Samsung announces pricing and availability of its QLED 8K TV range
Samsung has announced the Australian availability and pricing for its 2019 QLED 8K television range which will usher in a whole new high quality home viewing experience.
The Samsung Q900 QLED 8K TVs will be available in three sizes – 82-inch, 75-inch and 65-inch – and will go on sale on April 1.
The Samsung 8K TVs have four times the resolution of 4K TVs and 16 times more pixels than a full HD TV at more than 33 million pixels filling the screen.
The range is designed to meet the demand for larger screens that also provide high picture quality and incredible performance.
Samsung today also opened pre-orders for the 8K TV range and added a special offer.
Customers who pre-order any Samsung QLED 8K from Samsung’s online store will receive a bonus Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphone valued at $1,499.
“Samsung’s first QLED 8K range reinforces our commitment to delivering the best possible viewing experience for our customers,” says Jeremy Senior, head of consumer electronics at Samsung Australia.
“Samsung’s QLED 8K offering will set a new standard in what Australians will expect from our ultra-premium offering in home entertainment and is truly something you need to see to understand.
“Australians are buying bigger TVs each year and with a larger screen size comes the need for a clearer, more detailed picture.
“Samsung QLED 8K technology delivers our best possible viewing experience for the large screen format.
“We’re excited to announce today’s pre-order offer that includes our flagship mobile Samsung Galaxy S10+, which brings together the best of Samsung’s mobile and TV technology.”
Onboard the Samsung 8K TV is HDR10+ and Ultra Bright III which calls the shots on the TV’s contrast and colour.
At the heart of the Samsung QLED 8K TV is AI upscaling which uses machine learning to analyse content and upscale to 8K quality.
Other features include:
One Clear Cable– this is an all-in-one clear cable that frees TV space from unsightly cords. Combining the optical cable and power into one thin five-metre cord, offering more freedom to decide where and how to place the TV.
Ambient Mode– integrate the TV screen to suit a rooms interior décor and design. Display art or photos, or time and weather. Or take a picture of the wall and set it onscreen, so the TV seamlessly blends in while it is not on.
Smart TV enhancements– Samsung TV’s work with Smart Things, Bixby, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or Apple AirPlay (coming soon) offering choice to control the connected home.
One Remote – control a range compatible devices with One Remote Control and get quick access to things like Netflix, YouTube, Xbox or a compatible Soundbar.
