Best Samsung TV: our top QLED picks for 2021

If you’re on the hunt for the best Samsung TV of 2021, this guide is for you. Samsung is one of the biggest tech companies in the world, with its massive size allowing it to come out with a huge range of smartphones, home appliances, and (of course) new TVs every year – many of which also show up on our best TV of 2021 list.

We’ve seen several new Samsung TVs this year, with the Samsung Neo QN900 8K QLED TV flagship leading Samsung’s Mini LED overhaul for this year.

We’ve also seen upgrades to several of its most popular models too. Samsung’s The Frame TV now includes a tripod TV stand for those who don’t want to wall-mount their TVs – as well as a renewed push into Micro LED displays, with sizes available in 76-inch, 88-inch, 99-inch, and 110-inch sizes.

On top of that Samsung has just introduced a new outdoor TV called The Terrace. While we haven’t spent enough time with it to give it a full review yet, it could well earn a place on this list down the line.

We understand that’s a lot to take in, though, so our aim here is to help you find which of the best Samsung screens of 2021 fits your preferences and is within your budget. As you can expect, most of the screens below will be quite pricey as they’re the best of the best. If your budget won’t stretch this far, that's okay, as plenty of Samsung’s 2020 and 2019 TVs are still fantastic and you can also check out our roundup of the best 4K TV deals available today.

Below you’ll find our selection of the best Samsung TVs available, along with a run-down of the Samsung brand and how to tell their TV product names apart – this isn’t as easy as it sounds. Bear in mind that only a few models will feature the Samsung OneConnect box, and it's worth checking to see if the cabling solution is included if it's something you're after. 

Best Samsung TVs

1. Best Samsung 4K TV: Samsung QN95A Neo QLED

The arrival of Mini LED elevates Samsung to new heights

Specifications

Screen size: 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel technology: Neo QLED

Smart TV: Tizen

HDR: HDR10, HLG, HDR10+

Reasons to buy

+Stellar picture quality+Impressive sound system

Reasons to avoid

-No Dolby Vision or Atmos-Freeview Play would be nice

The Samsung QN95A is the company’s new flagship Neo QLED 4K TV for 2021, and the first to embrace a Mini LED backlight. Not to be confused with Micro LED, which is a completely different self-emissive display technology, Mini LED uses a newly-developed backlight that’s much smaller and more efficient, resulting in a significant increase in dimmable zones and thinner panels.

The results speak for themselves, with superb SDR and HDR images that benefit from deep blacks and brighter highlights, all of which are delivered without blooming or loss of shadow detail. The inclusion of quantum dot technology delivers saturated and nuanced colours, too.

Unlike last year, Samsung is not short-changing its 4K line-up in an effort to push sales of the 8K ranges. So the QN95A boasts an impressive set of features, which is headlined by a well-designed and comprehensive smart platform that includes every major streaming app. There’s also a host of cutting-edge gaming features that’ll please next-gen console owners.

The QN95A doesn’t just look good, it also sounds fantastic thanks to Object Tracking Sound Plus (OTS+), which somehow manages to cram a powerful 4.2.2-channel sound system into the TV’s ultra-slim chassis. This is another triumph of industrial design from Samsung, with a minimalist but elegant shape, solid metal stand, and nearly bezel-less screen.

2. Best Samsung TV for style: Samsung The Frame

A fashion-first QLED TV

Specifications

Screen size: 32-inch, 40-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel technology: QLED

Smart TV: Tizen

HDR: HDR10, HLG, HDR10+

Reasons to buy

+Beautifully crafted+Art Mode

Reasons to avoid

-Color issues-Low brightness

Samsung The Frame (2020) is the most accomplished iteration of Samsung's painting-inspired television we've seen so far. With a bold metal casing, customizable frames, and an Art Mode function that displays classic artworks and photographs, this is the closest any television gets to looking like an actual painting – and when it's wall-mounted your guests really might not tell the difference.

With an Ambient Mode offering more dynamic screensavers, clock faces, and weather or news updates, there's plenty of customization for how much attention you want your Frame TV to get when not in use. The QLED panel and Quantum Processor 4K upgrade doesn't go amiss either, with predictably above-par upscaling and an impactful picture – even if The Frame's brightness is surprisingly dim for a QLED television, and skin tones can occasionally seem a bit off.

