About the Samsung QN65QN90A
A big leap forward for backlighting
A big leap forward for backlighting
In the past few years, the very best LED TVs have used an advanced type of backlight called full-array with local dimming (FALD). Samsung's 2021 Neo QLEDs take this already sophisticated panel technology to another level by using Mini LEDs that are about 40 times smaller than conventional LEDs. That means they can pack a lot more of them in, giving the QN65QN90A a way punchier picture than its predecessors.
Samsung pairs this 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.
Rich 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 stunning, but you don't need a premium signal to enjoy excellent picture quality.
The QN90A'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.
This set also includes Samsung's Ultra Viewing Angle film layer that spreads out the backlight's illumination more evenly, so you have a great view no matter where you sit.
The QN90A has robust gaming features, including a Game Bar and Super Ultrawide GameView.
Not everyone has room for a whole sound system, so it's nice to see Samsung put some focus on audio quality. The QN90A has a 4.2.2-channel speaker system built into its frame. When paired with their innovative AI-based Object Tracking Sound+, you get directional sound that follows the action on the screen.
And if you connect it to certain Samsung sound bars, you can engage the Q-Symphony feature. This synchronizes the TV's speakers with the sound bar to create an even fuller soundstage.
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.
Gaming features galore
The QN90A 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.
