Question Should I wait 2021 TVs for optimal use with next generation consoles?

Aug 8, 2020

I am asking for some advice in view of the purchase of my first audio-video system, to be used above all for movies and video games.

The audio part will be composed of the upcoming Denon AVC-X3700H with 5.1.2 Atmos system consisting of Elac Debut 2.0 or Dali Oberon.

For the TV, the budget will be 3500 euros, so I can choose between a 65 "high-end OLED / QLED, or a 75" Full Array LED / QLED.

I wonder if it makes sense to wait for the 2021 models, in view of use with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
I imagine that in a year the HDMI 2.1 standard will be more widespread and therefore there will be more choice. (And maybe HDMI 2.1 will appear on the new Sony Master Series, possibly alongside a successor for the X1 Ultimate processor.)
And maybe in 2021 we will see the first Samsung TVs with the new QD-OLED technology.

Or should I better stop waiting and start now to properly enjoy movies and video games, without waiting for another year?

Among the 2020 models, I am currently considering these:

Samsung QE65Q90TATXXU
Samsung QE75Q90TATXXU
Samsung QE75Q80TATXXU
Sony KD-75XH9005

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.


The Samsung models have HDMI 2.1. Because your focus is gaming, I'm not sure if OLED is right for you, due to issues with image retention and screen burn.

I don't think you'll gain anymore by waiting another year.


I don’t know where about you are quoting in euros but do they still sell the Samsung Q950R? Because that would give you 8K for gaming and HDMI 2.1 the TV is also a corker. It might be quite cheap too being a 2019 model.