But if you want a television that really puts appearances first, and will blend in seamlessly with the decor throughout the day – with a OneConnect box cabling solution to keep things tidy – Samsung The Frame (2020) is an excellent choice for your home.

Keep an eye out for the 2021 iteration, of course, which is even slimmer and comes with far more options for customization.

3. Best Samsung TV on a budget: Samsung TU8000

The TU8000 looks good and is a great choice for gamers

Specifications

Screen size: 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch, 85-inch

Resolution: 4K

Panel technology: QLED

Smart TV: Tizen

HDR: HDR10, HLG, HDR10+

Reasons to buy

+Low input lag! +Solid motion handling

Reasons to avoid

-Narrow viewing angles-Lacks brightness

If your living room – and budget – can't handle one of the best 65-inch TVs, take a look at the truly spectacular TU8000 Series. You'll get an incredibly low input lag (just 9.7ms) as well as a motion handling technology to keep the action looking consistently smooth. What else could you ask for?

You're not getting all of the gaming technologies of some other sets in this list, as HDMI 2.1, VRR (variable refresh rate), or a 120Hz panel – but for the everyday gamer, this is a set that gets the basics very right.

You will need to watch out for the narrow viewing angles: content looks best straight on, with color draining from the sides, so it might not be the best choice for four-party Switch game sessions. On the whole, though, this is a solid choice. 

If you're in the US, you might still be able to find 2019's RU8000 – increasingly hard these days – which does offer up to 120Hz refresh rate (for 50-inch sizes and above) as well as VRR, and might be worth picking up on the cheap.

Samsung TV model numbers explained 2021: What you need to know about Samsung’s 8K QLED, 4K QLED and LED TVs

Samsung may be one of the most successful TV manufacturers in the world, but it doesn’t make choosing one of its TVs easy. The South Korean firm offers a wide range of different TVs, labelling all its models with elongated and seemingly randomised product codes that can stump even the most tech-savvy of consumers. Compared to catchy product names like Samsung Galaxy S20 and Samsung Galaxy Book S, Samsung UE65RU7470UXXU doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.

Samsung typically announces its upcoming flagship TVs at the annual CES conference in Las Vegas. It then takes a few months for these to actually appear in UK shops, with March to May being the usual launch window. At Expert Reviews, we’re always reviewing the latest Samsung TVs as soon as they become available, so we’ve got plenty of experience in decoding all these bewildering model names. Below, we breakdown each of Samsung’s current TV ranges to help you make the right buying choice.

News: Everything you need to know about Samsung's 2021 TV line-up

Samsung has exploded into 2021 with a long line-up of 4K-capable televisions that offer top-tech for movie, sports, and gaming enthusiasts alike. Over a dozen will roll out over the rest of the year, offering 8K and 4K Neo QLEDs, Ultra HD QLEDs, LCDs, plus new iterations of The Wall and The Frame.

Samsung TVs 2021: The tech

So, what’s new? First comes Samsung’s Neo Quantum Processor, which you’ll find running the show in all models with an ‘N’ in their designation. Delivering superior dimming and power direction to enhance brightness, an integrated light sensor also works to adjust images according to ambient light. The new processor also uses ‘Multi-Intelligence Deep Learning’ to upscale images specific to the content played.

Also of note is the far wider inclusion of OTS (Object-Tracking Sound) where the audio follows moving objects on the screen to create a surround sound effect. For next-gen gamers, the Samsung 2021 range has your back since all models from the Q70A and up support 4K at 120Hz, VRR (Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro) and ALLM.

This brings us to Samsung’s microLED tech, finally available to mere mortals. Maybe. Akin to OLED in that it also uses self-emissive pixels to deliver incredible contrast, microLED excels OLED in that it can also ramp up the brightness to (according to Samsung) some 2000 nits.

Samsung TVs 2021: The models

This year’s micoLED effort comes in the shape of Samsung’s reimagined The Wall. Initially available in 88, 99, 110-inch versions for 2021, a 76-inch option has just been announced. However, it’s so expensive that the price is unlisted and you need to arrange a call with Samsung to discuss the possibility of buying one. Joining The Wall is the latest take on Samsung’s super-slim The Frame. Now available in 32, 43, 75-inch screen sizes, this is 4K QLED quality TV given the art gallery treatment.

