I want to discuss the differences between Samsung’s 2022 and 2023 OLED TVs. Samsung has finished building a line of large OLED displays and has begun production of 77-inch panels. The first OLED TV for 2023 will be the 77S95C; the full model name for the U.S. and Canadian markets is QN77S95CAFXZA.

Features of the 77S95C model.

I won’t rehash the releases but talk about what a buyer of such a TV might be concerned about. The TV consists of a two-piece screen and a separate box (one connect) that houses the brains of the TV. Of course, the company promotes this solution as being very practical because the thickness of the TV becomes very small. The control box is placed on a stand on the back of the TV. For me, for example, it doesn’t matter how thin the TV is.
This layout makes it more challenging to mount the TV on the wall; you must figure out how to attach the One Connect. For wall mounting, a Vesa 400×400 type mount is used.

But, of course, this solution dramatically minimizes future repair problems. There is no need to drag the entire TV to the service center; if the One connects unit breaks, it can be easily replaced.

S95C TV brightness

Increased brightness, Samsung claims that the screen 77-inch TV is 30% brighter than the 2022 models. Many websites claim that the TV’s peak brightness is 2,000, but I’m skeptical of such claims. Who doesn’t know peak brightness is when your TV shows a white square and brightness and contrast are maximum. You will never watch TV in this mode. It would be interesting to know the typical brightness, but that parameter is not listed.

The second claim, which causes some confusion, is that the TV screen becomes brighter because quantum dots enhance brightness. Quantum dots are ultrapure materials that, depending on their composition, allow a specific color (blue, red, or green) to pass through. Such material transmits light almost without distortion or attenuation. Based on the above, OLEDs have a light-correcting layer of new materials called quantum dot materials. But they can’t increase brightness. Okay, that’s marketing, but what about without it?

Processor in a Samsung S95C TV

Of course, there is no neuro quantum processor in a TV; a regular processor adapted for TVs supports parallel computing. Some cell phones have more powerful processors than televisions, but no one calls them neuro quantum processors.

Historically, Korean TV manufacturers rarely reveal the processor model in TVs. Although usually, they are very standard processors made by MediaTek. After all, the most important thing for a TV is to provide video stream processing for displaying on the screen without delays or stops. There are no special requirements for the TV processor.

If you look at the detailed technical specifications, there is virtually no difference between the TV models. Of course, there is one significant improvement, which is the increase in the brightness of the TV. This is very good because OLED initially suffered from low brightness. It would be perfect if Samsung could solve this problem and bring OLED brightness up to QLED brightness. Otherwise, we can note the new version of the Tizen OS in 2023 – version 7.0. The rest of the technical specifications are virtually unchanged.
