Samsung has posted to its U.S. web site pricing, feature sets and pre-orders for its 2022 step-down 8K Neo QLED QN800B series TVs.

The QN800B line features Samsung’s second-generation of Mini-LED full-array with local dimming backlighting system incorporating the company’s Neural Quantum Processor driving its upscaling for the set’s native 8K picture resolution.

It also continues to incorporate Samsung’s Neo QLED system leveraging quantum dot color enhancement with 100% color volume capability.

The series includes the 65- ($3,499.95), 75- ($4,699.95) and 85-inch ($6,499.95) screen sizes, which are expected to start shipping in mid-March.

QN800B, which is a step-down from the 2022 flagship QN900B 8K TV series, comes with an external One Connect box and four HDMI 2.1 ports supporting 4K/120 Hz high frame rate, Auto Low Latency Mode, Variable Refresh Rate, FreeSync, and ARC/e-ARC high-bandwidth audio.

The TVs support Apple AirPlay 2, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Samsung’s own Bixby voice control assistants.

In addition to supporting up 8K UHD resolution, the sets support high dynamic range (HDR) through the HDR10, HDR10+ Adaptive and HLG profiles.

Also featured is a Quantum HDR 32X system producing a wide range of colors and shades in HDR content.

The series also applies Samsung’s Anti-Reflection and Ultra Viewing Angle screen technologies that preserves color and contrast from a wide angle around the screen, while reducing on-screen reflections.

Advanced on-board audio includes a 4.2.2-channel 70-watt speaker package capable of reproducing 3D-like with OTS+ and Dolby Atmos built in to surround viewers in immersive sound. The series also includes Samsung’s Q-Symphony technology designed to integrate both the on-board TV sound package with supporting Samsung soundbar speakers, synchronized to produce more dynamic room-filling sound.
