Samsung 2023 Neo QLED TV Range is Bigger and Better
Bigger TVs are quickly becoming the norm, Samsung says the average consumer is opting for a 75-inch TV variant over the smaller 65-inch going forward and its 2023 Neo QLED TV range certainly drives this point home. Bright, humongous panels that come fitted with the latest tech and smart connectivity features to help deliver “a premium home entertainment experience” is what Samsung is promising this time around.
The addition of 8K along with some much-needed software upgrades make these TVs a compelling option. From high-end 8K TVs to 4K OLED, Samsung is offering a huge variety of panels that will meet your needs no matter what your budget may be.

Samsung’s Neo QLED TV Lineup at a Glance
The 2023 Neo QLED TV lineup comprises five new models, one 8K unit, while the rest support 4K resolution. All the newly released models take advantage of the company’s proprietary Quantum Mini LED technology, capable of powering up to 33 million pixels and delivering a billion colours. For a fully immersive viewing experience, the 2023 Samsung Neo QLED TVs are powered by an advanced Neural Quantum Processor that utilizes 14-bit processing and AI upscaling to automatically upgrade the content you are watching to either 4K or 8K resolution (depending on the model you opt for).
Samsung’s Neo QLED TV Lineup goes like this.
- Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV (QN900C) – from $7,549 AUD
- Samsung Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN90C) – from $2,319 AUD
- Samsung Neo QLED 4K Smart TV QN85C – from $3,149 AUD
- Samsung QLED 4K Smart TV Q70C – from $2,099 AUD
- Samsung QLED 4K Smart TV Q60C – from $1,729 AUD
Using the new Auto HDR Remastering, both the 4K and 8K TVs can automatically apply real-time, scene-by-scene HDR effects that help produce extraordinary contrast levels. Furthermore, the panels come fitted with Anti-Glare and Ultra Viewing Angle technology “that displays clear 8K or 4K quality content at virtually any angle or light, producing vivid colour across the screen.” But that’s just the tip of it. Here’s what each of the models in this year’s Samsung Neo QLED TV range brings to the table.
Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV (QN900C)
Fitted with the latest and greatest, the Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV (QN900C) is the flagship model in this year’s lineup. The TV boasts a super sleek, premium and elegant-looking Infinity design that’s almost bezel-less and can easily blend anywhere. It gets all its juice via the “ultra-powerful” Neural Quantum 8K Processor and Quantum Mini LED and features AI-based processing to upscale content to 8K resolution. The 8K panel supports 144Hz refresh rates and uses Quantum Matrix Technology Pro which “distinguishes a great many levels of light so things in dark areas are depicted clearly” to deliver the perfect contrast and colour experience.
However, only the 75-inch and 85-inch variants get the Pro-tech, with the 65-inch version featuring Neo Quantum HDR 8K+. In terms of audio and sound, the TV features four in-built up-firing speakers and two subwoofers that support Dolby Atmos, Object Tracking Sound Pro, Adaptive sound, and Q-Symphony. The Samsung QN900C has a Real Game Enhancer which eliminates any sort of lag or motion blurs as well as HDR 10+. Other built-in features include Xbox Game Pass, Game Bar, Ultrawide Game View, and Freesync Premium Pro. As with any top-end TV coming out in 2023, the Neo QLED 8K gets a Slim One Connect box that allows for a wireless connection, tucking away all the messy cables in favour of a clean look. The Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV (QN900C) is available in 85 inches priced at AUD $12,699, 75 inches priced at AUD $9,879, and 65-inch display sizes priced at AUD $7,549.
Samsung Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN90C)
Coming to the 4K segment, the Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN90C) is the most expensive 4K offering in Samsung’s 2023 Neo QLED TV lineup featuring the new 4K Neural Quantum processor. Instead of a sophisticated Infinity design, these 4K TVs feature a Neo Slim design, with relatively noticeable black bezels all around the display. The 4K Neural Quantum Processor ensures a top-notch 4K experience, while Neo Quantum HDR+ helps delivers stellar contrast and brightness. However, Neo Quantum HDR+, Wireless True Dolby Atmos and Wide Angle Viewing are present in models upwards of 55 inches only, with 43-inch and 50-inch versions having Neo Quantum HDR and OTS Lite (not True Dolby Atmos). Although all the displays in the series are HDR 10+ enabled.
For audio, you get two upward-firing speakers (instead of four) and two subwoofers with Dolby Atmos, Object Tracking Sound+ and Adaptive Sound+ and Q-Symphony. The TV includes an HDMI 2.0 port, making it capable of delivering 4K resolution at 120Hz in 55 inches or above models, while the 43-inch and 50-inch ones can clock in 4K at 144Hz. AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro is also here, which reduces screen tearing and lag. The Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN90C) comes in 85-inches priced at AUD $7,899, 75-inches priced at AUD $6,159, 65-inches AUD $4,649, 55-inches AUD: $3,489, 50-inches AUD $2,899 and 43-inches AUD $2,319.
Samsung Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN85C)
Samsung isn’t just targeting the high-end premium market with its new Neo TVs. The company is bringing the same 4K goodness and smart connect features to the mid-range segment with the QN85C. The TV is a trimmed-down version of the QN90C, carrying over most of the things from its pricier sibling. You get the same Neural Quantum 4K Processor, Neo Quantum HDR+ 144Hz display, AI upscaling and adaptive picture as the QN90C.
However, to keep things under budget, Samsung has cut down on a few things. The audio takes a minor hit, with this model getting the regular Object Tracking Sound support instead of the OTS+. But we aren’t sure how much of a real-world sound difference will that make. The rest remains the same. The Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN90C) comes in 85-inches priced at AUD $$6,999, 75-inches priced at AUD $5,199, 65-inches AUD $4,079 and 55-inches AUD $3,149.
Samsung QLED 4K Smart TV (Q60C)
If you are looking for some 4K fun but on a budget, the 2023 Samsung QLED Q60C might be up your alley. With a modest-looking AirSlim design and somewhat thick bezels, the Q60C is the least powerful of the lot, packing in a 4K Neural Quantum Lite processor. For accurate color reproduction and color volume enabling, the TV features Quantum Dot technology as well as HDR 10+. Since this is an entry-level TV, you miss out on AI upscaling, wide viewing angles and contrast enhancers.
The Q60C has no woofer, Dolby Atmos or Active Voice Amplifier and comes with a basic 2-channel stereo speaker setup. You do get Adaptive Sound Object Tracking Sound Lite here, but we don’t expect these to be incredible sounding. You also miss out on the 144Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync; however, you do have the ability to access Xbox Game Pass, Game Bar and all the smart connectivity features. Similar to the QN85C, the Neo QLED 4K Smart TV (QN60C) is also available in 85-inches priced at AUD $4,619, 75-inches priced at AUD $2,889, 65-inches AUD $2,189, 55-inches AUD $1,729.
