Samsung India has announced the launch of the world’s first QLED 8K TV – the Samsung QLED 8K TV. The TV is targeted to luxury homes and is a new industry benchmark in TV technology. The key USP of the TV is its real 8K resolution, 8K AI Upscaling, Quantum Processor 8K, and Quantum HDR, which work in complete synchronization to give the users a stunning 8k experience. The TV comes in four size variants: 98-inch (247 cm), 82-inch (207 cm), 75-inch (189cm) and 65-inch (163 cm). The TV packs in 33 million pixels, four times the resolution of 4K UHD TVs and 16 times the resolution of full-HD TVs. This enables the users to enjoy an unprecedented immersive TV viewing experience.

The Samsung QLED 8K TVs have been priced at Rs. 10,99,900 for the 75-inch model. The 82-inch model comes with a price tag of Rs. 16,99,900 while the 98-inch variant of the Samsung TV comes at a price tag of Rs. 59,99,900. The 98-inch model is a “made to order” model. The 65-inch model will be announced shortly and will be available for purchase from July onwards.

Due to the 8K AI Upscaling powered by the Quantum Processor 8K, the Samsung TVs ensures that the content will be upscaled to 8K resolution irrespective of whether a user is watching content through HDMI, USB or a set-top box. The Samsung TV can transform any content into 8K resolution irrespective of the original resolution and can deliver superior levels of brightness, sound and enhance overall output.

The new TVs enable customers to use voice commands to control their TV. The TVs are equipped with Bixby 2.0 as well as Google Assistant to access content using voice commands. The Far Field Voice Capability makes the remote of the TV almost redundant. The new Samsung TVs also support Apple AirPlay 2 that enables consumers to mirror and play content from their Apple devices directly to their Samsung QLED TVs.

The TVs are equipped with an Ambient Mode feature that transforms the QLED 8K into a piece of art while it hangs on the wall. This is possible due to a no-gap wall mount which allows the TV to blend with the interior of the house.

Apart from the QLED 8K range, Samsung has also updated its QLED TV series for 2019. The 65-inch Q90 model will be priced at Rs. 3,99,900, while the Q80 models will come with a price tag of Rs. 2,09,900 (55-inch) to Rs. 6,49,900 (75-inch). The Q70 models will come to you at a price of Rs. 1,69,900 (55-inch) to Rs. 2,79,900 (65-inch). The Q60 models are priced from Rs. 94,900 (43-inch) to Rs. 7,49,900 (82-inch). These models will be available for purchase from June 2019 onwards.

Both the Samsung QLED 8K and QLED TV range can be bought from all leading Samsung Smart Plazas, consumer electronic stores and across online platforms, including Samsung’s official online store and Samsung’s physical retail outlets.
