Samsung confirms availability and pricing for QLED 8K TVs

With pre-order bonus.

Samsung’s new Q900 QLED 8K television range is now available for pre-order from Samsung’s online store with a bonus Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphone valued at RRP $1,499. The range will go on sale at Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys stores from April 1, 2019.

The Q900 TV range will be available in 82-inch for RRP $17,499, 75-inch for $12,999 and 65-inch for $9,999.

The Samsung 8K QLED integrates HDR10+ and Ultra Bright III to manage the TV’s contrast and colour, optimising brightness levels and minimising the impact of glare and reflection.

AI Upscaling uses machine learning to analyse and upscale content to 8K resolution. Despite the limited native 8K content currently available, the 8K Quantum Processor can recognise and upscale all content whether through a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or mobile mirroring. In addition, the QLED 8K range features Direct Full Array Elite for enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control.

It will also include features found on predecessor Samsung QLED TV models including One Clear Cable, Ambient Mode, One Remote and Smart TV enhancements compatible with SmartThings, Bixby, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple AirPlay coming soon.

Samsung Australia head of consumer electronics, Jeremy Senior said, Samsung’s first QLED 8K range reinforces our commitment to delivering the best possible viewing experience for our customers.

“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.”

Samsung will announce further information regarding its 2019 TV range including its 4K QLED and UHD TVs in early April. It will also kick off the second year of its sponsorship as the Official Consumer Electronics partner of The AFL with announcements regarding select game day activations.