Away from the specialities, we head into Samsung’s MiniLED Neo QLED line-up, starting with a threesome of 8K options. Topping the trio here is the QN900A (‘N’ denoting Neo, ‘A’ denoting 2021). Available in 65, 75 and 85-inch sizes, this king of 8K is blessed with an edge-to-edge Infinity Screen and all the tech mentioned above. Will it be pricey? Yes. The 65-inch model is £6000, the 85-inch £11,999!

Beneath these in the UHD hierarchy sits a quartet of MiniLED 4K Neo QLEDs headed-up by the QN95A. Boasting all the technological refinements of their 8K siblings and offered in a range of sizes dependent on model. Moving out of the realms of MiniLED and dropping the ‘Neo’ in the name, the Q60A, Q70A and Q80A are top-end 4K QLEDs promising class-leading image quality, each with next-gen gaming support and OTS (or OTS Lite) sound systems.

Finally, we come to Samsung’s latest LCDs. Little is known so far, particularly when it comes to pricing, however, they are said to offer a simulated 4K at 120Hz experience from a 60Hz panel using Samsung’s Motion Xcelerator Turbo tech. Each also offers OTS… and that’s it on the fact side for now.

Naturally, we’ll keep you updated as and when we hear more from Seoul, so stay tuned. Below is a complete list of Samsung's 2021 lineup, complete with buying links and pricing.

Samsung TV model numbers explained: Samsung QLED TVs

QLED is Samsung’s premium HDR 4K and 8K TV range, with models ranging in price from around £599 to an incredible £12,000. QLED, which stands for Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Diode, is a variant of LCD LED-lit TV and uses “an advanced and highly durable quantum dot layer” coupled with a “special blue LED” to achieve a high level of brightness and a large colour palette. Although QLED is not proprietary technology, Samsung is largely responsible for popularising the term.

We’ll use the Samsung 55in Q95T as our example here. It's the top-end 4K QLED for 2020 and we gave it a glowing five-star review. Its full title is QE55Q95TATXXU – a bit of a mouthful, you’ll agree. Q stands for QLED, and all of Samsung’s current QLED models begin like this. Following that is E for EU, meaning that it was manufactured for the European market. Buying in the UK but don’t see an 'E'? You may want to double-check that it isn’t an import that won’t work here. The North American designations are ‘UN’ and ‘QN’. 55 denotes the size of the TV in inches, a number which will obviously change based on the TV’s size. According to Samsung, the next Q is basically a spare letter that also means QLED. And why not?

95 indicates the model series. The higher the number, the more premium the TV tends to be. T is the marker for Samsung’s 2020 TVs; in 2019 it was 'R', but for 2020 Samsung skipped right over 'S' and went for 'T' instead. The A after that indicates a type of (unspecified) design or feature; Samsung says “this might designate a different stand”, for instance. Rounding it out are four letters, TXXU, which are only relevant to the manufacturer and retailers.

To summarise, then, QE55Q95TATXXU is a 2020 55in Samsung QLED 95-series TV made for the European market.

Samsung TV model numbers explained: Samsung Crystal UHD TVs

Sitting below the QLED range is Samsung’s lineup of Crystal UHD TVs, formerly known simply as 4K UHD TVs. Essentially, these TVs are like Samsung's QLED range but without the quantum dots. They’re all LCD LED-lit TVs that have an Ultra HD (or 4K) resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and support at least one form of HDR. QLEDs may get all the press, but some of the high-end Crystal models still have premium features such as multi-smart assistants and Ambient Mode. Crystal UHD TVs tend to be more affordable than QLEDs: prices range from £329-£2,199.

The model numbers on Samsung Crystal UHD TVs follow a similar format to those seen on QLEDs, but there are some subtle differences worth knowing about. We’ll take the £499 43in Samsung TU8507, full name UE43TU8507UXXU, as our example here. According to Samsung’s website, the U at the start means LED. Since all QLEDs begin with a ‘Q’, it’s easy to differentiate between QLED and non-QLED ranges right off the bat. E, as established is shorthand for EU, meaning that this model is intended for use in the European market only. The number 43 on the model number tells us the size of the display in inches.

