But it is the new 8K-capable Q9S that also has my attention, which isn't quite as big as LG's impressive 88-inch 4K OLED in terms of size, but with its 85-inch panel at 8K, I'd take the 7680x4320 resolution of 3840x2160.

Samsung's new flagship 8K TV uses a "proprietary algorithm" that will upscale lower-res video up to their Super Hi-Vision screen at 8K. There's also AI inside, which Samsung says will be able to "learn from itself" over time, which is scary and awesome, all mixed together.
