View content at four times the resolution of 1080p with the Samsung Q8FN 55" Class HDR UHD Smart QLED TV. This TV has a 54.6" LED-backlit LCD display, and incorporates Motion Rate 240 technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. It is compatible with the HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG HDR formats to provide a wider color gamut with compatible content and other equipment for more vivid images.

The Q8FN has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to allow access to your favorite apps and Internet-based content, plus content sharing and screen mirroring with your other smart devices such as your smartphone or tablet. With four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition video sources. Two USB ports are also onboard for connecting multimedia peripherals like flash drives.

Content acquired via certain apps may require subscription to a service.

Q Color with DCI-P3 Compatibility

Courtesy of the Quantum Dots, the Q8FN series TV can produce up to a billion shades of color. Meeting 100% of the DCI-P3 color space helps keep color from fading in bright scenes.

Q Contrast Elite

The full-array LED backlight is divided into discretely controlled zones that adjust automatically to help show detail and depth from ultra black to pure white.

Ultra Black Elite

The anti-reflective screen helps reduce glare and deepen black levels.

Q HDR Elite with HDR10+

HDR10+ is designed to optimize every scene for color, contrast, and details, and is supported by a number of studios and content distributors.


The UHDA's ULTRA HD PREMIUM logo identifies products and services that meet or exceed strict performance levels for 4K resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), and wide color spectrum (more lifelike colors), along with recommendations for immersive audio (multi-dimensional sound), among others.

4K Ultra HD Connected

The Q8FN series complies with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) 4K Ultra High-Definition Connected definition requirements.

Metal Alloy Quantum Dots

The inorganic design of the quantum dots helps them resist fading over time, enhancing the effective life of the TV.

Q Engine

The Q Engine processor is designed to optimize your content for 4K clarity, color, and HDR.

Motion Rate 240

Motion Rate 240 technology helps digitally smooth out the blur commonly associated with fast motion.

Q Style Clean Cable Solution

The Clean Cable Solution is designed to neatly manage cords for a clean look. Simply plug in your cables, push them into the embedded cable lines on the back of the TV, then run them through the stand.

Ambient Mode

  • Décor: Enhance your living room by mimicking your wall pattern to blend in with the space around the TV.
  • Information Hub: Get useful information, such as weather and major headlines, displayed on the screen.
  • Personal Photos: Turn your living room into your personal gallery by displaying photos from your mobile device or the Samsung Cloud.
  • Play Music: Find your favorite tracks or playlists with Bixby's voice command or use Bluetooth to play music from your phone.

Boundless 360° Design

With virtually no bezel, the TV is designed to look attractive from nearly any angle.

Bixby Voice

Bixby helps make it easy to search for content, flip channels, or ask questions, such as the current weather, using only your voice. Click voice recognition on your remote or compatible mobile device, and Bixby is at your command.

OneRemote with Voice Assistance

Spend more time watching and less time searching. The OneRemote, voice assistance, and a universal guide help you find streaming and live shows. The OneRemote also automatically detects and controls all your compatible connected devices and content.

Universal Guide

The universal guide brings your favorite content from multiple devices and apps together in one easy-to-browse menu. It recommends popular shows and can make custom recommendations tailored just for you.

Your SmartThings Hub

The SmartThings app connects your TV to a range of compatible smart devices and appliances. From your refrigerator to your smartphone, change room temperatures, see what's in the refrigerator or who's at your door, all from the comfort of your couch. Download the SmartThings app on your mobile device to control and monitor your TV and connected devices all in one screen.

Designed for Seamless Setup with Your Smartphone

Simply turn on your TV, and it will connect to your smartphone automatically. Your phone will then share Wi-Fi network information with the TV. If your phone is linked to a Samsung account, it will automatically be shared with the TV, so no separate login is required. After a future firmware update, you'll be able to choose the apps on your phone that you also want on the TV; they will then be copied into the TV's Smart Hub and you'll automatically be logged in.


If you have laundry in your compatible washing machine, you'll get a popup message in the corner of the TV letting you know when it's done, so you can enjoy your TV shows without thinking about it.

TV Plus

With TV Plus, you're just a few clicks away from a library of UHD 4K and HDR content.

Sync & Share

Sync your TV to your compatible smartphone to access and control your content on the screen. You can also continue your entertainment non-stop as you move around the house. With Sync and Share, you can grab your popcorn from the kitchen without pausing or missing a scene.

Steam Link

The Steam Link app lets you stream your favorite games seamlessly with enhanced graphics and speed.

Auto Game Mode

Auto Game Mode helps produce an enhanced gaming experience with minimal input lag.

HDMI Connectivity

HDMI connectivity enables digital audio and video over a single cable. One HDMI input is ARC-compatible for simplified connection to your compatible home theater system.

Can the "Motion Rate 240 for Reduced Motion Blur" ...

Can the "Motion Rate 240 for Reduced Motion Blur" feature be turned off? I hate the look of this feature. It's fine for sports, but most Hollywood films are in 24fps and look good WITH the natural motion blur of 24fps.