T is Samsung’s code for products made in 2020. On Samsung TV model numbers, the character that follows the screen size is often (not always) the indicator for the year of manufacture. Next up is Uwhich, again, supposedly stands for LED. More usefully, 8507identifies the series of TV that this model belongs to. Generally speaking, a Samsung Cyrstal UHD 8-series model would be more premium than a 7-series. Rounding it off we have UXXU, a code meant for Samsung internal use only.

And now that you know UE43TU8507UXXU is a 2020 43in Samsung LED (or LCD LED-lit, to be specific) 8507-series TV made for Europe, you can go off and decode Crystal UHD model numbers on Samsung’s website to your heart’s content.

Samsung TV model numbers explained: Samsung The Frame and The Serif TVs

Samsung’s lifestyle line is split into two distinct categories, The Frame and The Serif. Each Frame TV is built to resemble a picture frame, the intention being that you can mount it on your wall at home and display artwork when it’s not in use. This, in theory, allows it to blend in seamlessly with the aesthetic of whatever room it’s in.

Serif TVs are also designed to display digital art, but instead of being wall-mounted they can either stand freely on their long legs or sit atop a flat surface. Serifs also have unusually thick frames that you may choose to use as a mantlepiece of sorts – if Samsung’s promotional stills are anything to go by, anyway.

The 2020 Serif and 2020 Frame are both QLEDs, and thus their model numbers begin with ‘Q’. QE50LS03TAUXXU is a typical lifestyle TV model number. The TV is otherwise known as 2020 50" The Frame Art Mode QLED 4K HDR Smart TV.

Q is QLED, E means made for Europe and 50 equals 50in. LS means lifestyle, and any TV you see with ‘LS’ will be either a Frame or Serif model. 03 is the model series, T tells us it’s made in 2020, A refers to its build features and UXXU means nothing whatsoever.

And with that, we’ve covered the model numbers of every single type of TV currently sold by Samsung. This page will continue to receive updates as and when Samsung releases new models. We look forward to the TVs themselves, and indeed to the mind-boggling model numbers that will inevitably come with them.


Samsung TV model numbers explained: Samsung LED TVs

Further down the TV technology rung, we have Samsung's range of LED TVs. These are more budget-friendly, typically smaller options with FHD (1,920 x 1,080) resolutions. Being affordable FHD models, they tend not to support HDR content. As always, LED is short for LCD LED-lit.

Here’s where it gets a bit confusing. Like Samsung’s 4K UHD TVs, its non-4K LED TVs all have model numbers beginning with ‘U’. There’s no unique letter code to differentiate the 4K, FHD and HD models, so you’ll have to rely on retailer product descriptions and pay closer attention to specs tables. Thankfully, most websites and shops make it easy: on Samsung’s website, the UE32T4300AKXXU is listed as the 2020 32" T4300 HD Smart TV.

READ NEXT: Cheapest UK TV deals

Now let’s pick apart the model number. As you’ll know by now, U means it’s an LED, E means it’s made for Europe, and 32 means it has a diagonal panel size of 32in. T tells us it’s from 2020, and that's something of a rarity - it's one of only two non-4K LED models Samsung made since 2018. 4300 is the unique code of the model series, which sets it apart from other Samsung LED TVs. A means it has a certain type of “feature or design” – it may refer to the TV’s stand – while the KXXU can be safely ignored.

Most consumers don’t realize that Samsung model numbers have special coding schemes for identifying each HDTV’s details and history. Yes, there are specific meanings for Samsung HDTV model numbers available for North America, Europe, Asia, etc.

Samsung TV Model Numbers Explained

The codes used in the model number identify the series with the manufactured year, type of backlighting (LED, QLED, Lamps, etc.), resolution of the screen (HD, UHD, 8K, etc.), design changes of the same item, and much more.

Overall, Samsung TV model codes have changed several times over the years, which makes things confusing. But hopefully, this article provides enough info to identify your Samsung TV model’s details or one that you want to purchase.

Understanding Samsung HDTV Model Numbers

To interpret Samsung TV model numbers, you need charts. Samsung developed several model code schemes, including but not limited toQLED TVs (2017 and up), HD/Full HD/UHD/SUHD TVs (2017 and up), and HD/Full HD/UHD TVs (2008-2016), which is why Samsung includes an identifier in the model number. The SUHD models also have the same resolution as UHD, except they add new features and enhancements, with the “S” meaning “Super.”

