Before I start giving you the knowledge you want, let’s first have a quick look at top points below.
The Samsung Q900R 8K QLED TV you are watching above will be available in September end 2018. While on the other side LG has also introduced 8K OLED TV but pricing and availability has not been announced by the company. The main difference between LG & Samsung is that LG variant sports an 88-inch, while Samsung Q900R 8K QLED TV comes in four screen sizes – 65inch, 75-inch, 82-inch, and 85-inch.
Samsung won’t release pricing information until the TV goes on sale in September end or in the month of October.
Samsung 8K TV Specifications
During its IFA presentation today, the Samsung unveiled its first 8K QLED TV that’ll actually be available for purchase. The Q900’s 85-inch screen is packed with more than 33 million pixels, four times the resolution of conventional 4K TVs.
You’ll also find most of Samsung’s current QLED features in this TV, like automatically recognize connected devices; ambient mode, which lets it blend into your favorite wall, a single optical cable connection that handles power and video inputs both; many features like news, photos, and the weather. Samsung has not explained about the date of availability for the public, but at least Samsung is one step closer to being real than its last 8K TV.
I hope you are aware of that plenty of sources exist in 4K resolution only these days including YouTube, Netflix, Vudu, Amazon, and 4K Blu-ray discs. If you are planning to buy this TV then remember there are basically no 8K movies or TV shows available right now even on online video services.
