According to a report in The Elec, Samsung is planning on launching a raft of MiniLED 8K TVs in 2022, using its "Neo QLED" technology. Samsung's 2022 flagship lineup will also feature new 4K OLED TVs, including some with panels sourced from LG.

A report in The Elec claims that Samsung will be launching a number of 8K MiniLED TVs next year, with Neo QLED panels. The report also stated that we should expect to see new 4K OLED models as well next year, including some with panels sourced from LG. 

MiniLED displays are a variant of conventional LCD panels. However, they feature significantly smaller backlight diodes than mainstream LCD displays, with top-tier MiniLED TVs featuring thousands of discrete dimming zones. When compared to OLED, MiniLED displays promise far higher brightness levels, for a better HDR experience. While MiniLED local dimming isn't quite on par with OLED's per-pixel approach, it's leaps and bounds better than the HDR experience on a conventional, edge-lit panel. 

What's especially surprising about the report are the details about Samsung's sales targets. The Korean giant expects to shift over 3 million 8KTV units in 2022. This is more than Samsung's 2 million unit target for 4K OLED TVs and a surprisingly ambitious number for 8K technology, considering how until now, 8KTVs and monitors have only been available in the ultrapremium segment.