If your model does not reflect the correct modeling scheme found in the charts below (based on year and type), look for the one that matches closest to your model.

When viewing the image above, you see the Class Q60T QLED 4K UHD HDR Smart TV of 2020, which has different sizes, and there are more than what is shown. The longwinded characters are the complete model numbers in the Q60 series of TVs.

For the QLED image above with model number QN50Q60TAFXZA, the following interpretation applies:

  • “Q” represents the type of screen: QLED
  • “N” represents the region: North America
  • “50” represents the size class: 50-inch (NOT the actual diagonal size)
  • “Q60T” represents the model series: Q60T series
  • “A” represents the release code, which is 1st generation
  • “F” represents the tuner type, which is USA/Canada
  • “X” represents a feature or design code for the model
  • “ZA” represents manufacturing information: for Samsung use only

Some models may use older/previous model number schemes due to transitions in labeling. For instance, The QLED TV with model number UN65KS8000FXZA is a 2016 model that should start with a “Q” and have a “Q” in the series section, but it uses the “2017 and up” model scheme for UHD TVs. Technically, it should use the “2017 and up” QLED modeling scheme.

Now that you have an “introductory” idea of how Samsung creates their TV model numbers, here are the details. Note that Samsung TVs get organized in various model code schemes.

Samsung QLED Model Number Codes for 2017 and Up

In 2017, Samsung developed new Quantum Dot screen models, known as QLED, and the model shown above is part of that series. However, Samsung explored Quantum Dot technology before their 2017 models, and they used variations of it, such as their SUHD lineup in 2016. Regardless, Samsung didn’t officially market Quantum technology until the 2017 QLEDs were released.

The technology features electronic nanocrystals that emit true monochromatic red, green, and blue light. In the image above for 2020 Samsung QLED TVs, you see the model number QN50Q60TAFXZA. The chart below decodes those numbers, and it also applies to any Samsung QLED models 2017 and up.

Samsung HD/UHD/4K/8K Model Codes for 2017 and Up

In 2017, Full HD TVs (1080p) were gradually getting replaced by UHD TVs (2160p). For UHD Samsung TVs after 2017, the model number scheme changed to reflect new features and better organization. A 2016 UHD TV had a model number like UN55KU6300, and a 2017 model was UN49M5300AFXZA. The chart below provides more details on the Non-QLED, 2017+ Samsung HD, UHD, 4K, and 8K model codes.

Samsung HD/Full HD/UHD/SUHD Model Number Codes 2008-2016

Between 2008 and 2016, Samsung produced many HD, Full HD, UHD, and SUHD TVs. “HD” features 720p resolution while “Full HD” features 1920 x 1080 (1080p). “UHD” is 3840 x 2160 (2160p), but some models may be labeled or described as “4K” or “4K UHD” by manufacturers and sellers. The two are not the same.

Technically speaking, “4K” is the digital cinema standard (4,096 by 2,160), while “UHD” is consumer display quality. As for “SUHD,” it has the same resolution as UHD but with added enhancements, as previously mentioned.

Samsung model numbers between 2008 and 2016 are represented by “S” for SUHD, “U” for UHD, and “H” for Full HD. There is also a “P” for Plasma in 2014 models and earlier.The screen type is usually found in the sixth character of the model number.

Since video technology has evolved into various display types and resolutions, Samsung added the “U” code to the beginning of the model number to represent an LED TV. In contrast, the older TVs included “H” for DLP and “P” for Plasma. The image below shows codes typically found in 2008-2016 Samsung model numbers.

Understanding Samsung TV Series

Websites tend to create confusion regarding Samsung TV Model descriptions, especially the TV model series. One site will label the TV as Series 8 (or 8 Series), while another calls it a TU8000 Series TV. Technically, both are correct. There are TVs in the TU8000 series, and it is a series 8 TV. Another common term used in place of “Series” is “Class.” You’ll see some websites title the above series as Class 8 instead.

