Samsung's S95B QD-OLED TV finally has a release and price, but where's the 'QD' bit?

Is it possible that this isn't actually their QD-OLED model? The "learn more" section of the website doesn't even mention quantum dots at all. All we get is a bit about the "Neural Quantum Processor 4k ". Are they saving their true QD-OLED for an entirely different TV? It might explain the "surprisingly low" price.

I suspect this is due to yields being so low (as recently reported) and intentionally not wanting to drum up too much excitement for a product they don't have supply for.

There's a lot of excitement for Dell's new gaming monitor using these QD-OLED panels, essentially a TV cut in half, which is sold for $1299. At a yield of ~33% (reported figure) for a TV panel, the yield for 'half a TV' is almost 4x that. Four monitors for $5196 total rather than one TV for $2200, even after giving a third party a sizeable cut, is likely a better proposition for Samsung Displays who will prefer selling them to Dell and other partners for gaming monitors while they're stuck at low volume, until they can supply all markets without restraint.

The Dell QD-OLED isn’t 4k though.
