Buying a TV is one of the greatest pleasures that tech can bring, and it’s a decision that is usually taken only once every five years. The good news is that there has genuinely never been a better time to go television shopping, as technologies such as HDR, 4K and QLED have now scaled eye-boggling peaks of quality.
Samsung’s flagship Q60R 4K QLED televisions help transform non-4K content into 4K, give personalised suggestions of what to watch next, and are now available – for the first time ever – from our friends at AO.com.
Q60R provides over a billion shades of colour for an immersive viewing experience, with a 4K picture honed to perfection with the latest Quantum HDR for bright peaks and pitch-dark blacks. It’s a cinematic experience, with 100% Colour Volume meaning that you watch the scene the way the director intended for it to be seen. As well as incredibly rich colour, there's massive contrast levels and the deepest blacks, with Quantum HDR. Screens range in size from 43 inches to a massive 82 inches.
The brilliance of Samsung’s image mastery means HD material is upscaled to 4K picture quality. Relax with a TV that adapts to give you the very best sound and picture with the Q60R’s Quantum Processor 4K feature built in.
What is QLED?
The actual science of QLED is rather complex, but you don’t need a physics doctorate to enjoy its results. QLED offers a wide colour gamut with over 1 billion colours, a wide viewing angle – so every seat in your home is a great seat – and Q HDR for incredible detail, scene after scene. Supreme Motion lets you experience motion free from judder or unnatural effects.
Samsung even offers a 10-year Screen Burn Warranty – that’s now confident they are that the Q60R will serve up picture perfection for years, indeed decades, to come.
Smarter viewing with Samsung
With Q60R you have the ability to take back control and pause live TV. Naturally, all the latest movie streaming and TV catch-up services are built in – including, Apple TV, NOW TV and BT Sport apps that are exclusive to Samsung. There's also Samsung’s own TV Plus, which gives instant access to the latest 4K UHD movies and content for the whole family. That's how Q60R is able to provide the largest collection of 4K content.
The millions of hours of TV and movies on offer means you’ll be grateful for another talent of the Quantum Processor 4K: your TV can actually recommend what to watch next, with suggestions personalised to your tastes and viewing history.
The Universal Guide makes it easy to find great content. Spend less time searching and more time watching with tailored recommendations, and discover your next favourite movie or TV series, across multiple terrestrial and streaming services.
More incredible Q60R features
There’s a list as long as your arm of compelling reasons to buy a Q60R, but here are some of the highlights…
Turn your TV into a digital canvas or have it magically blend into its surroundings with Ambient Mode*. When not being watched actively, the Q60R can revert to displaying useful information, your photos or art. It can even blend, chameleon-like, into the surroundings by scanning the wall behind it and mimicking that on screen.
Game Enhancer gives ultra-fast response time for gaming, keeping you one step ahead of the competition.
Samsung’s Bixby Voice Assistant is on hand so you can control your TV and search for content using spoken commands. It also allows control of all your compatible smart devices and home appliances. Run the whole house, from your sofa.
Adaptive Sound buffs and polishes audio so it’s perfected for what you’re watching and where you’re watching it.
Simply brilliant design: Samsung’s Onebox means there’s no more messy cables lurking behind and around the Q60R, while its slim design looks elegant from any angle.
Despite all the clever stuff inside, the Q60R is a breeze to setup, too. Just log in to all your accounts via your smartphone, with no potentially tricky on-screen keyboards to negotiate with a compatible phone and the SmartThings app.
*Some features of Ambient Mode require a compatible Android or iOS phone and sufficient space around the TV to operate; it will have varying results on complex wall designs, patterns, and/or unusual colours.
