Samsung Takes 2018 4K Ultra HD QLED Video Gaming On Tour
Curious about which premium 4K Ultra HD television technology is better for your video gaming skills this year — OLED or QLED?
Samsung Electronics America is taking its newest 4K Ultra HD QLED televisions on tour of select U.S. cities this summer to give you a demo of how the latest developments in full-array with local dimming LED back lighting and quantum-dot contrast and color enhancement have greatly improved what it has to offer worthy competitors.

Samsung said Monday that it is providing “an experiential QLED TV tour” that will be visiting key U.S. cities in coming weeks, after recently kicking off at the E3 Expo video gaming convention in Los Angeles. As part of the tour, gaming enthusiasts will get an in-depth opportunity to experience and compete with Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One X via one of Samsung’s fast, clear and bright 2018 QLED TVs.
Moving on from Los Angeles, Samsung is taking the tour to San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas and Houston. The demo is taking place inside a “QLED semi-truck,” which affords enough space for visitors to participate in the QLED Cup activation.
Participants have the opportunity to compete in Samsung’s Forza Motorsport 7 competition for a chance to win premium prizes from Samsung and Xbox, Samsung said.
The truck is equipped with custom-built gaming pods and QLED TVs, on which visitors can compete with participants racing for the fastest winning time.
Samsung said the point of the demo is to underscore its commitment to developing TVs with premier gaming capabilities. Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs feature AMD’s Radeon FreeSync technology, which makes “Samsung the first TV manufacturer to support industry-leading Radeon FreeSync adaptive refresh technology, for stutter-free gaming,” the company said.
Samsung further enhances this with its Game Mode that enables 2018 Samsung 4K Ultra HDTVs “to deliver stunning gaming images,” the company said.
