It’s time for new Samsung TVs, and the company didn’t skimp on options. This time around, Samsung is all-in on 8K TVs with no less than three series, each with three sizes (65, 75, 85 or 82 inches). But the standout for 8K is the Q950TS with its “infinity screen” with bezels so small you’ll stop seeing them. On the more practical end, Samsung also has 4K TVs that should be more affordable.
We say “should be” because Samsung isn’t ready to reveal full pricing yet on its TV models. But if you have plenty to spend, the 8K models have features to spare. The company is touting improved AI to help with upscaling content to look better than ever, even with a lack of 8K content for your TV.
The Q950TS, in particular, should look stunning in person thanks to its ultra-thin bezels. Samsung claims that after watching for a while, you’ll stop noticing the bezels entirely, and the TV will seem to float in your vision.
Samsung’s also touting friendliness to gamers, thanks to its Real Game Enhancer+ tech, which offers multiple variable refresh rates for a no-stutter experience. Unfortunately, the lowest end of the 4K TVs don’t get that feature.
The company is quick to point out improved audio, which would be a welcome addition for any modern TV as generally, you’ll want to purchase better speakers sooner than later. The Q950TS 8K series, in particular, can work with Samsung soundbars to combine audio for better vocal clarity.
Samsung’s also improving on its Ambient Mode, a sort of screensaver effect that should make your TV look nice when you’re not actively using it. Considering most TVs are just a giant black rectangle on the wall when you’re not using them, any help there is a nice bonus.
All in all, you’ll have plenty of choices, as spelled out by Samsung:
For 8K TVs, you can choose from the Q950TS, Q900TS, and Q800T series. The first two come in 65, 75, and 85-inch sizes. The Q800T series comes in 65, 75, and 82 inches instead and ranges between $3,500 and $7,000.
For 4K TVs, you can choose between four different series of models in a whopping seven size configurations between 43 and 85 inches. Pricing ranges between $1,000 and $4,000 though Samsung didn’t list prices for the lowest end models so it could go lower.
Some of the TVs are available for pre-order today, with more to follow at Samsung’s site.
