The ultra-large Ultra HD TV is now shipping.
Samsung has announced the launch of its 88-inch Q9 QLED 4K TV in North America and Korea. The new model joins the previously released 65-inch QN65Q9 and the 75-inch QN75Q9.
"At Samsung, 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 Jongsuk Chu, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "With their superior picture quality and innovative features, we are confident that our QLED TV lineup will continue to drive sales and solidify Samsung’s leadership in the global TV market."
The 88-inch Q9 display uses Samsung's new metal quantum dot technology to deliver wide color gamut support and 100 percent color volume. Likewise, the set includes HDR10 support and is among the first displays to include new HDR10+ support (but not Dolby Vision). In addition, the unit features a boundless 360 Design and a 1.88mm, transparent optical cable (dubbed the Invisible Connection), allowing users to connect peripheral devices without messy wires. Finally, a No Gap Wall-mount is also offered, enabling the screen to be mounted flush against a user's wall.
Samsung's 88-inch Class Q9F QLED 4K TV is now available in the US for an MSRP of $20,000. The ultra-large model is also set to launch in Europe later this month. In addition, the 65-inch QN65Q9 is currently on sale for $3,998 and the 75-inch QN75Q9 is currently on sale for $8,998. And beyond the Q9 Series, Samsung's QLED lineup also includes the Q8 QLED Ultra HD TV Series and the Q7 QLED Ultra HD TV Series.
