Q60A is the TV model of the year 2021. This TV model replaces the Q60T from 2020. In our article, we will look at and compare three 2021-2019 TV models to see which year model will be the best price-quality decision.
The Q60A is the youngest model in Samsung’s line of QLED TVs. It has quite a few screen diagonal sizes, ranging from 43 to 85 inches. Given that previously some sizes of TVs were not produced (such as TVs with a screen of 60 and 70 inches), we can assume that some TVs will get screens not made by Samsung, but made by other panels’ makers.

Samsung Q60A new features

Q60A is really the next model to replace Q60T. It’s a bit incorrect to compare it to the Q60R, since the 2019 Q60R TV came with a better screen at 120 fps. That’s why I think it’s much more correct to compare the Q60A to the Q60T, but not the Q60R.

Q60A TV got an updated operating system Tizen 6.0, which added new features such as Samsung Health, game console, Office 365. The main changes are refinements to the operating system. But the processor is cheaper than in other models of TVs QLED series.
It can be noted that Q60A will also be equipped with a Smart remote with solar cells. This will slightly reduce the use of batteries in the remote control.

Samsung Q60A price

In theory, the price of the Q60A is slightly higher than the Q60T. But if you look at the price of Q60T TVs, the price of a new 2021 TV will be similar to a 2020 TV.

Should you buy Samsung Q60A?

The Q60A is a new TV model and given the refinement of the operating system, the Q60A is preferable to the Q60T. If you are just buying a TV for watching TV shows, the best way is to compare the picture quality on the Q60A with other TV models.
