Samsung has announced today pricing for its new range of 8K LED TVs.
At these price points, they are not TVs for everyone, but are certainly aimed at those who are looking for the best screen images that current technology can provide.
The pricing announced for the Australian market is as follows:
- 82-inch Q900 8K QLED RRP $17,499
- 75-inch Q900 8K QLED RRP $12,999
- 65-inch Q900 8K QLED RRP $9,999
The Q900 range will be offered in 82-inch, 75-inch and 65-inch screen sizes, which Samsung claims are designed to meet Australian demand for larger screen formats.
By virtue of their size and scale, larger screen sizes have a need for a clearer and more detailed image, which is what 8K aims to provide.To achieve an 8K resolution, the Samsung 8K QLED produces four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV and 16 times more pixels than a full HD TV.
The Samsung QLED 8K range comes with AI Upscaling that uses the power of machine learning to analyse and upscale content to 8K resolution for the best possible viewing experience. Although there is currently limited native 8K content the 8K Quantum Processor can recognise and upscale all content whether through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or even mobile mirroring so that this content appears in 8K resolution.
Other key features of this new range include an all-in-one clear cable that frees TV space from unsightly cords by combining the optical cable and power into one thin five-metre cord; Ambient Mode which integrates the TV screen to suit a room’s interior décor and design and One Remote where a range of compatible devices can be controlled with a single remote control for quick access to things like Netflix, YouTube, Xbox or a compatible Soundbar.
Common with other models in the 2019 Samsung TV range are Smart TV enhancements where the TV will work with Smart Things, Bixby, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or Apple AirPlay