The Samsung UN55KS9000FXZA is a Series 9 TV in the 9000 model range. As referenced in the above model charts, 55 represents a 55-inch screen. In that same 9000 model range within Series 9, there is a 65-inch (UN65KS9000FXZA) and a 75-inch (UN75KS9000FXZA). Furthermore, there are the “9500” models that are part of Series 9.

All of Samsung’s TVs, regardless of screen resolution or technology, are categorized into Series based on their rank. For instance, a Series 9 TV offers Samsung’s advanced picture quality and display technology. At the lower end of the scale, a 5 Series TV is more of an entry-level model. You can also look at the series number as being a way to determine the latest models. While Series 5 TVs were once the latest and the greatest, Series 9 has brought new technology and features for better visual experiences.

Hopefully, this article has helped in identifying your Samsung TV model number details. You can always bookmark this page and reference the charts later as needed. Some select Samsung TVs are specialized models, such as outdoor models and vertical TVs that are slim and tall, just like a tablet turned sideways. Those types of TVs were excluded, mostly since they are limited models that won’t fit into a particular Samsung TV model scheme.

The 3 Best Samsung TVs of 2021 Reviews and Smart Features

Smart Features

In the infancy of smart TVs, Samsung was the leader in functionality and smart features. This isn't to say that they were very good, as it took quite a few years for Smart TV platforms to mature into something comparable to external set-top boxes. However, other companies have caught up to Samsung and offer similar all-around performance, like Roku TV or LG's webOS.

Samsung has constantly been updating its Tizen platform to make sure it competes with its competitors. In 2017, they added voice capabilities to their remote and smart platform, making it easier to navigate through menus. The 2020 update featured a new, sleeker look with a 'Dark Mode' that isn't as bright as the white theme in older versions.

In 2018, Samsung added their Bixby virtual assistant to most TVs except for some entry-level models. Bixby can integrate into Samsung's SmartThings smart home platform, allowing you to control compatible devices ranging from lights, outlets, door locks, and even your fridge.

Interface

Samsung Smart Interface

The interface is very simple and easy to navigate. Everything is along a toolbar that appears at the bottom of your screen. You'll find downloaded apps here as well, and you can quickly access the different inputs and settings. The interface works well, and there are many animations; on lower-end TVs, these can be slow.

Ad-free

Samsung Ads

Unfortunately, Samsung's Smart Hub also shows ads on the home screen. It shows up in the same row as the installed Samsung Smart TV apps, and they can't be disabled.

You can opt out of personalized advertising in the settings, but that, unfortunately, only means that you'll see very repetitive ads instead of targeted ones.

Apps & Features

Samsung Apps Picture

The app selection is pretty extensive nowadays. All the popular video and music services are available and more. Fortunately, the search function is quite good, and results come up very quickly. Like LG's webOS and Google TV on Sony TVs, Samsung TVs have an excellent selection of apps, and the vast majority of streaming services are available.

Voice Controls

Voice Command was overhauled in 2017, and they're pretty good now. Other smart interfaces were updated in 2018 to search for content, apps, and change settings, something Samsung has been able to do for a few years. Even more in-depth stuff like calibration settings are only a button press away, which is quite nice.

  • Changing inputs
  • Launching apps
  • Basic online searches, including "What time is it?" or "How's the weather in New York?"
  • Change some settings

It's also possible to search within apps, but only a few apps are supported at this moment. It isn't possible to search Netflix, for example, but it's possible to search YouTube.

Remote

Samsung Smart TV Remote

Samsung updated their remote with the release of the 2021 TVs. It features the same buttons as remotes from previous years, except it has a redesigned body with brushed plastic on the bottom. There are quick-access buttons to popular streaming services and for your voice control. It's pretty minimal compared to traditional TV remotes, as you don't get a Numpad, but you still get navigation buttons. It's small and sleek-looking.
What sets this remote apart from others is that the QLED lineup comes with a solar-powered remote. This means that you can charge it via the solar panel on the back, and if that's not possible, you can still charge it via USB-C, but it doesn't come with a USB-C cable. The entry-level AU8000 from 2021 has the same remote, but it uses disposable batteries instead.

Known Issues

This is less common now than in previous years, but Samsung TVs often have issues with Wi-Fi connections. They'll randomly stop functioning after leaving the TV off for a while and require the connection to be set up again, which is quite annoying.
