Display of QLED 8K TVs

QLED is short for quantum-dot light emitting diode or quantum-dot LED. QLED is a technology used in some flat-panel digital displays, utilizing QD (quantum dots) rather than OLEDs to create the component RGB (red, green, and blue) colors of the display. The term "QLED" was first announced at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2017 by Samsung to brand their proprietary QD technologies.

Compared to the AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) displays used in many high-end Smart TVs and flagship mobile devices, QLEDs can provide greater brightness and a broader color gamut. When illuminated, the red, green, and blue quantum dots can produce light frequencies that are closer to pure color.

As of 2020, QLED technology is available to consumers in select high-end display products, including 4K and 8K TVs.
