excellent picture quality.
The QN85A's Neo Quantum Processor 4K uses Artificial Intelligence to optimize your experience for all kinds of sources. Content is analyzed scene by scene against its built-in database of images to create a sharper picture with realistic texture and detail.
Gaming features galore
The QN85A has a lot under the hood that will make it a great partner for your console or PC, including 4K at 120Hz. It also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) via AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro for smooth, tear-free graphics and stunning HDR detail.
Game Mode is automatically activated thanks to ALLM support to reduce input lag for lightning fast response time. You can also make real-time adjustments to your settings using the dedicated pop-up menu called Game Bar.
Smart control options
Samsung's already excellent remote got an eco-friendly upgrade this year. The new SolarCell Remote™ has a built-in solar cell that is sensitive enough to keep the battery charged using the basic indoor lights in your home. This simple change could keep millions of batteries out of the landfill and save you a trip to the store.
Like prior Samsung remotes, this version makes it easy to control all your connected devices. It also has a button to activate your choice of included voice assistants: Bixby, Google, or Alexa.
