Samsung’s flagship QLED 8K TV is the industry’s first 8K TV to combine a striking, ultra-thin form factor, premium 8K picture quality, and impressive surround-sound audio. The 2020 QLED 8K TV introduces the ‘Infinity Screen,’ which produces a screen-to-body ratio of 99% to create an unprecedented viewing experience.

Raju Pullan, Senior Vice President, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung India, says in a company statement, “Building on the strong demand for the QLED 8K TV line up launched last year, we are also introducing the 2020 QLED 8K TV range that comes with industry-leading picture quality, breath-taking design and smart capabilities that are as useful as they are innovative.”

Samsung QLED (Quantum Light-Emitting Diode) 8K TVs come with Real 8K Resolution, 8K AI Upscaling, Quantum Processor 8K, and Quantum HDR. Samsung 8K QLED TVs come with 33 million pixels, four times the resolution of 4K UHD TVs, and 16 times that of a Full HD TV, allowing consumers to immerse themselves into the display. These 33 million pixels provide sharper resolution giving a feeling of realness and presence with exceptionally true-to-life picture quality.

Infinity Screen essentially eliminates the bezel around the display, Samsung’s Infinity Screen offers a screen-to-body ratio of nearly 99%, the highest in the industry. The result is that when consumers watch from the average viewing distance of 10-15 feet, the bezels seem to disappear, creating an effect where the screen appears to float mid-air.

The new range comes with support for a wide range of OTT platforms such as YouTube, Amazon Prime, Netflix, ZEE5, SonyLIV, Voot, and more.

Samsung’s new range of QLED 8K TVs will be priced at ₹4.99 lakhs for the 65-inch version, ₹9.99 lakh for the 75-inch version, ₹14.29 lakhs for the 82-inch version and ₹15.79 lakhs for the 85-inch version. The 2020 QLED 4K TV line-up would be available from 43-inch to 75 -inch screen sizes.

QLED 8K and QLED 4K models will be available at all Samsung Smart Plazas, leading consumer electronic stores and across online platforms, including Samsung’s official online store Samsung Shop.
