Samsung likes big screens and it cannot lie. A few weeks ago, we posted about the 49-inch ultrawide gaming monitor for gamers. The company has since revealed its most ambitious TV until now, the impressive 88-inch QLED TV. The South Korean company guarantees the TV will resist burnt-in pixels for at least the first decade. It supports a 4K Ultra HD resolution as well as HDR. It is also compatible with Samsung’s all-in-one smart remotes. (At this point, we’re sold!)
“We are aiming to expand our footprint in the ultra-premium TV market with our ultra-large QLED TV models that embody the perfect combination of technology and art,” said Samsung.
The Q9 88-inch QLED TV will achieve 100% color volume. It has a bezel-less design and also features a no-gap wall mount. With the ultrawide TV, Samsung aims to remove the cable clutter through the 1.88mm Invisible Connection transparent optical cable. This optical cable will run from connected peripheral devices to the hub.
The Samsung Q9 TV stretches 200cm (78 inches) wide and stands 170cm (66 inches) tall. It is an upgrade from the existing QLED TV lineup, which boasts of 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch variations.
This year in June, Samsung also launched the 82-inch premium UHD TV, as a part of its ambitious strategy to extend its offering to a wider variety of ultrawide screen models.
Drop $20,000 and the Samsung Q9 TV is all yours. You can also order the project management package at an additional cost of $38,500. Samsung will launch the Q9 QLED TV in Southeast Asia first before extending its offering to Europe later this month.
Samsung and LG are giving consumers more options to choose from by offering an extensive range of ultrawide TV models. Right now, Samsung is the world’s leading TV manufacturer. It is trying to gain a head start in the race for giant TV arena with Q9 model. The Samsung Q9 TV will compete against 77-inch LG Signature OLED TV W that was released in July. LG has a unique line up of 4K which no other brand is able to compete against. Let’s hope Samsung has more to show in the remaining of this year.
